View Full Version : Does anyone know how to tie/wrap a head-scarf for long hair?

My hair is getting rather long, it's past TB and becoming hard to contain. Does anyone have instructions for tying/wrapping hair in a scarf with long hair? ( I want to cover it at night )

I looked on youtube and can't find anyone with long hair who are wrapping it in a scarf.

I also looked at Tznius.com they have several styles with instructions, but it didn't look like the lady had long hair.

Thanks! :flower:

ETA: I had in mind that one could contain and cover long hair with a scarf without having an updo/bunning it. I think I may be incorrect.

Unless you have super super thick hair, this style of tying would probably work for you (They do it on a manaquin head, but I can attest that you can hold a lot of hair in it--or hair + other things if your hair is short)


I find this style to be very comfortable as well. I'd loosely coil my hair (like starting a cinnabun) but not pin it to get it all inside the pocket that's made by the scarf without tangling.

Thanks Cainwen, I guess I need to get a scarf that's big enough as well! :D

The tichels (scarves) on their website are fairly inexpensive, very very soft and easy to tie, but if you want to be even more inexpensive, go by a yard of thin fabric at a fabric store, cut it to a square (since fabric is sold in 45 or 60 inch widths) and hem the edges. Instant scarf in the perfect size. Just make sure it is a fairly thin fabric, or the knots become difficult to tie/untie

Do you think you might like a prettywrap?


I have one and it is comfortable :)

The prettywraps are all out of stock! :( I just checked out their website. The wraps must have been pretty popular to be sold out! I've been in the market for silk scarves.

I do a low bun at the nape of my neck, and wrap the loose ends of the scarf around the bun and tuck the ends in. I have a hard time wrapping my hair if it is not bunned. Thanks for the links; I would liek to learn some new wrapping techniques!

You can also try www.headcovers.com, they have silk scarves at good prices and give you scarf tying instructions with your purchase. They have lots of different prints too.
