How to make a scarf into a headband
In the warm summer weather, scarves are often forgotten but they're actually the perfect summer accessory for lounging by the pool or running errands in the city. Not only is a headscarf a great way to add a pop of pattern and color to your summer outfit, it's also a great way to keep hairstyles in place for a breezy day at the beach.
How to tie a headscarf for summer
- A scarf made of lightweight material. Both square and rectangular scarves will work.
Time needed: 5 minutes or less
Step 1: Fold
Fold your square scarf diagonally to make a triangle. Then continue folding the scarf over until you've created a long, thin band. If you're using a rectangular scarf, you'll also want to make a thin band, but by folding the scarf lengthwise until you have a long strip.
Step 2: Wrap
Wrap the folded scarf around the back of your head, holding the ends out in front. Make sure you have it centered by checking that the ends come out to be the same length.
Step 3: Twist
Bring the ends together so they cross at the top of your head. Give it a twist so the 2 ends latch together and then wrap around toward the back of your head.
Step 4: Tie and tuck
Tie a single knot to secure and tuck the ends in. Voila! A perfectly tied headscarf and a fun, stylish look you can wear all summer long.
