Khaleeji Hair Clip

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


  1. Salam sis mashallah i love the 11th and the last ones . I also have this kind of hair clips, but when i'm putting it i feel little pressure on my head :)


  3. woww thanks for the post !
    yeahh its soo true!
    when i use the hair clip my shayla stays in tact !

    they sell the hair clips at the malls right in dubai like those claire's stores is it ?

    coz i'll be going to UAE real soon i wana buy more coz ive only got 1 hair clip rite now which i bought from the UK .. my country doesnt sell these kind of hairclips for the shayla.. =(

  4. im in love with the hairclips, but im wondering whats the point of buying the fancy ones if its going to stay under the shayla anyways? or is it just for personal satisfaction knowing that u have on the fancy one lol
