Quick and Easy Hair Bun and Scarf Tutorial
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
I almost feel a bit guilty writing this but when I posted this photo on Instagram a few weeks back, a couple of you guys reached out and asked how to do this hair style. It's so easy and quick, and I'm sure a lot of you guys can work out how to do it from the photo alone but I aim to please (especially those who ask for it) so here is my quick tutorial.
I really love doing this cute bun look when I'm having a bad hair day (usually with second day hair) or when I come back from the gym or yoga and I haven't had time to wash my hair. Like I said, this bun is usually best with texturized hair or second day hair - not so great with freshly washed hair.
- Dry Shampoo: I love using Eva NYC Freshen Up Dry Shampoo and also their Forget Me Knot Dry Conditioner. It's great for post workouts, has a great smell, and I don't get any of that white powdery residue in my dark hair.
- Spin pins: I use three of the short ones by Goody and they keep my hair up all day, no adjustments needed! They're miracle workers for sure! If you have longer hair, I recommend two of the longer ones - they do the trick as well!
- Silk scarf: I used my favorite Coach scarf but you can use any silk scarf that you have handy. Just make sure it's not too bi for your bun.

- Spritz a bit of dry shampoo into the roots of your hair to add volume. If you have it, use dry conditioner on the ends of your hair as well.
- Twist your hair to the back and create a twisted bun. Secure it by using three small spin pins (if you have short hair like me) or two long spin pins (if you have long hair).
- Take your silk scarf, and fold it in half, triangle length. Scrunch the scarf from the middle of the long end of the triangle to the opposite point so that you get a long shape. Place on top of the bun and tie it at the bottom of the bun (see above). If you have a lot of scarf left over, twist both ends again and tie it again.
That's it! Easy, right?
