Mirna Rayes does not mind wearing makeup and decorating her headscarf, and said that despite her choice to wear the hijab she is still a fashionable woman. Rayes, the only woman wearing a hijab who agreed to be photographed by The Daily Star, was at a beauty shop owned by Rosa in the northern city of Tripoli's Qobbeh area, where the female patrons, protective of their privacy, were reluctant to let the mostly male journalist team enter. Rayes said usually she styled her hijab differently by using a wide array of colors and scarves. Rosa has several stories about women who wear the hijab coming into her salon asking for a complete makeover.Seeing women wear headscarves in the mostly conservative city of Tripoli is common nowadays. Many will say their choice to don the scarf does not detract from their fashion sense and love for experimenting with the latest styles. Women's sense of style also changed during this time.Now women are generally more conservative in the northern city, and many have taken the decision to wear the headscarf in recent decades.
