How to wear a scarf in your hair fashionably

They are so many amazing ways to wear a scarf in your hair, and I am so excited to share my top finds today. 

I am in Canada and over the last few days, we have had heatwaves one after the other like nothing before. 

And my natural styled hair is not taking it too well.

So I decided to do some single braids (not too heavy), to try to manage it and keep it protected.

But the heat at the moment is just so unbearable. 

Wearing my hair in a top ponytail away from the neck area wasn’t cutting it any longer. 

I figured that adding some cool accessories wouldn’t hurt. 

But wearing my hair with headbands, hair ties and other accessories was getting way overdone. 

So I went on Pinterest, my go-to place for inspiration, and I found some really great ways to wear a scarf in my hair!
