Head wraps and scarves and tied bandanas are on such a hot wave right now, turning your most simplistic outfit and boring hair into “too cute” with one tie.


To get the look fold a brightly coloured square scarf (minimum 70x70cm) into a triangle. Starting with the tip of the triangle, fold the tip and 10cm of the fabric down so the scarf is in the shape of a trapezium. Continue folding the scarf until you have a long, narrow band.

Place the centre of the scarf at the nape of the neck and bring both ends to the top of the head. Holding both ends with one hand, pin the scarf in place behind both ears using contoured bobby pins the same colour as your hair.

Once pinned, cross the ends of the scarf over and wind them back to the nape of the neck. For smaller scarves, tightly double knot the ends then tuck them under the headscarf. For larger scarves, bring then ends back to the forehead then knot and tuck.


On top of being a grade-A cool, a head wrap can make you polished and can hide the worst hair days, including frizz created by the humidity of spring and summer.


Equally perfect for the beach or the bar, this season is a great time to tie one on and head to the party.
