Sarah’s Scarf Solution for Second-Day Hair


I’m getting married this Saturday (HOORAY!), and for the past year leading up to this weekend, I’ve undergone the painstaking task of trying to grow out my hair. Easier said than done!

To help my hair grow faster for the big day, I’ve cut back to every-other-day washings.

But you know how it is. Hair just isn’t the same on a day when it isn’t washed! Luckily, I came up with a favorite solution to mask my second-day hair — and you know it involves a head scarf! Read on to learn how to get this sweet ‘do!

What you need:

a teasing comb, two hair ties, a few bobby pins, and a square scarf.

How to get the look:

  1. Brush your hair out.
  2. Use a comb to tease up your hair at the crown. Pin the top layer back Snooki-style (but not as big!!).
  3. Divide the bottom of your hair into two sections, one on top of the other, like in the photo.
  4. Twist the top section. As you twist, coil it around so it makes a small bun. Secure the bun with a tie, and if it’s flopping down, pin it flat to your head with a bobby pin.
  5. Twist the bottom section, again coiling it into a small bun. It should be resting directly underneath your top bun. Secure it with a hair tie and a bobby pin.
  6. Fold your scarf in a triangle, and then fold it again to the desired width.
  7. Place it at the front of your hairline. I think it looks best if it stops right before your teased crown line.
  8. Tie it at the nape of your neck with a double knot.

Have you fallen in love the the scarf shown in the photos? It’s this adorable heart scarf!
