How to Tie a Headband


Headbands are one of the most versatile accessories a girl can have. From sprucing up your work from home outfit to finding a gorgeous headband to wear on your wedding day, there is no shortage of cute and trendy headbands to choose from.

One of our favorite aspects of headbands is that you can wear them in a variety of different ways. Take headscarves for instance; they can be worn as bracelets, purse accessories, or head or neck scarves. Or tie headbands, which can be tied and styled a few different ways. 

Today, we’ll walk you through how to tie a headband for a super cute look you can use to dress up any outfit.

How to Tie a Headscarf

With all the cute ways to wear a headscarf, it helps to know how to tie them, too! While generally, you can tie the headscarf into a simple knot and go, there are some other, more complex styles we’d like to give you some pointers on.

  1. Fold the scarf in half, forming a triangle.
  2. Roll the scarf the long way, from the long side to the point.
  3. Starting where your skin meets your hairline, wrap the scarf around the back of your head. The two ends should be in the front.
  4. Twist the ends around each other, then wrap them down to the back of your head.
  5. Finish by tying the ends in a knot and style the headband and hair as you see fit!

If you love the classic “Rosie the Riveter” headscarf tie look, we’ll show you just how it’s done!

  1. Fold the scarf in half, forming a triangle.
  2. With hair in a bun or ponytail, wrap the scarf around the back of your head. The two ends should be in the front.
  3. Tie the ends together tightly and in a double knot.
  4. At this point, there should be an excess of fabric sticking up behind your ponytail or bun. All you’ll need to do is tuck this extra fabric between the hair and the rest of the headscarf.
  5. If you love the pointy ends sticking up at the top, you can leave them. If not, simply tuck them off to the sides of the headscarf!

But really, learning how to tie a headband is simple, all you need to do is style your hair, place the tie headband where you want it, and tie a knot! If you’re rocking a side part, consider placing the knot on the part for a super cute look. Or, flip the knot to the back of your head and rock a wider headband look!
