Hair accessories are everywhere at the moment and I’m not going to lie I’m kind of here for it. They’re such a lovely detail to add to your hair and pull a whole look together. One I’ve been styling recently is a hair scarf on a scrunchie and I thought I would put together some of the looks in a post. So here are 4 easy ways to style a hair scarf scrunchie.
Low Pony Tail
If you want to go for something sleek, off your face and sophisticated then a low ponytail is a great go-to hairstyle. This is a great look if you want to use your hair scarf scrunchie to add some depth to what is quite a simple look.
To achieve this look, I have used some of the Soap & Glory Control Sleek Heat Activated Smoothing Cream* after washing my hair to create smoother and sleeker looking hair. All you need to do is add a small amount through damp hair, dry it and then style with some straighteners to activate the cream. This really does help to prevent flyaways and create a sleeker appearance.
And then all you need to is brush your hair back to the nape of your neck, then bring it together into a ponytail and then tie the tail together with your hair scarf scrunchie.
Simple but cute!

Hair Scarf Srunchie Braid
Another super easy hairstyle that you can recreate if you know how to braid. Instead of having your scarf flowing down, it is included within the braid to create a bohemian inspired look. This is also perfect at getting your hair off your face and a great spring/summer hairstyle.
To begin, I have repeated the same steps as the low ponytail above by pulling the hair to the nape of the neck and then tying the scrunchie. Now you want to split your hair and the scarf on the end of the scrunchie into three sections like you would a regular braid.
Then you want to start a braid with these three sections until you reach just below the bottom of the ends of your hair. I then secured the bottom of the braid with a clear elastic. Because I didn’t want you to be able to see the clear elastic, I then got the ends of the scarf that were included in the braid and I wrapped them around the clear elastic before tucking them in to hide the elastic.
I then separated the braid to make it appear thicker and pulled a few strands out from the front to frame the face more.
Low Messy Bun
I’ve created both low bun’s and high buns with a hair scarf scrunchie and for me, the low messy bun wins every time. A hair scarf scrunchie suits a low messy bun so much better because the scarf sits in just the right place. This hairstyle is such a versatile one as you can easily wear it for every day but you can also wear it to dress up a look.
For this low messy bun look, I have pulled some front sections down to frame the face which this part is totally optional and then I have gathered the remaining large part of hair around the back of my head just like I did with the previous two hairstyles.
Although this time I have sat the low bun a little bit higher than the previous two looks just so it sits better. Like a usual bun, I wrapped my hair round in a circle to create the bun shape and then I tied the scrunchie around it a couple of times to secure it.
I find with a messy bun it can sometimes a few attempts to get it how you want it so don’t worry about repeating it until you get it how you want. Then to finish I curled the front two sections to finish off the look.
Hair Scarf Srunchie Half Up Half Down
Probably my favourite of these four looks is this half up half down look. I absolutely love this. It’s just so pretty and romantic. Plus it’s really easy to do and takes hardly any time to put it together so this is great if you’re in a rush.
All you need to do is separate your hair into two sections. I sometimes do a smaller section on the top and longer on the bottom to have more hair down or I switch it up and do even sections. So section the two depending on what kind of look you wish to go for.
Similar to the low bun look, I have kept two circled strands from the front down to frame the face and add to the overall romantic feel. Then I have secured the top section together at the back of my head just above my ear with the hair scarf scrunchie.
