Learn how to incorporate this season’s must-have accessory into your look.
You may have noticed all of the stylish blogger girls on Instagram lately have been sharing photos of themselves rocking headscarves in their hair. You know the ones, those girls with their hair always perfectly styled and effortlessly tied with a statement scarf (Bitter? Us? Never…).
They’re fast becoming one of the summer’s biggest hair trends, so you’ll be looking for some inspiration to know how to rock these hair accessories best, right? Maybe you’ve even picked yourself up one already but don’t know how to tie it?
We can help. Read on to discover 4 ways to knot your newest accessory for the ultimate summer hairstyles.
How to wear a headscarf: 4 ways
1. Wrapped ponytail
Ponytails may be a simple style but with so many ways to customise a basic pony, they needn’t be boring. Take inspiration from the look above and update your pony by simply wrapping your scarf around the lengths of your ponytail, leaving a little hair loose at the bottom.
With so much going on, keeping your ponytail low will make sure it stays looking modern.
Beauty notes: Forever dealing with frizz? Keep your pony sleek by applying an oil or serum beforehand. The TONI&GUY Shine Gloss Serum works to slick down any flyaway strands, keeping your style neat, while also adding a glossy look to the hair.
2. Half-up bun
The half up bun – or ‘hun’ as we like to call it – is one of our favourite summer styles and believe it or not, it’s just got even better. Wrapping a patterned scarf around your bun adds a pop of colour to the look and with so many different patterns and designs to try, obviously we’re taking this as an excuse to buy all the scarves!
3. Messy bun
Messy buns hide a multitude of sins but just because they’re functional doesn’t mean they can’t look pretty at the same time. Give your old faithful a summer makeover by wrapping your scarf around your bun and tying into a bow at the top of your head.
Remember to pull a few tendrils or wisps of hair around your face- this will give off that “oh, this old thing?” vibe.
Beauty notes: This style is an excellent one for those days when you need to wash your hair but just don’t have the time. All you need to do is refresh your roots with an oil-absorbing dry shampoo like the TRESemmé Instant Refresh Cleansing Dry Shampoo to soak up any grease, then you’re good for at least another day.
4. Hippie headband
All about the bohemian festival feels? If you like to keep it minimal when it comes to your mane, this hippie hairstyle is made for you. This one really is a case of simply folding your headscarf into your chosen thickness (you can experiment with thicker or thinner band styles to create different looks) and wrapping it across your forehead.
Just in case you needed any more convincing to try the head scarf trend, this style literally takes seconds and if anything, the messier the better.
