Step 1: With your hair pulled up into a top bun that is off to one side (this will give the finished look asymmetry and height) fold a rectangle scarf in half on a diagonal to form a long triangle. This is the scarf we used!

Step 2: Place the base of the triangle at the back of your head. Then, take the two longest points of the triangle and bring them around the the front, tying them in a knot on top of your head.
