Ready for another Match the Look? Today the dilemma is all about how you choose to wear that oh-so-versatile accessory: the hair scarf. As part of your ponytail/bun, or in a headband? The choice is yours!
The hair scarf: a hair tie alternative
The look: Forget that old hair elastic that can pull at the scalp and damage your hair, and opt for this gentler and prettier alternative.
What the editors say: To ensure the hair doesn't slip out of the scarf, you have two options: either use an elastic underneath to keep the hair in place, or use a texturizing spray like Crêpage de Chignon from Wild Stylers by L'Oréal Professionnel to give grip and a matte finish.
The hair scarf: a modern head band
The look: In summer, foreheads can become shiny throughout the day. Wearing a silk or cotton foulard as a headband is ideal for hiding the shine, keeping your hair out of the way, and framing your face.
Styling: By twisting the scarf right at the middle point of your forehead, you can create this pretty style that works to elongate the shape of your face and shows off your bone structure.
What the editors say: We love a smooth head scarf that contrasts with voluminous hair at the back. After washing hair, apply a volumizing mousse like Volume Lift from Tecni.ART and blow-dry using a diffuser to encourage natural volume before tying your headscarf right at the end.
