Gorgeous New Scarf Trick!

My sis-in-law Naomi (remember her as a Lady Wrap Star?) posted this super cool wrapping style she created yesterday, and I just HAD to try it!  I wanted an simple around-the-house-doing-work style for today, and this one is as easy as she makes it sound… and guess what – I’m not wearing a shaper/volumizer!  Just a scrunchy!

Here are her instructions on how to do it!
Take one long, lightweight rectangle. Tie at the nape of the neck (ends hanging at equal length. Tie a series of 4 single loose knots with the ends. Wrap up and over the bun. Takes two minutes, looks so complicated!!
Just make sure you use a really long scarf so that even after the knots you still have long enough ends to go all the way over the bun and tuck in.  For a shorter scarf maybe 3 knots would be better 🙂

Thanks Naomi for the inspiration!!  Here is a shot of her wearing it (with a longer scarf so therefore tighter knots and a shaper/volumizer underneath.)  See how tiny little “details” change the whole look?  Imagine with a sparkly scarf – it could even be formal wear!

    Wow! It looks as if the tails are twisted around eachother. I am guna try this thanks for the creation! 🙂


  2. I’ve seen this technique as part of a ends-to-the-front turban style, and it didn’t work for me at all. I’m definitely going to have to try it over a bun instead- especially with tight knots, it’s a great detail. I love when people find ways to make techniques work that I’ve seen and not figured out!

      I’m in the same boat. The ends-to-the front wraps only work, in my opinion, on women with a few specific face shapes (or who are just really fashion-forward and have a lot of confidence!) I thought putting the ‘action’ back by the bun would make it a more accessible look 🙂

    Oh, I like the video! You did a good job! And I love the scarves you chose to use! The finished look is elegant!

    Hi Andrea. I was wondering. Can you post more outfits with your head wraps? You and I have the same style, but I just didn’t know how to put it all together. You REALLY have given me a lot of ideas. I’ve been enjoying getting dressed in the morning. Thank you so much.

    I have basically the same scarf Naomi is wearing— but in pink! My uncle brought it for me from Israel! Can’t wait to try it with this style!
