Hijab Styling Tutorials: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

The net absolutely is brimming to the rim with hijab styling ideas but sorting the wheat from the chaff can be quite a daunting prospect so usually I just give up and stick to a couple of my everyday styles. In a moment of madness, however (most probably brought on by the fact that I have inhumane amounts of university work to do..) I thought I'd take on the world of hijab tutorials head on - with google. Here's a sample of what I dug up, with comments of course..

The 'it looks simple enough but in hijab reality, with that material, it would actually require nine pins to stay in place' look:

The 'perfect for work' look that makes us seriously consider a broach or two..

The old faithfuls, ahh how we love you:

The evolution of the old faithfuls: they have got their perks of course, but are never quite as trusty (or as simple) as the originals:

The 'I went to bed in my (bargin bucket) headscarf and one earring' look.

The elegant drape look:

The old 'I have a headache' look

And last but by all means not least, the 'Igal and Shemagh looks better on women anyway..' look

So which is your favorite? (I know you probably won't be able to answer that as the choice of stylish looks out there is just so extensive..!)

i like all of them, but the bargain bucket and the elegant drape are the best.

yes I agree, they are all beautiful yet I have been disappointed with hijab websites - they always use fair-skinned models and its really hard to see how a particular headscarf would look on a olive/darker skin tone person.

hi, i can read Malay, so i was wondering if you have a picture of these articles in better resolution? hehe so i can learn the styles.

I can't really figure out how to do it just by looking at the pictures step by step. =/
