I knoooow, it has been such a looooong time since I posted. The good news is I finished my first ever quarter at university a couple of days ago with top grades – yaaay. Insha’a Allah I will continue like that Unfortunately I don’t have photoshop here on my new laptop… Arrgh.. I got stuff that I wanna post but it looks so messy without arranging it and fitting it to my blog. Well…
Here is a cute but very non-covering way to wrap. The style is girly and in fact easy to do to but you¬† better cover your neck/chest.
Yasmine over at Sweep the sunshinedemonstrates how to wrap a gravity defying hijab. It’s not as crazy as it sounds… It is a “Spanish hijab” bun style made with a pashmina or fake pashmina shawl that really gives volume. Do remember to wear a turtleneck top or sweater..
You know, when I was a hijab newbie, I never understood how an¬†under scarf could help you big time with making the hijab stay on place… I made something like this to work (my colleague Vania’s favorite, she always complimented on how fly it looked),¬†wrapping it really really really hard so that I didn’t even needed to pin it… And I asked myself why the headaches kept coming???!!
For all¬†of you that want to wear¬†the spanish hijab, but don’t know how to do it; sister Madiha has made a video hijab tutorial for “semi formal spanish hijab wrap” as she calls it herself. There is a million ways to wrap spanish hijab and this is one of them, so get inspired. PS! Watch out for loud music in the beginning, if you don’t like that…
Although some stuff in this video is silly (like the smoking hijabi, and the “only for fashion” hijabi), I think the meaning¬†behind this video is to probably show the diversity of hijabis with a humorous sting, and also to teach people a little something about hijab.
And in case you were wondering, here are “tudung” Wardina & “tudung” Waheeda;
