‘It’s so easy to style and really suits my face’- Naya
Naya a 17 years old Lebanese-Muslim Fashionista from Australia and an aspiring interior architect has been alternating with square hijabs and says it’s been a real go to for her now. She goes on…‘Square hijabs are really easy to wear…that is once you’ve got the hang of them. It’s a matter of wrapping them around your head. It all comes with experience and the more you do it, the easier it gets!’ She then says that for as long as it’s in trend, she will continue to stun in her square hijab.
So what about it makes it so special? It’s a mixture of everything, the chosen colour, fabric and design. Sometimes, the fabric can mean all the difference. If the fabric is too slippery then it just won’t stay in place; and if it’s to rough, then it gets hard to move in. It’s all about the balance and it comes down to what you feel comfortable in. Square hijabs have a tendency to make ones face look round, which for some is a good thing. The thing about square hijabs is that if it is made for you, it will flatter you. And if not… then lets just say there are other styles that will suit you more. But that’s OKAY! Anyway, have a go at a square hijab style, it’s so in right now.
