Tudung Bawal Tutorial: Easy Ways to Put On Your Hijab

Tudung bawal is a necessity for all Muslim women in Malaysia, some might even consider is as a starter hijab for those starting their journey into modest wear. For those who don’t know, tudung bawal is basically a square hijab that can be styled in many different ways. The scarf used for tudung bawal is usually bigger than usual so that it can cover the neck, the shoulders, and parts of the chest.

How to Easily Put On Your Tudung Bawal

In order to make this process easier, you might want to prep a few items beforehand. You would need safety pins or broaches, as well as the scarf for your tudung bawal. Make sure the scarf is of high quality so that it won’t be ripped when you secure it with the safety pins. It’s recommended that you wear a cap underneath your tudung bawal to ensure that your hair will stay in place throughout the day.

Fold your tudung bawal into two parts, one longer side than the other, then place it over your head. Collect the fabric under your chin and secure it with a pin. Wrap the longer side of the scarf around the back of your neck and bring it back towards the front. Twist the other side and secure the ends on the top of your head. This creates the illusion of a fuller, shapelier head. Ensure that all partings are secured by the pins.
