Scarf braid or scarf ponytail?

Have you heard of the latest trend in hair accessories, the hair scarf? It's a great way of instantly boosting your look. But how will you wear it: in a chic French braid or a lovely low ponytail? Vote here!

French braid with a hair scarf

The look: Add some colour and texture to a regular hair braid by weaving in a patterned scarf. It's also a neat trick for making your hair look longer and thicker.

How to: Start with your hair loose. Fold your scarf in two, take a top section of hair and loop the scarf underneath, then hold the hair and the scarf together as if they were one section. Use this as if it were a regular section of hair, and braid into the rest of the loose hair, securing halfway-down with an invisible elastic.

What the editors say: We love this style for its ability to make an everyday braid so exciting! Don't worry about the occasional flyaway, this look is all about boldness and a carefree attitude.

Low ponytail and a hair scarf

The look: Bored of your ponytail but don't have time for an elaborate hairstyle? A hair scarf is all you need...

How to: This is an ultra simple style. Tie hair into a low ponytail and secure with an elastic, then tie the scarf around the base into a knot, letting the scarf flow freely down the sides. For a voluminous ponytail that isn't overwhelmed by the scarf, use the Savage Panache hairspray from the Wild Stylers 60s Babe collection by Tecni.ART.

What the editors say: Feel like Superwoman with your colourful cape billowing out behind you!
