1 PLAY PEEK A BOO
Let the traces flow along with the fluidity of that silken fabric. The more colourful the fabric the better. Style your hair into a half or a low pony, a braided half pony or a twisted half knot. Use an elastic band to secure the tie-up.
Works best with a wavy, natural curvy texture of mid-length hair: curling tongs to the rescue for straight ones.
2BEYOND THE BASIC BUN
To keep the strands away from the face we can use a scarf as a headband when a high bun is tied at the top. A style meant for the busy mid-workday. Or use it at the base of the bun to hold it in place.
While working with fingers will give a messy boho look, use the comb if you need a neat bun.
3COVER IT ALL
Square scarves folded in a triangle, to be used as a bandana. Highly recommended when venturing out in the sun and dust. Cover just the head with the traces flowing free, or make a full head wrap with a tuck on top. Or one can just wrap it all up and under.
The Cover up for a bad hair day. Get a day off when you are just too tired for that much-needed hair wash!
4ADD TO THE PONY & PLAIT
Add colours and patterns to that pony. Ditch the regular scrunchie and knot a scarf to keep it all together. Bringing the ends to the front or letting them flow behind are both equally popular and elegant.

5PLAIT IT LIKE A PRO
Using a scarf length as one strand of a braid gives rather surprising results. A braid adds a feminine twist to any hairdo and a scarf is as womanly as it gets. Whether it’s a side braid, a braided bun or one low braid at the back of your head, weave a scarf in to lace it with magic.
Also, a great way to add volume to your braid or coordinate it with any outfit.
6AN ICONIC LOOK
Probably one of the most idealist scarfs identified with American feminism is this polka dotted one on Rosie The Riveter. Surfaced during WW2, this hairdo resonated with women working in factories the world over and has been symbolic of women empowerment ever since.
It’s a rather easy up-do; roll up the scarf, place the center at the back of the head and tie the tips in a knot to look like a bow.
7Tie THAT KNOT
A variety of knots can be tried to add to the glam of any scarf up-dos. Knots may be placed at the side, on the top or at the base. Make a tinier knot for a more restrained look and practice the flamboyant bow-like one for the fun times.
