Here is the finished look, and isn’t it adorable? I love how the hair tie is concealed by the scarf so that you can’t see it and how the scarf is gorgeously woven into my hair.

I also really like how the ends of the scarf hang down at the bottom, as this is a really pretty element.

If you liked this look give it a go for yourself!
