Trend alert: how to tie a headscarf

Inspired by the 80s and 90s, we're all for the headscarf trend. Find out how to fix it.

The Material Girl

The 80s are back with a vengeance, so take your inspiration from Madonna circa Material Girl and follow in her headscarf style. A pioneer in fashion, Madonna's looks are always on trend. The plan? Go for a tousled, almost dishevelled look with a loose headscarf wrapped, knotted and left to dangle. No bows at any cost.

The Sweetheart Bow

For the sweet looking bow, channel your inner Emma Wiggle. Tie the scarf around your head and finish with a perfect bow. Even better with a slightly gauzy style fabric. No loose ends on this one. Perfection is key.

Up and go

Looking for a way to spice up your bun? Knot your scarf in the centre and simply wrap. Leave the ends loose, or wrap them up, depending on your level of whimsy. A few seconds, and you're good to go!

The neat freak

A classic, the neat freak's favourite headscarf style is wrapped 'alice band' style to keep hair tucked away but also neatly tucked into itself. Wrap, tie into a knot up top, and tuck in the ends to give it a totally seamless finish. This look can be worn day or night, and definitely looks more put together and grown up than the more frivolous Sweetheart or the Material Girl.

The butterfly

For those who are absolute scarf beginners, go for the easy Butterfly tie. Simply tie to the side of the head and improvise a bow. It sits jauntily at an angle, butterfly-like and looks funky, casual and very laid back.
