How to wear the Turkish Hijab (video)

Salam my darlings,

This post was created for one of my sisters hadiya who asked me how to wear the turkish scarves. 

I’m sure that many of you have found these videos on the internet but nevertheless I will post them for those who haven’t seen them yet..

Here are two of them, the first one for woman of all ages, the second one for the young ones. 

So enjoy it and if there are any problems, please tell me I will try to help you..

Greetz =)



  1. as salam aleykoum sister

    hehehehhe we now have the secret for the famous bump under the scarf

  2. isnt is unislamic to hv a big bump on ur head like that?

  3. Yes it is. You shouldn’t exaggerate the bump like many girls do…

  4. Assalamu alaikom dear sister!!
    I actually figured out how to tie the turkish hijabs and the videos were really helpful since they show the different syles but guess what…i still can’t get rid of 10 pins (hehehe) that i need to make my hijab look neatly tied. Do you also use this many pins:)? btw. is your name esra? i’m guessing that cuz in the response above the name is esra with your trade mark (cute) eye:)

  5. Va alaikoum selam dear sister dia.
    Don’t worry, you have only get used to it. And you have to practice, practice and practice =) When I first tried to wear the hijab I used 9 pins or so, but now after two years I have ONLY 4 pins =). But this is really the minimum cause satin hijabs get out of place sooo easily…
    Yeah, my name is Esra. Did ya like it? =)

  6. oh yeah! its a really pretty name:) reminds me of esra wal miraj day

  7. Oh, thank you dear. This was the reason why my parents named me so =)

  8. Hi, I’m not sure why I can’t see the video..maybe it’s my pc settings here since I’m accessing your site from my office. I’m sure that this is a great tutorial!


  9. @Tudung:
    Salaams, oh thank you. Yes I think the pc settings must be the problem…

  10. Salam Alikom

  11. Asalamalikum,
    I love the coulor of the hijab but i dont think i would be able to control the satin fabric,
    Its hard to hide the bump on your head if you’ve got long thick hair but i don’t underrstand why women would want to exgaerate a bump on there head???
    The hijab model is amazingly emotionless, wonder how she keep thats straight face all the way though.

  12. hey esra do u live in turkey?

  13. Hey no, I’m from Germany.

  14. yess.. i wonder why is it unislamic to have a bumps in your hair..? is it forbidden in islam to have a bumps in our hair?

  15. Do your models wear a hair piece to get the bump how is it done

  22. Hi Sibgha…as far as i know there is not any outlet in Pakistan specialinsing in Turkish hijabs, i have always searched there in my every visit to KHI. I have been in Germany, Dubai n now in Sweden here atlast found the hijab but was surprised to see as it has nothing very different from other scarfs, but just a small rectangular piece of Silk cloth….im now planning to buy cloth from paistan n make it of the same size. One more thing, the cap under the scarf r now available in KHI, n Hijab ul Hareem.
