Scarf Tutorial 4 – Headwrap Braid

Good morning! Our tutorial today is a sweet, flirty style that we came up with while playing around with one of our extra long, skinny scarves. We also like the way this one looks when you roll the braid up into a side-bun – play around with it, and see what you like best! If you give it a try, we’d love it if you’d share it with us.

Scarf Tutorial - Headwrap Braid 1

Start with a long rectangle scarf (or a large square scarf, folded into a skinny rectangle). Gather hair to one side. Wrap scarf over your head, and make a knot behind one ear, leaving one end as long as possible.

Tuck the short end of the knot so that it won’t be visible. Separate hair into two sections, then braid the hair and scarf together.

When you get to the end, wrap the excess scarf around the end. You may either tuck it in and be finished (you can sneak a bobby pin in there too!), or continue to the next step:

You may secure tightly with a hairband, and then wrap the end of the scarf over the hairband to cover it.

…and, hello gorgeous!

We used our “Suzie” scarf for this how-to – a rayon chiffon scarf from the 1960’s. If you want it for your very own, you can see it in our store.

Trifari

Hi there! This morning Katina and I are adding one more lovely item to our shop.

This chunky, plastic, beaded Trifari necklace from the 1960’s is the perfect length for layering with other styles to create an eclectic mix of vintage and modern. In fact, one of the things we love about the Trifari brand is that most of their pieces are so interesting and stylish, while still retaining a modern feeling, even decades later. It’s tough for a fashion accessory to be both retro and timeless, but many Trifari items are just that.

Lucky for you, we have a few more Trifari pieces for sale: this pair of classic earrings, and another little surprise coming to our shop next week!
