Hijab Tutorials on Youtube-Pixie's Picks

My favourite how-to-wear hijab & niqab styles. Basically, my needs are A. chest coverage, i.e if the scarf or niqab doesn't cover the boobs I don't care how loose your jilbab is ect, it isn't the khimar of the Qu'ran, B. covers all of my hair, C. I need a few easy options, and D. I need a few glam styles to mix it up once and a while. E. Niqab styles need to be easy to eat and drink under.

My fave hijab wrapping techniques (I always adapt to cover the chest, even if I have to wear 2 shaylas ect) 1.) Simple no pins required hijab style (pashmina length, non-see through scarf required) by Pixie & Boxie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WYsv-kWN5k

These are niqab styles for a very long shayla (oblong/rectangular hijab). I have a scarf that is 2 meters x 60 inches roughly (I know, bad math). I also need two hijab pins (the plastic covered saftey pins) and one stick pin. I sometimes wear a hijab cap underneath as well, to hide my eyebrows but cover more easily. 1.)
