On day three of your roadtrip, more than likely you’re experiencing some product build-up and frizz. If a shower is nowhere in sight, or you’re cool with roughing it, a stylish scarf is an easy solution! While headscarves can be styled in a multitude of ways, I prefer to wear my scarves in a turban-inspired headband. Even better? Whether your hair is short or long, straight or curly, or somewhere in between, this look can be rocked by everyone.
For this look you’ll need: A large square or rectangular scarf (it should be long enough to wrap around your head twice, a non-satiny silk or cotton scarf works best), bobby pins.
1. Part your hair in the middle, so that it frames your face evenly. If you have hair that frequently gets in your eyes, pin the front sections back with your bobby pins.
2. Take your square scarf and fold it in half, corner to corner to make a triangle. Fold it one more time, so it’s long and thin.
3. Place the scarf behind your head, angled towards your face.
4. Tie scarf in a half-knot at the very edge of your hairline, at the top of your forehead.
5. Next, take one of the scarf’s ends and place it up and back over your head, carefully tucking the end beneath the scarf at the back of your head. You may have to spread the fabric out a bit for more coverage.
6. Repeat step 5 with the opposite end of the scarf.
7. Carefully adjust each end so your whole head is covered.
Done! No one’s the wiser that you’ve been on the road for days!
