Wrap It Up Retro Style

Whether you're sitting on a windy beach or you're having a bad hair day, sometimes you just want to throw you're hair up to get it out of the way.  As much as I love the top knots, messy buns, and the classic ponytail, these styles can get a little boring.  Luckily, I have just the trick that will keep your hair off your face and make you look effortlessly cool--headscarves!  Headscarves first made an appearance in the 1930s and have reemerged many times throughout fashion history.  They have appeared atop the heads of famous actresses like Audrey Hepburn and in propaganda, specifically the "We Can Do It" poster.  Now all of these looks are coming back in style with designers such as Karen Walker, Marc Jacobs, and Nicholas and Christopher Kunz and fashionistas like Nicole Richie taking charge.  Take a look at the following headscarf styles that are coming back in style:

As you can see there are many different ways to wear headscarves, and all of them are adorable!  The fun part is choosing from all of the different colors and patterns headscarves can come in.  You can always find vintage scarves as well, which will make your look even more unique.  Headscarves make a messy bun or long, wavy locks look chic whether you're into bohemian styles or looks right off the runway.  Experiment with different scarves and have fun with how you wear them.  You'll be sure to get a blast from the past this summer!
