Winter Head Scarves – Layer it Up!

headscarf-cotton-square-pileSome women just love their headscarves that they want to wear them all year round!

It may be that patterned head scarf that goes so well with your eyes, or that sentimental gift you received. Whatever the case, just because the weather’s turned cooler doesn’t mean you cant wear it anymore. You just need to know how to winterize your current headcovers.

One option is to bundle up under the headcover. 100% cotton undercovers make great scarf liners that will keep the heat in and yet still allow the scalp to breath. They are available in lots of classic colors so you can find one that suits your needs.

Another option is to layer different headscarves. You can layer with a solid colored complimentary or contrasting scarf, or if you feel really daring, you can go wild with different prints. Simply put the 2 scarves on your head together as you would regularly tie one. Leave a 1-2 inch space in the front so the bottom layer peeks through. If you leave the tails hanging, this has a really nice fuller effect. or you can twist the ties into each other and then twist them around the back or top as you prefer.

And as the weather gets even colder, you always have the option of adding a 3rd scarf to the mix.

So have fun and get creative as you layer your head coverings this winter.

Cover Your Head with Comfort and Style!

Here’s how, first you need to choose a tichel that you would like to wear.  Best to use a soft cotton one for added comfort. Then, tie it how you’d wear it.

Next, put the hat you want to wear on top of the headscarf and you are simply transformed into a new look.

You can use different tichels and different hats for all types of occasions and to match assorted outfits, the beach, party or every day!

Pre-tied bandanas are rapidly making it as one of the hottest and most liked head coverings everywhere.  For those of you who don’t know what a pre-tied bandana is, it’s basically a pre-tied headscarf. Instead of buying a head scarf and tying it yourself, simply buy a ready made, pre-tied bandana in the color and pattern you like and slip it on! It is pre sewn with an elastic in the back to hold it securely at the neck. In addition, they are made of comfortable materials such as cotton, lycra, velour and terry for different needs and seasons.

The rest of your hair should be sticking out. Wearing a pre-tied bandana as a partial head covering is great for those with thin hair, bald spots and those who are starting to lose their hair.

2. Wear it as a full head covering. Slip it on and tuck all your hair under the elastic by the neck. Simple as that! You should have two tails, one hanging down on either side of your head. If you’d like you can leave them hanging or you can make a knot so they should be short and out of your way. It makes a great head covering for those who cover all their hair for religious purposes or those with partial or full hair loss.

3. Try tying your pre-tied head scarf into a bun style! For this style, you will need to buy a pre-tied bandana with long tails (around 10-14 inches) to make it work. Those with hair loss can or a short hair cut can use a Hidden HEIGHT cotton undercover to achieve the same look. Put your hair into a bun and then put on your pre-tied. Then, simply take one of the tails, twist it, and wrap it tightly around the top of the bun. Tuck the excess fabric of the tail under the twist once you have gone fully around one time.  Do the same with the other tail and you’re all done! One more tip: add a scrunchie pony holder to your bun to increase the volume if you have thin or short hair.
