Scarf Tips:

—If using a rectangle scarf, fold it horizontally as often as you prefer, based upon the thickness you desire

—If using a square scarf, you must fold it into a triangle first

Place the scarf on your hairline and knot it in the center of your neck, or side-of-neck based upon preference.

This Secret to An Effortless Updo comes from InStyle magazine:

“We’ve seen stylists use this simple method to whip up a chic chignon in seconds.  First, rough up strands with texturizing spray, then gather hair together as if making a low ponytail.  Fasten an elastic three or four inches from the ends, “then roll hair up and pin the knot in place,” says Redken creative consultant Guido Palau, who crafted updos for Marc by Marc Jacobs.  You can secure it high on the head or low along the nape.”  Colorful hairband, wrap, scarf, tiara is icing on the cake!

Pony Tail 101:

In lieu of an elastic band, try this InStyle tip, cutting elastic straight from a spool and tying it super securely like they do on the runway.
