Well-winged hijab

Peace and blessings,

I’ve been loving the “wings” lately (hijabs with “flaps” on each side) and I figured I should show you a simple way to get a well-winged hijab regardless of the shawl you use. What I’m loving of this particular way of wearing the wings is that pining the scarf in all the right places will allow complete coverage of the neck, forehead and chest while using only one shawl. You might need an underscarf to pin lighter fabrics properly but with heavier fabrics, you can omit the underscarf completely if you wish!

Other “winged” style: Fancy Flowy Flirty

hijab tutorial 29-001STEP 1 – Take one width edge of the shawl and place in on your forehead
STEP 2 – Bring both corners behind your head, secure with pin(s)
STEP 3 – Wrap the length of the shawl across your chest and center the other width edge on your head
(TIP: the next few steps will be easier if you temporarily secure the upper layer in place with a pin )
STEP 4 – Take the fabric near your neck and hold it under your right ear
STEP 5 – Place the right side of the upper layer of the shawl over the fabric near your ear and secure upper layer, neck layer and lower layer together with pin
(TIP: make sure the corner of the upper layer reaches far enough out –I usually try and make it reach my chin)
STEP 6 – Line your chin with the fabric near your neck and hold it behind your left ear
STEP 7 – Place the left side of the upper layer of the shawl over the fabric near your ear and secure upper layer, neck layer and lower layer together with pin
STEP 8 – Pin the left corner up and behind your left ear
STEP 9 – Pin the right corner up and behind your right ear
