Trend Alert: Head Wraps

The head wrap trend is not losing steam.   This easy, but bold accessory is great for bad hair days.   And even for good ones… Why? Because luxe fabrics and bold colors are a great way to top off any look.  Head wraps work  for both casual and sophisticated looks.   Long hair. Short Hair.   Natural or relaxed.   Bohemian or preppy.   You can find a way to make this trend work with pretty much any wardrobe or lifestyle.   Interested in rocking this trend?

Here are a few tips:

  • Purchase a scarf or a yard of fabric.  To make tying the scarf easier, look for fabrics with a little bit of stretch.  Fabrics like stretch cotton or jersey are great options.
  • Decide whether you would like to completely cover your hair, or have a pompadour or bangs in the front.  Pull the remainder of your hair into a low bun or do flat twists to reduce bulk under the head wrap.
  • Tie your head wrap!  There are tons of step-by-step tutorials on the YouTube.
  • Accessorize your head wrap with jewelry.   Find bold necklaces and earrings that will complement your head wrap and overall look.

The styling options are seemingly endless!  Still need tips?  Check out the photo gallery for inspiration!
