How to Tie a Head Scarf

Most of us think of styling scarves as wrapping them around our necks in the traditional manner, but let me jog your memory and remind you of how our Bollywood heroines wore polka dots scarves around their heads with the ends hanging to fall on both sides, which we call vintage fashion.

Men and women have worn scarves for millennia. Scarves have been around forever. They were employed in Ancient Rome as "sweat towels" to keep cool and dry sweat, despite today's association with women's apparel. The scarf eventually began to be used as an accessory for fashion and varied styles around the turn of the 19th century.

Black Scarves can be tied in various ways around their hair and for various cultural, geographical, and fashion reasons. Here are a few ways you can nail the hair tie game and learn how to wear the scarf on your head fashionably.

  • You can do this in two ways. First being the thin hairband and the other being the thick one. If you’re someone who likes a thin hairband style, take one end of the Taj Bidri, start folding it with a tiny margin, and do that till the end of the scarf. Once you’ve rolled the scarf all you have to do is to place it on top of your head, take it all the way below and tie a small knot under your neck. You can do the same thing with bigger width while folding and you make yourself a thick hairband.
