Head Scarf Tutorial with BooBoo Kitty Couture.

I know y'all love your tutorials, especially when they are to do with hair.
Whenever I wear my headscarfs out and about I get handfuls of compliments. Nobody knows that the headscarf is covering up a multiple of sins. Dirty hair being one of them!
My headscarf of choice is a handmade one by Boo Boo Kitty Couture. Made from thick cotton, they stay in  place without slippin' and a slidin'.
So with the help of BBKC, I am going to show you how to wear yours, even better than Rosie the Riveter.
Here's what you will need;

Firstly take a semi-circle shaped section of hair from the front and clip it out of the way. This will be used later to create interest and an authentic look.

Start to pile your hair up on top of your head and pin in place. If your hair has been pincurled or tonged (mine has) the curls will sit nicely on your head. If not, they might need some re-arranging once pinned. Make sure that the hair is pulled quite high up towards the back. This will help create the right shape and you won't be left with a hair bump sticking out the back of your head!

Now take your handmade (with love) Boo Boo Kitty headscarf in your hands and we shall begin.

Hold each end and place at the bottom of your head. Pull tight as you wrap the scarf round your head, over your ears and behind your sectioned piece of hair. Finish with a simple knot.

Secure either side with bobby pins.

Now, we can't leave that like that can we? 
Grab your pintail comb and hairspray and I will show you some variations of what you can do with your front section of hair....

1. Faux bangs, created with a 'hair sausage' simply by cutting a hair doughnut and creating the perfect tube shape.
2. A great style for when your hair has been freshly pin curled, and so easy to do...just grab and grip!
3. Mini Victory rolls. Add as many as you like!
4. No-one can go wrong with the classic quiff. The bigger the better!

Wait, is that another BBKC headscarf??!!
What you might not know is that each headscarf is reversible. More bang for your buck girls, each scarf is a mere £6. 
Eye's off Inka, this one is mine!

If like me you want to wear your handmade headscarf with pride, you can peruse Boo Boo Kitty's Etsy shop, with lots of variations of the trusty headscarf.
Maybe get a dress to match?
 The pretty lady behind the sewing machine is more than capable of making pretty fabrics hug your body, just the way you dreamed of!

Love as always, Lucille xx
