They are even practical in some situations. Like keeping your head warm on colder days, sweat out of your eyes, and to be totally honest, they are perfect for those days when you don’t have time to style or wash your hair. I cannot tell you how many times wearing a hippie head scarf has saved me from bad hair days or transformed my outfit from boring to cute.
The best part is that there are quite a few different ways in which you can wear one. Here are five different ideas to inspire you the next time you wear a hippie head scarf.
1. The Ponytail Look
This is great for medium to long hair and super easy to do. Place the scarf on your head like a veil, grab it along with all of your hair and tie/clip it into a pony tail. Add an extra flair by using a ponytail holder with a flower, feather or beads attached to it.
2. As A Classic Headband
Keep your hair out of face with the classic headband look. Great for both short or long hair. Fold the scarf to a thin width and tie a knot at the nape of your neck. Perfect for keeping those unruly pieces of hair from flying about.
3. The Hippie Headband
The classic hippie headband is worn across the front of your forehead and tied in a simple knot in the back. A favorite look for sure and works for any length of hair.
4. The Twisted Tiara
To get this sweet look tightly twist up your hippie head scarf, place it on the crown of your head, leaving your hair split between the front and back of the “tiara”. Tie a knot underneath your hair at the nape of your neck. Cute for both short or long hair.
5. The Braid Me In
A great combination of a classic headband and braid. Place the scarf as you would for wearing it as a headband and instead of tying a knot use the length of the material braiding it into your hair.
