Welcome back to another edition of Hijab Fridays! We're excited to share a look with you that is flowing and beautiful by accentuating the side of your face. To achieve this we're going to show you a draping technique that ensures you get a lovely, ultra feminine style with ample coverage to wear all day long!
You don't need any brooch for this, just 6 pins and you're good to go! You'll of course need our Zehna Chiffon Rectangle Shawl-- it easily allows you to achieve the perfect drapes due to it's soft, lightweight material. Other shawls might be too stiff and you'll end up with bulky look-- not cute! Alright, let's get started !
Step 1: Tie them together on the back of your neck
Using the shorter side, take the shawl at both ends in front of you. Bring back the two sides and gently tie them together on the back of your neck
Step 2: Bring up one side
Now that the shawl is hanging down in front of you, bring up one side and evenly drape it up and over your head. Here is where you carefully secure it with pins, on the lower part of each cheek.
Step 3: Pinning further down the sides of your cheeks.
If you'd prefer to not show much of your inner, no problem. Just wear the matching colour as your shawl, and they'll just blend together. Or, you can hide it more by simply pinning further down the sides of your cheeks.
Step 4: Pin it in place on your shoulder
Now, gently move the fabric on your shoulder by pinching it closer to you, to create nice even drapes. When you're happy with how the flowing drapes look, pin it in place on your shoulder. Since there are a lot of folds and drapes with this look, don't forget to tidy up the edges when necessary at any point during these steps!
Step 5 : Take the back corner
Now, let's move to the other side, where you can take the back corner of the hanging side and bring it up to pin on the top of your head.
Step 6 : Do the same thing with the remaining front corner
Do the same thing with the remaining front corner, and pin it up onto the top of your head.
Step 7 : Adjust the fabric until you get a nice curve
Now that you've got somewhat of a hanging piece, adjust the fabric until you get a nice curve on the side. Secure it in place on your shoulder with another pin once you're happy with how it looks.
Final look : You can switch the drape to the opposite side
Remember if you prefer to show another side of your face, you can just switch the drape to the opposite side at the beginning. Speaking of the side of your face, this look elegantly shows off your side profile and adds dimension to really highlight the curves and lines of your face. Perfect, and you're done!
