Headscarves: The Essential Accessory Trending Now

A modern spin on the versatile oldie-but-goldie.


Headscarves or headwraps have been worn for decades to preserve for our hair’s strength and shine. When it comes to maintaining our luscious locks, wrapping our hair is just like butter on toast: it’s a given. Believe it or not, headscarves prevent frizz while maintaining length and the magic is all done while we’re sleeping-result! During our so-called beauty sleep, the friction against the pillows can leave our hair fragile  and in a dry state. The only protection our hair needs is a silky headwrap to say ba-bye to split ends.

Making its name as the Queen’s favourite accessory, the silk square is becoming Spring’s most essential fashion statement. Versatility is what the headscarf does best, rocking a wrap, bandana, neck tie or top, we need one in every colour. From standout florals at Gucci or baroque-style prints at Versace, there are endless bold and beautiful designs to accompany every outfit. Take a white tee, a headscarf instantly elevates the at-first plain fit. Or wear in matching colour to a bikini at the beach to tame those flyaways and look flawless doing so. And how about a denim jacket and some ‘90s style shades? The possibilities are endless. 

As we fall head-over-heels once again for the silky sensation, the chic design proves to be the most fashionable and functional accessory out there. However you choose to style one this season, your Spring/Summer wardrobe will be thanking you.
