Religion is the first thing that comes to our mind when we see someone with a hijab. In Islam, the hijab is considered to be a symbol of dressing modestly and exposing our love to Allah SWT. In many Islamic countries, hijab is compulsory whereas, in others, it is a choice. Hijab styles also differ according to regions and their cultures. The particular manner of carrying it also identifies the region and the culture.
Like many Islamic countries, in Turkey, hijab isn’t compulsory, but the women who take hijab have a unique style of carrying it. As mentioned previously, there are a lot of ways to tie hijab. Turkish women add a bit spark and style in the ordinary, boring or traditional hijab style with some jewellery.
Steps to tie a Turkish Hijab:
- First things first, to tie a Turkish hijab and fashion, firstly you would need a bony cap to hold your scarf, a hijab bun to add volume to your hijab. Secondly, some pins to tie the hijab and finally a hijab of mostly silk or satin material since Turkish women mostly tie silk scarves although it is hard to set.
- Secondly, you need to wear the bony cap and tie your hair in a bun. Now you need to pin the Hijab bun over your hair with some bobby pins so that it can stay.
- After you have worn your under-scarf tightly and adequately, now you need to fold your scarf into a triangle, not into an even triangle, there should be more fabric on either side. Now you need to bring the wrapped hijab over your under-scarf.
- Make sure that the scarf is lying evenly on both sides of your shoulder. Pin the scarf underneath your chin.

When you have a round face, wearing hijab can be a risking thing that It may not make your face look even rounder. Turkish hijab style for round face is to make a point at the tip and keep the hijab a bit loose from the sides of the cheeks. The tip will make your face look sharper, and the free side will not make your cheeks bulge. Mostly women in Turkey wear opaque satin or skin material which can be kept tight or loose from the sides according to the shape of the face. Some women may also use nude shades to keep their hijab trendy yet modest.
