Replace ordinary bands with a scarf when you ponytail your hair for a more stylish look. Tie your hair into a ponytail. Gather a scarf at the center and tie it over the ponytail covering the band and let loose the ends of the scarf. You can also twist the ends of the scarf around the loose hair of the ponytail.

Look bohemian with this style. First, tie your hair into a ponytail. Fold a scarf into a triangle and place the widest edge of the scarf on your forehead, just above your eyebrows. Put the ends at the back of your head just under your ponytail and knot them together. Let your hair loose. You can also try this method even with your hair down. Just tuck other loose ends of the scarf under the knot at the back of your head and let all the ends of the scarf loose.

This style is elegant looking. It is named as such because the scarf actually forms into a crown over the head. All you need is an oblong or rectangular scarf. Drape the scarf over your head and hand the ends down the body with one end longer than the other. Meet the two ends at the nape and cross them just behind your head. Now twist the longer end so that it will look like a rope. Then lay the twisted end at the top of the head approximately 1-2 inches from the front edge of the scarf.

Head Scarf Tying Techniques

Woman with headscarf always look so beautiful and I have always wanted to know how to tie one so that I can wear it and look fashionable.
Most hairstyles work best with a silk, or other very thin material, square scarf that is between 24″ and 36″ on each side. Here are my favorite head scarf tying techniques:

* Low Bun Wrap – adds glamour to a simple hairstyle. Start with hair pulled back into a low ponytail. Fold square diagonally into a triangle. Place center of long edge of triangle at hairline. Bring edges of triangle around to back tightly and tie under ponytail. Twist ponytail and tied ends of scarf together and wrap around into a tight bun. Tuck edges of hair and scarf under bun.

* Headband
– simple and adds color to a down or updo. Fold square diagonally into a triangle. Roll scarf from long edge of triangle end towards the tip of the triangle so it becomes a long thick rectangular band. Flip hair upside and place center of band at forehead. Tie a square knot under hair at the top of the neck. Flip hair back and flatten around band. Pull long edges of scarf from back of neck to hang in front. You can vary the thickness of the band for different looks.

* Hollywood – glamorous paired with sunglasses. Fold square diagonally into a triangle. Place center of long edge of triangle just above hairline. Cross the ends of the scarf under chin. Bring ends around to back of neck loosely and tie together.

* Head Wrap – best with voluminous beach hair. Fold square diagonally into a triangle. Place center of long edge of triangle at middle of forehead. Bring edges of triangle around to back tightly and tie together on top of point of scarf.
