    I am not muslim, however I do occassionally work with a lady who is and there are surgical caps for orthopedic cases that cover the head and also neck. I wish i had a photo, she wears those caps and has not had any issues. Hope this helps.

    these ones marv? ..the only problem with these is that they are see through, though the first one doesnt appear to be so. but if it was a problem these could be worn over the hijaab.

    The small picture looks like what she wears, the other ones are too sheer and I don't believe would be acceptable (would they?)

    as has been suggested if managers are unhappy with an externally sourced hijab you could wear an ortho hood over it or how's your green surgical towel origami ...

    I did clinical in OR with my hijaab and they just asked that I put the ends underneath my scrubs so nothing is hanging out (I wear the square shaped ones). Then I tied the surgical cap on top of my hijaab.

    The whole point of the cap is to prevent hairs from contaminating the sterile field - so the hijaab is definitely a plus and something you shouldn't worry about. If they hire you with hijaab - you already know that they are not concerned about it.

    Good luck!
