Khaleejia said: Big Hair clips are very popular amongst khaleeji women. A hair clip is "mishbak" (مشبك) or shabasa in Arabic.
There are many huge and colorful hair clips sold in the shops. Khaleeji girls prefer to use a massive hair clip as it helps to create a necessary volume under the scarf (sheyla) that is to achieve the trendy "hump" look. All you need to do is to pin your hair with a huge hair clip on top of your head and put a sheyla on afterwards ;)
There's a big choice of hair clips on the market, some of them for the price of 3 -15 AED from China. But many hair clips are made by local women at home - simple ones will cost around 20 AED and beautiful hair clips for special occasions will cost 40-110 AED
