My lovely friend, whose name I shall protect, does not know who Blake Lively is. The shame!!
I caught up with her for dinner and drinks Friday and she kindly told me she’d been reading my blog and loved the girl with the long hair. She said, I am going to do my hair like her, how do I wear a scarf like she does?
I did take her request seriously and will give a how to wear a headscarf like Blake Lively below, but I can’t get over her not even recognising Blake since she has foxtel and watches tv. I think my poor friend is stuck in SATC mode and needs to upgrade to Gossip Girl.
Anyway, I digress.
How to wear a headscarf like Blake Lively
The key to this look is that the headscarf is purely a hair accessory. It’s not holding back any of the hair, it is merely placed around the finished style.
- Tease your hair at the crown of your head by gently back-combing
- Leaving some hair loose around your hairline, take a small section from each side and pin at the back to keep some volume in your hair. I did this twice, twisting the sections together and hiding the pin underneath.
- Take your headscarf and tie in place between two sections of your hair. Leave some hair loose underneath.
- Tuck the top of your ears under the scarf and play with your fringe until you are happy and you’re done!
I used a square scarf folded on the diagonal but almost any size scarf will do as long at it fits around your head.
What do you think of this look?
