Summary: If you thought that scarves can just be worn as a top or on top of it, then you're wrong. A scarf makes the best head accessory as it is versatile, easily available, and can be worn whenever you like. Explore these 7 ways in which you can style a scarf as a head accessory, and look different every time.

There are only two types of days in this world — good hair days and bad hair days! The one thing that's common in both is cute hair accessories that can amp up and save your hair game effortlessly. Talking about such head accessories, there's one item that immediately comes to everyone's mind — a scarf.

A headscarf, although small in dimension, has a huge impact on your overall outfit. They have been an integral part of everyone's wardrobe forever. While this widely used accessory is not a new trend, it definitely can be used in new ways now.

How To Style One Scarf As Different Head Accessories

To learn how to style a scarf as a head accessory in different ways and look stunning every time, read ahead!

1. The Ever Classic Ponytail

This is one of the easiest yet one of the trickiest styles. Tie your ponytail with a strong elastic band first. Wrap your scarf around it, but before making the knot, insert both ends of the scarf inside the band so that they make a criss-cross shape on the top. Now, tie the scarf in a knot and get that cute and elegant look. Use a long rectangular scarf whose opposing ends fall at least to your shoulders.

2. A Headband, But With A Twist

The second-most common way to use a scarf as a head accessory is by styling it as a headband. Start with a square scarf and fold it in half diagonally. Keep folding it from the wider end till you get the desired width. Now, place the middle part of the scarf under your hair at the nape of your neck. Bring both ends on the top of your head and twist them so that they latch together in an interlocked style. Tie the loose ends into a knot at the nape of your neck and voila! Your chic and classy look is done.

3. Bandannas For That Retro Vibe

Retro Vibe

Lizzie McGuire-inspired bandannas are never getting out of fashion and well, no one's complaining. For a classic bandanna, fold your square scarf in half diagonally. Leave half an inch of your hair on the front and cover the rest with the scarf. Tie both opposite ends at the nape of your neck and secure it with a band.

4. The Babushkas Straight From The Victorian Era

If your soul is stuck in the world of Jane Austen, then babushkas are meant for you. Fold your square scarf in half diagonally and cover your head with it. Take the opposing ends and tie them in a knot under your chin. That's it! It's that easy and will stay in place throughout the day.

To make your babushka look more Hollywood-style, skip the last step. Instead of tying the ends under your chin, wrap them around your neck and knot them at the back. Tuck the remaining fabric under the scarf and you're good to go.

5. Braid It Up

While there are many ways to incorporate a scarf in your braid, here's the easiest one. Tie your hair into a ponytail with an elastic band and tie one end of the scarf to it. It's best if you use an oblong scarf for this style. Now, treat the scarf as the third major strand of the braid and start crisscrossing them together. In the end, you can either use a band or the remaining part of the scarf to tie the knot.

6. Wrapped Around The Bun

For all the days when you don't have enough time for a fancy hairdo, an easy bun comes into play. Messy, tight, top or low, whatever style you choose for your bun, a scarf can make them all look prettier. All you need to do is wrap your scarf around your bun in whatever way you like. You don't need to be precise or follow any particular method. Either wrap the scarf only around the bun or cover your entire head with it. Make sure to tuck and tie all the loose ends to get a voguish vibe.

7. The Rosette Turbans

The rosette turbans have become quite popular among the trendies. It's pretty simple and you need to start by tying a high bun. Place the center of your scarf at the nape of your neck and wrap your entire head in it by bringing the ends forward. Tie both ends into a knot to secure them at the front. Now, start twisting the remaining fabric, and once done, spiral them around your bun. Pin up the end and tuck them inside the scarf neatly.
