8 Hairstyles with Scarves for the Summer

Can you feel the summertime heat in the air? It's my favorite time of the year and I can't wait to share some beach fashion ideas that I've recently discovered during my travel adventures. During the times I spent basking in the sun on the beach, I observed a group of girls and their chic hair styles because it totally caught my attention. You would think that scarves are only popular during winter but I guess some of these girls decided to take advantage of a scarf's versatility for the summer. What a great idea!

So I decided to go deeper than  my usual how to tie a sarong research, since we all already know that sarongs can also be used as scarfs. I wanted to learn how to wrap my hair in a scarf just like them, since it appears to be easy enough to do it yourself (DIY) at home, right?  Be it long or short, curly or straight, blonde or brunette - a scarf head wrap fits all kinds of hairstyles and you can experiment with the look and accessorize in so many different ways.

You can start off by getting inspired from my list of top 10 favorite summer hairstyles using head scarves:

1) Vintage Head Scarf Ribbon

Old school and adorable, it's so easy to style your hair with a simple bow! You can tie all your hair up while you're tanning or simply tie a side pony tail for that cute look!

2) Hippie Head Band

Get that careless and dazed hippie chic look by letting your hair loose and free - using a scarf wrapped across your forehead and tied to a knot behind.

3) Pirate Head Wrap

Do it like Johnny Depp and add your own twist to a pirate look. This style is perfect to show off the beautiful pattern design of your scarf and conveniently protects your head during a sunny hot day!

5) Gypsy Queen Turban

Tuck in your hair to keep the sand away with this bun turban look, I love how it keeps a woman neat and fashionable at the same time! You can play around with the twist bun in any direction depending on your style.

6) Flowy Pony Tail

Who needs a hair tie when you can use a scarf to tie a pony tail? Beautiful and feminine, the fabric drapes nicely onto the skin and works so well with the ocean breeze. 

7) Scarf Braid Hair

Jazz up your usual hair braid by inserting a scarf into a braiding, the scarf creates a cool effect with its color and designs. Wouldn't this look be perfect if you're heading for a road trip in a convertible car?

8) Your Royal High Bun

For all you mermaids with luscious long hair, get the beautiful ballerina look by either tying a ribbon knot at the base of your bun or by keeping your fringe up as if you're using a hair band. 

So which one of these cute hairstyles with scarves would you like to try out? Similar to sarongs, there are so many ways to wear a scarf because they are just as versatile and functional. You can browse through 1 World Sarongs collection of scarves and test it out for the summer! Have fun :)

One of the infinite ways to use a sarong or scarf would be to cover a woman's hair or head, most commonly known as a head wrap, scarf or turban - usually for fashion styling or social consciousness (bad hair day?) or weather conditions (hot day VS. cold night) or hygiene purposes (dusty roads?) and in some cultures, for religious reasons also known as "hijab" or "tudung". If you're uncertain or simply a newbie to this way of tying a sarong, it's time to get inspired and learn! We're happy to share our most recent sarongspiration:

We got our eyes glued on our recent find - Modest Street Fashion , it is an amazing project of "a fashion-photography-documentary of the ever growing trend & culture of modest street style". Not only are we impressed by the variation of outfit and styles and mostly intrigued by the modern version of a "faith driven style". These women are beautifully dressed up with their own sense of style as a form of character expression.
