UPDATE: Check out my new video tutorial for 3 different way to tie a head scarf!

After many requests, I finally made a tutorial on how to tie a simple head scarf. It’s really, really easy. I did this without looking in the mirror, so that should tell you how easy it is. Let’s get started!

Start with a large, square scarf. I like my vintage silk scarves because they’re soft and not bulky.

Fold one corner to the other to form a triangle.

Fold the corner down to about the middle, and then fold over again (but not all the way to the edge, because you want it to be a little thicker).

Put the scarf around your head with the ends in the front, making sure the wrong side of the scarf (the part where you can see the folds) is against your head.

Tie it in a loose knot at the front. I like to keep the whole scarf a little on the loose side (it will stay in place).

Tuck the ends behind/underneath the scarf.

    Lovely! Can you please give me a sense of how big the scarf should be? I don’t own any and want to buy one. Thanks!

      Large, square scarves work best – it’s easier to hide the longer ends than to make a too-small one fit. For instance, a small neckerchief will be too small.

    I struggle with keeping my scarf in place, maybe because it is silk? It just slips off whenever I move my head.

      I often wear silk, but it’s washed silk, so it has a little grip. You know what also helps? Dry shampoo! It gives your hair some texture for it to hold onto.

    I’ve just spent the last 2 hours scouring eBay trying to find another scarf printed like yours. Does the one in this tutorial have any tags or distinguishing marks? I freaking love that print.

    Love this look! Wondering if you could possibly give me the measurements of the scarf you used? I’ve found ones that are 32″ and others that are 90″… The latter seems a bit on the large side to me?! Xx

    Wonderful post !!! I am a diehard fan of vintage headscarves. I have one I bought that is kind of satiny and it slips around a lot. I recently made an elastic one with velvet ribbon on the back and it grips so well. I may have to try this with your tutot.
    Thanks for sharing nice ideas and for the inspiration.
