Muslim Girl recently released a video of 100 years of hijab styles from around the world in a minute.
The video begins by featuring an Egyptian style from the 1910s, when the country revolted against British occupation.
In the '40s, Pakistan won independence from the British Empire.
Throughout the '70s, world events like the Iranian Revolution prompted changes in roles for women.
In the '90s, the Taliban rose to power and made wearing a burqa mandatory for women in Afghanistan.
Throughout the early 2000s, the Iraq War affected daily life for Iraqi men and women
While many commenters were pleased with the diversity of looks, some have taken to Facebook and Twitter to express their disappointment with the communities that weren’t included.
Amani Al-Khatahbeh, founder of Muslimgirl.com, explained her reasoning in a piece in Vice: "We started with the region that is the largest recipient of the West's failed foreign policy in modern history — the Middle East — and went from there."
The Muslim Girl Facebook page also responded that more videos are coming.
