  1. Pull your hair back

    Brush all your hair back into a ponytail, and secure it with a hair tie. Wrap a thin scarf around the hair, starting at the hairline.

  2. Place the main scarf on your head

    Center a long scarf on your head with the tails hanging over your shoulders.

  3. Tie the scarf

    Tie a single knot at the base of the neck, drawing the tails over your shoulders again.

  4. Cross one tail over

    Pull the left tail up and over your head. Lay the fabric on top of your head so that it is slightly back from the front of the scarf. Let the tail hang loosely over your shoulder.

  5. Cross the right tail over

    Hold onto the tail you just pulled over the top of your head, pulling it in front of the right tail. Use your other hand to pull the right tail up and over your head. Lay it down over the first crossing but back slightly.

  6. Tie the ends

    Keeping the top secure, tie a single knot underneath the first knot at the base of the neck. Tuck the ends into your head wrap.
