The scarf is back in a new way this season, with style stars wearing them in their hair. As demonstrated on both the Fall 18 and Spring 19 runways, including Valentino, Kate Spade, and Tom Ford, there are countless ways to style hair scarves into your strands. From effortless ponytails and low buns to intricate, twisted braids, you can glam up just about any look with a silk scarf.
Oh, and did we mention that they’re the perfect solution for those days when your hair hasn’t seen the shower in longer than you’d care to admit? Just add dry shampoo and tie the ends of a scarf in a knot around the base of a low ponytail. This, btw, is the quintessential – and quickest! – scarf hairstyle.
Whatever your style MO, whether you’re a fan of prints or more of a minimalist, the beauty of this look is that not only are there no rules, it’s all inclusive and universally flattering. Wrap, twist, tie, and tuck; play with different lengths, widths, colors, and patterns to find a style that suits you. And for those bolder, Instagram-worthy looks, add a statement designer scarf (bonus likes if it’s vintage!) into the mix for maximum impact. Team it with a pop of bright lipstick, too, to really play off the colors.
