One Scarf, 9 Ways: A modest fashion approach to headwraps


Modest fashion enthusiast Raihanah Ibrahim gained some buzz on Twitter when she put up a photo of herself modelling nine different styles of headwraps. A lot of word spread and she received requests for a more detailed tutorial, showing how she was able to achieve her looks.

That prompted her to start a Youtube channel that promotes and celebrates modest fashion. Ibrahim is also starting her vlogging career with a video of her now famous ‘One Scarf, Nine Styles’.

With headwraps in styles that include classic looks like knotted scarf and classic turban down to avantgarde styles that include the ‘Aladdin turban’ twist, a gele look for that all important Owambe and a huge bow inspired by Disney characters, Ibrahim shows us that modest fashion can be just as versatile, creative and fun as the conventional types.
