The silk hair scarf is the hair accessory to invest in this spring

Soft, feminine and versatile

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / August 24 2022

If there’s a season that we look forward to the most, it’d have to be spring. 

Well, technically the last three weeks of spring and the first three weeks of summer to be precise. But pedantics aside, so long as winter’s over, we’re happy campers. 

Our beauty routines are all set to take the season by storm too. We’ve got our eyes on freshly-scented spring perfumes, and we’re already talking our colourists into giving us a hair tan

But ever since Copenhagen Fashion Week, and the holiday photo dumps of celebrities and influencers in the northern hemisphere, we’ve been daydreaming about all the silk hair scarves we’re going to accessorise with. 

How to wear a silk scarf

A simple silk scarf can enhance any head of hair. It straddles the realms of utilitarianism form and luxury fabric, making it the perfect companion to a casual or formal spring ensemble. Regardless of the occasion, or your print of choice, you’re set to look like an expert accessoriser with one of these wrapped around your pretty head.




How you decide to wear yours though is entirely up to you. Embellish a practical ponytail with a stream of silk, fasten it under your chin, or tie it at the nape of your neck to protect your blowout from the seasonal winds. You could also channel icons of the ‘90s and knot it at the back of your head, letting your strands flow freely to frame your face. Our advice? Ditch the scrunchie on your wrist and tie your scarf to your handbag or the belt loop of your trousers for easy on-the-go styling that’ll elevate your look whenever and wherever you are.

Briar Clark got her start in the media industry in 2017, as an intern for Marie Claire and InStyle. Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
