Thrifting treasure: silk scarf

silk scarf

I went thrifting the other day and found a silk scarf for 1.50€!

I've used it as a nice,lightweight nursing cover-up on a picnic but I originally bought it with the idea of using it as a headband scarf. I've seen some cute ideas on the web but whenever I try these styles, the scarf just wants to slide back and ends up falling off eventually. Are secret bobbypins involved in making these looks work? If you know the secret, please share it. I frequently have rather messy "mom-hair", quickly put in a ponytail, and I'd love to distract from it with a pretty scarf!

I used to wear scarves in my hair a lot, when I had longer hair. Since my hair is very fine and smooth, I used a couple of simple metal hair clips above each ear to hold the scarf on. It also seemed to help a lot to put the clips into wet hair - they just slid out of my dry hair. But if your hair is more wavy or textured, bobby-pins would probably work just as well.
