Tie It Up! ~ Scarf Tutorial

It's one of those days Poodles.

The kind of day where you just don't feel like doing your hair!

Hair Shmair! I want to sleep longer!!
But you still have to enter the land of the living- AKA be seen in public! HA!

What do you do??

Tie it up!!! With a pretty scarf and a few simple tricks, your hair will be looking fashionably fabulous in no time!!


Here's a Poodle How-To Hairstyle:

1- Part the crown of your head into a "U" shape. Roll into a simple side or forward roll. (Check out my tutorial for some helpful hints on front rolls!) Or twist your hair into a pouf/pompadour.


2- Gather the rest of your hair into a high ponytail.


3- Take a bandanna or square scarf, and fold into a triangle shape.



4- Fold the pointed end down, and continue to fold in wide strips until the scarf is one long strip.




5- Place the scarf under your ponytail at the base of your head, and tie the ends together behind the roll or pouf you have created. Pull the scarf tight, just like tying your shoes! Shift the scarf slightly to one side if you'd like. Purely esthetics here, whatever you prefer!



6- At this point, release the ends and secure the scarf over your ears with bobby pins.

7- Taking up the ends again, tie into a simple knot or bow! It's that easy!

8- Spray your new-do with some hairspray, and you are ready to face the day!!

Hmmm… Let's try this with a vintage scarf and a bow...
Add a pink poodle skirt and some bakelite bangles,
and you are ready to go!!!
I cannot get over the beauty of my marbled pink bangle
from Brighter Bakelite!
If I could buy their entire stock, I would!!! LOVE!!!!
And I adore this skirt from Bettie Page Clothing!
It has all the essentials: pockets, a cute print, andddd...
…it TWIRLS!!!! Hehe!!!
Look at you Poodle!!  All stylish and cute!! WOOF!!


Tie it up Poodles!!! And off you go! Muah!!

    1. It's my boudoir/dressing room! Haha! And it was a mess!! It's in the middle of being overhauled and organized. The pink stripes were inspired from a Lady and the Tramp journal I have. ;) The barkcloth curtains are staying but the striped are moving into my guest bedroom. I cannot wait for it to be finished!

  4. Fabulous howto!!! Headscarves are a beloved must for me, too, whether I take them in a 40s or 50s direction. I second Janey, your dressing room is thoroughly marvelous!!! Oh, what I wouldn't give to have a room to devote just to my wardrobe/getting ready. Hopefully one day we'll have a house with enough space to accommodate that.

    1. When we bought this house, I of course wanted a vintage home ;), but my Husband wanted something easy for his commute. This house has four bedrooms and there are only 3 of us. Ridiculous! So he held the fourth bedroom out as a bargaining chip for me… move here and you get a dressing room! What girl could say no to that?! Hehe! ;)

    1. I am pretty fortunate! ;) It was a trade off- dressing room vs vintage home. I would've still picked a vintage home, but apparently I had to compromise. Ugh! Marriage! ;) Haha!
