Here are some looks I’ve been experimenting with! I hope the instructions are clear. If you have any questions, please let me know and I’ll do my best to answer or even make a video to show how I did these ties! 🙂
I used a square shimmery turquoise scarf and tied it with the second knot from the “beautiful basics” video… but I tucked the ends in instead of leaving them out. Then twisted a long beige scarf across my head and over the “bun” part, also tucking in the ends. Then I put a thin braided headband on and hid the elastic part underneath the beige scarf. VERY secure!
I figured that a rainy day needed some colour! So I took a square purple scarf and tied it with the first tie from the “beautiful basics” video. Then I took a long pink skinny scarf and wrapped it over my head, tied under, and then over the “bun” of my hair. I tied the ends (double knot!) and let the fringe hang over one side. Then on the opposite side of the fringe, I pinned in a flower. (If you attach the pin to both scarves it prevents any slipping throughout the day.)
It was cold outside and I didn’t want to wear a hat. I took a grey pashmina scarf and did the “regal wrap”. Except I left the first end NOT tucked into the back. Try it! Then I pinned in a flower giving it extra prettiness as well as security.
This one is basically the same as the last one, except I let the loose end be on the other side. The gorgeous gold leaf pin got me compliments all day!
I had always wondered how ladies get it to look like they have tons of hair underneath their scarves… I figured it out! For this look, I tied a “regal wrap” with a basic pashmina and both ends tucked in. Then I simply put this shiny long scarf over it (it’s a bit sheer, but it worked very well!) and tied the ends at the bottom. Added an antique-y flower pin and I was ready to attend my friend’s wedding!
This one is so simple! I tied my hair in a low bun, took a long rectangular scarf and placed it on my head with the ends hanging down evenly. Then I took the ends hear my face and stretched them back around my head, and pinned them with a flower pin so they would stay. Voila! I felt like I had long hair swishing around me and got many questions on how I did it. Now you know!
You can use a simple square scarf and braid it! Start doing the first tie in “beautiful basics”, but instead of tying a knot with the two ends, braid them into the cloth that is hanging over your head. Finish off with an elastic and you’re good to go!
