As you already know – you will have to overlap the left section into the centre and continue doing the same – right over the centre, left over the centre – overlapping the sections of the hair.

. When you reach the nape of your neck, go in for the usual braid, or leave a lump of your locks untied.

. Take the scarf and loop it around that part of the hair and tie it down with an elastic band.

. If your scarf feels loose, then knot it over to get a better look.

. Top knots are your ready-to-go alternatives
