Hijab Stylist: Ayse Kuafor

When I travelled to Turkey a couple of years ago, I had the opportunity to watch what was probably a wedding/engagement procession. The bride was wearing a beautiful red and white satin gown, and her hijab was styled much like the ones in these photos. At the time I wondered how she could have done it herself, but of course, it's more probable she visited a salon like Ayse Kuafor which specialises in hijab wraps for special occasions. The style in the yellow hijab though, looks pretty simple and could easily be worn on a day-to-day basis. Below are just a few examples of Ayse's work, visit the website for lots more:

Salams,
Thank you Jana for showing these gorgeous hijabs!!...Masha Allah, I really love the bottom 2 especially the one on the bottom left. Anyone have a link to instructions on how to wrap this one? Also, this will be my first summmer wearing hijab. it's very humid warm wear i live in the summer and am wondering how other Muslimahs deal with 'hot head' syndrome...:-)
Thank you and salamulaykum

Wow they are gorgeous! When I go into wearing hijab "full time" I'm definitely going to go for full on things like this, bright colours etc. I love your blog, it's much nicer than these "wear only black" blogs I see. Thank you for posting!

me too Jana, i love the yellow and purple with the flower on the side (last pic). I would probably wear them with a very simple yet elegant dress to compliment the hijab!

Very pretty! Actually styles I'd like to wear, unlike so many of the unique styles out there. The first one is a bit too poofy and much for me, and the wedding one seems a bit conish, but the others are nice and I like the last one most.

all turkish hijab styles seem bit conish...do like some of these designs tho, n its good to encourage this than to hv brides go without hijab on their wedding day!

in the summer i generally have thinner scarves, n thin cotton undercap...but when its REALLY hot, i tend to usea mixture of water n oil on my hair to cool my head...somtimes i do diff hijab styles dependin on heat, cos my usual one is wrapped round a few times:)

*staring*

Talk about creativity, and finding a niche product.
'Hijab-hairdresser'...or is it 'Hijabdresser'?

I saw these designs in my Sister-in-law's wedding. The women told me that the kuafor made tiny stitches in place to create the floral effects. They were literally hurricane-proof lolz.
And I'm sure there aren't any instructions; trade secrets, you know?
