If you've seen Turkish hijab fashion houses you'll know what the 'hump' refers to. In the Middle East, the headscarf with a 'point' at the forehead is a look some aspire for. This look happens to be one of my Hijab Defaults because of my Edward-Scissorhands-shaped like head, alhamdulillah.
The Hijab Streamliner:
A square headscarf is folded in half to become the triangular-shaped headwear, it's pinned around the head, usually under the chin, and the fabric is pulled foreward over the head to create a 'roof' - an overcasting shadow. But when a woman's headscarf doesn't sit quite right, the clear plastic 'Streamliner' comes into play.
'Hijab Streamliners describe the "plastic thing" to get the peak for the Turkish style silk hijab, Amira, and other hijab styles; to raise the front of the scarf up and give a sleek elegant look - it streamlines the peak at the top of the scarf.'
Buy this plastic thingy @ $2.50 from Al-Sharifa.
What do you think? To hump, or not to hump?
