					How to Wear Hijab

Hijab Style 1:




                 Step 1. Place a pashmina over your head with one side longer than the other,
                 as seen in the picture.




                 Step 2. Fold back the scarf behind the nape/neck so the two edges meet
                 together.




                 Step 3. Using a safety pin, pin the two edges together behind the back of the
                 neck.
Step 4. This picture shows the front view of step 3. When pinning behind the
neck, make sure the front of the scarf has a smooth finish and is a comfortable
fit.




Step 5. Take the longer end of the scarf and start to bring round under the chin.




Step 6. Continue to take the scarf up round to the other side. You may have to
adjust the rest of the scarf around the shoulders a little so that it wraps round
smoothly.




Step 7. Here is a side view of step 6. This will help understand step 7 more
clearly.
Step 8. This picture shows how the scarf has been brought round to the
opposite side.




Step 9. Adjust the scarf so it falls evenly around your shoulders, you may also
have to finger comb the the scarf at the forehead so no creases show on the
front part of the scarf. Once everything is to your satisfaction, pin the top scarf
to the part around the neck.




Step 10. Front view of step 9. Once the scarf has been pinned, you can adjust
the scarf a little more until you're happy with the way it looks.
Hijab Style 2:

This second style starts off the same as style 1, the difference being that this style offers a smoother
continous finish at the front with the end of the hijab pinned at the back of the head.




                          Step 1. Place a pashmina over your head with one side longer than the other,
                          as seen in the picture.




                          Step 2. Fold back the scarf behind the nape/neck so the two edges meet
                          together.




                          Step 3. Using a safety pin, pin the two edges together behind the back of the
                          neck.
Step 4. This picture shows the front view of step 3. When pinning behind the
neck, make sure the front of the scarf has a smooth finish and is a comfortable
fit.




Step 5. Take about 20cm from the longer end of the scarf and start to bring it
up towards the top of the head, near the center.




Step 6. Using a pin, secure the edge of the hijab to the top of the head. Make
sure it is pinned in the center of the head or slightly over to the other side. This
ensures the ends can't be seen when style is completed.
Another point to note, for slippery fabrics such as chiffon and georgette, pin well
over past the centre and over to the other side of the head, this will ensure the
hijab stays firmly in place as arranged.




Step 7. Pick up the hjab from where it was pinned in step 6. Start to bring the
scarf back down towards the chin.
Step 8. Continue to bring the scarf round under the chin.....




Step 9. .....and to the other side.




Step 10. Continue to bring up and over the head toward where the scarf was
pinned in step 6.




Step 11. Pin the edge of the scarf just over where it was pinned in step 6.
Alternatively, the pin can be taken out and both edges pinned together. Ensure
the bottom edge stays under and is covered by the top layer.
Step 12. This shows how the hijab looks at the back.




Step 13. Take the scarf along the fold on the left hand side and pull it forward to
the right side.
This is why it was mentioned in step 6 that slippery scarves should be pinned
past the center otherwise this fold will keep falling back.




Step 14. Final step, now take the right side of the hijab and bring it up and over
the bottom layer.




Step 15. You can adjust the scarf at the front and back a little more until you're
happy with the way it looks.
Hijab Style 3:

This hijab style is the same as can be seen on the model on the website. A very clean and smart style
which we are sure will be very popular. And to all those customers who emailed us for this style, you're
more than welcome :)




                          Step 1. Place a pashmina over your head with one side longer than the other,
                          as seen in the picture.




                          Step 2. Fold back the scarf behind the nape/neck so the two edges meet
                          together.




                          Step 3. Using a safety pin, pin the two edges together behind the back of the
                          neck.
Step 4. This picture shows the front view of step 3. When pinning behind the
neck, make sure the front of the scarf has a smooth finish and is a snug but
comfortable fit.




Step 5. Take the longer end of the scarf from behind the neck and start to bring
it up towards the top of the head, making sure the edge remains near the front
part of the head. Adjust the rest of the scarf as neccessary to help if needed.




Step 6. Continue to bring the scarf around, making sure to iron out any creases
with your finger.




Step 7. Continue to bring round under the chin. You will have to adjust the rest
of the scarf as you complete these steps so that the finish remains crease free.
Step 8. Continue to bring the scarf round under the chin.....




Step 9. .....and to the other side.




Step 10. Pin into place on the side of the head or under the ear, your
preference entirely.




Step 11. Or if you prefer a completely clean look at the front as in this picture,
you can also pin toward the back of the head. Please see step 12.
                          Step 12. If you prefer the look in step 11, this is roughly where you can pin the
                          hijab into place. Once the hijab has been pinned, adjust the scarf at the front
                          and back until you're happy.




Mona Hijab:

The mona hijab is a relatively new design which is currently only available online. Hijab Store Online is
the first website to be offering this new design. It is very easy to wear and also perfect for new muslimahs
who have just been introduced to the hijab.




The mona hijab is a one piece hijab consisting of a stretch underscarf with a shayla/scarf attached. When
the underscarf is put on, the attached shayla falls naturally into place and just needs to be wrapped once
round the head and fastened with a hijab pin or tucked under the chin. The fabric of the underscarf is non-
slip and will stay in place.




                          Step 1. Place the mona hijab onto the head, if layering with a lace band, add
                          that on first as shown in the picture. For easy fitting, find the peak/front part of
                          the hijab and slide the underscarf over the head, ensuring that the 'peak' stays
                          at the front. Similar to how you would wear a one piece al-amira hijab (without
                          the attached shayla).
                          Step 2. With a mona hijab, one side of the shayla is always longer than the
                          other. Take the longer part of the attached shayla and bring it round under the
                          chin....




                          Step 3. .....over the head,




                          Step 4. ..and to the opposite side. Pin into place. There you have it, the perfect
                          hijab look with the minimum of fuss!




Velcro Hijab:

The 'Velcro Hijab' is a new design, exclusive to Hijab Store Online. These have elastic velcro atttached to
the front of the hijab which is then connected at the back of the neck for a secure, neat finish.
Step 1. First image shows how the elastic velcro is connected to the ends of
the front part of the hijab.




Step 2. The velcro ends are taken to the back of the nape and fastened at the
back of the neck, giving a clean secure fit.




Step 3. For a simple finish, one end of the hijab can be placed over one
shoulder.




Step 4. Following on from the last image, the other end is placed over the other
shoulder. This can also be pinned at the back of the head for a more secure
finish with a hijab pin.
