Makeup Artist Uses Hijab to Creatively Transform Herself into Disney Princesses

Malaysian makeup artist Saraswati (aka Queen of Luna) aims to establish that anyone can become a Disney princess, even if they wear a hijab. The creative young woman has transformed herself into just about every Disney princess on the roster, including Elsa, Jasmine, Mulan, and Pocahontas. The artist makes her hijab a key part of each look by impressively shaping and accessorizing the material so it resembles various hairstyles. Saraswati also ensures that her hijab's tint perfectly matches the princesses' hair color.

Saraswati's creative abilities are just one example of how hijabs are being integrated into the fashion world. Fashion house Dolce & Gabbana recently announced that they're going to produce a line of hijabs and abayas. Japanese retailer Uniqlo has begun to do the same in collaboration with designer Hana Tajima. With artists like Saraswati paving the way for creative hijab use, we have a feeling that many more companies will follow suit.

To see who Saraswati transforms herself (and her hijab) into next, you can follow her on Instagram.

Saraswati also transforms herself into other Disney characters and villains:
