Going to the beach and looking for some coverage for your waves? A head wrap is a great way to cover up and protect your hair, to rehydrate your curls while you deep condition or if you just need to run a quick errand. As you have always heard, satin is the best for curls, (if you have not heard the word, satin is kind to curls) especially if you are looking for the benefits of wrapping your hair in a scarf.
- Fold the scarf in half diagonally touching corner to corner.
- Fold the bottom half of the scarf horizontally at the width you would like to show off on top of your head. You will want a wider base at the top of your head so that it will cover your head.
- Position the scarf to cover your forehead or just to cover a portion, position on the crown of the head. Take the two ends of the scarf and bring them towards the back of your head. Secure with a knot and you can let the ends flow freely or tie into a bun.
- Last and definitely not the least part of the trend is to tie an accent knot into your scarves. You can secure with a regular knot, a bun, a rose tie or my favorite a Hermes knot.
For a regular bun, put the two ends to the scarf together and twist them as if you were twisting around your curls and as you are twisting, wrap the scarf ends in a circular motion. For a seamless bun, tuck the ends into the bun or underneath the back of the scarf. For a rose tie, simply follow the steps above and once you tuck in the ends into the scarf, gently pull the ends to create a “rose effect”. For a Hermes knot, twist the two ends separately in the front and bring the ends to the back where you will tie a knot.
