Let’s face it – wearing a hijab isn’t as easy as it looks. Sure, we can wrap it around our head in any number of ways, but to wear it in a way where you feel secure, modest, covered, beautiful and confident takes practice and some know-how. Most of us who wear hijab went through a learning curve. Whether you are a long-time hijabi or just starting out (ESPECIALLY if you are new to hijab), trying to figure out how to wear hijab can be challenging, especially with the various fabrics, textures and shapes out there.
