Natural Hair Journey: 1950s Scarf Style

June 17, 2013


I guess you can say I was channeling Rosie the Riveter or Lucille Ball of “I Love Lucy,” with this look, which I wore to happy hour with friends this past Friday (Upon entering, a rowdy group of guys called me Minnie Mouse, which I can kind of see now. LOL.). I’m starting to see the benefits of protective styling, including the use of fun scarfs and headwraps, as I’m noticing less breakage and more growth. Yay!

This look was rather easy to achieve. To start, I sectioned my bangs off and tucked my hair in a loose French roll (nothing fancy, just trying to keep my hair down). I then took a square scarf, folded it in half diagonally to form a triangle, tied it Aunt Jemima style in front, formed the ends in a bow, folded the remaining flap over the bow and tucked it under. Give it a whirl!
