That's a Wrap!
Ever want to know how to tie up that cute summer head-scarf? Well I'm going to teach you!
I know you've seen (or if you're like me maybe even tried to tie) those gorgeous head wraps that you always see in the magazines and on celebrities. For some reason I have never been able to make scarves look good on me and it's beyond frustrating because I love the way they look on other people!! Well, I'm fed up! I've decided to make one final effort to take a stab at this super cool summer look. I found some great instructional pictorials on this website called Tasaram that not only has great instructions on how to tie scarves of all types but also has gorgeous Asian inspired silk scarves. So let's first take a look at a few of my inspirational pics for this look!
I LOVE LOVE everything about Nicole Ritchie (especially now that she's not a bag of bones anymore) and I especially love her style. One of her favorite summer accessories is a head scarf.....
Throw any fun scarf on with a pair of big sunglasses and you can have his California-chic look too!
In addition to the head-band type scarf wrap there is also the turban wrap which is one of my favorite summer looks. The big plus is you can get use out of your scarves all year round!
If anyone can pull off a shabby-chic look it's definitely the Olsen twins. This look isn't for everyone but if done right it can look super cute!
My personal opinion is that if SJP can pull something like this off almost anyone can pull it off!
Celebrities love their head scarves and you will too just as soon as you learn how to tie them!
So here are a few pictograms teaching you how to tie each different type of head wrap. Again they come from the Tasaram website....maybe you can find a few cute scarves on there to tie up!
BOHEMIAN HEAD WRAP
Fold the scarf diagonally and bring flat edge to the front of the forhead. Bring the pointed edges around to the back and tie them over top of the scarf tail hanging down in the back.
Fold the scarf on the bias. Start by folding the outer corners into the center and then keep folding into the center until you have the desired width for your ponytail wrap. Next secure the hair with a rubberband and then tie the scarf around and secure with a knot.
This is a fun way to accessorise your hat and something new I've never seen before! Fold the scarf diagonally and mold the scarf around the hat so the ends come together in the back. Tie the two ends in a knot over the scarf tail and viola!
Fold the scarf on the bias. Start by folding the outer corners into the center and then keep folding into the center until you have the desired width for your headband. Wrap the scarf under your hair and secure it behind your head at the nape of your neck with a knot.
Fold the scarf diagonally and bring flat edge to the front of the forhead. Tie the ends of the scarf in a single knot then rotate the scarf back around so the knot is at your forhead. Tie the ends in a square knot (see below) and then tuck the excess fabric into the sides of the wrap.
Have fun trying all these different head wraps!!
