Hijab Styling | Silky Lace Occasion


Assalaamu alaikum and Eid Mubarak to all my lovely readers from around the world, may Allah bless each and everyone of you and may you all have an amazing Eid! iA

A sister e-mailed me recently asking me how I did a hijab style on the hijab fashion review I did so in this post I have tried to re-create the look. I have used 2 scarves, a silky scarf in a platinum colour and a grey vintage corture/unforgettable lace hijab, I have also used a 3 band elasticated pearl headband. All items used in this tutorial are from hijab fashion shop  however, I'm not sure if all the items are in stock. So here it is!

Step 1


Place the silky hijab on your head one side long one side short and then place the lace hijab on your head again one side long one side short with the lace side not cotton side on your head.

Step 2


Make sure both hijabs are at the same legth on the shorter side eventhough they will be at different lengths on the longer side (the silky hijab is longer than the lace one)

Step 3


Take the silky hijab around your head and to the other side

Step 4


Now put on your headband if you have one, although this step is optional.

Step 5


Now take the lace hijab around your head loosely

Step 6


And leave it on the other side (you can pin down to secure it at this stage)

Step 7


Take the silky side you just brought round and pin it under the short side of the lace hijab.

Step 8


Now drape the lace hijab across your chest & pin to the other side

Ta Da that's it, this is how it should look (=



Tip


If you have some hijab hanging over your shoulder with tassle's that doesn't look neat, just fold in the tassle until the hijab is resting on your shoulder & pin down. This is how it would look...



Here is another quick tutorial on how you can use two hijabs (I'll be using the same 2) but you can use any two to create a look like in the first picture.

Step 1


Place the 1st hijab on your head one side long one side short, and place the corner of your second hijab  on your head on the same side as the short side of the 1st hijab. Then take the first hijab round your face over your head and on the other side.

Step 2


Now take the long side of the second hijab around your head and to the other side.

You can now leave it hanging like that or even pin it down neatly, but it's as simple as that! And there you have it the finished look (=


You can add an accessory to jazz up the look a little bit more...


One tip I would give when creating a 'two' hijab style is use hijabs that are different yet complimenting, i.e. plain & lace, plain & patterened, silky & gorgette, lace & pashmina in complimentary colours. Don't use 2 pashmina's cos it'll look really bulky and if your anything like me you probs will feel like you can't hear anything or like you can't breathe lol.

I hope this was helpful, do let me know what you think of it and how you get on if you try it ;o)

Eid Mubarak again to you and your families.

eat. love. pray!

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
