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

Hijab Style's To Suit Your Face Shape

So you're trying to follow a hijab tutorial but your hijab just doesn't look like the person doing the tutorial, you get frustrated because you can't get it right. Well to be honest I don't think it's so much you getting it wrong, it may just be that the hijab style being demonstrated looks better on the person doing the tutorial due to the shape of that person's face. Just like when you need to get a haircut, when styling your hijab, you have to consider the shape of your face. I've had many people tell me that hijab doesn't 'suit' them because their face is too round, or their cheeks are too chubby, which is the reason why they don't wear hijab, in my opinion hijab suits everyone, you just have to figure out how to wear it to suit you. Contrary to what many think, hijab wasn't prescribed to make you look 'ugly' it is to make you look modest. In this post I have tried to look at some face shapes and find some hijab style i

10 tips for your online hijab company

Assalaamu alaikum all! I have been having idea's about this post for a while but just didn't how to get my thoughts together so I'm not sure if this will be any good but here it goes anyway! So I don't run an online business of my own, I don't have a marketing degree nor am I an expert in running businesses but I've done my fair share of online shopping and have done reviews for online companies so I will give some tips from a consumer point of view inshaAllah, but please remember these are merely my views and not guaranteed to work Tip 1: Be Unique Do your research and check out other companies out there. At the moment the number of 'online hijab companies' have been growing and there are sooo many companies selling the exact same scarves & accessories claiming to be unique. If you want to be successful think up something different or take a unique angle on the hijab business idea. Brainstorm, pilot your ideas, find out what really
