How do I wear an Arab-style headdress?

Answer

Arabic headdress also known as the keffiyeh, shmagh, ghutrah and an Arabic scarf, can be worn in several different ways, either by itself or with a cap (igal) and wreath (tagiyyah) to keep it in place. It is worn to protect from the harsh rays of the sun and the whipping sands of the desert. To wear it, place the cap (igal) on your head, place the scarf on top of your head so that there are couple of inches of fabric hanging down over your forehead, place the wreath over your head. Take the right-hand-side corner of the scarf and drape it over your left shoulder (from front to back), then take the left-hand-side corner and drape it over the left shoulder, covering the draping of the right-hand-side.
