Hijab. The very word conjures up images of gorgeous Muslim girls with pretty scarves tied around their head, hiding their hair from view. There’s a great deal to be said about this amazing practice that elevates a girl’s beauty by concealing something that societal standards deem necessary for her to look beautiful—her hair. So it’s quite natural and unsurprising that the hijab has made its way into mainstream fashion.
More and more girls have started wearing the hijab fearlessly, and the fashion police have started to sit up and take notice. London now hosts a Modest Fashion Week every year that showcases hijabs and full-body covering dresses in all their glory.
How To Wear Hijab – Step By Step Techniques.
1. Simple Hijab Style
- Drape a long rectangular scarf over your head with one side longer than the other.
- Pinup both sides of the scarf together under your chin.
- Flip the longer end of your scarf behind your opposite shoulder.
- Flip the same end back to the front of the other shoulder.
- Spread both the ends of your scarf so that they cover your chest.
2. Hijab Without Pins
So you snoozed your alarm one too many times, and now you’re late for work/class. You can’t possibly be fiddling with ball pins, trying to tie your hijab perfectly, right?
The solution—just take a long rectangular scarf and casually wrap it around your head once, throw one end of it over one shoulder, and you’re good to go!
3. Hijab Wrap on your Forehead
- By taking a fabric folds it in half and drape that on your face and secure it with pin below your neck.
- Take the one side of the fabric and wrap it through the face and pin it, take the same side of fabric other end and pin it on the same side of the face.
- Repeat the same process to the other end of the fabric to the opposite side of the face.
4. Wrapping Hijab With Accessories On It
Add a bit of sparkle and shine to your boring old hijab with just some jewellery lying around on your dresser.
A great way to do so is to insert some of your rings onto a loose corner of your hijab that’s hanging down one side of your face or wear a bling headband on your hijab.
5. Zig-Zag Hijab Style
- Leave the one end of fabric longer than the other one and secured it with a pin.
- For zig zag pleats take the extra fabric from the back and drag it to the front and pin it, repeat this two more times.
- Take the long end of the fabric and wrap around your face by finishing the last zig-zag pleat and secured it with a pin.
6. Hijab Style For Saree
There’s a lot that can go wrong when picking a hijab style to go with your saree. So listen to me closely.
Go for a headscarf that matches closely with your saree so that it doesn’t create too much contrast and take attention away from the saree’s beauty.
Tie it up in a simple side pinned hijab style and accessorize it with a fancy headdress to finish off the traditional look.
7. The Side Pleats Hijab style
Step 1: For side pleats, you have to wrap the fabric one end long and other one short for the pleats to make. Secured it with a pin.
Step 2: Dring the fabric from your back to the front for the nice arc on your forehead secured it with a pin.
Step 3: Wrap the long end of the fabric on your face one time then on the same wrap start making pleats. Then by bringing front from the back.
Step 4: Secured it with a pin.
Step 5: You can also cover your face with the pleated fabric and secured it with a pin
