Head scarves are very definitive of bohemian attire. They create a very cool and laid back look that can be worn anytime of the year, to almost any event. The best part, however, is that you have an endless choice of scarves as well as endless ways to tie them. Here are just a few ways in which you could wear a head scarf.
- Make a bow at the front
Take a scarf and fold it, keeping the width thick. Wrap this around your head and bring back the loose ends at the front to tie a bow. Make sure that the bow is not too elaborate or you will end up looking cute instead of sexy and glamorous.
- Roll up
Take a thin scarf of medium length and roll it until the scarf looks more like a thick rope. You can then tie this around your head in a single or double layer to create an unconventional and sexy look. This will look best with a neat hairstyle such as a clean bun or a slick back. To make a bold statement, go for bold colors such as bright red, teal, orange or aquamarine. This way, you can also play up your make-up without making the look too exaggerated.
- Wear it low over the headband
Take a broad scarf and tie a thick band, low over your forehead. This will look best with casual free flowing outfits and a rugged boho look. This will give a hippie touch to your look. Complete the look with bright lips and a pair of reflectors and the stage is all yours.
- Wear it as a turban
This style is best if you are attending a formal event. Take a scarf that stays in theme with your outfit and wrap it into a turban. This will keep the hair from falling over your face unnecessarily and will also add a certain degree of importance to your look.
- Wear it as a winter headband
If the weather is really cool outside, take a scarf with thick fabric and a neutral shade such as cream, gray, ochre etc. You can make a thick wrap around your head, also covering the ears. This will look great and also do a great job of keeping you warm.
- Braid it
Take a thin scarf of relatively thin material such as chiffon. Wrap it around your head and braid the remaining portion. Then use this braid to secure the headband in place. This will work great for feminine styles.
- Keep it effortless
To add an effortless, boho glam to your outfit, take a long scarf and wrap it around your head in a single turn. Then tie it at the back and let the ends fall freely. You can also bring the free ends to the front.
- Make a bun
Wear your hair in a high bun and tie the scarf around the bun. Keep the look bold by choosing deep colors such as ruby, mauve, deep red or chocolate brown. This unconventional way of wearing the scarf will make you look very cool and outstanding.
