A headscarf is a fun way to add some colour to your get-up or show off that fab vintage fabric you love so much, but finding the right way to wear it isn't always so simple.

A headscarf is a fun way to add some colour to your get-up or show off that fab vintage fabric you love so much, but finding the right way to wear it isn't always so simple. That's why we tried and tested three esay-peasy styles - on a variety of hair types and lengths - so you can have a go for yourself at home. It's all about trial and error - experiment with each of these methods to find a style that suits you and your hair. And a little heads-up for the ladies amongst us with not-so-natural locks - it's a great way to cover up your roots, too!
