Hair scarves are a fabulous way to boost your hair game to the next level. I personally don’t wear many hair scarves, but will definitely try to incorporate these ‘dos more often into my daily routine, ESPECIALLY after I realized how easy these tutorials are. The best part is you technically don’t even need a hair scarf; you can use any scarf you own as long as it isn’t too thick and has enough length to wrap around your head.
These tutorials show how you can wear the same hair scarf in three variations. Keep it super simple and stop at the first down & natural ‘do or follow the rest of the steps all the way through to the twisted chignon!
• Teasing brush
• Bobby pins
• 2 1/2″ curling wand
DOWN & NATURAL
1. Use a 2 1/2″ curling wand to add a few beach waves.
2. Back comb the crown area for extra height using a teasing brush.
3. Take your scarf of choice and fold it like an accordion. Fold everything in so the point of the triangle is the part that will be against your head.
4. Flip your head over while holding the two ends of the scarf and tie. You can end tying it however you choose: to the side, in the middle… loose knots are fun too-just make sure to tuck the ends. We went with a off-centered bow!

HALF UP / HALF DOWN
5. Once the scarf is tied how you want it, take the crown and spray the back teased hair. Smooth with your teasing brush.
6. Twist a little bit at the bottom. Take a bobby pin and pin.
I really love the way you can see the layers of waves with the hair half up.
7. Continuing from the half up / half down look, take the bottom section of hair, divide into two and twist clockwise.
8. Twist the two pieces into a low chignon and pin. Anchor any loose hairs with your bobby pins. You can’t mess up how you pin or where you pin; it’s just preference at this point. Depending on how much hair you have will depend on how many pins you need.
Which of these three are your favorites? I think the twisted chignon looks pretty cool! Now I need to get some fun hair scarves to experiment with!
