Since hijab has become such a big part of fashion, we obviously had to give you our rundown of the best ways to wear hijab. But before we jump into that, let’s look at why Muslim women wear hijab in the first place.
Islam is a religion that is found in almost all parts of the world. Hence, the hijab is styled and worn in a myriad of ways by women depending on the weather, occasion, their facial structure, and the clothes that are predominantly worn in that region. So let’s look at the different styles of wearing hijab based on these factors.
Simple Hijab Style
Hijab Without A Pin
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!
Spread one corner of it across your chest and tie the rest of it as your hijab to showcase its gorgeous print in all its glory.
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.
Accessorize your hijab (in a nude shade, maybe?) with one of those rose gold headdresses that seem to inundate your Instagram feed every time this iconic music festival rolls around.
Side-Pinned Hijab Style
Simply wrap your scarf around your head and secure it on one side of your head with a ball pin and you’re done! Takes less than 2 minutes and doesn’t budge throughout the day.
Hijab To Show Earrings
Simply tie your hijab from slightly behind your earlobe and pop your earrings out to complete your look!
Another great way to show off your earrings while wearing a hijab is to go for a turban hijab style.
Hijab Style For Gown
Go for a turban hijab style in the same colour as your gown and accessorize it with a fancy necklace wrapped around the crown of your head to add a touch of sparkle and shine to your look.
Hijab Style For Saree
Tie it up in a simple side pinned hijab style and accessorize it with a fancy headdress to finish off the traditional look.
Hijab Style For Glasses
So your best bet is to cover your hair with a hijab tube cap and wrap your scarf loosely around your head to wear your glasses comfortably throughout the day.
Hijab Style For Jeans
Pick a scarf in a colour contrasting from your top to make a bold style statement.
Modern Hijab Style
Just drape one casually around your head, wrap both ends once around your neck and let them fall loose down your chest to create this floaty hijab style.
Winter Hijab Style
What you need is a proper knit headscarf wrapped tightly around your head and tucked snugly into a warm polo neck sweater.
Get one in a posh ivory shade and pair it with a monochrome jacket to look like a million bucks.
Summer Hijab Style
Make sure to not wrap the scarf tightly around your neck to avoid sweating too much.
Hijab Style For Round Face
Wrap your scarf a little loosely and fan it out over your chest to cover it. This will draw the eye downwards and have an elongating effect on your face.
Hijab Style For Oval Face
Go for a scarf in a bright colour and a flowy satin material to create a breezy and casual look.
Hijab Style For Big Face
Wrap your cotton scarf from slightly behind your ears the first time around. The second time around, wrap it from near your cheeks and leave the end hanging loose on one side. This will conceal your face from the sides and make it look smaller.
Hijab Style For Chubby Face
Take a long rectangular scarf and just throw it on, wrapped once around your head. And voila! Your look is complete!
Hijab Style For Diamond Face
This unintrusive turban hijab style showcases your diamond-shaped face beautifully without covering any part of it.
Hijab Style For Heart Face
Pleat one end of your scarf and drape it across your chest to take your look to the next level.
Hijab Style For Long Face
After wrapping it once around your head, take it once around your neck as well and drape the rest across your chest to make for a clean look that flatters your long face perfectly.
Hijab Style For Square Face
Put on a hijab cap and drape your hijab loosely around your face and across your chest to gently round out the sharp angles of your face.
Hijab Style For Eid
A good way to complete your killer Eid outfit is to go for a matching hijab and tie it casually around your face to make for an easy-breezy look.
Hijab Style For Engagement
A great way to showcase your fancy necklace is to drape your hijab from near your neckline (as opposed to from your chin) so as to expose your neck and neckpiece.
Hijab Style For A Wedding Bride
Tightly tie your white hijab (make sure its white shade matches the wedding dress perfectly) and top it off with an opulent headpiece to complete your royal wedding transformation.
Hijab Style For School
A tightly wound turban hijab style will rid you of both those annoyances and keep you feel comfortable and breezy throughout the day.
