Some time ago I came across the following picture from a Hermès ad campaign and saved it in my “Inspiration” folder on my desktop. I was saving the idea for warmer summer days, but since we’re now celebrating scarf month, I figured I might as well give it a try already. I don’t usually wear hair scarves as much during the winter months but they’re a beloved staple in the summer. They’re great for keeping your (frizzy) hair out of your face and for adding that carefree boho chic look to a summer ensemble.
So here is my interpretation of this dramatic look:
This works really well with a long narrow light-weight scarf. (The same kind that work well
). I just tied the scarf around my head and made a knot at the nape of my neck. I then took the ends of the scarf and weaved them in with my hair into a side braid. Once the braid it complete, you can pull on the hair and scarf fabric a bit to loosen it up and show the scarf off more. I then tied the braid together with a hair elastic that I consequently hid under the scarf ends, which got wrapped around the elastic and tied off in a knot. This was a simple and quick way to add a little flair to a classic hairdo.
Keeping the rest of this look simple gives the hair scarf a chance to pop. I played off the colors in the scarf by wearing a pale pink top under a navy vest, added jeans and boots, and was ready to go. S.
