so it’s no secret that i’m fond of headscarves and headbands… i feel they’re the easiest way to add a pop to any outfit, and a brilliant tool to cover those dreadful bad hair days =P so here is another headscarf tutorial using a long rectangular shaped scarf, the same one i used in the previous post, Le Bunny Bleu Oxfords, i hope you dig!
so how do you like the new header Patty designed? if you look closely you can see some paper dolls. when Patty first showed me her inspiration, i knew i had to make a post about vintage paper dolls ♥
i don’t know about you, but i have played with lots of paper dolls when i was growing up. too bad i lost them all along the way =( the first set is probably the closest to what i played with when i was little, deep-set eyes and way too skinny lol.
how cool? paper dolls with fashion from the 19th century. so much lace, so girly, so vintage ♥
hi lovelies! a lot of you probably know about my obsession with headscarves/ headwraps/headbands… i think adding a head scarf is such an easy way to make any outfit stand out. and because i’m in the process of growing out my hair these days, it is also a great way to cover up my awkward haircut lol. today i’ll be showing you how i tie my head scarves! it’s so simple i almost feel kind of silly doing this tutorial =P
step 1. you start off with a square scarf, even though i have like 10 headscarves i find myself always coming back to this vintage scarf. maybe because it’s got the most awesome patterns? step 2. fold the scarf one corner to the other to form a triangle
step 3. then fold it several times until it becomes a long strip, i like mine to be about 10cm wide, you can fold the corner down (for a cleaner look) or the other way around (for a messy non-try-hard look, which i like) step 4. place the centre of the stripe at the back of your head
step 5. take the two ends and make a knot in front of your forehead, i like to do two knots step 6. tuck in the remaining ends so they can’t be seen
