How to Style Headscarves

Headscarves have been taking the fashion world by storm. It’s the perfect accessory to tie together a look. Finally, there’s a precise way to style scarves around the hair. Unfortunately, many silk headscarves don’t have enough grit to stay in place throughout the day, so they need a little extra help from products and bobby pins. Read through the blog below to discover the top trending ways to style headscarves. 

The Top Knot

Prep the hair with a light misting of hairspray like Alfaparf’s Style Stories Original to add texture and avoid slippage. 

  1. Fold the scarf into a triangle. 
  2. Then, roll the scarf over until it vaguely resembles a long rectangle. 
  3. Then, wrap the ends around the back of the head, and tie the ends together at the crown of the head. 

The Pony Tie 

  1. Pull the hair into a ponytail. If you have thinner hair and would like to create a fuller look, apply a couple of spritzes of ColorProof’s Texture Charge Color Protect Texture+Finishing Spray
  2. Tie scarf similarly the same way for the top knot style. 
  3. Then, once you have the long rectangle, wrap it around the hair tie. 
  4. Scritch the hair at the crown of the hair to create more volume, allowing pieces of hair to fall. This frames the face and gives a look a dreamy feeling. 

The Bandanna

  1. Fold the scarf in half and roll it about two times until it resembles a triangle and a long rectangle. 
  2. Then, tie it behind the head under the hair. It’s natural to have excess scarf, and this helps frame the look. 
  3. To keep the scarf from slipping, apply some texturizer paste-like Living Proof’s Style AMP2 INSTANT TEXTURE VOLUMIZER or lightly mist the inside of the scarf with hairspray to lock it in place. 

And You can put it in a bun.

  1. Put the hair in a high bun, creating volume with KEVIN.MURPHY’s PUFF.POWDER. 
  2. Then, wrap the scarf around the top knot. 
  3. Twist it at the front and keep wrapping it around the bun until it’s secure. 
  4. If you’d like, you can also add a little shine with the U:DRY FRESH Dry Conditioner
