5 ways to wear a scarf and a top knot – 3 – Knot headband

I can wear my top knot all week long with these simple scarf hairstyles.

Using the same 80cm square scarf from look 1 and look 2, I’ve tied a simple knotted headband.

How to get the look

Start with a giant top knot. You can make a messy top knot or follow my top knot tutorial which works even if you don’t have a lot of hair.

Fold your scarf into a long strip diagonally.  My scarf is approx 80cm square but you can use a rectangular scarf too.

Tie your scarf around your head, making a double knot at the front. Twist the ends and tuck them into the rest of the headband.

This is so simple and easy and a great way to keep layers off your face. If you use a longer scarf you can tie it again at the back and tuck the ends in, or let them hang loose.

How do you secure your hair up at night for days when you don’t wash? I have a hard time finding a way to sleep comfortably without setting kinks in my hair to wear for day 2 and 3.

Hi Emily, I clip my hair up like this – http://www.hairromance.com/2011/10/how-to-wake-up-with-great-hair.html – and my hair looks great the next day. It’s such an easy trick, try it and let me know how you go.

Never thought that a scarf can be turned into a knot headband! Thanks for the idea. Now I can make use of those stocked scarves of mine! :)
