2. Tied into a bow

Bows aren't just for kids anymore! Put your hair into a high pony or a half-up, half-down look before securing the silk scarf to the elastic, then tie it in a bow!

3. Wrapped around a hairband

If you have an old hairband lying around the house, this is the perfect way to give it new life: roll your silk scarf into a thin strip, then wrap it carefully around the hairband from one end to the other to transform your look!

7. Woven into a braid

A creative way to mix up your braid—replace one of the sections with a silk scarf! Try both French and Dutch braids for different twists on this trend, and don't be afraid to use bobby pins to hold the scarf in place if it starts to slip!
