I am not too sure where to place this topic Smiley

I've been wanting to know how to wrap a scarf around my head like the women of the 40s.  I bet it's simple!  And wondering what size scarf they used.

Any help would be so appreciated, thank you!!

We used a square headscarf folded in half and then just used a square knot.  Some people who were "fancy" used a knot like you tie in a sailor collar's tie...have no idea what it is called.  In the 60's we started using a longer headscarf and often we just did a loose pull through of the scarf (no knot and then threw the ends over our shoulders.   (By the way, I wasn't born until the 50's and this carried over well into the 60's.)

Thank you so much for the directions!  I've always loved the look.  I just didn't know where to find 'em Smiley  And, heck, everything comes and goes in fashion.  So, who knows ... maybe, the look was in the BC! Wink

Thank you!!

Well, in the 60's they did it to protect their "ratted" hairstyles..those weren't too cute when they were windblown!
