Long and Wavy Hijab Style - Video Tutorial

Monday, June 06, 2016




We all have those days we just want a flowy hijab style but we don't want to deal with adjusting it all day or having it cover up a lovely printed top. This is a style I tend to do a lot especially when the hijab is actually longer than usual and the sides tend to look lost lol or when I just want to look put together.

I hope you enjoy this video! I have more coming soon Insha-Allah, it does take some time to get the hang at making videos and editing them lol without letting everything else in life slack. So now I'm going to stop rambling and let you get to watching the video, it's not a long and complicated video, the written steps are down below as well.

Please Note: Showing your neck is totally up to you, if you don't feel comfortable you can get a cap sold at Islamic stores, instagram modest fashion and hijab businesses, ebay or amazon, that covers your neck; so you can wear such styles.


WHAT YOU NEED

Pins - to hold your hijab in place. I always loose my pins, here is a link you can get a whole lot for a really good deal click here
Cap - this will keep your hijab on all day and cover all your hair. Here is the link to the similar one I use, its a tie up one, click here
Hijab - any hijab that matches your outfit will do, chiffon hijabs drape well with this style rather than cotton or a jersey hijab.




STEPS

  1. Once your hair is in a bun and you have your cap place you hijab on your head - make sure both sides are of even length. If you're wearing a hijab of normal length than make sure one side is longer than the other but not too long.
  2. Drape the one side (or longer side) over your head - making sure it goes under the shorter side as you have seen in the video.
  3. Adjust it, if you don't have a cap that covers your neck you can actually drape it tighter so it covers your neck, I did mines loosely.
  4. Now with the other side that is left drape it on the opposite side pinning it onto your bun; as seen in the video. 
  5. Make sure it all looks neat, everything is pinned tightly and also the wavy drapes flow nicely so you don't look messy.

  1. This style looks nice and is easy to make. Works also with a Ninja underscarf. I am always getting a crisis when coming across a tutorial that lasts five minutes. But I am not a fan of chiffon hijabs. Might be my personal attitude, but I feel that I always need millions of pins that it stays at its place. Like the style of your videos. Go on sister! :)

    1. Haha I feel if the hijab tutorial is too long you tend to forget steps that's why I wanted mines short.
      I get that, sometimes it is a bit of a struggle, but nowadays there's different chiffon or materials that are cooler, it's not the only one I go for. You sometimes do need a few pins, but I realised with a ninja cap you can get away with way less. Aww thank you so much! I'm still getting the hang of them lol

  2. Wow! That seems easy but I think I will have to practice it. It takes time for me to try out new hijab styles so mostly I end up going with the regular one.

    1. I like switching it up cause I get bored very quickly with the same old styles. lol practice makes perfect it's nice for like family occasions especially in summer.

  3. Easy and cozy! This could be an ideal way to cover oneself in small family parties. While the hair is covered the beauty of garment wouldn't be hidden! It would look great with ethnic wear. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you so much! I always try to experiment with different styles because sometimes different occasions suit with different styles lol I used the word 'different' way to many times in that sentence.

  4. That looks pretty easy... but yay! Not something I can try with my infant in the hand lol.

    Once upon a time way back in 2009 I used to read hijab blogs very religiously (there were only a few back then!)Use to try too quite a bit. Now I have time only for my regular wrap which too gets 'dismantled ' by my girl lol.

    1. Haha totally understandable, for them its grab grab grab and you end up looking like a mess! With small ones it's best to go super simple and light :) I use to youtube styles lol still do and than I do my own spin off of the style because not every style suits everyone.

  5. I love drapey styles because it's so soft and feminine. When I was younger I tried something like this but it always seemed to slip. Your way is so much easier.

    1. I'm always worried about hijabs slipping cause I'm so busy when I go out I don't have time to check in the mirror if I look okay or not, this style I found looks good and with 3 pins only stays all day!

    1. haha I get that, you can just instead of pinning at the back pin the front so your neck is closed - I do that sometimes lol

    1. Haha I tired to show it as easily as possible, honestly I don't take longer than a minute or 2 to do this.

  8. It looks like a fun and interesting style to try out for a sisterly get-together, not an outdoorsy or big/ mixed event.

    I love my scarfs really tucked in when stepping out otherwise I would worry endlessly about it flying off and exposing my awrah. Guess it takes getting used to, with these fancy wrap arounds.

    Thanks for sharing, I'll let you know how the experiment goes when I try it out insha Allah x
