A head wrap style for every occasion

A head wrap can be an epic accessory or a hairstyle in itself. What’s more, it can help you to prevent damage caused by weather conditions or friction from other hair styling. Headscarves can also add a touch of style to a bad hair day, or better yet, help you to make it a great hair day. Here are some tips to help you find the perfect head wrap styles for any occasion.  


For bed

If you are about to catch some well-deserved Z’s, remember your hair is just as deserving of a rest as you. By wrapping your hair, you can provide protection from breakage caused by friction, and loss moisture. What’s more, you can use the time that your hair is wrapped to make a big difference – a deep conditioner for example, will nourish and enrich your hair and protect it from damage.

For the ultimate strand protection, you can opt for the classic do-rag. Try a beauty cap or a tightly knotted silk scarf. The key here is to ensure your hair stays covered and protected all night. Obviously, this look is NSFW. 


For a casual daytime event 

If you are heading out to a music festival or a catch-up lunch with girlfriends,  a funky wrap is sure to add some pizazz to your outfit. Not only will you turn heads, but you will also be protecting your hair from the elements, especially if you will be outdoors. Simply place the chosen scarf on your head with the two ends facing the front of your head.

Twist both ends together. Now, flip the twisted scarf towards the nape of your neck, secure the tips underneath the headwrap and voila, you are ready to roll. To style this look you can opt for a bright and bold fabric. Or, alternatively, go for something more neutral and accent the look with large earrings and a chunky statement choker. 


For the office 

For the office, you will probably want something a little more reserved, right? Wrong! A retro scarf that harks back to your favourite silver screen beauty can be the perfect move. Paired with bold makeup like cats eyes and red lips, this look says “I am confident.” Go on, give it a try!

The other option is to secure the hair neatly in a tight bun or ponytail or simply pin hair back. Place a long-folded strip on your head with the two ends facing the front of your head. Tie the ends of the scarf into a bow and play around until you achieve the perfect look.To style, this look add a structured jacket to a soft blouse to create a chic uniform. And, don’t forget to smooth your hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Oil for the perfect finish. 


Humble headwrap styles are not simply to keep your hair under wraps. They can give your hair a break or act as a cool accessory to compliment that stunning outfit. You go, girl!
