How to braid a scarf ?

We hope you liked our previous post about the necklace made out of a scarf because we are going to reiterate the experience. Today’s post is a tutorial to learn how to braid a scarf. In three simple steps, and in less than five minutes, your scarf will get a new look. All it takes is one scarf, no more!


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.

How to wear a headscarf in a headband or crown?

Well, in this post we are going to show you how to wear a scarf as a headband or a crown, for a hippie inspired hairstyle. Whether you have short hair or long hair, straight or curly hair, this post is for every girl! How cool is that? So if you want a cool, chic, laidback hairstyle that suits every style, keep reading!


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!
