5 ways to wear a scarf and top knot – 1 – Twist tie

Scarves + top knots = hairstyle fun!

Here’s the first hairstyle in my series of five simple ways to wear a scarf with your top knot.

How to get the look

Start with a giant top knot. You can find a top knot tutorial here that works even if you don’t have a lot of hair.

Fold your scarf. I used a scarf approx 80cm square and folded it diagonally. Then fold the end in until you have a long strip about 5 cm wide.

Wrap the scarf around your top knot, centre it at the back and twist it at the front. Bring the ends behind your top knot and tie at the back.

I admit I have an obsession with top knots. This hairstyle is a weekly favourite so I like to use a scarf to change the look so I don’t get bored with the same top knot.

      Yay, thanks for trying the tutorial Maribeth. I used to be nervous of red lipsticks and now I feel bare if I’m not wearing a bright lip! This is NARS heat wave, an orange-y red. It takes a bit of testing but you can find the shade that suits you.

    I have the same scarf!! I like wearing it as a headband, knotted turban-style at the front. I love this look though – wish my hair was long/big enough to do it! :)

      You might have guessed the third way to wear it! I love scarf headbands. Check out my top knot tutorial as my bun is all padding. I don’t have that much hair either!
