One of the most popular ways to wear a scarf in your hair is as a head wrap, but there are lots of other ways to wear scarves into your hair. The simplest way is to tie a scarf in your hair like headband, but you can also get creative with weaving them into braids and buns. Once you know how to do a few basic styles, the possibilities are endless!
Start with your hair down or pulled into an up-do. Any of the steps in this section can be completed with your hair loose. You can also pull your hair up into a high ponytail, top knot, or bun first. Once you have your hair how you like it, choose one of the ideas from below.
If you choose to leave your hair loose, make sure that you place the scarf underneath all your hair, not over it.
Wrap and tie a scarf around your head like a headband. Place a skinny fabric scarf against the nape of your neck. Pull the ends of the scarf towards the top of your head and tie them into a double-knot.
You can also fold a kerchief diagonally a few times to make a skinny band and use that instead.
Begin with a knotted headband, then tie the ends into a bow. Start with a long, skinny scarf wrapped and tied around your head, like a headband. Next, fold the ends of the scarf into loops, and tie them together again to create a bow.
Tuck the tail of the bow under the headband for a chic look.
You can have the bow centered over your forehead, or you can position it off to the side.
A kerchief may not work well for this step. If the kerchief is too small or your head is too big, there won't be enough fabric leftover for the bow.
Tuck the ends of a knotted headband scarf for a seamless look. Wrap a thin scarf around your head, then twist the ends together once to tighten the headband. Tuck the ends of the scarf under the headband to hide them from view. Secure the headband with bobby pins, if needed.
You can use a kerchief folded into a skinny band for this step.
Do not tie the ends of the scarf into a knot, or you'll create a bulge and ruin the streamlined look.
