Some days your hair feels gorgeous, clean and beautiful enough to star in a hair-care campaign. Other days, not so much. It’s dirty, frizzy or simply seems to have developed a new cowlick that you just can’t be bothered to deal with. Whether you’re trying to hide a bad hair day, hoping to protect your strands from wind or rain or you’re just bored and looking to try a new ’do, a headscarf can help.
The headscarf is hardly a new trend, but it is a fun way to shake up your use of the cold-weather accessory (though we suggest sticking to silk or other thin fabrics rather than wrapping a cozy wool number around your scalp). The benefit of this particular hair accessory is how versatile it can be: There are tons of different looks you can achieve with just one scarf, ranging from super-simple to intricately detailed. Whatever look you’re going for, we’ve gathered together the best tips and tricks for achieving the headscarf style you want.
