Organizing Headscarves Tips 101

Organizing Headscarves Tips 101

From jersey, cotton, and silk, to suede, viscose and chiffon, our closets are brimming with different hijab fabrics, colors and styles. With all the blessings that the come with being Hijabi one of the biggest issues is organizing the piles and piles of hijabs that get collected in our closets!

We all come from different backgrounds and lifestyles. Some people have enough space to store all their hijab scarves comfortably while others struggle to pile them into one drawer where you can probably see your hijabs sticking out of the all ends.
After much research and product trials Niswa Fashion’s team brings you our top SEVEN ways to organize your hijabs in different storage settings.
1.Under the Bed
It may sound like an odd spot for hijabs but, for those ultimate fashionistas that have thousands of clothes and no place to put their hijabs a good option is storing them under the bed. We recommend an under-the-bed organizer. This organizer is the holy grail of hijab storage. Each compartment can fit up to 5-6 hijabs for up to a total of 96 hijabs. What we like to do is organize each compartment based on color. That way when you pull it out from under your bed you can easily see all the colors and choose the one that goes with your outfit best.

2. Inside your Drawers
The most common and most obvious would be to dedicate a drawer to your hijabs. Depending on what kind of dresser space you have, deep or shallow, get a drawer organizer that holds single hijabs. We recommend this tie holder from Amazon. Each hijab can easily fit into one compartment and the thin storage holder can be stacked in deep drawers and you can fit up to 50 hijabs.

3. A Wall Organizer
For those with plenty of closet wall space. This DIY hijab storage allows you to create your hijab wall. Most recently we have seen our ambassador @styledbyduha organize her hijabs like this and we are here for it.  In this case, you can purchase curtain rods like this from Amazon. Install them on a wall of your choice in your closet, or behind your door, and you can create a hijab wall. Each rod can be organized by color or by fabric/occasion and then by color. At the end you will be left with an easy to use hijab rod that slips hijabs on and off. The great thing about this is you can adjust the length of the rod to suit your wall. You can hang the hijabs on the rod directly or purchase plastic scarf rings for a more polished look. 

4. Closet Rack for Hijabs
A little more on the pricey side with this way you dedicate a closet rod to just hijabs. Some people have their closest divided into two. With this you can just loop all your scarves over the rod so they hang freely in the closet. 

5. Drawers/Dresser from Ikea
Ikea has a bunch of cute dresser options for hijabs. The dressers are tall and narrow or wide and short. There are plenty of options to choose from. Once you buy one you can easily purchase the organizers for in the drawers. Now you have a specific place for all your hijabs and it’ll look cute too. Order similar dresser HERE

6. A Scarf Organizer.
Many Hijabi closets consist of this easy-to-use hijab hang. This circle organizer, that is a staple for closets, has separate sections where each hole gets a hijab. Although,  often times with this organizer, hijabs aren’t easily visible . Although they hold a lot of hijabs, this method is good for storing a lot of hijabs but not for organization or ease of use.

7. Over-the-door Organizer.
If closet space is too full and another full dresser purchase isn’t not an option. An easy organizing method we tried was to store our hijabs in an over the door organizer.  This specific organizer has clear inserts so that you can see all your hijabs. The right and left sides are open for an easy grab and go. It saves space because it hangs easily over your door and it’s great because it can act like a makeshift hijab shelf.

For all of our fellow Hijabis, hope this list of different ways to organize your hijabs helps you in getting some ideas for making your closet look neat and pretty.
