Hijab Salons

Recently, hijab styles have boomed. I remember not too long ago there were probably like... 5 common ways to tie your hijab. Now there are several books available on how to tie it. Not only that, but there are entire websites and YouTube video tutorials dedicated to this as well! There are now dozens of unique ways being shared, each one having a special touch.


Now while many of them are nice, we have to be sure to avoid the styles which leave the chest uncovered and the ears and neck exposed. While those are perfectly fine to wear during sisters events/parties, they aren't okay to wear outside of the home. If I wear a really fancy hijab (or if I were to use one of these styles) I'd usually just pull a huge khimar over it until I get to wherever I'm going and are sure it's a non-mahram free environment.

Anyway, I never thought just tying your hijab could turn into an artform. There are even hijab manufacturers now who make hijabs already fashioned and all you do is pull it on over your hair. Before, there just used to be squared hijabs. Now there are pashminas, al-amiras, kuwaiti hijabs, and a whole array of designs. Now a lot of us can even walk into the mall and find shawls to purchase and wear as hijabs alhamdulillah.

I'm telling you, pretty soon you'll see HIJAB SALONS everywhere. A sister can go and have a hijab stylist come and wrap their hijab for them if they have a wedding or aqeeqah to go to, if they aren't practiced in tying a hijab in a fancy manner. Heck, you'll probably be able to go there and rent a hijab with a perfectly matching hijab pin! You can wear it out and then return it to the salon where it will be thoroughly washed and waiting for the next customer.

Sisters will sit in the back, waiting... flipping through magazines with hijab styles, doggy earing pages that they may consider for their look. They'll bring their outfit in a separate bag to have the hijab, underscarf, and pin properly matched with it. The hijab stylist will examine their facial structure and complexion and then go to work, forming huge ruffles, buns, and arrangements with the hijab, tying and draping it in every way possible. Maybe they'll need special hijab spray to make it stay in place and not flop! Perhaps there will also be a beautician as well to help with makeup and they'll offer a niqaab for you to wear out since you'd be dolled up.

I can see it now... hmm...

By the way, if ANY of you jack my idea and open up a hijab salon I WILL come after you for 50% ... at least! Hmph!

INGENIUS!

I can almost see it now, and I'd be one of their best customers hehe :D

I'm liking the vast array of hijab styles, it adds a spice to everyday life!

Sonia said...

Lazeena,

Yep, hijabs are as diverse are people's personalities. I like them all except the ones that are so tight and see through that you wander why they are wearing the hijab in the first place.

BTW...You've been tagged to share 25 random things about yourself...☺

Mehvish said...

omg ur so right, thers a huge posibility of this happening. i never even thought you could tie hijab so many ways i guess people experiement a lot and turn this into business. i see lots of videos in youtube too

Rere said...

you're right. maybe there will be a hijab salon someday. lol. i like your idea.

Umm Salihah said...

Assalam-alaikam,
I htink there are something similar in Egypt, which are not hijab salons, but hijab shops, where the lady in the boutique will help you get a funky hijab style - maybe I am wrong, but I thought I saw something like this on one of the hijab blogs.

The only thing that comes to my mind is, how do they get them off to make wudhu and then put them on again? Sounds very tricky.

Anonymous said...

that is so funny, i wouldnt doubt it. well yes of course in hijab shops you can take your clothes and they help you match with what color and design, but wrapping it is a different story. hijab spray? lmao, but true sometimes it shifts! this is too funy, i love your page!

Candice said...

It's all a bit much, isn't it? lol

Mina said...

Salaams Sis:

Sounds like a new career in your future :)

Lazeena Umm Yusuf said...

haha. I'm more of a simple gal, it hurts my eyes seeing hijabs wrapped so intricately, I would never be able to do it. I have enough hastle pulling on my khimar or wrapping a pashmina around my head. I'll sit back and wait for someone else to take this one

Jamilah said...

I think some of the styles go to far and it starts to lose the purpose of being modest... its like saying look I'm covered while wearing a blinking neon sign

Lexicala Complicata said...

wow!
mashAllah..this is really interesting.

Nafeesa said...

As wr wb

You are too funny

Mrs. H said...

I just came across your blog. I am all for this idea being I am in desperate need of a new style. I also watch the youtube tutorials as well but nothing new has caught my eye. It's a cute idea!

*~Ange~* said...

yah, in egypt they have girls FAMOUS for hijab styling. they are well known household names!

i think it will catch on soon around the world in muslim communities

Layan said...

Asalamualikum,
Not to rain on your parade but I think someone beat you to the punch. But work it! I thinks its a great idea! I know I read some time ago that there are salons in Turkey that cater to women on their wedding days and special occasions. They specialize in hijab styling. I found this link on http://hijabstyle.blogspot.com Its for Jailan Atef and funny enough two of the pictures you have are from her gallery anyway here is her page: http://www.jailanatef.com/index.html

Also I know some african(nigerian) salons cater to women who don't know how to wear gele correctly and they style, pin and mold the gele's into a nothing less than fabric crowns.

Hayati said...

Jailan just customizes hijabs to go with her gown patterns, she does not have an actual salon yeah.

Jovita Caballero said...

i think thats a beautiful idea! haha, whether your jking or not its a fabulous idea!!
mashallah
and the way you write reminds of the author shopaholic!
if you havent read it already, you must, your writing is so cute!!

Heba said...

In north Lebanon there is a MAN that designs wedding hijabs, named Khaled Taha, he has what he calls a studio where you bring your wedding dress ahead of time and he does exactly what you said studies your face and dress design and comes up with a hijab for you. He has his mother who is the typical little old arab lady put it on for you and you do a test run to see what works best, and then on the day of your wedding after you do your makeup you go back to his mommy and she wraps/ pins it for you.

Two of my sister in laws have done this, it does sound a little crazy to me, but it comes out so beautiful.

Madiha M.K said...

I'm sorry to burst your bubble but...

I'm an aspiring hijab stylist (got a pretty good youtube channel , i guess, youtube.com/user/unr3achable1tch ) and I live in Egypt..

THERE ARE HIJAB SALONS ALREADY!! LOL

At hair dressers, you can have your scarf styled for you if you'd like!! :D

But 90% of that is for special occasions like weddings n such. But I guess they could do you something nice for a nickel or two.

Jalsa said...

Madiha thank you for ruining our fun. To all you party poopers we have nothing like this in the states okay ! So it is really fun to have fun with and think about. Sheesh you people! lol jokes
