4 Tips to Carry a Hijab Perfectly
1. Dry Your Hair and Tie It
The biggest mistake many first-time hijabi women make is they tie their wet or semi-wet hair under the hijab. This might not seem a problem at first, but as the day passes and sweat builds up, the dampness is going to cause severe itching. This can leave you very irritable. So, the first thing is to be comfortable under the hijab. Always wear the hijab on fully dry hair.
I would suggest not wearing the hijab with open hair unless your hair is very short. Always secure it in a low bun, ponytail or with hair clips.
2. Wear an Under cap
Under caps make wearing the hijab very easy. Moreover, the caps can also further secure your hair for a smoother fit. If you search online, there are all types of under caps available for hijabs from simple ones to silk under cap hijab. They also work to keep the hijab in place. Some materials like jersey hijab and stretchy hijabs might slip off the hair if worn directly.
3. Use Pins
When I started the hijab, securing it with pins used to be my worst nightmare. Being the clumsy teenager I was, I would always poke myself with a pin. Luckily, magnetic hijab pins have been introduced which are safe. The normal safety pins or hijab pins might even leave holes in your luxury hijabs and premium chiffon hijabs. What a waste, right?
4. Be Confident About Perfect Hijab
You could be wearing the perfect hijab perfectly and still not be comfortable if you are not confident. Hijabi women need to understand that there might be days the hijab opens or you lose a pin. The key is not to panic. You can always wrap up the hijab and walk tall! The trick is to be confident. If you are happy with what you are wearing, you will carry it flawlessly and effortlessly.
The best thing about the hijab is that there is so much choice to experiment with. On Hijab Square, the best hijab store online, there are so many hijabs to choose from. You can go with some of the boldest colors like mulberry, chocolate brown hijab, plum etc. On the other hand, you have lighter tones to choose from like powder pink, wisteria and storm gray.
There is something for everyone. So, if you are a new hijabi, do check out the website and choose a hijab for every occasion.
