Niqab has a huge veryety of shapes, models and other differences according to exact country India
and individual preferences,but it always means- a cloth that cover woman's face leaving eyes open. Some women prefer wear ready-to-wear or one-peace niqab some make it with shayla as i am going to present here. I must notice that this way i use in case i am not going to restaurant while i am outside as soon as it will cause some uncomfortable with eating. But it doesn't mean that i can't eat or drink, i can and its ok if it doesn't take a lot of time and meal is not soup or something with salsa. for that case i use separate black not a big (size of bandana) cloth that i pin to my shayla and i can have my dinner very easy where ever it happens. Sure that i dont mean such restaurants where there are tables separated from another with curtains where woman can completely open her face. Its actually very comfortable but not every restaurant has it. I hope i was clear with this point.
1. shayla , i dont know the size of my own shayla i think its about 120cm/70cm may be a bit bigger , smaller size possible but is not so good for a fine wrap
i use such claw or clip before i wrap my shayla (in some of my previous posts i put a photo of my own )
cover head with shayla like on the pic.
then i pin shayla under the chin with any pin i like (except a safe one, i never use them)
take a long side and wrap it around the head
make sure that the edge of the shayla lie a very nice way revealing all its pattern and not very low cos we will need its loosy part that was left under the chin.
then i take that loose part of the shayla under my chin measuring it i check if it can easy reach my eyes and the same time stay enough wide and loose. It will be double levels of material of the shayla and even if its a shifon it will not be transparent.
then i pin one side on the left at the level of my eyes or a little bit lowerwith a slight straching shayla over my nose i pin the right side as well
My last move it is arranging shayla on the top. Using a nice decorated shining pin i fix my shayla with it on the top for a fine look.
pin for the top can be something like this one on the next pic.
ok, now you can see the final look
it is loosy and high. Forehead and eyebrow can be easily covered with the same shayla or additional bandana under it.
