بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمـَنِ الرَّحِيم ,
This is the first of a series of videos made by Pixie and Boxie of how to tie various hijab styles. This was our first vid so please excuse the grainy quality (the others are better) and the fact that we didn't keep the whole vid (it cuts off at the end when I am just explaining the style). The others will be better, we promise:D
K, so this is what I call the Omani style. Which is, an oblong hijab/shayla that is wrapped in a manner that it requires no pins, or when a pashmina is utilized, no al-amira hijab or cap. It is simply wrapped so that the free end is tucked into the side of the face or under the chin, securing the hijab.
This was the first style I learned, and it is great because even if you live in the most hijab-deprived place on this earth, you can still find a pashmina, which can stick to your head without a cap. It is great, because when you are in a rush you can throw it on and jump out the door. It is my late-for-work hijab style. And if you happen to just wrap it a little too short to tuck, you can also pin it with a stick pin.
I know the quality of the video is bad (we made better ones but we have to download them from a different source than the one we made this one on) but give me your feedback on if our advice on the style was clear, inshaAllah.
Without further ado...
