Turban scarf tying guides for hair loss - parts 2 & 3

Monday, 22 October 2018 12:48:04 Europe/London

Here are follow up parts 2 & 3 of our stylish headscarf guide to tying beautiful turbans to disguise hair loss and create great fashion looks. The very lovely Silvia Amorosino over on Instagram takes us through 2 more elegant tying styles that will transform your thinking about turbans. (@silvia_amorosino)  Take a look at her colourful feed to see how she changes her look depending on her day and experiments with different prints.  Accessories are another important element from the right lipstick shade to drop tassle earrings to accentuate colour.

In the videos seen here Silvia is wearing a long silk tying scarf (dimensions of 110 x 180 cms or 43" x 71").  It is important to consider the size of your scarf with regard to the tying effect you want to achieve.  The bigger the scarf the more volume you will create when tying around your head. Most women wish to recreate volume - width and height - to disguise defined head shape.

However be aware of the scarf fabric you select - the more fabric wound around your head will mean the warmer it is to wear.  Not so bad at this time of year Autumn / Fall the temperatures are cooling but don't forget about central heating and wearing your hair loss turban indoors.

A 'paper' silk scarf of a lighter weight, (the heavier rolled edge silk scarves are often too slippy to wear), will tie up with good volume and not make your head overly hot.  Cotton and open weave viscose scarves also tie up well.  The minimum scarf width we'd suggest to comfortably cover your head (front to back) is 50 cms (19.5"), the length can be as long as you'd like it.  The more fabric the more secure you'll be able to tie it, so don't be overwhelmed by a bigger scarf, it will mean you can tie it once and forget about it.

Here are some of our current head scarf favourites from the collection
