Hijab Styles to Suit Round Faces



Since my 'hijab styles to suit your face shape' post I have had TONNES of e-mails from sisters telling me they have a round face and nothing suits them. Since I have been replying to each message individually telling people pretty much the same thing I thought I will do an update post for sisters who think they have a round face or chubby cheeks.

So one of the main mistakes I see people with this face shape making is tying their hijab really tight around their face and trying to tuck their cheeks in, as I said in the other post this only makes your cheeks stand out more. Try to go for loose drapey styles which skim the sides of your face rather than tight styles that bring your cheeks forward. See some examples of the style I'm talking about below...










Another thing you may want to try is to wear your underscarf/headband higher up on your forehead just below your hairline rather than have it going straight across your forehead. Avoid styles which go behind the angle of your jaw or pinned tightly under your chin, these also make your cheeks come forward. 




If you want to cover more of your face you can do, just make sure your hijab is not tight.


So that's the only advice I can give you really. Please remember these are just my opinions, find something that suits you and that you are comfortable with, people will always say things to discourage you but inshaAllah have faith in Allah and remember why you want to wear hijab.

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
