The Shayla, Al-Amira, Khimar and Square...
What is it?
The shayla, al-amira, and khimar are the three most popular types of headscarves.
How, why, and where is it worn?
The shayla is a rectangular piece of cloth (favored by women in the Gulf region and making a surge in North America) wrapped around the head and pinned in place on the shoulder. The al-amira is a two-piece veil consisting of a cap or extra-large headband and a tube-like scarf worn over that. Women around the world wear this style. The khimer is a long cape-like
Probably the most popular style and my favorite, is Shayla style.
Usually small under scarf and pins are used to keep Hijab in place .
The next popular style is Amirah Hijab ,which mostly worn by younger sisters ,as a starter Hijab ..
Its very easy to wear .Its two piece Hijab ,that doesn't require pins and stays perfectly on its place..
it may look little bit tight sometimes and not have enough coverage for some ...
The next style is Khimar ,which is the almost the same style as Amirah Hijab ,but its much longer and looks like this:
Some khimars are worn with face veil(niqab)
face veil (niqab)
There is another popular style of Hijab :is square Hijab .It is also easy to wear .
Some of them come in very rich ,feminine colors and designs .For example :square turkish Hijabs.
