A head scarf makes a great shawl. It comes in handy in the house when you’re a little chilly, outdoors on a cool day, as an extra layer under your coat or simply to dress up an outfit. A large oblong Israeli tichel with lurex can be used as a shawl and even makes it a lot more exciting since there is that added sparkle of silver lurex plus a lot of isreli tichel come with fringes to add even more interest.

2. Wear it as a Sash

If you are looking for an original kind of belt to match your outfit, try using your long oblong head scarf and tie it around your waist. Depending on exactly which style you are looking for you may want to either fold it, twist it or scrunch it before you tie it around your waist. You can tie it into a knot, a tie or a bow depending on the occasion.

3. Tie it as a Head Wrap

Take a small square head scarf and fold it into a thin band. Then, put the middle of the band by your neck under all your hair. Take the two ends and tie them on top of your head in a knot or a bow. This tie can give you the look of Rosie The Riveter.

4. Tie it like a Bow tie

Take a small square head scarf, fold it into a triangle, put it around your neck and tie it! Simple as 1,2,3! This is almost like sailor look. Small square head scarves come in tons of bold or muted patterns, you can either opt for silk which is more expensive or stick with the cheaper polyester.

Head scarves are really a world of their own and make great accessories for every and any occasion. So before shopping for your many accessories try to see what you can do with the head scarves you already have. For those of you who don’t have any you may want to consider buying some!

When tying a headscarf around your neck, there are a few different ways you may want to try. Either, you can tie it in a Tight Wrap around by tying it all around your neck with no extra material hanging down for a warm and cozy fit. This look is great if you are outside since it’s all tied up and will stay securely in place instead of swaying in the breeze and making you uncomfortable.

Muffler

Muffler

Another great option is the Muffler. This is similar to the tight wrap except it’s not wrapped all around. Simply open your headscarf all the way and put the middle at the back of your neck. Then, take both ends and tie them around your neck once or twice depending how long your head scarf is but leaving some extra material draping down over your chest.

Loop Tie

Loop Tie

A similar idea would be the Loop Tie. Simply take an oblong head scarf such as the Checkered Lurex Oblong Tichel with Fringes and crunch it into a long, thin rope.

Then take the loose ends, slip them though the loops and pull to tighten.
