So recently for the past two years I've been slowly being put of the hijab that I wear. This has because of numerous reasons, first because I feel I don't look pretty in it and my features would look better without it and my long hair would look nice. Second because I don't understand how it links to modesty because I mean so what if a guys sees your hair, it doesn't mean he's going to want to jump into bed with you. Third was because I was concerned with discrimination, in the past I have failed at job interviews I know that I should have got because the other people were underqualified.
Let me just add, I started wearing the hijab when I was thirteen and didn't understand why people wear it. I feel like I rushed into it
Recently I've become a better Muslim and have been praying 4/5 times a day. However, I still planned to take of my scarf in September when going to uni. I want to have confidence but also not be limited by discrimination by anyone, eg uni professors giving me lower marks, I don't know if stuff like that happens btw but I'm scared of things like that. Also I'm going to uni in central London and travelling on the tube, so I'm scared of islamophobic attacks. So thats why I thought taking of my scarf would help.
A few days ago though, I saw the picture of Nadia from the bake-off in a turban for a headcover and I was really disgusted because it looked awful. I spoke to my friend and she said that a Jewish style tichel covering would look nice in her instead. So later on I decided to look into them myself, I went on YouTube and watched tutorials, that style of head covering looks nice and I think suits me, so I think I'm going to do that style instead of taking of my scarf as I also watched a video of women from different religions saying why they cover there hair.But I'm still concerned for islamophobic attacks while travelling and also discrimination, especially in the future when trying to find a job as a teacher.
What are you thoughts? Are my worries realistic? Should I continue wearing my scarf?
Also what do you think of the new styles? Would I look abnormal wearing them to uni??
Confused over headcovering help please Watch

It's not who you are underneath but what you do that defines you
