Wear Your Favorite Satin Scarf as a Headband (here's how).

hair styles


Every summer, I go through this awkward phase where I have no idea what to do with my hair.  Now that I transitioned, I barely wear my hair straight anymore.   The humidity makes it darn near impossible for me to wear a braid out in peace so I'm left with little options.

This year, I want to get a little creative.  My first order of business is to compile a collection of hairstyle ideas that are both cute and functional for the hot, sweltering summer months.  The first option I've chosen is an easy one --copious use of headbands.  

 I own very few headbands.  I find it hard to find cute options that go with various outfits.  Plus I have a big head which adds another layer of difficulty in finding the perfect headband.  On the other hand, I have a draw full of satin scarfs.  Many of them have beautiful designs that could beautifully accessorize mundane topknots.  

As soon as I saw this picture above I immediately wanted to figure out a way to quickly convert all of my favorite scarves into stunning headbands.  A satin scarf headband is a wonderful hair accessory because, unlike their cotton counterparts, your edges will be protected and loved.  Satin is a hair-friendly fabric so you don't have to worry about it drying out your hairline or being too rough on your precious baby hairs. 

So let's talk about how to do it!  

There are a lot of videos that show how to turn a scarf into a headband, but they don't actually teach you how to transform your scarf in a way that looks convincingly like a headband.  The video below does a wonderful job explaining the process in a way that's easy to replicate.   

While you're here, check out this video that demonstrates how to transform your satin scarf from a cute hair accessory into a lightweight, stylish top for summer.
