So for this scarf look, what we want to do is create something kind of like a sixties, Brigitte Bardot, kind of hair look to salvage a bad hair day.
We are going to tease the top. A quick way to do this is to just section it off, so you have nice little ponytail and we are just going to start teasing from the root of her fringe. When you tease, what you want to do is tease from the back as well as the front. It doesn't have to be pretty, just go for it. The only time you want to do the back teasing is when you have gotten to the hairline in the front. My favorite brush to use for one of these, actually for teasing, is boar bristles. The bristles are just nice and strong and will give you this intense volume.
So, I've just sprayed a little bit of hairspray into my brush and I'm just going to smooth out our little bouffant. I'm just twisting this top layer and then I am going to pin it in. I like to crisscross the pins so that they hold even better. Then you can secure it even more using another rubber band at the base.
So for this Brigitte Bardot-1960's hair look, I'm using a square scarf again (perfect for hiding that bad hair day). About a foot and a half per side and I am going to fold it in half into a triangle. You're just basically rolling the scarf into a headband. Tie the scarf at the base and once again over the ponytail.
Now, you are going to push the headband back. So now, we just take the tail of your brush and just lifting that puff even higher because I want a bit more drama, but you can do whatever you prefer. I just sprayed the tail of my brush and I'm going to use it to smooth away any flyways I have. This is our third scarf look. Voila -- no more bad hair.
