There are different ways to wear a hijab and you have probably tried them all out by now. But a less known fact is that certain hijab styles go better with certain face shapes. Here are some top tips for wearing a hijab according to your face shape.
Determine Your Face Shape
If you aren’t yet sure what shape your face is you can use this simple guide to establish what shape your face resembles the most. In this article we will go through hijab styles for round, oval, heart-shaped, square, and rectangular face shapes.
These are the most common face shapes and by matching the right hijab style you can really compliment your face and its uniqueness.
The Round Face
The best hijab style to flatter a round face is one that stays a bit looser on the sides. You should try to show a bit more of your forehead and use a style that makes your face look a bit narrower from the sides. The common mistake for those with a round face shape is to try hiding your cheeks.
Hiding your cheeks this way will only make your face look rounder. So don’t go for tight fitting hijab styles; instead use a lot of volume and keep the scarf loose.
The Oval Face
The oval shape is often considered the best face shape and thus it is flattered by many different hijab styles. The best way to wear a hijab with an oval-shaped face is to frame the face with the hijab and show off the beautiful shape naturally.
Regular Pashmina style and tight Turkish style hijabs for instance look great for the oval shape.
The Heart-Shaped Face
The heart-shaped face is best shown with hijab styles that are pinned right under your chin to increase your jawline. Don’t add width to your face by having multi-layers on the side of your head. Covered Girl has a great suggestion for a great heart-shaped hijab style.
You can also make a tiny point on top of your forehead with the scarf. This adds a great touch that will compliment your face shape in a beautiful way.
The Square Face
The best way to soften a square face shape, which has a characteristically strong jawline, is to wear hijab styles that are loose under the chin. Show off your forehead and make the forehead line look round to soften the square shape off your face. Kuwaiti hijab styles look great with a square face.
The Rectangular Face
The key to hijab style for rectangular faces is to make sure you lengthen your face with the style. This means that you should keep your forehead visible and bring the hijab a bit closer to your face from the sides. This will create an illusion of a longer face length.
It is simple to flatter your natural face shape with a hijab when you choose the right style. You can find great hijab style trends as well as tips from Aab Collection.
