Fashion & Beauty Ethos: 2-Min Scarf Tutorial >> Video



[by request: the music I used for the video can be found here]

A big thank you to everyone who complimented me on my head-wrap I wore in this post!! I simply used an old scarf I purchased from Forever 21, and began to wrap until I found a style I liked. The scarf is roughly 3 yards and I find that it is the perfect length to achieve this look. You can also use scraps of fabric as well! I'm thinking this would be hot utilizing African Wax Prints!

  13. I will have to try this. I have that exact same scarf, but I'm mad I paid about $13 for it at Target. Too bad my city didn't have a Forever 21. They have great scarves that are reasonably priced.

  15. I'm definitely about to try this! Is your hair just in a bun underneath? I couldn't quite tell from the video.

  16. You are incredibly fabulous, and I've been picking up a lot of helpful tips from you through my natural journey (and a lot of other things in life lately!) I love your head wraps, and was wondering if you could show us how you do the E.Badu style. This could be it, it just looked a tad different and I'd love to try them all out! Thanks!

  17. So pretty! You look like you're straight out of Egypt with your head wrapped like that. This cultural style looks so good on you! Thanks for the tutorial.

  19. Nice look.

    I tie scarfs as well but I do mine the other way round i.e. put the scarf on from the front of your head rather than the back. This gives you a smooth front with a bulk at the back.

  20. Lovely! Thanks so much.
