How to Tie a Headscarf: 10 Brilliant Ideas from Pinterest

Let's face it: We don't all wake up like this. No matter how hard we try or how much time we spend prepping, we're usually too lazy to attempt much of anything with our hair. Lucky for us, headscarves are a totally acceptable way to look chic while exerting little to no effort. Jackie O made the style popular in the '60s, and Prada brought the trend back on the Spring 2007 runway. We searched Pinterest for ideas on how to tie a headscarf and rounded up 10 of our favorite tutorials for you to try this summer.


Front Knot Turban



Cynthia from Le Blog Tapouillon Vintage ties a bright headscarf into a front-knotted turban. This style is ideal for unwashed hair, since the entire top of your head is covered.


Betty Bow Headscarf



For an easy everyday style, wrap a folded scarf around your hair line and tie it into a bow in front. How cute does Andrea of Pretty Me This look?


Folded Turban



We love the blog Honestly WTF for its cheeky and quirky taste that makes us really rethink what we consider cool. This folded turban tutorial is a no-brainer. Tuck your hair under the wraps or keep it down—this look is perfect for a summer day in the sun.


Braided Headscarf



Whit of Britt + Whit incorporated the excess fabric of her headscarf into a braid, inspired by this tutorial from Vanessa of Late Afternoon. It's a quick, easy and fun way to dress up an ordinary summer hairstyle. Bonus points if you have a matching headscarf-shirt/dress combo.


Retro Knotted Headscarf



Add a knot to the front of your headscarf, as Elena of Seamless did. To achieve the retro look, grab your favorite scarf and follow her tutorial.


Loose Ends Headscarf



Alida of Alida Makes created a perfectly messy head wrap by leaving a bit of the front ends untucked. Re-create the look with a brightly colored and patterned scarf folded into a triangle, or cut your own as she did.


Rosette Headscarf



If we're going to trust anyone to show us how to rock this boho trend, it's Free People. Check out the rosette headscarf tutorial on the brand's Bldg 25 blog.


Retro Twisted-Back Turban



Alexandra from Into the Woods twisted the front of her turban back for a retro vibe.


Simple Twisted Headscarf



Looking for something simple? Try out this twisted headscarf tutorial from Alicia of Alicia Fashionista. It's a perfect everyday finishing touch—and looks great with any hairstyle.


Wrap-Back Headscarf



Keiko Lynn is one of our go-to gals for hair inspiration. This wrapped headscarf adds a touch of chic to an updo and can be dressed up or down.
