Like everything else retro, the hair and headscarf combo is back in a big way this summer. Forget Boy George and Bow Wow Wow, this year’s take on the look is chic, bold and beautiful—and it only takes 5 minutes, making this the perfect up-do for festivals, holidays and summer picnics.
1. The headband
The wider, the better—as it can be worn over the hairline for a super-fresh take on a retro style.
2. The two-way bandana
Tie the knot at the back, like Axl Rose or in the front like a ’20s It girl. A long, thin scarf works best
for this look.
3. The gangsta
Can’t get enough layering? Slap a cap on top of a funky scarf—either left loose or neatly knotted on the back.
4. The bohemian
Haven’t worn your LBD for a while because it seemed a little serious? Tie your scarf as a turban to give it a more relaxed vibe.
5. The cover-up
Scarves are perfect for bad hair days. Wrap a broad scarf around your head and pair it with feminine lace to take the attention off your tresses.
