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!
So if you want to know how to tie a headscarf fashionably, we are hoping our designs below will inspire you.
Headscarfs have been a long tradition of my family (I am African and most moms growing up had some form of a headscarf mostly for protective styling and also as a fashion statement.)
So it was only a matter of time before I myself started learning how to wear a scarf in my hair.
For those that are thinking of wearing a scarf in your hair and have no idea where to start, this post is for you.
