In this hair tutorial, I’m going to show you how to upgrade your messy bun with a scarf.

We’re going to be incorporating the scarf into the bun itself. Let me show you what to do!

Tools and materials:

  • Scarf
  • Hair elastic
Tying hair with scarf

1. Tie hair with scarf

Start by pulling all your hair to the back of your head.

Then take an elastic and thread the scarf through it.

Tie your hair into a ponytail with the elastic which will incorporate the scarf too.

2. Create a bun

After you’ve pulled your hair out through the hair elastic once, don’t bring it all the way through the next time.

Only pull it halfway out to create a bun.

3. Pull on hair

Gently pull on the hair above your bun to make the hairstyle more loose and voluminous.

Wrapping hair

4. Wrap hair around

Bring the bottom part of your hair around the top of the bun, wrapping it around. Tuck it under the elastic beneath the bun.

If you want to be the second, give this hairstyle a go for yourself, and let me know what you think.
