Text symbols can add a cute and aesthetic touch overall, so it's always great to explore all the options available!

Let's get started!

Stars and Sparkles

There are lots of super cute and aesthetic stars and sparkle text icons available for you to take a look at. These would look amazing in status updates, bios and so much more.

Here are some examples to help inspire you:

  • Stars: There are lots of super cute star text symbols available, including the following: ✮ ✪ ✯ ★
  • Flowers: Lots of flower text symbols are available also, such as: ⁎ ✽✾
  • Sparkles: If you'd like to incorporate some cute sparkles in your bios or messages, for example, you could add some of the following: ✧✦⋆
