I have been having the best luck thrifting vintage headscarves lately! But with all those pretty colors and patterns, comes different lengths and widths that I have to figure how to tie onto my head. Some scarves are long enough to tie into a nice little bow and others are a little more difficult. I came up with a new way that I thought I should share with you guys! It stays on my head and is super easy to do in the morning when I am half-awake. I am pretty sure you can also apply the same theory to different looks. But onto the steps!
Step 1: Tease and poof your hair. I blow dry my hair with a round brush and then I backcomb the back, smooth it and hold it with some hairspray. Sometimes, I pull some of my hair back with bobby pins and make a low messy bun or piggy tails. Either way, it is going to be easier to get your headscarf to stay on styled hair that is pulled back and has product in it.
Step 2: Use a square scarf. First remove the cat.
Step 3: Fold it in half, corner to corner.
Step 4: Fold the bottom of your triangle up a couple inches and keep folding the scarf up to the long straight edge. I sort of roll up my scarf at the width I want. It doesn't have to be absolutely perfect.
Step 5: You should now have a long scarf ready to put on your head.
Step 6: Tie on the scarf snugly so that the knot is on top and to the side a bit.
I like to cover my ears and put in a couple bobby pins, hiding them near the knot.
Step 7: Tie a second knot, somewhat tight. Not so tight you can't undo it later.
Step 8: Tie a third knot, but this time tie it loosely. You may need to turn the bow so that it is facing the right direction. You want your tails to lay straight and the knot to be kinda puffy.
