You can wear a hijab in different ways. The most common is the triangle method, which ensures that everything stays in place for a whole day. If you want to use an adult, fashionable version, you should use the pashmina method to make the hijab look more elegant. If you want to get the hijab on as quickly as possible, you should wear an Al-Amira (which you can put on over your head) or a hijab that consists of two parts. You don't need layers or pins for this.
Method 1 of 3: The triangle method
Step 1. Choose a square scarf
This method works best with a square, light scarf, no matter what material it is made of. In the summer it is best to opt for cotton or satin, and in the winter for the warmer scarves such as those made of wool. You also need two pins.
Step 2. Now fold the top right corner to the bottom left corner
The folded scarf is now a triangle.
Step 3. Place the scarf over your head
The wide part of the triangle should go over the top of your forehead, with the two corners over your shoulders. The third corner of the triangle goes over the back of your head.
Step 4. Now bring two corners of the scarf together under your chin
Open your mouth in an O-shape as you do this so your scarf doesn't get too tight. Now secure the scarf with a pin under your chin.
Step 5. Now cross the corners of the scarf over your neck
Left to right and right to left. Let the tail hang over your shoulders.
Step 6. Secure the tails of your scarf behind your head
Lift the back of your scarf and secure the two ends with a pin, letting the back corner of your scarf hang over the pin.
Step 7. Adjust your scarf, if necessary
Make sure your scarf is tight and tight.
Method 2 of 3: Pinned to the side
Step 1. This method works best with a rectangular scarf
You need one pin for this.
Step 2. Put your scarf over your head
The tip of your scarf should hang over your forehead, while the sides hang over your shoulders. Adjust your scarf so that one side hangs twice as low as the other.
Step 3. Wrap the long side of the scarf around your chin and over your head
Place one corner of the scarf over your other shoulder.
Step 4. Use a pin to secure the scarf to the side of your head
Use a pin to keep the scarf in place.
Step 5. You can always adjust the scarf if your scarf no longer fits properly
The scarf should look like one long loop around your head and under your chin. Make sure your scarf is securely fastened and cannot fall off your head.
Method 3 of 3: A single or a double Al-Amira
Step 1. Choose a single or double Al-Amira scarf
The single version has a hole in the center that you have to put your head through. The double version also has a second scarf for extra coverage of your head.
Step 2. Place the second scarf on your head, pretending it is a headband
The scarf should go over your forehead to cover, if you have a single version you can skip this step.
Step 3. Now put your head through the opening of the scarf
Make sure to do this so that your head is surrounded by the scarf, with the flaps over your shoulders, chest, and back.
Step 4. You can still move these flaps if they are not comfortable
Make sure everything is tight so it can't come loose later.
