In this heat, sometimes your best hair option is to simply wrap it up. It’s the ultimate ‘do for when you can’t even, but still want to look fly AF. This hairstyle is a super hack for many reasons. For starters, your wrapping options are basically limitless and every time you use a new scarf, or twist your wrap differently, it’s a cheat code for a brand new style—without even having to touch your hair! We went on the ‘gram to find some of the cutest ways to wrap it for a shot of can-do inspo.
Create a top knot with fabric and eliminate the chance of flyaways.
HEAD BAND WRAP
This is a super hack when growing out bangs, or when you just don’t want to be bothered with hair in your face.
TIE IT UP
Leave locks out and tie your wrap together with an off-center, perfectly-imperfect bow.
A loose turban style gives hair room to breathe in the heat, and most of all, keeps you cool.
Join your wrap in this crossover diamond pattern to support a high pony, giving you length for days.
Tie your wrap as you would a low bun. Pro tip – Experiment with edges for added depth.
KEEP IT CLOSE
A tight wrap can totally change up a wrap look, and it’s practical—we bet this won’t shake lose no matter where you’re going.
There’s nothing kitsch about this bow—choose an understated color and let the shape standout for a wrap that’s totally editorial.
LET IT DOWN
Your wrap doesn’t have to stay up! Let your fabric down, peaking under your ears for an insta style switch.
ROCK STAR BAND
A single band wrapped around your crown gives a timeless 70s rocker vibe.
Experiment with your wrap twist pattern, creating a mini-bow and accents for a look truly your own.
TO THE SIDE
Change the position of your wrap with your mood.
Think of this as the wrap volume equivalent, where bigger is still better.
Want to know how you’d look in a new color? This is one way to test the waters, in as long as it takes to tie it.
Loose texture meets the subtle chic of a wrap for the best of both worlds.
A wrap can add a little something without being the star of the show. We love how it’s best supporting lead to these stellar curls (how-to lives here)!
