Reading Up on Muslim Headscarves

I wanted to learn more about Muslim dress--specifically, now to wrap and secure the hijab or khimar, which is the headscarf that some Muslim women wear. So I found a site called Haya Hijabs.

I like them, though my inner Victorian gentleman/ex-Death-Eater thinks some of the styles look a bit garish.

Paul: "More than a 'bit' garish. They have paisley. And zebra stripes. And polka-dots. You are not to wear any of that rubbish."

Me: "Excuse me?"

Paul, pointing: "Purple...paisley...headscarf. Brain shutting down, now."

Anyway, I want one or two. I have a couple of Muslim consumers now, and should I ever meet them in person, I'd like to be respectful and have some sort of head covering available.

Okay, I just plain think they're pretty and elegant, and I'd love to wear one, except that everyone in my office would think I was weird if I did come in wearing one.

Someday, somehow, I will have characters who wear headscarves and long, comfortable dresses.
