YouTube will teach you lol! Its easy.

You can get scarves anywhere. I get most of mine with either Walmart or target honestly. Marshall's has some great ones.

As for actual "hijab shops" online I go with WWW.middleeasternmall.com and really no ones else at this point. I like them a lot.

Yes, there are some without pins, they are called al-amira and they are either one or two pieces that just slip over the head. No pins necessary.

No, as long as where you are praying is clean.

I only wear al-amira. I could never learn to wrap any scarf. They are more expensive because you have to order online and can't just grab some at walmart.

Yes, you have to be covered, but, you could use anything to cover your hair with if you dont have any scarves or anything yet.

If you have some long scarves, wrap it and just tuck it in and it should hold enough for you to pray, insha'Allah.

If you don't have a prayer mat, you can also use anything- a clean towel, sheet, etc- to put down, if you'd rather pray on something other than the floor.

I've bought from hijabgirl.com, shukronline.com (expensive, but beautiful clothes!), hijabyonline.com.  You can also visit your local masjid, sometimes they will have a donation area where you can find hijabs for free, or maybe there's a sister in your area who sells/makes them. 

If you're into sewing (I'm not, but I know some who do this), you can buy any fabric big enough and just sew an edge around it.  This works well with square and rectangle hijabs for wrapping.

 Oh and if pinning scares you, you can technically wrap with no pins and just tuck instead. It's not the most secure but it's possible. A lot of people pin under their chin to start wrapping and I just can't do that. I just pull one side tight and wrap over my head. If that makes any sense at all.

Any website that sells hijabs will also sell underscarves usually. I get mine from middleeasternmall simply because they're cheap. Hijabgirl.com has some great ones in bulk too. I prefer the tube style to the actual cap style. You don't have to have an underscarf piece though. It's just a nice tool to keep the hijab from slipping.
