Juneberry Beauty Part Two: Trendy Tresses ~ Wrap it Up!!

Since we are all about amping up our tresses for the warm-weather party season ahead, today we are focusing on how to take a HUGE Spring trend from runway to real-life in a few simple steps.

Turbans, head wraps, & silk scarves ruled the runway at Fashion Week (and quite frankly, any way to quickly cover-up a day of lack-luster locks seems pretty darn tempting to me!)

1. Fold your scarf into a long rectangle (you can do this with traditional square scarves or skinny scarves). Tie it behind your head, under your hair.

1.) Start with a large, square scarf (Vintage silk scarves work great because they're soft and not bulky.)  Fold one corner over to make a triangle.  Fold the point of your triangle to the middle and then fold one more time again, like so:


2.) Put the scarf around your head with the ends in the front, making sure the wrong side of the scarf (the part where you can see the folds) is against your head.  Tie it in a loose knot at the front (keep the whole scarf a little on the loose side, it will stay in place).  Tuck the ends behind/underneath the scarf:



All set!


1.) Start with the middle of the scarf on the back of your head under your hair. Then you simply cross the scarf in the front and then tie it back underneath again!

1.)  Simply take the square scarf and fold it down the middle to make a triangle. Then lay the center of the triangle around the top of your forehead, with the point in the back or off to one side, if you prefer. You may want to get someone to hold the scarf down on your forehead while you tie it in the back. It’s very easy for it to slip while you are tying the scarf. So you take the ends and tie it OVER the point of the triangle at the base of your neck. Just tie it in a regular old knot & you are all set!


What a perfect 'do for a beach BBQ or a backyard cookout...especially once the humidity to starts to soar or your locks are in need of a trip to the salon!  Okay, enough about hair & fashion already...we will be back to the Party-plannin' tomorrow!!  Have a great day!! Photobucket
