Bridal hair under hijab?

I’m not Muslim, but I do know that a lot of Muslim brides and women wear their hair in buns under the hijab.

In all of the weddings I’ve seen, the bride’s hijab was always on. Of course, there could have been parts of the wedding where they didn’t have them on and I just didn’t see it, but I kind of doubt that’s the case. It’s probably a good idea to keep the hijab on. 

Do you have a Mosque around you that you could go to or call to get help? If you don’t I can try to find you some resources.

I only wore the scarf to the religious ceremony in the mosque and I just put it loosely over my hairdo and pinned it (it was covering everything that it should cover).

If the fabric is thick enough it only needs one layer. Ask someone to help you place it carefully on your hair and wrap it around you (no big movements with arms over your head if your hair has been volumised and pinned up…). Test before to make sure you get the fabric position right the first time. 😉
