    Default Head Coverings: Scarves, Tichels, etc

    I'm not sure if anyone here covers their hair, but I am starting to want to and I want to know what options are out there. I think hijabs are beautiful, but I want something I can wear anywhere and not offend anyone. You can't wear a hijab and go and drink at a bar. Pictures would be great!

    Thank you

    I'm also wondering how to cover hair in a practical and a cute way. So far I've seen cute options for snoods and hair scarfs on Etsy. During the winter a cute breathable hat would also be cute. I'll keep an eye on this thread for other ideas. Thanks for starting this thread. I was just thinking about this.

    I've worn bandannas frequently before, but they don't tend to cover all the hair as well as other things. I would bun it, and tie the bandanna underneath the bun. Totally fits in at a bar. (Just be careful what colors you wear, or you could be mistaken for a gangster I usually wore pink, or tie dye, or glittery, or something outrageous.)

    There are also tichels. A tichel is traditionally a jewish head covering worn by married women. I don't know too much about the history, but I think the basic reason for wearing is modesty. I have seen similar head coverings around before I knew what they were and never really assumed they were religious. I always just thought they looked a little hippie-ish...which I like.

    I love the snoods at the etsy shop a snood for all seasons. They are the only ones I have found that work for me. I wear them more days than not!
    What you find irresistable is what you choose not to resist.

    Also hair scarves (or regular scarves made of slinky / satiny / silky material) can be used to wrap around hair, but I can't seem to figure out how to do it in a cute enough way for everyday use without making me look ridiculous- but hey, it's another option!

    Agreed! Really nice quality--and they have silk snoods, which are very non-damaging to hair (work as sleep caps, too).

    I like the idea of snoods, but I feel like I would be uncomfortable with my neck being so relieved. Maybe I should try to wrap a scarf in a way that still covers my neck, but doesn't look like a hijab. If anyone has found a nice way, please show pictures. I will try to find some too.

    These can be worn to also cover your neck.
