From the outside, wearing Hijab is easy: you don’t have “bad hair days” and you don’t have to worry about your outfit. Well, as Hijabis we know the truth: wearing a scarf can be really stressful sometimes. Yes, we don’t have bad hair days, but we have “bad hijab days” when nothing seems to go well. Did you ever think that you probably make the same mistakes every time? Watch out for these things next time you put your scarf on:
- You’re not wearing a Underscarf. An Underscarf can help you change the shape of your face, and make sure that your scarf is not falling off. Even if you use a dozen of pins, your Hijab will still slip on your hair, especially if your hair is smooth and silky.
- You choose “skinny” (or thin) scarves. In order to arrange your Hijab in a good way, you need to have plenty of material to work with. If your scarf is very short or very narrow, you will not be able to properly cover your hair and create the style that you want. It’s always better to use wide scarves and flowy materials.
- You don’t iron your scarf. You only iron your Hijab when the material is wrinkled? Big mistake! When you iron it the material will become softer, and it will be easier to arrange it. Besides, the colors will look fresher and you can enjoy your look all day long.
- You add too much volume. Many Hijabis use a scrunchie to volumize their scarf, but some of them go overboard with this. Put your hair in a ponytail and wrap a piece of material around it; it will be more than enough.
- You wear more than one scarf. Yes, many girls are doing this. Wearing more than one scarf at once is not only uncomfortable (it’s really hot outside!) but it does not look good either. Try to wear a simple Underscarf, and one single piece on top of it. Believe me, it will look much better!
