Hijab Styling | 10 Step Chic Hijabi Look


Salaam all,

I have had a few requests to do some hijab tutorials. Here is a hijab tutorial for a chic look accessorised with a big bow brooch/pin, a leather jacket and some lace gloves. This style probably wouldn't look too good on a person who has a wide jaw or a very round face, but inshaAllah have a go and see if it suits you.


The hijab is a stretchy and was purchased from 'Primark' Cheap and cheerful. I used to buy my hijabs from Islamic shops or markets selling predominantly Islamic clothing and hijabs.
However, recently I have been seeing some really nice scarves in high street shops, which you can use as a hijab even though they were made to be wrapped around your neck.

The thing to make sure you look at when you buy a scarf from the high street is the width (will it be big enough to give you modest coverage?) and the length (Is it long enough to be wrapped around your head?)

So without further a do lets begin!


Step 1

Wear an underscarf and place the Hijab on your head with one side longer than the other. Get the shape at the top of your head right and take the front of the scarf back to your ears, creating a small fold on either side to keep it neat.











Step 2

Pin the hijab under your chin using a no snag hijab pin or safety pin (be cautious with safety pins as they may get tangled in your scarf and create a whole when trying to take them off)







 Step 3

Once you've pinned the hijab under your chin, sort out the two sides and make sure your happy with the coverage and how tight or loose it is.












 Step 4 

Take the long side of the scarf and take it to the other side as shown in the picture.













Step 5

bring the long side around your head. If you feel it doesn't look neat as you take it around your head fold the scarf slightly or tuck the edge in as you take it round.








Step 6

At this stage you can leave your scarf loose at the back to give you some coverage, however, if your back is going to be covered and your going to wear a jacket/coat get the long side you wrapped around your head from the back, bring it to the front and take it to the side again.










Step 7

Again wrap it around your head and hold it on top of your head at the corner of the scarf.













Step 8

Slide a hijab pin into the corner of the scarf to keep it in place.














Step 9

Pin your hijab accessory or brooch to the corner of the scarf on the side of your head.









Step 10 

Pin the short side of your scarf to your shoulder by draping it over your chest and pinning to the opposite side using a safety pin (best to pin from the inside so you can't see the safety pin)











Quick check in the mirror to see if you have everything in place.










And there you have it. One chic hijabi!

The hijab pin was also purchased from a high street shop (I think it was 'Primark', even if it isnt I'm sure you can find something similar in 'Primark', 'New Look' 'H&M' etc)

I Took My Driving Test!

Salaam all, I recently took my practical driving test and I thought I would share my thoughts and feelings of that day with you inshaAllah. On Wednesday the 18th I had my driving test. I had practiced all  I could and now the rest was down to Allah swt. I tried to keep myself calm by telling myself that whatever happens it is Allah's will and if I don't pass then maybe this time I wasn't supposed to. As I stood for Taraweeh that night my heart was pounding as I asked Allah to keep me safe on the road and also for me to pass. After praying I felt a lot calmer and soon enough fell asleep. Woke up for Suhoor, prayed Fajr and tried to go back to sleep. All I could think about was how much I wanted to pass, not because I really want to drive or anything, but just because taking lessons was taking up a lot of my time and money that I could spend on other things. As well as taking up my parents time and my uncle's. I got a couple of hours of sleep and woke up bright and

Review | Unique Hijab's

Assalaamu alaikum! Sorry for going AWOL for a while there, my netbook was down so I couldn't write blog posts and post pictures )= Alhamdulillah it's working now, a BIG JazkaAllah khair to the computer fixer upper. Anyway today I have a review for an amazing hijab company in the states! =D I received 3 scarves from them yesterday, a thin scarf, a crinkle scarf and a diamante jersey scarf, they're all super cool but first I'd like to tell you a little more about the company itself. Unique Hijabs actually started on ebay and then launched it's own website in 2009 their website is: www.uniquehijabs.com They sell a huge variety of hijabs and accessories such as under scarves, sleeves and brooches. One of the things I liked about this company is something that they've written on their facebook page, which I can actually relate to as I'm sure you can too: Food for thought and Unique Hijab Facts, to help you make your next purchasing decision wisely.

Beauty Review | FW Beauty Skincare

I finally got around to writing up this much requested post on the products I bought from FWBeauty, the reason I haven't written something sooner is because I believe it's important to be using a skincare product for a while before reviewing it, as most skincare products don't give significant results after just one or two uses. I've been following the founders of FW Beauty Fatiha and Yasmine's journey online for a while now and I love seeing how successful they are becoming. They talk about their products with so much passion and confidence that I had to meet them in person and try out their skincare products. If you've been following me on Instagram you'll know that I attended the Muslim Lifestyle Show a few weeks ago and picked up the FW Beauty skincare products that I've been dying to try ever since I saw the glowing reviews. They had everything at a reduced price and I picked up the clear complexion bar, the gold elixir brightening facial
