Nothing thrills me more than when I am stopped by someone and asked ‘how have you tied your Hijab’, I have all the time in the world for a demonstration, even if it involves me finding the nearest toilet to do a ‘show & tell’
I must admit back at University I always styled my Hijab out in black and tied in the same fashion, this was one of my biggest regrets ever. I guess coming from a ‘non Muslim’ town, I always just wanted to blend in and it took me longer than I hoped to embrace the scarf and to begin experimenting.
One other thing I am a strong believer of is that it takes a VERY confident girl to wear a Hijab. It is actually a life changing transition and I will not lie, it can be hard.
Over the past couple of years, my Hijab drawer has literally started to overflow; my favourite hot spots must be H&M and Primark. Primark especially have impressed me so much with their range this summer. For only £4 too, the colours and designs have been a delight (the one I’ am wearing now is still in store). I often also stop at any market stalls if they have scarves; I am strong believer that you can’t have too many Hijabs.
I think it’s the scarf that actually pulls an outfit together :)
