I always find tutorial hijab useful for me to try out new styles. The criss cross style has always intrigued me. It looked quite complicated to style and I wasn’t sure how to style it and how to create the criss cross. Before I discovered online tutorials and YouTube video tutorials, I would look at an image first and try to figure out how they styled it. The first time I tried to follow a zigzag tutorial, I failed hopelessly and got all tangled in scarves and ended up laughing at myself. Needless to say, the layered zigzag style takes lots of practice. The biggest tip I would give you, is to do it one section at a time. Don’t rush into it, your hijab will end up looking like a mess! Be precise with your folds and keep it neat. Here is a link to my criss cross hijab tutorial, if you are interested in viewing my style. I put a twist on it, so hopefully you like it too.
