    Salam Ladies. :D✨ I wanna know what hijab styles you prefer, as I am planning on changing my current hijab-style.
    I have worn this style all my three years in Uni, and I need a change.:confused:

    I personally wear my hijab like this on the daily: 1BE41CDE-D99F-4D9B-8767-938B6FA185D0.jpeg

    During winter times I will wear it with an undercap, and during summer-times I will wear it without (to avoid the famous hijab tan line).

    Its hard to find a suitable hijabstyle for my face. My face is small and the shape is a mixture between oval and round (think Halle Berry). :/ So should I go for round or for oval? I also want this hijab style to be modest and reflect our Islamic dress-code. :nvjpqts: So sisters; any ideas or recommendations?

    Also, which hijab style(s) is your personal go-to? :superman:

    I used to wear a scarf with an undercap, but you need to ditch those things because it’s bad for your hair(line). It makes your hair super flat and can damage your edges. Since I stopped wearing an undercap my curls came back, my hair is a lot thicker now and looks much more healthier.

    I now wear a plain scarf without any pins. Exactly like this, but without any hair showing. I have the same face shape as you and I think this style suits my face the best.

    Wow, I didn’t know about that. I don’t have curly hair tho, and my edges are fine. But I do feel like my hair changed ever since wearing hijab.

    I will stop wearing undercaps now. Thank you so much for this. (I learn something new everyday.):eek::it0tdo8:

    Same! My hair changed too.... Did you use to have (soft) curls before wearing hijab? My curls were almost gone because of it. Now I’m not suffocating my hair anymore and my soft curls came back!

    Wow, you situation is very similar to my one of my sisters. Deff will be telling her about this, mahadsanid.

    No, my hair is straight like this (except darker): FCF05EE9-E8C4-43C4-AF11-DA9ED8DD1226.jpeg

    But ever since wearing hijab it turned more like this: 28A29855-9078-496B-990C-4A1842C383E7.jpeg

    And I have to constantly use repairing shampoo to make it look like how it naturally looks.

    I deff will take your advice to see if my hair changes. ilaahay khair ha ku siyo:it0tdo8:

    Adaa muudan huuno. Ameen love. You’re so sweet allaahuma baarik!! Don’t wash your hair too often with shampoo, just once/twice a week. But if you need to wash it more often (for example because of any gym sessions) then only use conditioner.

    Allaahuma baarik, you have nice hair to work with maa shaa Allah. Your hair is comparable to mine but I got a bit more soft curls. Another thing to give your hair a boost up is to start using henna!! Wallaahi it will make your hair gorg!!

    I wear a jilbab so I don't have advice on hijab styles @SumMo , but the most important thing is you being comfortable the hijab girls wear these days is too high maintenance with the pins and caps.
    I wear a hijab under my jilbab but make it super flat so it it doesn't show on my jilbab lol

    styles to try out

    Sounds like you have the same face-shape as me. I wore mine like this today, and I actually like how it look. (without the undercap, as I took the advice from my sister @RICH :it0tdo8: ) :
    05D2AE97-FD39-407F-88F4-374A6081ABC0.jpeg

    It’s very easy to do. And I pin it at the button. I also wear turbans sometimes.

    Another hijab style that I think would suit you is this (most of my sisters wear this style):
    D677581F-9B33-4CD1-8B65-3213754D7426.jpeg

    I personally don’t like this style on me since I have a small face. But it would look good on you if your face isn’t very small..:rolleyes:

    Masha’Allah sisters you know so much about hijab styles. I am genuinely impressed and inspired! :rolleyes::it0tdo8: Hahahaha, the ‘timo jileec’ hijab style, right up my alley. :ftw9nwa::yloezpe: Except I am not paki/hindi.

    I agree, my turkish friends all wear very complicated (yet beautiful) hijab styleso_O. And whenever we go to the bathroom to fix our hijabs, I see at least 10 different pins being used. This is too much for me, as I want my new style to be simple and easy to maintain. My desi and kurdish friends don’t wear hijabs. :zhqjlmx:Which is why I came on here to ask you guys, and you have all given me such incredible advices. Mahadsanid!

    (Wow. One of my goals in life is to wear a jilbab. May I ask how it is different from wearing a regular hijab? Masha’Allah! :it0tdo8: You keep impressing me sister @Idil-Beydaan :rolleyes: :dzmxmmb:)

    MashaAllah @Idil-Beydaan
    Opposite of me, I like wearing fitted or tight clothing. I’ve never wear jilbab for personal reason.

    I wear my hijab like this

    [​IMG]

    I used to wear a black under piece but it made my baby hair super sensitive and gave me a head ache.

    In the summer I wear it without a pin

    Register to view spoiler content!

    I think this will suit an oval face

    or something like

    I wish I had a face that looked good in a turban :kendrickcry:

    These are all hijab styles that I find suits me and my faceshape. Masha’Allah sis, your recommendations are spot on! :)

    I only wear the turban style when attending special events tho. Like a week ago when I went to a science seminar held by the science faculty at my university. (It was a little awkward tho. Some white guys started hitting on me, since they didn’t know whether or not I was muslim. So I think I will limit the turban wear for weddings and somali/muslim events from now on.:icon lol: lol).

    Why would you say your faceshape doesn’t suit turban? I think most faceshape suits turban, except maybe long faces or very round faces. :confused: Maybe it is the style of turban you wore that didn’t suit you.

    May I ask, how do you wear the second style? how do you pin it down to make it safe?:rolleyes:
