Lately, I've taken a liking to using scarves to tie my hair up on a bad hair day. On a recent photo set, Emileigh asked if I could do a tutorial for this turban style, and here we are today.
Now this simple tutorial can help you save yourself from a dreaded bad hair day, or just give a bit more oomph to your vintage outfit.
You will need:
A long rectangular scarf
Rats tail comb
Optional (and not shown):
You might also need a person with hair, just saying.
Start by sectioning off some hair to style for later. Then pin it down, or use a duck clip to keep it out of the way.
Next, comb and brush your hair back and tuck it under if you've got manageable thick hair. If not, tie it in a hair tie.
Now take your scarf, and place it under your hair on the back of your head. Even it out
Pull the back up some, and pull the sides up to the front of your head. Tie it behind the area you intend to style. Fix any parts of your hair that have decided to escape with the rats tail comb
Straighten out one tail end of the scarf,
Then pull it to the back, continuing to straighten it out.
Tuck it under the bottom part, and repeat on the other side.
Style your hair as needed; pin curls, victory rolls, whatever you want to do.
And you're done! Admire your cute hair scarf, and perfectly awesome way to disguise laziness or a bad hair day!
I hope all of you are having a good day today. If you celebrate it, Happy Thanksgiving!
