Step One

Fold your square scarf in half to form a triangle. Continue folding the scarf over until you’ve created a long, thin band. If you’re using a rectangular scarf, hold both corners and fold it down until you’ve formed the same shape.

Step Two

Pull the folded scarf around your head, holding the ends out in front.

Step Three

Tie the ends into a secure knot at the front of your head.

Step Four

Wrap the ends from the knot around the side of your head and tie them in the back. Tuck in the loose ends.

Step Five

Voila! A perfectly tied head scarf--and a stylish look you can wear all summer long.
