This is my first hijab tutorial on how I tie my scarf. I got many sisters coming up and asking me how I tied my headscarf and so I thought to post a video and it took off. This video now has over two million views and rising. It is by far my most popular video and the start of my Amenakin channel. Alhumdulillah.
I used two underscarves. The first to go on was the lace underscarf. Make sure it fully covers your hair line and position it so it flatters your face shape. The put the string underscarf on top of the lace underscarf. This effect will give your hijab style dimension and set it above the typical style.
Next, you need to find the perfect scarf for this style.
The scarf should to be thin and the width shouldn’t be too wide. Fold the scarf lengthwise a third of the way down. The folded over edge will now go on top of the underscarves to give a layered look. There needs to be one long side and one short side. The placement of the scarf needs to be in such a way that when pinned under the chin it will form a straight line.
Once you get the position just right take a no-snag hijab pin and pin it under your chin. Now here comes the fun bit!
TIME FOR FOLDS!
Part way back you will notice a loose area. To produce a fold you pull at that bit until it starts to fold over on itself.
Once you have enough fabric folded over start to straighten it. This will make a smooth neat fold. The folds add volume, texture, and interest. Place each fold in a way that will suit your face shape.
You will notice a flap formed by the fold. Take this flap and use it to cover where your scarf is pinned under your chin.
While pulling the flap make more folds out of the loose fabric. This will add interest to your hijab design.
Take the flap and pull it around your head while ensuring the folds frame your face.
If you see the chance to add more folds go ahead and do so.
Now its time to pin your style into place. Use a straight pin to secure it into place. Weaving the straight pin through each layer of fabric while being careful not to poke yourself. Pin wherever your scarf needs to be secured. It may take one pin or ten. The last thing you want is your hijab style sliding about.
At this point you can let the long scarf bit fall down your back.
This time I decided to secure it so it falls towards the front.
I decided to spruce it up a bit with a flower broach. This style would be great for a dressy event or everyday wear. Hope this helps. Comment below to suggest other styles!
