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.

4 Great Ways to Transform Your Head Scarf into a Warm and Stylish Winter Scarf!

Bet you’re all ready for the freezing cold winter months with your hat, gloves, ear muffs and scarves! But hey, did you know that your head scarves can be worn as a scarf around your neck as well? In addition, there are so many more ways to wear them than just tying them around your head, you just got to be original! Below are a few new ways to wear the head scarves you already have.

Tight Wrap

Tight Wrap

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. This style is great for wearing outdoors and tucking the extra material into your coat or also great for indoor use if you just want to keep warm in a stylish way.

Knot

Knot

A fun and a little bit different way to wear a head scarf around your neck is by tying it in the front of your neck with a Knot or a bow. This can be worn indoors, outdoors and can actually add a lot to a simple outfit.

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. Fold it in half and center it around your neck so that the fold and the loose ends should be hanging down evenly in the front. Then take the loose ends, slip them though the loops and pull to tighten.

Now that we gave you some great ideas to do with your head scarves I’m sure you can come up with a few more by playing around with the. Have fun!

 

Have You Tried a Pre-tied Bandana Yet? Check Out One Of The Hottest Head Coverings On The Market!

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. A pre-tied bandana can be worn in many ways which makes it a fun head covering!

Below are a few different ways to wear a pre-tied bandana.

1. Wear a pre-tied bandana as a partial head covering. Take your pre-tied bandana, put it on your forehead and pull it back till about half way down your head. 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.

These are just a few basic ideas but there are so many more out there to experiment – be original!  Once you get used to wearing a pre-tied bandana you’ll start wondering how you ever lived without one!

Soft Pre-tied Headwraps: Different Ways They Can Be Worn

Soft wide headbands are rapidly making it to one of the hottest and most popular hair accessories!

Soft wide headbands are rapidly making it to one of the hottest and most popular hair accessories. There are many reasons why head wraps are so well liked but, I think it is safe to say that the most common reason is because people feel that by buying only one head wrap they are actually getting much more. Soft wide head wraps have many different purposes and ways to be worn. Not only are they cost efficient but they are also really comfortable and pretty. Below are a few different ways a soft wide head wrap can be worn.

1. Partial Head Cover:

Women with a mild case of alopecia or hair loss that have thin hair or bald spots in the front of their head wear a soft wide headband to cover up the spots without hair. Soft wide headbands worn as a half covering allows them to wear the rest of their hair down without having to fully cover it. In addition, they are comfortable, stylish and easy to put on.

2. Wigs:

Soft wide headbands are also great for women who wear wigs and want to make it look more natural. In addition, some women wear a fall. A fall is a wig that doesn’t have hair in the front of the wig; the hair starts further back on the cap in order to make it more lightweight and comfortable. These wigs are meant to be worn with something on top such as a beret, hat or soft wide headband.

3. Thin Headband:

A soft wide headband can also be worn as a thin headband. Either, you can fold it in half for a neat and put together look, or you can put it on regular and gently crunch it up towards the front of your head. Using a soft wide head band as a thin headband is great since it is original, different and really comfortable!

4. Fashion Headscarf:

Another great way to wear a soft wide head band is like a fashion head scarf tied around the top of your head. It’s a perfect summer head scarf for camping, outings and outdoor activities.

Of course, soft wide head bands are mostly worn to keep ones hair out of ones face. They are great for cooking, cleaning, gardening and any other time you want your hair out of your face. They are the best way to go since they are light, comfortable and most importantly- stylish!

Like I said, soft wide headbands for women are cost efficient, comfortable stylish and oh so practical! Feel free to leave a comment about another way it can be worn- I’m sure there are plenty we didn’t mention that you know about!

How To Tie a Tichel- Classic Turban Knot Style

The classic turban knot style is a really easy and original way to tie a tichel. It is perfect for hot summer days when you want something light and colorful to hold all your hair back and keep your hair off your neck. It has a great fitted support and makes covering your hair a dream. The best part is that you can design your own tichel! Simply choose a headscarf of your choice with a turban knot head wrap in whichever color you like and you have it. You can go a little darker and simple for a dressy look and loud and colorful for an everyday or funky look. It’s up to you – be original!

In the demonstration above we used a hidden height undercover to make it look like there is a head full of hair. You can simply put your hair in a bun, or for those with thin hair or hair loss a hidden height undercover will do the trick.

1. When tying our headscarf in the Classic Turban knot style, we experimented with our Purple Oblong Tichel with Flowers. However, you may use any oblong headscarf of your choice. Start by placing your oblong rectangular headscarf centered on your head. If the head scarf is very long, fold it in half first.

2. Take both sides of the headscarf and make a tie or knot in back of your neck.

3. Now, gently take the whole headscarf that’s hanging down and tuck it in and under the knot you just made. It should look like a snood with no tails hanging down.

4. In the demonstration we chose a white turban knot head wrap. Choose the color turban knot you want and place it as the band to support and hold the head scarf in place.

Hidden HEIGHT

Hidden HEIGHT on MyHeadcoverings.com

People undergoing hair loss often complain that even if their head scarf is attractive it is still missing the “look” that a headscarf gives off on someone who has hair because it simply looks flat on the head. Incidentally, this problem is not unique to people with hair loss; women with very thin hair also complain about this. Until now, our main solution for women with this issue who still wished to wear headscarves (which are the lightest headcovering) was either to direct them to out Pre-tied Bandanas with Height section or to send them to our Tichel tying guide to show them some ways to tie their headscarf that would show some height in the front. Well, now we are pleased to offer a new product online that may solve this problem once and for all. The Hidden HEIGHT Undercover. Basically, it’s a light cotton cap with a feather light cushion insert that is worn as an undercover with any headscarf. It’s so light and comfortable that you’ll barely notice that it’s there. At the same time, it adds the “Height” that you are looking for. We must say, at first we brought in a small sampling of these “Hidden HEIGHT Undercovers” to test them out. They sold so quickly and the reviews back were really positive, women simply loved it. So we decided to bring in a larger quantity. Try it out you’ll be amazed at the results.
