Hijab Styling | Winter Hijab



Winter is perfect for us hijabi's, you can layer your clothes and your hijab. People wear more clothes not less and you don't keep getting asked 'Don't you feel hot in that?' This easy peasy volume hijab style is great to keep you warm but looking cool.

For this style you will need:

  •  1 Scarf which has a big width;
  • At least 1 hijab pin;
  • 1 brooch or no snag hijab pin (optional).
Step 1

Fold the scarf 2 inches from the edge and place the hijab on your head with one side longer than the other

(an underscarf keeps the hijab more secure but you can do this style without it if you feel your going to get too hot)

Frame your face.






Step 2

Take the long side to the opposite side of your face and over your head.













Step 3

Whilst taking the scarf over your head make some folds. (Don't try to make it neat and all the folds the same size. It's supposed to be messy folds)







Step 4

Keep hold of the folds and bring them round your head and back to where you started.









Step 5

Lift up the outermost fold and keep the rest pressed down firmly against your head.









Step 6

Pin down the folds, where you were holding them down to keep them secure.








Step 7

If you want to keep your hijab very secure (e.g. on a windy day) place a brooch or a no snag hijab pin where the loose parts of your scarf come together at the front.










Step 8

Make sure you check the back of your hijab as you may have created too many folds and therefore not get proper back coverage.

If you realise that you don't have enough back coverage undo one or two folds and pull the back of the scarf down.








Step 9

Check how your hijab looks in the mirror. Even though I said the folds are supposed to be messy, you don't want to look like you got dressed in the dark so just fix up the scarf until your satisfied.






Step 10

Put on your cardigan, hoodie, winter coat or whatever you wear to keep you warm and your ready to face the freezing cold winter with a smile.







The style is even great for indoors (if your not wearing an underscarf). You can loosen the scarf a little bit (without exposing your neck) to get some ventilation.

NOTE: Try not to tie your bun/hair up too high as although you want volume and folds, you definitely do not want a camel hump.

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
