As-salamu 'alaikum. Hijab is an Arabic word which means 'cover' or 'screen' in English. Muslim women are to cover their body in such a way that non-mahrams may not be attracted to them, this is why they use hijab. The main purpose of hijab is to ascertain a muslim woman's modest appearance. So, if a hijab can cover a woman's awrah perfectly, then any kind of hijab is allowed. Also, hijabs must not be too colorful and attractive.

Good colors are black, brown, gray . Nothing bright in color. As this defeats the purpose of wanting no attention drawn to draw the woman's appearance.
