How-to: Sassy One-Minute Braid

It was a rather windy day here in San Francisco. We had a scarf, and a Sugar girl with some gorgeous, albeit overly wind-blown long hair. Instead of doing a regular old ponytail or braid, we opted for something just a little different. By using a scarf worn as a headband, we were able to weave her hair into a braid and tie off at the end — what a laid-back and sassy look.

To check out our office handiwork and get instructions on achieving this simple braided hairdo, just


  • Step one: Make a long, lightweight scarf into a headband by wrapping it over your head. Secure by tying one or two knots near the nape, letting the “tails” from the scarf dangle.
  • Step two: Separate hair into three sections for the braid. Using both tails from the end of the headband, twist them around the middle section so that it becomes one section in itself.
  • Step three: Braid your three sections (as seen in first picture above). When you are almost at the end, leave yourself enough room to secure your braid by tying off. No other tools required!

I like this but I have to wonder if my thick hair would eventually eat the scarf.
