The first hijab hairstyle that we love is the braided bun. When it comes to the best hairstyle ideas for hijabs, this one is a winner, especially for thick hair, or hair which falls out of place easily.

1. Begin by gently brushing your hair into a secure pony tail, and fixing it with a hairband at a midpoint of your head.

2. Take the middle, thickest section of your hair, and split it into three sections. Braid this section of your hair in a 3-strand plait, secure with a hair tie.

3. Take all the hair, including the plait, and wrap it around the base of your pony tail into a spiral.

4. Complete style by pinning your look in place with bobby pins

5. Style your hijab as normal for a secure and comfortable hijab hairstyle

Hairstyle Ideas For Hijabs: The Crown Braid

Another hairstyle idea for hijabs that will never fail you is the crown braid. This hairstyle is ideal if you want to prevent damage to your hair, and want a style that will hold all day- hooray

1. Start by getting your braid on: split your hair into two sections down the middle, and tie one section to the side

2. Starting at the bottom of your hair, separate a bottom section into three strands.

3. Wrap the strands of hair over one another as you would with a conventional braid, but work up the hair to incorporate more strands as you get closer to the crown of your hair.

4. Secure the end of your braid with a hairband, and repeat the same braiding process on the other side of your hair.

5. Once both sides of the braid are completed, wrap them around the crown of your head, and secure them in place with bobby pins.

6. Tie your hijab as normal over the top of this style for the perfect stay-all-day ‘do.

Hairstyle Ideas For Hijabs: The Loop Bun

2. Tie a ponytail, but rather than pulling your hair all the way through, tie it into a loop that sits comfortably at the bottom of your head.

3. Secure your loop bun with hair pins, and style your hijab over the top for the perfect speedy get away in the morning!
