Think back to Audrey Hepburn when she wore a scarf as a head wrap. This fashion accessory also serves to keep your hair from being whipped around by the wind as you ride through the countryside in a convertible with the top down. As you wear your scarf, allow the triangular ends at the back of your head to hang down. Wearing a scarf as a head wrap and including a large pair of sunglasses helps to cover your face, providing you with some additional privacy as well.

Fold your scarf in half diagonally, matching two corners together to from a triangle.

Brush your hair so it doesn’t fall into your eyes. Pick up the triangular scarf and place it on top of your head, allowing the two long tails to drape down in front of your shoulders. Take up both tails and tie them under your chin.

Push the ends under the scarf, in front of your ears. Smooth both ends so they don’t bunch up.

Tip

As you position your scarf on top of your head, make sure the folded edge is close to the top of your forehead. As you drive or ride in the convertible, you’ll be less likely to have strands of hair flying free of your scarf.
