I‘ve seen many women wear a head scarf and I often wondered how they’re able to rock the wrapped up look. Just looking at it makes me break out in sweat. It looks too hot for me to bear but they look so fabulous!
I have a friend who can pull off the Alicia Keys turban and I am always dying of envy. My face is pretty round so you can only imagine how awful I would look with a fully wrapped turban on my head.
But, regardless of how I would look, here are a some of the best ways you can rock a head scarf this summer. Unlike me, some of us can actually look good with a head scarf on.
Ways to Wear a Head Scarf
Wearing a head scarf is perfect to hide messy hair. Some women are tired of the bland looking ponytail or messy bun. You can make it look new with a scarf perfectly tied around your head.
Woven Braid Knot
This style does not only involve tying but braiding as well. It’s dual purpose: style and keeping your hair secure and neat. Any colored head scarf would do!
I love how this style is perfect for those tiny loose baby hairs on the back of your head. The style can completely keep those cute but annoying baby hairs in place for the rest of the day. The fringe works really well with the head scarf knot as well.
Low Ponytail Scarf
A pop of color on a monochrome colored look is perfect to balance the entire outfit or set a focal point. The head scarf will be the perfect accessory if you want your face to be the focal point.
Have you ever seen Eddie Murphy’s movie Coming to America? His mom wore a head scarf tied just like this and she really looked like royalty. It may not have the same effect without all the gold dangling around her but this still makes a pretty solid look.
Alicia Keys Turban
Alicia Keys has been rocking the no-makeup look and she became even more of an icon with her signature turban. Many women were inspired by her au-naturale look on the red carpet and it has trended since! Look around you. Many women are sporting this head scarf turban.
Summer will be very hot so it’s a plus if you can look great and keep all your hair away from your sticky body. A wrapped up turban will do just the trick. You’ll be comfortable and looking fab at the same time!
Summer concerts are sure to be a thing this incoming season. You may want to wear your hair down but not look overly glammed up. Try a knotted headband with you favorite head scarf to get that perfect retro boho look this summer!
Ultimate Head Wrap
One of the things I really like about head scarves is its ability to hide messed up hair. For example, if you woke up too late and have so many errands to run, you can pull your hair in a bun and add a head scarf to make it look like you had all the time in the morning to prep yourself. It won’t hide the smell so pray no one taller hugs you!
Twist Tie Top Knot
This is perfect for women with thin hair and want their bun to look fuller. The scarf adds an illusion to the volume and makes the bun look bigger and fuller. There’s a hack for you. You’re welcome!
30 Second Headband
For your last minute hair decisions before going out, this would be the perfect go-to. It takes less than a minute and super edgy. Yes, a turban can be very chic!
Now, here’s one for the bow type of girl. It’s feminine and dainty and still very capable of keeping every hair in place. What more can you ask for, right?
Are you ready to give these styles a go?
Get your favorite head scarf and start practicing! Pretty soon you’ll be a master at tying head scarves. Then, you can teach your girlfriends the basics!
Be fab and keep your hair in place with a different head scarf style everyday. Oh, expect your wardrobe to grow more with scarves!
