What you will need: 

- a scarf, preferably a rectangular and long one

- some support, like a door knob to help with the braiding

How to:

  1. Fold the scarf in half, make a loose knot in the middle: you should get a loop with two ends of the scarf sticking out of the knot.
  2. Place the knot on top of the door knob: the two ends of the scarf and the loop are the three strands of your braid
  3. Braid the scarf. You should end up with one side braided, while the other is not braided.

Scarf as a hippie crown/headband (pinterest)

This hairstyle is great and looks very pretty if you have a bad hair day, if it is limp and does not want to cooperate! Start with brushed and loose hair.

Take a scarf that is the size of your head and twist it so as to get a sausage-like shape. If the scarf is too long for your head, you can fold it several times before twisting it or cut the excess (only if you are positive you won’t regret it afterwards!!).

Tie the ends in a knot. It is best not to have any fabric sticking out of the knot.

Place the crown on your head, slightly at the back of the head, as if you had a halo over it. On loose hair, the hippie chic style is at its best!

Little trick: if the scarf was too long and you cut it, you can take the scraps and braid them, twist them. . . to make a bracelet or even another headband!

The Olsen twins are the most famous twins on the planet. Discovered when they were still toddlers, Mary-Kate and Ashley are little fashion gurus and are now at the helm of an empire that is worth millions. Therefore it only seemed logical to talk about Ashley Olsen’s turban scarf in this post! This style looks as great as the Rihanna style we presented previously and will be perfect for this summer ;)

For this look you will need a small, rectangular scarf.

  1. Tie a knot in the middle of the scarf.
  2. Tie the ends together and place the headband on your head, above the forehead.

This look screams boho-chic. The leather jacket counterbalances the hippie vibe of the head scarf.

Look #2 : ethnic turban

For this look, you will need a big square scarf.

  1. Fold the scarf in a triangle and place it on your head.
  2. Twist the ends on one side of your head.
  3. Wrap the ends around the head and tie a knot.

You place the scarf so that the ends hang evenly on each side. Pull the scarf behind your ears too. Tie the scarf at the nape to secure it. Separate your hair into three sections.
