The Art of the Headscarf
The headscarf has come a long way from the days of the hippie. These days, the ways in which women can wear these accessories are almost as varied as any hairstyle. Whether you are covering your real human hair wig for religious reasons, or are simply drawn the fun and easy look it offers, the head scarf is the perfect way to inject a little personality into your hairstyle. When choosing a headscarf, know what style you are aiming for. Certain styles require scarves that are long and narrow, others need a wider piece of material to work properly. Not sure what scarf style you need? There are countless online videos that will walk you through the process step by step. Simply type “tying a hair scarf” into YouTube and be prepared for hundreds of tutorials. For the purposes of this post, we will focus on the easiest headscarf style out there, the plait. For this style, you are essentially working your scarf through an average braid, and you will need a long hair wig for women to pull this off. Choose a long and narrow scarf in a bright color that will accent your outfit. Wrap the scarf around the crown of your head until the ends meet in the back. Then use these ends to add to your braid. Include one side in each section of hair as you go about the braiding. The result will be a fun look that is incredibly easy to create!
