I get asked on a weekly, daily, and hourly basis: “Can you show us how you tied your hijab/hoojab?” I typically wear the same style day in and day out with only slight variations. I will walk you through what I do and how variations on one method can change the whole look. 

hoojabsquares1These styles may all look different, but they are the same method with slight tweaks and added accessories. This Hoojab tutorial is really simple with only a few basic steps.

Things you will need:
A Hoojab. (look at the post here to find the design that suits you)
An Underscarf
Slides/Bobbie Pins (2)
Pins
(as many as needed)

Optional Items:
Daisy Chain
Ribbon
Necklace
Headband
Brooch
Teeka

Note: Choose what ever color/pattern hoojab you want to. This is just a guide.

Lets start! Secure your underscarf. This is the foundation. The looser it is the more your style will slide around.

Position the hoojab on your head and secure behind your ears with slides/bobbie pins. Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 04.09.21 pm

This is where you can add a variation. Either a daisy chain peaking out, a teeka, a headband, or ribbon. Play with it. Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 04.09.49 pm

Take the bottom part of the hoojab and FLIP it onto your head. (reverse side will be facing up)Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 04.10.42 pm

Take the right side and pull it nicely around your face. Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 04.11.35 pm

Secure this part with a pin above your ear. Make sure you are weaving the pin in and out of every layer including your underscarf. Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 04.12.10 pm

Pull the remaining length up and over your head. This is where you can change the look by adding more or less folds. Here I place 2. Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 04.12.46 pm

I let the remaining bit hang off the back. This will give you coverage in the back. Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 04.13.28 pmTake the remaining length around the other side of your face. You can control the coverage along your chest by letting the front hang a bit more or less. Depending on your tastes. Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 04.15.09 pm

Place the end over your head. Now you can neaten up the top bits. Fold and tuck to make it look its best.Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 04.15.32 pm

Pin! Pin! Pin! Pin! Everywhere you feel it might slip or slide… pin it.Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 04.16.00 pm

For this look I tucked my hijab into my necklace and cardigan. Leaving it loose will give a different look. You can also add a daisy chain or brooch at this point. Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 04.16.25 pm

Here is a look at the back coverage.

 More folds = different look. Different accessories = different look. But this is the basis of 90% of my styles.  I hope you find this helpful and let me know how yours comes out. :)

    I purchased the Bella hoojab and for the life of me can’t wear it properly. The wings are way to small and I can’t cover the back of my head and get those layers u have. :( I want to order another one but am not sure if I will have the same turn out.

    Assalaamu alaikum Amena! This was really helpful! You truly are an inspiration to many including me!
    I just had a question, I live in Canada and do not have the hoojab so is there any way I can wrap a regular hijab in this way?

    Sis please tell us the same style and look in a regular hijab since i have variety of hijabs over 100 hijabs and have put a full stop on buying more.really fancy wearing them in the same style as urs..plus putting bobby pins make holes in my scarves can this look not be achieved by tying in under chin since tying behind makes a face look fuller and round.
    Please do a another tutorial for ladies who don’t own a hoojab but want a similar look….
    Please sis….consider making another tutorial…also for those who cant afford to buy hoojabs due to long distance too.

    Asalamalikum,

    I see on your blog you have a hoojab on that has 3 shades in it, (2nd row, last picture) do you sell these sort of hoojabs on your website cause I searched for it and was unable to find it there. Please let me know.

    Hello amena! I am a loyal pearl daisy shopper from the US. I think i own every hoojab. I have an issue with the maxi hoojabs being too narrow and my neck in the back being exposed as a result. I have use a neckstension which I don’t really like. The wing hoojab and viscose hoojab (which are my favorite) give me enough coverage but you never seem to have much variety in those styles. Any suggestions on what my problem might be and how to resolve it? Also I would love if you offered more hoojabs in prints like the black and white stripey one. Thank you!

      Sister,I have that one!I totally agree that there should be more of those ones.Although my main problem with that particular hoojab is that there isn’t enough material,and either I don’t get enough coverage,or my neck gets exposed.

      Still,I love that hoojab,and would like to see more of those!

    Salam aleykoum sister,
    you are such an inspiration to me and I love your youtube videos! Im a revert from Belgium and I am proud to say I finally got the money to order 2 of your hoojabs. Im so excited as you inspired me to start wearing hijab in the first place, something not so evident here among non-muslim family and friends. Can’t wait to get them in the mail!
    I hope in the future I will be able to buy more and hope your website will sell more colors and prints too.
    Thumbs up for all the good work you do, maa shaa Allah, you are an inspiration to us all !

    Salaam! I love the way you do your hijabs and hoojabs. I was wondering if you could share with us the underscarfs you use if there are different ones. I’m always looking for the perfect underscarf and am still on the hunt! Much appreciated!
