How to cover area under your chin or your chin itself. Proper hijab hints.
All of us know that this part under your chin is already not part of our faces, so we have to cover it when we put our hijabs on. But it is still not a must to cover chin itself.
I can tell you about my problems. I wear hijab whole day about 10 hours, so was looking for very safe and comfortable way to solve this issue of covering the area under chin. And I found solution with HelikaStyle Underscarves!
On this page let’s together overview all possible ways.
Using scarves and shawls
The way #1
The way #2
The way #3 (jersey scarf)
The way #4
Using 2 piece al-Amira hijab
FYI: Al-Amira hijab is translated as “Princess hijab”. Yes, we are princess! ;-). It was originated and designed in Syria. The first version consists of 2 pieces: underscarf and hood. Next version is 1 piece al-Amira hijab, it has “visor” – part of underscarf sewn to hood. These hijabs can have different lengths: mini, midi and maxi. Also we can find evaluated kinds of such hijabs with different decoration elements (made in Malaysia or Indonesia). Also Kuwaiti hijab – scarf sewn to 1-piece al-Amira hijab.
So, 1 piece Amira hijab does not cover the area under chin at all. See point 4.
2 pieces Amira may have different cuttings. Here everything depends on the used pattern.
I had one stadnard Amira hijab. Here is its photo:
You see how it was designed and on the head it looks like this:
So it does not cover the area we are discussing here. And if you try to put it on the chin it will be very uncomfortable.
You can put it on by placing the seam on the head. Looks better:
You can wear it this way when you use it like underscarf.
The proper hood pattern has to look as the following:
And everything will be covered. Pay attention on this why you buy your next al-amira hijab.
FYI: under-scarf, underscarves – everything we put on under the scarf, hood, khimar, etc. It’s a base we use to fix headdress, it helps to cover carefully hair, covers neck, chin and area under the chin. There are plenty of models that do for us most of the things – full underscarf, ninja underscarf, but the most problematic area is area under the chin.
There are already plenty models of the underscarves which will help to cover everything you need. The best choice is to sew underscarves “Helika” with us 😉 – everything will be covered!
Below I represented other solutions from our sisters.
Using 1 piece al-Amira hijab
Absolutely bad idea. They do not cover you properly.
Only one kind of them called “Iranian style” is perfect. It has one more piece that designed exactly to cover the chin and even more. An you can sew it with HelikaStyle, see our sewing tutorial.
Using Khimars and French Jilbabs
Here everything depends on the cutting. Face line must not have oval shape. It has to have khimar-niqab shape. This is very important!
One more important thing the size of the hijab, it has to fit your head size.
More comfortable khimars having jersey gusset like Iran style amira hijab has.
