How To: Headscarf
Headscarves have been a staple in fashion for decades, and it’s easy to see why. They protect hair, cover a variety of styling sins, look chic and are a great alternative to a hat.
One can create numerous styles with a single scarf: turban, bohemian, retro, rocker. Find your favorite look and add some flavor to your next ensemble.
Tying a headscarf requires practice and patience – it never seems to go right the first time. Follow these great diagrams to find your favorite style:
- Headband Style – A simple style that can look sweet or bold. Fold square diagonally into a triangle. Roll scarf from long edge of triangle end towards the tip of the triangle so it becomes a long thick rectangular band. Flip hair upside and place center of band at forehead. Tie a square knot under hair at the top of the neck. Pull long edges of scarf from back of neck to hang in front. Vary the thickness and placement of the band for different looks.
- Retro Style – A glamorous style paired with big sunglasses. Fold square diagonally into a triangle. Place center of long edge of triangle just above hairline. Cross the ends of the scarf under chin. Bring ends around to back of neck loosely and tie together.
- Bohemian Style – Channel your inner-gypsy and pair with big voluminous beach hair. Fold square diagonally into a triangle. Place center of long edge of triangle at middle of forehead. Bring edges of triangle around to back tightly and tie.
Quick Fix: Psssssst Instant Spray Shampoo
Psssssst… Its no secret, dry shampoo is the solution to every lazy girl’s bad-hair day. There are so many different brands to choose from and I have tried most.
Clariol Psssssst Instant Spray Shampoo is the original dry shampoo and in my opinion works the best at half the cost. The vintage-style packaging has no fancy bells or whistles. Simply spray on roots to absorb excess oil and odor. I use mainly to boost volume at the roots and this product achieves just that. This spray shampoo transforms my dull dirty hair without washing.
Tip: Use with caution on dark hair (powder is white) and be careful not to spray too much in one area.
