Need to step up your standard style routine? We hear you. Time to kick things up a notch with a simple yet oh-so-fashionable style hack. Our secret: How to tie a head scarf. You’ve seen it on the runways and you’ve admired it on the coolest street style stars and trust us, you’re not alone in thinking “Now, how do I learn to do THAT?” Well, guess what? It’s not half as hard as you think. Chances are, if you’ve woken up with a case of untamable bedhead, or wanted to cover up an unwashed mane, you’ve already thought about it. So the next time you’re caught in a frizzy situation, or want to sweep people off their feet with your tousled charm, we suggest you give these killer ‘dos a try!
Chief on our summer agenda is mastering the turban. This African-style headdress is guaranteed to see a few double takes and will inject a sultry bohemian flair to your look. Choose a bright, patterned scarf paired with a head-to-toe ethnic-inspired get-up or create some interesting contrast with a sleek leather biker jacket, maxi dress and statement accessories.
Place a long rectangle scarf over your head and center at the crown. Grab the two corners on either side and join them together. Twist both sections until they reach the sides. Bring the twisted sections forward and tie into a knot at the front of the head.
You can literally create this sassy retro look in a minute. Pretty but not overdone, the bunny-eared bow is a great way to jazz up a basic wardrobe. A silk or chiffon scarf will give the bow a more fluttery and romantic nature whereas sturdier fabrics will result in a jauntier bow. Wear it with your messiest bun or a topknot for the perfect face-framing hairdo.
Fold a medium length scarf in half to form a triangle. Continue folding the scarf over until you’ve created a long, thin band. Starting at the nape of the neck, wrap the folded scarf around your head and bring both ends to where you want the bow to be positioned. Tie a big floppy bow and play with it as you like.
There’s no simpler way to nail boho-chic then with this stylish accent. A hybrid between a headband and a turban, the turband is an easy fix for salty sea breeze and unruly flyaways, or for days when you simply need to keep your hair in place and out of your way. Typically styled with wavy flowing locks or a simple updo, the turband looks great with any hairstyle and will add polish to even the simplest combination of tees and cut-offs.
Fold your scarf in half to form a triangle. Continue folding the scarf over until you’ve created a long, thin band. Centre the scarf at the nape of the neck, wrap the folded scarf around your head and create a knot at the front. Wrap the ends from the knot around the side of your head and tie them in the back. Tuck in the loose ends.
