Editor's note: It's our annual #LikeYouMeanItHH beginning-of-the-year reflection time! What does it mean to "wear it like you mean it?" We invite you (and ourselves) to renew our intentions and reflect on what our hijab (and faith and other areas of our lives) mean to us.
Wearing hijab like you mean it – the theme and crux of this introspective period we are in at Haute Hijab this month (and honestly, it’s always something we think about here) – means many things to the women we serve and how we at HH work to serve those needs.
It means understanding our struggles – both physically with the actual wearing of hijabs and making sure we equip you with the best hijabs and accessories that we can and mentally/spiritually – by delving deep into our stories, feelings, joys, frustrations around hijab and what it means to be a Muslim woman as a whole.
With this in mind, we’ve been asking you questions on Instagram to gain more insight into what you love about wearing hijab, what you struggle with, and where we can help you. It’s been an affirming, eye-opening, beautiful, cathartic, painful, grateful and emotional experience for us. We hope it’s been that for you as well.
So – what’s your favorite part about wearing hijab? What makes you smile and gives you joy? Check out what 18 of you had to say! And come back to the blog to engage with us on some harder conversations around some of the challenges many of you in our communities shared when it comes to their hijab journey.

3. It keeps my vanity in check and reminds me of my identity and purpose in life.
