Aren’t you done wearing that worn out dupatta every time you head out in the sun? This summer, walk and ride in style, as Sandra Edmonds brings you five super chic ways to tie your scarf and bandana which will not only protect your hair from the scorching heat but also make you look dapper and a definite head-turner!

The pirate look 
(For a laidback sit-out lunch)
Fold your scarf diagonally in half across a flat surface.
Take the wider end of the scarf, pick it up carefully and make sure you put it to your head. 
Tie a double knot towards the side, at the back while making sure the bandana is not too tight or too loose. 
It should fit so it doesn’t fall off or down over your eyes, and not cut off your circulation either. 

Turban-inspired look 
(For an afternoon ride or a club night)
A scarf of longer length than width would be best suited to achieve this look. 
Place the scarf on your head in the centre, and pin it up using bobby pins using the arch of your eyebrows as guidelines.
Hold the two separate ends of the scarf towards your forehead and twist it around twice
Take the ends around the back of your head and tuck in any loose ends. 
Pair it up with a bindi to add uniqueness to this Indi-Boho look.

The Arab look 
(For a long walk in the sun)
Fold the scarf diagonally.
Place it on your head with the wider end in front.
Roll the folded side twice.
Take the right end from behind your head and tuck it in the roll.
Repeat the process on the left side.
The remaining part of the scarf should be rolled and tucked, and you’re done.

The scarf rose look 
(For an early evening walk with your girlfriends) 
For this look, you would need a square scarf. Fold your scarf diagonally in half. 
Tie the ends in a double knot.
Take one loose end of the scarf under the knot. Place the remaining end under and over the end, twisting them around each other.
Place the knot on top of the twisted end and release the knot so that it rests over the twisted ends. 
Pull the scarf quickly in opposite directions.
In the middle, the scarf shapes into a rose.
Tie it around your head with a double knot behind and tuck the loose ends under the scarf.

The modern bow turban look 
(For a ride or a walk)
Fold your scarf into a triangle.
Place it over your head. 
Cross the longer ends at the back of your head and bring them to the front in the middle.
Tie this into a knot and then into a bow
Shape the bow to attain perfection and tuck the loose ends under the edges of scarf.
Shift the scarf to the side so that the bow is towards the side.
