Shayla Variations

This first picture shows a shayla hijab worn with two underscarves - one cotton and one lace. Mix and match colours and patterns for a fun effect!

This one shows a hijab from American Company Primo Moda. It's called a three tone Al-amirah hijab, and a similar effect can be achieved with a shayla. Place the shayla on your head as usual and pin under the chin. Then place a headband on your head over the scarf, making sure it is secure. Then continue to wrap the shayla around your head so that the headband still shows. This is a good way to brighten up a plain scarf.


I like using headbands like these:

People always compliment your hijab when you dress it up with a little headband---I find some beautiful ones in accessory and dollar stores for next to nothing! Girls in Oman also have a pretty way of dressing up a shayla----they pin a necklace over the hijab, or wear it so just a bit peeks through underneath the hijab and have it pinned in the hair. It looks gorgeous for speacial occasions.

Alixiana,

Where exactly do they pin the necklace over the hijab? Sounds very pretty!

Necklace idea sounds v. interesting, will try it out, thanks for the tip.
As a self-confessed hijab-aholic I use bandanas from my existing scarf collection to prevent boredom leading to more scarf-buying :) I often cut abut 6 inches off the width of pashmina hijabs to reduce their bulk - and these cut-off strips make perfect bandanas to mix with other scarves.
