summer temps are here (finally), so it’s time to have some fun with styling + accessorizing. check out this quick DIY tutorial on how to turn a scarf it into a headwrap!
the headwrap trend has roots from cultures across the globe, and is also reminiscent of 1960’s vintage fashion. each resort season, we see it on the runway, wrapped and styled in a fresh way. luxury designers such as Missoni and Gucci both had their own take on the headwrap for example:
whether your style vibe is edgy downtown chic, bohemian cool, or something totally true to you, this accessory trend is easy and elevates a simple summer outfit. plus, it’s super economical because more than likely, you probably have a scarf (or chunni for our South Asian babes) in your wardrobe. search for your favorite scarves in your closet and try this easy DIY head-wrap…
check out how designer + stylist, Amy Devan, tied a head-wrap on our in-house MUA + beauty expert, Payal Patel. it’s an easy 5-step process as outlined below! be sure to watch the FULL YouTube tutorial on NAVEDA COUTURE’s YouTube channel (SEE *FULL* VIDEO TUTORIAL HERE):
what you’ll need to do before you begin:
- find any large rectangular scarf
- “jhush” your hair…a.k.a. think chic bed-head. the head-wrap will look all the more effortless if your hair isn’t perfect
Step 1: start with the shorter side of a scarf, and begin folding into a panel
Step 2: place center of fabric on your forehead, just under your hairline
Step 3: criss-cross the fabric at the back of your head
Step 4: bring fabric to the front, and tie excess into a knot
Step 5: continue wrapping excess fabric around your head and tuck in loose ends
voila! isn’t she a stunner???
