How to tie a hair scarf for short hair

Short hair is amazing but it can sometimes be a pain to style. I’ve been borrowing my bff’s styling wax recently to keep my pixie in shape, but there are some days when it just refuses to be tamed and that’s when I bring out the hair scarves. 

Today I’m sharing a step by step tutorial on how to tie a hair scarf for short hair. This is one of the easiest ways to wear a scarf if you’re looking to keep the top of your hair covered. Since my hair is super thick and wavy, it likes to stick up at the top, especially on those bad hair days! This is my preferred scarf tying style to keep everything all neat and tucked in when I don’t have enough time or just can’t be bothered with doing my hair. 

Using a square scarf, fold it into a triangle.

Place the scarf on top of you head with one end of the triangle sticking over your face. The shorter this bit is, the easier it will be for you to tuck in the scarf later on. 

Pull the two other ends over your ears and on top of your head.

Tie the ends together in a double knot over the bit sticking out in front of your face. Fluff the scarf a little over your head so that it looks natural and not too tight!

Now, double those two ends behind your head and knot them again at the nape of your neck. This knot shouldn’t be too tight, otherwise it’ll start travelling up the back of your head after a while! Tuck the stray ends under the scarf and secure them with a bobby pin. 

Finally, roll up the end dangling at the front and tuck it under the knot. And that’s it, you’re done! Takes all of two minutes and you’re good to shimmy out of the door. 

I hope you all enjoyed this tutorial! I’ve put together a little selection of square scarves below, and a composite image for pinning.

The Turban: from runway to real world..

How-to take the Spring 2012 trend and wear it around town! Very quick and easy. Plus, it can help you save a day from shampooing.

This is how we do it.

It’s time to get serious.

Give me some kind of phrack revolution.  I need more MFMM. There’s only so many times I can watch that gif of her dressed in gold with the giant flower / feather thing on her head and Jack all suave with his i know all this shit about biology voice without it becoming some kind of torture. 

Not to mention the neck touch, the phrack kiss, the more than anything line, the tie scene, the scarf scene, the I got drunk last night and passed out in Phryne’s bed scene, the unsung hero scene, the not eating Italian tonight Jack scene, the awkward conversation over a dead body at the morgue while they discuss vibrators, the spider under the diaphragm scene, the I passed out from Foyle so you’ll have to carry me scene, the fan dance, the mouth on boob moment, the true love must never be denied moment, the long phracking date in Queenscliff, the you win the bet but lets go on a date to Luna Park scene, the dress on the stairs moment, the I will use this scarf to lure you in scene, the phrack I thought you died in a car accident so here is an entire episode of torture moment, the aren’t we more of a tango thing, the weird moment when she chains up a “slave”, has sex with him and then runs down the stairs all fresh with the dreams line, the hat moment after the weird sex in the wine bucket, the singing at the piano, see above for tie scene and mistletoe torture and….I think that covers it, unless we head back two seasons and list all the moments in season one.  Which in that case….

The who the phrack are you moment in Lydia Andrews bathroom, the oh look I found us a child on a train moment, the I’m going to take mug shots under the illusion of arresting you but really I just want photos of you moment, the I found out more things about you and I like it moment, the I keep a knife tucked into my upper thigh but pretend you didn’t see it moment, the oh you have hot lover who imports silk but I’ll pretend I’m not jealous moment, the here is my naked body on a canvas moment, the you kissed me moment, the I saved your adopted daughter from a roof top while risking my own life moment, the did you just get electrocuted by a giant factory machine moment, the I’m not dressing up as Antony but that doesn’t mean I don’t want you moment, and see above for the Foyle moment.
