Whatishoojab

The most frequently asked questions are ‘what is a hoojab‘ and ‘how does it differ from a hijab’? Both are really good questions. The name came about based off the design. It is a hijab with a hood… thus Hoojab!

thehoojab

I invented the hoojab many years ago when I started wearing hijab. I whipped out my trusty sewing machine and started to design it. The hoojab gives more coverage without the bulk. Enjoy folds without wrestling around with loads and loads of extra material.

Pearl Daisy currently has three different types. The Maxi Hoojab, the Hi-Lo Hoojab, and the Wing Hoojab. Each design varies based on the needs of an individual but the basic elements remain the same: a hood with two long bits attached to provide full coverage.

The Maxi Hoojab

The Maxi Hoojab is based on my original design which had a seam down the center. The Maxi Hoojab has a large hood with no center seam and it provides maximum coverage. There are two pieces of material that come down the side vertically which are the same length.

The Maxi Hoojab is made for the average wearer. If you are very petite this design may have a bit more fabric than you would wish. Also, if you have wider shoulders or a larger chest then the Maxi Hoojab might not have enough coverage. On most people the Maxi Hoojab is perfect. Click here for a tutorial!

The Hi-Lo Hoojab

The Hi-Lo Hoojab is the same as the Maxi Hoojab in all ways except for one: One side is shorter than the other. This Hoojab style is perfect for our petite to average sized sisters who have extra fabric when they are trying to style the Maxi HoojabClick here for a tutorial. 

The Wing Hoojab

The Wing Hoojab is pretty self explanatory. The fabric attached to the hood goes out horizontally. This gives more coverage along the shoulders, chest, and back. The hood is lined with strings attached so you can secure it under your chin or behind your head. These features were added so sisters don’t have to wear an underscarf if they don’t want to. Click here for a tutorial.

There are many sisters that own all three styles to get different looks from them. There are many different styles to try or strike out on your own and experiment. Some wear it as a snood or layer two hoojabs to give a different look.

I hope this helps!

Toodles!

        Asalamu Aleikum,
        I bought each of them and the maxi hoojab is also good for full coverage. I love them all but my favourite is the maxi hoojab. Amena In Shaa Allah you will have more different colours of hoojabs on your website? I bought dark colours but I have a blank (white) face, so it does not suit my face. Keep up the good work you are doing for us MaShaAllah!! May Allah bless you and grand you to paradise!!!

    Salams Amena,
    I bought the maxi hoojab early last year. I must say it was a little challenging for me at first but thanks to your turtorials , I managed. Though I am able to tie it without much hassle, I am not able to do it as impeccable as you do it. InshaAllah , one day , I will be able to do it as well as you .
    I am a owner of all 3 types of hoojabs . And I have bought some hoojab & hijabs as gifts for my galfriends.

    Awaiting more colours of your hoojabs.

    Wassalam,
    Nisah Khan

    Salam. MashaAllah you are such an inspiraton for me. I was in Medinah after hajj when i decided to start wearing hijab this year. I knew about you from earlier but started to watch your hoojab videos. You are so pretty and beautiful mashaAllah and the way you use hojaab is realy amazing. Im so going to be some of the hoojabs, just have to decide which ones.
    I wonder if you can make a video on the following hijab:
    Silver Smooth Sheen Drape Scarf ?

    May Allah swt Always have his blessings upon you and your familiy and give you alot of ajr for inspiring so many sisters out there :)
