How to Tie a Scarf in your Hair

how to wear a scarf

I have about a thousand vintage scarves and anytime I feel like they’re not getting any love, I whip them out and do something fun in my hair.  I realized that although I rock a scarf in my hair on a regular basis, I haven’t shared too much on the blog. There was this epic pool party post which a lot of you reference for some inspo! Here are my four favorite ways to put my vintage scarves to good use (and to help resolve bad hair days!)

How to Tie a Scarf in Your Hair

TWISTED HEADBAND

Start with a square scarf. Fold one corner to the other to form a triangle. Fold the corner down to about the middle, and then fold again until your scarf is about 2 inches wide.

Put the scarf around your head with the ends in the front, making sure the folded side of the scarf is against your head (make sure any tags are hidden).

Twist at the front tightly.

Tuck the ends behind/underneath the scarf and secure with bobby pins.

KNOTTED KERCHIEF 

Start with a square scarf. Fold one corner to the other to form a triangle. Fold the corner down to about the middle, and then fold again but leave it thicker.

I like to pull my hair into a messy topknot. If your topknot is sleek, mess it up a bit!

Put the scarf around your head with the ends in the front, making sure the folded side of the scarf is against your head (make sure any tags are hidden).

Tie it in a loose knot at the front. I double knot it to secure the scarf.

TURBAN

Start with a square scarf. Fold one corner to the other to form a triangle.

Place the scarf with the pointed corner toward the front and bring the ends to the front. Tie it in a loose knot at the front.

Tuck in the ends into the scarf. Pull the “v” flap up and tuck in behind the knot.

SIMPLE ROSETTE 

Start with a square scarf. Fold one corner to the other to form a triangle. Fold the corner down to about the middle, and then fold again until your scarf is about 2 inches wide.

Put the scarf around your head with the ends in the front, making sure the folded side of the scarf is against your head (make sure any tags are hidden).

Tie it in a loose knot at the front. Twist both ends of the scarf in opposite directions and then twist them together.

Loop the twist together and tuck in to create a rose.

    All these versions are adorable! I used to wear “head wear” all the time but have kind of forgotten about it. Always a cute touch in the summer though!
