Let's first talk about the style, hairstyles changed in the 20s, that was the first bob. We're thankful for that, it went for a looser curl, a little, little more relaxed than the previous time. So, I'm going to show you a few head coverings for the 20s that just protected the hair. That was the whole purpose of a scarf then. So, we're going to start at the top of the head, "And go ahead and hold that for me". We're going to kind of roll the corners and we're going to tie it to one side. That's one way. The whole purpose then of wearing scarfs was to protect your hair at night and to keep your hair scent. They didn't run to the hair salon like we do today. So, that's one way to wear it for the 20s. The second way is you can go ahead and tie it. Bows were becoming huge, the flapper style was in, big influence. So, we're going to tie a knot and then, make a bow. During that time they experimented. They started to get a little bit looser with fashion. So, this is a great way to accentuate, protect the hairstyles, keep the loose curls in; the pin curls started in that era. That's the second way. Third way is we're just going to simply loosen this up and let it drape. Now, we're going to let it hang. Very chic, very cool and that at, at that time, scarfs were a luxury and they came in many colors and many fabrics. So enjoy. Three ample, simple ways to wear scarf like in the 1920s.
