From the runway to Coachella to the workplace, heads carves have been making a major statement as of late. Whether you love a look that’s boho chic or a conscious and Badu-inspired one, there are a lot of perks to wrapping it up and not having to worry about your hair for the day.

The best part about head wraps? It’s not all about the look. When you’re running late and your roots are a mess, a scarf is a great way to wrap things up fashionably when there’s no time to do your ‘do.

These adorable wraps are cute and conservative enough to wear to work when you have to get out of the door in a hurry, but don’t want to look like you came straight from the bed.

The Knot

This look is perfect for a bun or puff. Wrap the scarf around the back of your head, tie a double knot in the front and tuck the fabric in the back.

The Turban

When your hair is short, or your roots are rough but you can let your hair hang down, the turban is perfect (and quick).

Wrap the scarf around the back of your head, bringing it to the front for a double knot. Then tuck the ends back into the back of the band so that your hair is covered.

The Bunny Ears

Great for covering up your edges (just push the scarf forward) when you don’t have time to get them to act right.

The Headband

Twist your head scarf until it’s a thin strip, then wrap the scarf around your head. Make a knot in the back and then tuck those ends.

The Roll Up

We love this look with long locks or box braids. Leave your scarf wide and wrap it around the back of your head. Make a knot, and then twist the ends together until they form a rope. Loop the rope around itself in a spiral, then tuck in the ends.

The Duku

An interpretation of this style from Ghana is glamorous and easy to tie. Simply wrap the scarf around the front of your head, then twist the ends at the back until they form a rope. Wrap the rope around front and tuck it in the back.

The Side Spiral

Keep your scarf wide and wrap it around the back of your head. Tie the fabric in a knot in the front, off center. Then twist the ends together, pull them to one side and tuck them in at the back.

The Bow

You will need sturdy fabric for this one. Wrap the scarf around the back of your head. Tie it into a knot in the front. Then tie it into a big bow, tucking the extra material in the front and the material sticking up at the back.
