How to Wear a Head Scarf to the Beach

1611

If we have one bone to pick with summer, it’s that so many of the season’s most iconic looks are hard to pull off—without a little know how, that is. Our “How Tos,” which we’ll post all summer long, are here to help. The first look to conquer: the head scarf.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED: An infinity scarf. (Note: Infinity scarves are different from regular scarfs in that they have no ends and instead connect to make a full circle. This one, from Anthropologie, is particularly pretty.)

STEP 1

Place the scarf on the top of your head like a hood with the extra fabric hanging behind your shoulders.

STEP 2

Bring the bottom of the scarf to one side, low on your neck.

STEP 3

Leaving a small loop at the very end of the scarf, tightly twist the bottom of the scarf. The twist will cause the scarf to coil upwards.

STEP  4

Following the coil, make a bun with the scarf at the side of your head.

STEP 5

Wrap the end loop around the bun to secure.

Voila, your ready for the beach this summer in this hair-protecting and vintage-inspired look!
