Getting fashionable with Scarves in your Hair
Posted on May 20 2019
Did you know that scarves are not just meant to be worn around your neck, there are so many colours, patterns and sizes out there that your imagination is really the limit to putting the finishing touches to an outfit. They are a great way to add some fun, femininity and colour to casual look or event look.
Here are some ways to bring back the headscarf as a hair accessory and mix up your wardrobe to give your current season outfits some flair and new life.
Give the classic ponytail some colour by adding a silk scarf. You can pull it off with high, medium or low ponytails and it looks exceptionally beautiful with loose and wavy curls. You can use both thin twilly scarves or if you have a square scarf you can roll or fold it into a thin rectangle shape and tie it up. Simple!
NO ORDINARY BUN
Turn your hair bun into a piece of art! This look is very fresh and colourful. Simply tie up a messy bun on top of your head and wrap your thin light scarf around it. You can leave the tails of your scarf free for a long voluminous look. Tying it around once or continuously wrap it around your bun for a neater look. Pair this look with your favourite earrings and you’re good to go.
PLAIT IT IN
Next time you go to plait your hair why not grab a small silk scarf. It's as simple as imagining the scarf as a mock "extension" of your hair. First clip the scarf at the base of your hair and then substitute the scarf for a strand of hair. Start off with the scarf strand first then plait as you normally would. You can leave it out as a plait or pull it up into a bun.
WHY NOT TURBAN
This is one of the boldest ways to wear a scarf. This is also a great option for people that may not have been blessed with lots of hair or those going through hair loss. This requires a big scarf to encapsulate the whole head. Open up the scarf fully and place it behind the head or on top of the head. Smoothing the surface, bring the tail ends forward or backwards depending on how you choose to wear it. Secure your look by twisting it like you would do to wrap your hair in a wet towel and then coil it whichever way you want. You can coil it around your head, tie it up in a bow or create a striking rosette. Endless possibilities await.
So next time you go to wrap the scarf around your neck or are looking for a way to accessorise a basic outfit, why not think about your hair being the source of your inspiration and colour.
