Have you spotted the latest accessory trend on Instagram yet? Silk scarves are now braided into the hair. We'll show you how it works.
Silk scarves are becoming popular again and will accompany us into the summer. The trend accessory, also known as a foulard, is versatile. It looks particularly beautiful in the hair – whether as a simple hairband or headscarf. A video on Instagram now shows how beautiful a silk scarf looks in a braided pigtail.
Instagram user Jeanne Dordain regularly posts video tutorials on romantic hairstyles on the platform. In one of her latest videos, she shows how easy it is to braid a shawl into a braid.
First, Jeanne gathers a strand of hair in the middle of the back of her head and ties the scarf around the upper end of the strand. Then she takes two strands from the side in her hand.
Since a classic plaited braid usually needs three strands, she uses the hair section with the scarf as the third strand. Now she braids a normal braid out of the three parts. She doesn't pull the strands too tight so that the braid lies loosely.
About halfway through her hair length, she stops braiding and ties the silk scarf around all her hair again. She curls the ends of her hair to create a romantic look.
A classic silk foulard is square and embroidered with a wide variety of patterns. There are high-quality designer silk scarves with the logos of well-known fashion labels. But the cheaper versions also offer beautiful designs and colors.
For example, decide on a scarf that goes well with the rest of your outfit in terms of color or that creates an exciting contrast. If you want the full range, you can also combine the scarf with other popular hair accessories such as hair clips.
