    Ask her in the comments!

    But my best guess would be that it's wrapped twice around her head, then the ends are tied in a bow on top, then the tails of the bow are artfully tucked into the second wrapping around her head. Some of the looking good probably has to do with the type of fabric used, but a lot of probably has to do with practicing and getting it right. Go ahead and practice, and don't try to get it too perfect, a lot of the beauty is in the way the fabric lays on its own in the bow.

    WAIT

    On second look, I think she might be wearing a stretchy cap as an underlayer with the scarf just tied once around her head farther back. I would go with a stretchy hijab cap or fabric bathing cap type thing, then wrap what looks like crepe backed satin or something like that over it. Start with the middle of the scarf at your nape and wrap upwards, tie at the top and tuck in the tails like I suggested up above. You will want something not too drapey or else the bow and tucks won't stand up like that. That's also what makes me think she's wearing an under-cap, because it's hard to get it to lay that smoothly in front if it's not a fluid fabric, but if it's that fluid it won't stand up like that up top. (also if you look very carefully, the front looks ever so slightly like a different shade of white than the big bow and wrap part.)

    Thank you Okay, I'm trying it now. It's a cool idea because with that I can go to the supermarket with oiled head and nobody sees it and I look cool I have different scarfs, longer, shorter and different fabrics.

    I would ask her in the comment but since she has almost 100.000 subs, I don't think she can answer all comments. I have only 2000 and can barely answer every comment.

    I have tried 4 different variations with folding the bow under... it doesn't look as good as hers but I think it needs practice. It's a really good idea to hide greasy hair. Much better than my beanies and caps I wear in such situations. It looks a bit more dressed up while a cap and a beanie look very sporty and look stupid with a classy chanel-style jacket, which I wear often. I could imagine my black silk scarf like that to go nice with a black classy jacket. But only when wrapped nicely like she did it, which I'm definitely far from being able to do... LOL!

    I'm thinking it is a long rectangular scarf, not square. And I also assumed it was wrapped twice around, starting with the middle of the scarf in front of her forehead, wrapped around back and then brought back towards the front to tie the bow. But it also makes sense that it could be a cap underneath so I am pretty stumped. I guess the only way to know for sure is to ask, she may even make a tutorial.

    You can also search for videos on tichels, there are dozens of variations on how people wrap theirs, and I also find it very beautiful.

    This video has four awesome examples with pashminas, but there are tons more out there using square scarves and lighter silk scarves.

    Yes, it looks somehow like there's a cap underneath. I have looked closer in HD and the fabric above her forehead looks slightly different.
