HAIR-SPIRATION: HEAD SCARF THE MUST-HAVE HAIR ACCESSORY

HAIR-SPIRATION: HEAD SCARF
THE MUST-HAVE SS13 HAIR ACCESSORY

One of the reasons I love hair is that you don’t need to wait 6 months to try the new trends. Grab a colourful scarf and twist & pin your hair up, as seen at Dolce & Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week. This vintage-inspired style perfectly suites many looks from casual to couture.

How to get the look:
1) Apply cream-mousse from roots to ends to create some volume with a little texture when you blow-dry.
2) Blow-dry hair straight back so that there’s no part.
3) Tie on the silk headscarf folded about two inches thick, leaving about an inch of hair from the hairline, knotting scarf on the bottom to the side.
4) Pin hair up into a “rough updo” that’s almost a twist or a knot. You don’t need to be too precise, work with your hair length and type to create a loose style, and pin with large hair pins.

The best thing about this style? This would be the perfect messy upstyle when you haven’t had time to wash your hair. Adding a colourful scarf is the perfect distraction and makes this easy hairstyle look more polished.
