Video Clip: Rabia Z Hijab Style Tips

There is also an article and photo gallery to accompany the video. Hat tip to Mariam Sobh of Hijabtrendz for first alerting her readers to the initial article : ) If you want to stay on top of all things Rabia Z friend her on Facebook.

I’ve become a fan of the jersey hijab style lately. Although, I find because of my rounder face that I have to work to add a little bit of volume to the jersey hijab-as it tends to cling. When I wear jersey material as hijab I use a flower clip that I made myself after watching Hegab Rehab’s instructional video.

Which styles do you like, amigas?
