About Me

Salam Alaikuum.. Welcome to my Blog :) My name is Lina-Spahic, I am Originally Indonesian and currently living in Bosnia Herzegovina. I came up with the concept of a beauty blog because I have soo many interests in Fashion and Beauty that I figured I needed an outlet to get them out… and hopefully touch those with similar mindsets and passions. I'm not great in particularly at anything, but i'm HAPPY just being me :) In this blog I hope to share Tips and thoughts on Beauty and Fashion and Especially for Hijabis. I will write review about things i would wear and it look nice on me, what i bought and i have tried, and what i will buy and give my view to you out there. Please note that this blog is on Beauty category.. not Religious category. I hope you will enjoy it ♥♥♥

Since i started to cover my hair, I finally found the hijab style that suits me, which involves me putting my hair up a little higher in order to allow my hijab to stay in place. I knowwww there are so many controversial about this "Bumpyyy" thing under the Hijab, BUT I can’t seem to find another hijab style that I like/suit, and i only really need the volume around my face, not at he back. 
Well some people go so far as to claim that it is Haram (forbidden) because it draws attention to a woman's hair. But for me, I guess its all based on intentions. 
So let me share with you since i have so many questions regarding my inner hijab and what i usually put under my scarf to get a little volume.

Hair Clip

You can find sizes for the hair clip, from big, medium, to small. Since i only need a little volume and just a modest height with a low bump, I usually choose the small size one, like the pink clip is consider the smallest.

After I put a hair clip, instead of using a spandex headband that most of hijabi wear for their inner scarf, i wear this kind of cap/inner scarf. Why i like this kind of inner scarf is that the front part of this inner hijab helps me easier to shape my scarf, and it also give me a longer and more oval face. Besides, the back part of this inner scarf helps my hair clip look more nice round shape at the back.

Anyway, according to my Opinion, having a moderate volume/bump for your scarf i think it looks quite nice. Just DON'T overdone it ! you don't want to look like this:

I hope this post helps you guys who is wondering what is my inner scarf in my hijab tutorial or my daily hijab. Since this hair clip thing is stirring controversy among hijabi, so if you think this does not appropriate, you don't have to follow.

I'm sure each person has their own individual taste especially in their dressing style for special occasion. But I'm not sure how formal the dress code is but a dress or maxi skirt won't go amiss on this sort of occasion. Sometimes when we hear special occasion, it immediately cross in mind that it should be a glamor layered hijab with so many colors and full accessories, etc. Well, it shouldn't always be like that. When i think about special occasion, what first cross in my mind is a satin colored shirt tucked in with a "not your usual everyday" hijab style and a cute contrasting clutch. like this:

And I loooove this outfit by Shaikha Mozah! It's young, fun and perfect for a formal dinner or attending a wedding party: 

If you want to look sophisticated in black, (black is always a safe color), I really love below black dress. it's very simple and sophisticated, you just need to add a hijab on with some accessories of course so it won't really look too simple:

Another idea is to wear a maxi dress of your choice and glam it up heels/wedges, a jacket to make it more formal and a clutch. This look would work best if the event isn't as formal as a prom or dinner but you are expected to look smart. This look is pretty casual but it shows you what i mentioned above.

If you want a more promy look, I would advise a simple evening gown coupled with a bolero or fur. Something like this would look cute for a more formal event where women are wearing evening gowns:

For those of you who love to wear Abaya, for a special occasion, try wearing a glam Abaya and some accessories on your black hijab like this:

I hope this post help those of you who is wondering what to wear to a formal occasion, dinner party, prom, wedding party etc :)

I didn't expect that i will get so many response on my previous Hijab tutorial. Thank you guys for watching it. and I have received so many messages from friends and some people who ask me to do the Hijab tutorial for beginners, as some of them are beginners trying first time putting on a Hijab. So finally i did make these simple basic pashmina hijab tutorial. It is great because even if you live in the most hijab-deprived place on this earth, you can still find a pashmina, which can stick to your head. It's very easy and effortless, yet you can wear it for any occasion too ! I am using in this video a chiffon material, because it is very easy to be shape, and i also like the size. However, you still can wear other material such as cotton, cashmere, or silk. So I hope this video helps beginners who is trying to put a stylish Hijab on :)

I respect any individual style even though it's never ever written on the book, BUUUUT sometimes when you see people who wears clothes that are not right, The clothes do not match each other in style or color, or it do not fit the person correctly, it turn to be be kinda weird, especially as a hijabi, don't you think ?!? Person who crosses the boundaries of fashion and style, like taking a fad too far, or wearing too many trends at once called a Fashion Victim.  It basically taking the look from the glamorous to the ridiculous. So as a Hijabi, keep your dress modestly and stylishly at the same time. And pleaseeeee please please don't try this..

She started wearing hijab since 2003 after hajj. At that time her father worked in Jeddah as a home staff for hajj affair. Since there are massive up-growing Muslim designers and Muslim Magazines, her appearance as a veiled woman fulfilled all the demands from Muslim designers and magazines. Now we can see her appearance with all the stylists hijab, designs, hijab fashion shows and magazines. Besides of her modelling, she is working as a civil servant at The Indonesian Ministry of Religious Affair.

She gets more respect, she gets her own changing room and privacy during fashion show even though there were a tight schedule going on. She didn't stop just Being a hijabi model and a civil servant, she also established and launched a hijabi Community in jakarta Indonesia, where this community's visions is to accommodate events related to hijab and muslimah, from fashion to islamic studies, from hijab style to learning Islam, anything that make woman a better muslimah.

The basic step for this Hijab look is quite similar with the previous turban hijab or head wrap tutorial i made. just in this style, i use another layer of the pashmina to cover the neck and create kinda neat look to your chest. This style is almost suitable for any event you have. You can wear it on daily everyday Hijab, evening, collage, special occasions, meeting, or interview.
Everybody love Black Hijab. Many woman choose black Hijab because it can be match easily with any kind of clothing color you wear. It work superb with printed cloth with black motif or background.
So in this plain basic color, you still can create gorgeous result to your appearance and yet looking elegant and classy.
