One thing I love doing is trying out new styles. Its something I can’t do everyday, but it breaks up the pattern of wearing the same thing day in and day out. Here is a turban style I created for Eid.
To start out you will need the following:
A hoojab (Click here to see which one suits your body type)
Two slides/bobbie pins
Pins (as many as needed)
Once your underscarf is firmly secured, place the hoojab on your head. Remember the underscarf is your foundation. If it is loose and can move around easily… so will your hoojab.
Use the slides to secure your hoojab to your underscarf. I placed these at my temples.
Here is where you can place some folds. I put in one, but this is optional. Also this would be a great time to add a Daisy Chain, ribbon, or accessory.
This is a point where I am going to differentiate the two sides of the hoojab. In this photo the left is the draped side and the right is the turban side. Take the turban side and swing it around to the other side you will keep it bunched up.
Here you can see how I am keeping the turban side bunched up while bringing it around to the top of my head.
Bring the turban side up and over your head, creating a side part look. Bring the turban side down across your forehead to where it suits your face the best.
You can see here I am keeping the style pretty tight yet comfortable. You don’t need headaches. Hold the turban side tight.
Now bring the draped side under the turban side. Pull the draped side along from the back edge, letting the front edge drape across your chest.
Pull the draped side up and over your head. You may choose at this point to give some folds. Pin as necessary.
Now take the turban side and pull that around the back of your head.
Neaten the look as you see fit.
Pull the turban side around the back and under the draped side.
Now you can pull apart the turban side and swing it over and around to the back of your head and pin into place.
Pin the edge of the turban side to the scarf with a no snag hijab pin. This will ensure you have adequate back coverage.
Now take the draped side and neaten up the front. Here I pinned it to the scarf and my top to keep everything in place. Pin where you feel is necessary.
And you are done! Here is what the back/neck coverage looks like. Let me know how this goes for you!
