Step: Prep dry hair with refinish dry shampoo. It’s great for adding texture and grip, which will help to hold the scarf in place.

Step: Twist your hair into a messy bun at the crown and secure with bobby pins.

Step: Fold a long, narrow scarf into a three-inch-wide strip and place the middle against the nape of your neck.

Step: Pull the ends of the scarf up and cross them twice at the center of your forehead, just behind the hairline.

Step: Bring the ends back to the nape—so the fabric is partially overlapping—and knot together.
