Some of the hairstyles presented in this article can be done whether you have long or short hair, others on the other hand, are achievable only with long hair.

There are many ways to tie a scarf, whether you have curly hair or very straight and relaxed hair.

There is inevitably a style or a hairstyle made for you, for which your scarves or turbans will be very well highlighted, especially if they are associated with dresses and bandanas adapted for the summer or with jackets and hats for the winter.

Scarf: 10 trendy & easy hairstyles!

1. Bohemian hairstyle

Very simple to achieve: just place the scarf to cover your head and tie it in the front, at the level of your chin.

2. Ponytail with scarf

The low ponytail with scarf has to be one of the oldest hairstyles ever!

It's gorgeous and incredibly easy to do. What you need:

  • Curling or straightening iron
  • Elastic band
  • Scarf

How to do it:

  • Style your hair with a curling or straightening iron to add volume and texture.
  • Using your fingers, brush your hair into a low ponytail and secure it with an elastic band.
  • Next, wrap your scarf in a long strip. Place the center of the scarf under the base of the ponytail.
  • Then lift the ends of the scarf and loop them to opposite sides, wrapping them around the base of the ponytail.
  • Make several turns before tying a simple knot at the top.


3. Headband style with fringe

Original and elegant: simply pull the scarf over the back of your head and tie it at the top, like a headband, leaving a strand of hair in the front to make a fringe.

4. Braided mat

More technical but very pretty: fold the scarf into a fairly thin strip (leave the thickness you want depending on your taste) and place it on top of your head, about in the middle.

Then braid the two ends of the scarf with your hair, intertwining them.


5. Vintage headband

Place the scarf at the back of your head, under your hair, and bring the ends to the front, at the forehead in a slight offset, to tie with a voluminous knot to give a little vintage style.

6. Headband hairstyle

Quite similar to the style 3 in the realization, except that this time you will comb the whole of your hair back, and will then come to tie the scarf on the top of your head (by passing it beforehand under your hair at the back of your skull), to maintain them as a headband.

7. Exotic headband

Start by placing the scarf at the back of your head, under your hair, and tie it in a simple knot at the front of your head, at the level of your forehead, just to hold it in place for the following steps.

Then stretch/unfold the back of the scarf (located at the back of your head) to cover the back and one side of your hairstyle (you may or may not cover your ear), while styling your hair to the opposite side.

Then grab the two ends of the scarf that are sticking out (at the single knot you made earlier), and bring them to the back of your head to tie and stabilize them.

Then adjust your hair and scarf to your liking!

8. Bun

Very versatile, this is a perfect style for work, parties and staying comfortable at home.

Adding a scarf to a bun only makes it look classier. What you need for this style:

  • A scrunchie/elastic band
  • A scarf

Method: If you want a neat bun, brush your hair with a comb, and gather your hair into a medium ponytail. Then wrap your hair into a bun and secure it with an elastic band.

Then tie the scarf at the base of the knot to cover the elastic.

If you want a messy look, gather your hair into a high ponytail. Pull the elastic through the ponytail once. Twist the elastic and pull your hair halfway through, letting the ends hang down. Hold the knot from the top up and tie the scarf around its base to secure it.

9. Turban

Comb through your hair to remove any tangles and knots.

Lay the scarf on a table and carefully fold it into a long, wide strip. Place the scarf along the back of your head (over the hair this time) and pull the ends upward.

Then, simply knot both ends on top of your head and pull them under the scarf for a discreet and elegant knot.

10. Exotic Head Cover
