Peace and Blessings everyone!
Hope you all had a great Canada Day! For our dear friends to the South, I decided to also make a special Hijab tutorial for Independence Day! Happy Hijab-ing!
To achieve this look you will need a blue under-scarf or head band, a red and white shawls. You can, of course, use this style in different colours, but for this particular look to resemble the American flag, this is the way to go!
STEP 1 – Place your blue under-scarf on your head with a bun or volume bobble placed high at the back
STEP 2 – Place the red scarf on your head with a short end and a longer end
STEP 3 – Knot the short and long end of the red scarf (tip: stuff the left over of the small end into your scarf for a smoother look)
STEP 4 – Take your white scarf and pin one end near the knot on the left side
STEP 5 – Pull the white scarf over your head and pin on the right side, near the knot
STEP 6 – Separate the white scarf and the red scarf so the red scarf is on the left and the white is on the right
STEP 7 – Pull the red scarf over your head from left to right
STEP 8 – Pin the red scarf on the right, behind your ear
STEP 9 – Pull the white scarf under your chin from left to right
STEP 10 – Pin the white scarf behind your left ear
STEP 11 – Pull the white scarf over your head from left to right, pin on the right
You now have a pretty but bangled-less Hijab, let’s fix that!!!
STEP 12 – Take any star-shaped trinket (earring, necklace, keychain, etc.) and pin to the scarf. In my case, I used a key chain from the Translation Games 2010 which I pinned between the first layer of the white scarf and the first layer of the white scarf. 🙂 The original name of this Hijab was Star-Bangled because in my first try, I’d used a bangle bracelet with stars on it, to show you that inspiration can be found anywhere!
