Scarf Braid

A scarf braid is a simple way to add color to your hairstyle while making your hair look thicker at the same time. This chic, carefree summer style offers you a new way to wear your favorite scarf and is a great choice for alfresco dining or a day out on the water.

DIFFICULTY LEVEL

Easy

IDEAL HAIR LENGTH

Long

HAIR EXTENSIONS NEEDED?

No, but you can use a ponytail extension if required.

ASSISTANCE NEEDED?

No

ACCESSORIES

You can use any scarf to add color and style to a plain braid, but light silk scarves are best, and choose a length that is close to your hair length.

TRY THIS

If you have a longer scarf, you can tie it around your head as a headband first before adding it to your braid. You can also add a scarf into any braid to make your hair look thicker. Try it in a braided bun, a crown braid, or Heidi braids.
