Happy Friday all!
Today I’m releasing my FIRST hijab tutorial! This is one of the main requests I’ve received from so many of you over the years (and in part one of the main things that propelled me to start a Youtube channel for that matter – so thank you!)
I know everyone ties their hijab differently, but I think what stands out about the way I tie mine is the fact that I do not have a lot of fabric going on around the neck and chest area so I’m able to achieve a very crisp and polished look. My philosophy is that the hijab is an accessory to the outfit and should be subdued so that it doesn’t take away from the rest of the look. I know some girls like to have the hijab hang over their chest to give them more coverage and that works nicely as well.
The way I achieve a polished hijab look has to do with two crucial components, the way I tie it AND the size of the hijab. Whenever I find a scarf that I love I usually have to take it to the tailor and get it cut down to the dimensions that I like, which are 72 inches long and 21 inches wide. I haven’t had to do that for a while now because of the hijab brand called KINZA, which literally changed my hijab game. I used to have scarves from random places and never really committed to just one brand, but since being introduced to KINZA I’d say about 95% of my collection is from them. Yes, I have a bit of an obsession – its true.
If you’ve been following my blog then it should be no surprise how much I love that brand. The size is perfect, the fabric is so rich yet lightweight, and the prints are very unique. The scarf I am wearing in the tutorial is one of my favorites (color SMOKE) and available on their site for purchase.
Also, here's something to keep in mind. The KINZA scarves do need to be pinned at the neck to keep you from having to fix it all the time. I use a special coil-less pin that doesn't have the spiral so it won't get stuck in your scarf! The size I use is 3/4", click here to purchase them. They will make your life so much easier!
In terms of the under-cap that I wear, I get mine from an online shop call Damaseen. I usually get the one that ties from the back. It really depends on how long your hair is and how sheer the scarf is so take a look at their under cap selection.
