I hope you are all well on this chilly day!
This is my first scarf review! Yay!
The lovely ladies at Sisters in Hijab sent me an awesome cobalt snood and a really pretty headband by Aashiqah G Collections.
I’m pretty much a plain Jane and a snood isn’t something I would go out and buy for myself. I have always admired it on others and how elegant they look but I am so boring that I have never given it a try until now.
The snood itself is made from a really good quality fabric. I deal with fabric on a daily basis at work, so I know a little bit about them :) It contains a good amount of stretch in it, making it easy to manipulate into different styles.
The fabric is also opaque, so it provides good coverage and the handle is soft with excellent drapability. This results in really neat, fluid folds in the snood once it is styled.
Here are a few styles I managed to create with snood/infinity/loop scarf.
Style Number One
For the first style, I wore a plain black burqa and simply placed the snood on my head. How easy? Yet very elegant. I shared a sneak peak of this style on my Facebook Page and a lot of the readers loved it. It would look stunning for special occasions like weddings or Eid etc.
The burqa that I am wearing I purchased a while back from a classmate at Darun Naim but I’m sure Sawants or Get Covered would stock something similar.
Style Number Two
For the second style, I created a turban with the snood. Who doesn’t love a turban ;)
This was really easy to create. Placing the snood back to front – so that it’s on my head but the loop is now sitting against my back as opposed to sitthing on my chest. I then grabbed hold of the two sides, criss-crossed it and then pulled it over my head. I then proceeded to twist the remaining fabric into a rope – sort of like when you roll a piece of dough out into a string. Making sure that it’s all folded in neatly, I criss-crossed it once more over my head. Voila! And no pins needed! I added the chain afterwards by just tucking it between the twisted rolls.
Style Number Three
For the final style, I wore a patterned headband underneath the snood and pinned it under my chin. Then with the fabric in front of me, I twisted it so that it formed another loop and slipped that over my head. Easy Peasy.
Consider me a fan of snoods!
I love how versatile they are and that they aren’t fussy and require minimal pinning. It retails for R85, which isn't too bad if you consider all the variations you could do with it. You can find this snood and many others on the Sisters in Hijab website. Do pop on over there, the site is really well designed and very easy to navigate, allowing you to shop to your heart's content! They also stock a selection of the prettiest headbands by Aashiqah G Collections.
I will be sharing the review on the headbands soon Insha Allah.
Thanks so much for reading guys!
