Please note, almost ALL of these styles FAIL to be Islamic hijab, as they expose either the ear, the neck, and cover little of the bust (which the Qu'ran commands us to cover with our headcovering). Also we should try and not to wear party make-up with our khimars. Yes, Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) wore the make up of her time (kohl) but remember, her jilbab was better than yours. Do you wear hijab that has only one eye and your hands exposed? No. So walk the middle line when it comes to cosmetics. But DO explore these techniques for wrapping and styling scarves to create your own signature look and style and to make use of scarves that are traditionally not wide/ long enough to be of used as hijab.

Hi, you don't need to add this. But could you comment on the Frech president's statement in which "burqas are not welcome in France"? I'd love to hear you. Thanks!
