If you're looking to be stylish but still get protection from the sun, donning a headscarf is the way to go. Having a bad hair day or simply want to add style to your 'do? No problem; headscarves keep your hair under wraps while still allowing you to look chic. And many styles are cute and easy to execute.

The Hollywood Head Wrap

This cute style pays homage to the glam Hollywood celebs who put their coifs in scarves to keep them looking perfect. For a Hollywood head wrap, fold a square scarf diagonally so it looks like a triangle. Place the center of the flat edge in the middle of your hairline then crisscross the ends under your chin. Bring them to the back of your neck and tie them in a knot. Slip on a sexy pair of big sunglasses and you'll look totally stylish.

The Sexy Turban

Add a little color to your outfit by rocking the sexy turban look. To achieve this trendy style, fold a long scarf in half lengthwise so that it looks like a long rectangle. Place the middle of the scarf at the nape of your neck. Keep one end of the scarf in each hand, making sure it is under your hair. Bring the ends back up to your forehead and tie them in a cute knot, creating the turban portion. Push the excess scarf underneath the wrap and you're good to go.

Low Bun Wrap

Hide your hair while still looking fabulous in the simple low bun wrap. To start, put your hair in a low ponytail then fold a square scarf into a triangle. Situate the center of the straight side of the scarf in the middle of your hairline. Bring the ends of the scarf back behind your head and under your ponytail -- tie it tight. Now, twist your ponytail and the ends of the scarf together to create a super stylish bun. Tuck any extra hair or fabric under the scarf, and you've got a totally enviable look.


Look totally adorable and add a pop of color to your ensemble by rocking the scarf headband. Fold a square scarf diagonally into a triangle then roll it until it looks like a flat rectangle. Or, if you have a long scarf, simply fold it until it becomes a flat, thin rectangle. Flip your head upside down so that your hair hangs down then place the center of the scarf on your forehead. Bring the ends to the back of your neck and tie them in a knot. Get right-side up again and adjust the scarf so that it sits right behind your hairline and on your hair. Flip the ends over your shoulder and you've got a simple way to give your coif some glam.
