A Head Scarf is a Multi-Faceted Accessory

Headscarves have been worn for eons for a number of reasons. They can be used for keeping the head warm, to keep hair do’s intact, or purely as a fashion statement. Katharine Hepburn and Grace Kelly made the trend way popular in the 60s.

Here’s how to wear a head scarf

head scarf You can simply fold a scarf in to a triangle and wrap it around your head and tie the corners falling down your face into a knot. This look is quite common and keeps the hair from flying astray. You can also try various styles of wrapping a head scarf which will make you look ultra-chic.

Let’s start with the ‘Up in Knots’ style, which looks like a hair band and holds hair in place. Take a scarf or a skinny scarf and fold it horizontally until you are left with about a 4 inch wide rectangle. Center the scarf on the nape of the neck, bring each side to the front of the head, and tie a double knot. Take the two sides hanging down, twist, wrap, twist again, and tuck in the ends.

The second style is aptly called ‘Little Bow Peep’. This too is more or less like a hair band, but looks really cute, too. Take a skinny scarf; fold it in horizontally in half, just like ‘Up in Knots.’ Next, center the scarf at the nape and tie a knot by bringing both sides on top of your ears. Make a two sided knot over one eye, tie a bow, and tuck in the ends.

Headscarves are fun

How about a style known as ‘Knotted and Nautical,’ which begins the same way as the other two styles. The knot this time is centered on the head and the loose ends are tied, twisted and tucked under.

Last comes the ‘Itty Bitty Bow.’ A small square scarf is folded in a triangle. Centered on the neck, the scarf is tied over the ears on the top of the head. The tips are tucked in like a bow.

Headscarves can prove to be very versatile and practical yet fashionable. Try a few styles today and you will definitely be complimented for making a style statement.
