  1. 1

    Rest the underscarf section of the hijab on the head to prepare for wrapping it properly. The hijab will have a wrapping portion included. Make sure that this is resting over the chest.

  2. 2

    Allow the left and right hanging sides of the hijab to cross over. This will create an "X" shape that will leave an open loop at the bottom.

  3. 3

    Take the looped portion and raise it over your head. Wrap it completely around the head until it reaches the front again.

  4. 4

    Once you have gathered the hijab towards the front, let the remaining material under the chin gather. Use a dressing pin to secure the gathering material in place.
