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

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
