According to the interpretive theories, social phenomena, including hijab, are made by society members, jointly. In the beginning every person has a distinct perception of a social phenomenon, then different people share their perceptions through social interactions and therefore the similarities and differences of this perceptions and also the misperceptions are modified and a shared social reality which is accepted and obeyed by all society members is shaped, and this society-made social reality canalize and direct their social behaviors. So to modify ifaf & hijab culture in Iran, we should rebuild the correct way of cover and behavior that has been changed and deviated during last years, and redefine a new social reality on the basis of Islamic values and make it objective. In this article, the modification process of ifaf & hijab social reality is presented though 3 stages of externalization, objectivation & internalization. In the first stage of this process, correct and value-based, objective and shared perceptions and interpretations about agreeable type of behavior and wearing (behavior and wearing standards) is shaped. In the second stage a new social reality about the Islamic type of behavior and wearing is created based on Islamic values, and finally in the third stage, underlying values of the new social reality is internalized and stabilized in the society.
