Scarf Side-Braid

  4. Take the braid you created in step 3 along with the rest of your hair and tie it into a ponytail on the back of your head using an elastic band. The last bit of silk scarf at the end can be used to wrap around the elastic band, just secure it by pulling it under itself.

Silk Scarf Wrapped Bun

Half Braid Updo

  1. Starting at the top of your head, create a french braid, and stop at the crown of your head. Secure the braid with elastic and tie the middle of the scarf around it.
  2. Tie up a small section of hair right under the braid, cross this section of hair over the ends of the braid, then weave this section of hair around the ends of the scarf to create a loose braid, secure the hair end with elastic.
