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!
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.
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)
Take the silky hijab around your head and to the other side
Now put on your headband if you have one, although this step is optional.
Now take the lace hijab around your head loosely
And leave it on the other side (you can pin down to secure it at this stage)
Take the silky side you just brought round and pin it under the short side of the lace hijab.
Now drape the lace hijab across your chest & pin to the other side
Ta Da that's it, this is how it should look (=
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.
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.
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!
