7 Cool-Girl Ways to Wear Hair Scarves

Learn how you can easily transform a classic hair scarf into a one-of-a-kind statement piece

Every cool girl should know how to use hair scarves in multiple ways. After all, these stylish accessories allow you to achieve a range of looks that aren't otherwise possible. From vintage head wraps to stunning braided configurations, you can experiment with an almost-endless array of looks to complement your unique sense of style. Head scarves are such standard hair accessories that it can be frustrating to try to wear one and realize that you don't know how to integrate it into your look. Below are some fun ways to wear head scarves.

Simple Vintage

Perhaps no head scarf style is easier than simply tying it around your ponytail. There are some rules to be aware of, however. This style only looks cohesive if you commit to the retro look. You need to brush your hair straight back with tendrils hanging loose, and the ponytail should rest squarely on the top of your head. It's a severe look, which is where the scarf comes in. Tie it around the rubber band with the knot facing upward.

If you want a looser, softer version of the previous style, try placing your ponytail very low and off to one side, practically under your ear. Tie your head scarf around the hair tie and let the ends fall in with your hair. When you wear this kind of ponytail, you can keep your hair parted and let your bangs or wispy strands frame your face.

Headband Hack

This is perhaps the most utilitarian way to use hair scarves: Roll one up a bit, drape it over your hair, and allow it to flatten itself against your head. Tie it tightly at the nape of your neck. You may want to add some bobby pins underneath your hair for added security.

Beautiful Braid

You don't have to rely on hair scarves only for securing your hairstyle; you can also use them to add visual interest to your look. Pull your hair into a ponytail and tuck the end of your scarf under the rubber band. Then braid your hair, integrating the scarf into one of the three sections. This style works best with a brightly patterned scarf.

Fashion editorials regularly take inspiration from dancers, and now you can too. Pin your hair up in a neat bun and loop a very long scarf around it, knotting it under the bun. Let the ends of the scarf dangle down your back.

Here's a style for when you don't have the time or energy for a real style: Leave your hair down and tie your scarf horizontally around your head, knotting it at the side. This is a great option if you're rocking second-day hair or you just want to keep it out of the way.

This one takes a bit more effort, but the finished result is worth it. Put your hair up in your favorite updo, the bigger the better. Leave your bangs or some loose curls hanging down. Loop your scarf under your hairstyle and tie it on top, placing the knot over to one side.
