Stockholm Syndrome should not be confused with 'choice', as it so often is with regards to this, and other topics. If it was someone's 'choice' to walk around in a pink tutu, but they would risk facing severe rebuke, punishment or even death if they refused, then is it really a choice?
What is not modest about showing one's face or hair? I bring attention to the extremes because they are relevant. In Saudi Arabia the dress code is enforced to such a harsh extent because of Sharia law, which is based on Islam -- teachings from the Qu'ran. If Islamic law is teaching that it is immodest and haram to not wear some sort of head/face covering like the hijab then it is not a choice. In those liberal states, all they are doing is choosing not to enforce what their own religion tells them should be enforced, but that doesn't make that train of thought ubiquitous. Wearing a bikini is not the same as being fully clothed with your hair exposed, or do you think exposing hair and facial features is immodest?
