Yemeni Hijab Style

The next country I've explored the hijab style of is Yemen. Bordering both Saudi and Oman, I guessed the style would be a cross between the two countries and it kind of is:

Brightly coloured hijab, so pretty :D

Like in Saudi, a lot of women in Yemen wear the niqab, I think this version is nicer than black though:
Yemenis seem to have a hat fetish:

I love this next one, the hijab and hat combo is so graceful, especially with that bright pink scarf:

I love this pic :] I don't really know why tbh, I think it's the jeans

Cute hijabs, I love the purple one but I think I would set my chin free a bit more if I was wearing it lol:

Yemeni soldiers training to counter terrorists, you go girlies!

Check out their hijabified army outfits, so much nicer than the butch ones they make in other countries lol:

Jewish Yemenis, in some colourful outfits and half hijabified, loving the beads:

I'm so in love with this black Yemeni hena, have to get it done!

More around the world hijab style coming soon, Isha'Allah!

I'm yemeni and tihs doesnt reflect mainstream culture at all. Where are the pics of mainstream culture and hijab there? None of these are actual yemeni rooted styles
