Dear Budget Fashionista,

My girlfriend and I are wondering how to keep a silk scarf on our heads. Scarves always slide off our heads. This unpleasant fact always hits me while I am vintage shopping in the Village, feeling like everything is right on the world until I catch a glimpse of myself in one of the store windows. My scarf always ends up on the top or crown of my head and the tie riding up the nape of my neck.

Help!

Scarfless in the City

Hey Scarfless—

Don’t fret.  This is what you do . . . go to the local Rite Aid or CVS and purchase a package of bobby pins (black if you have dark hair, bronze if you have brown, or clear if you can find them). Tie the scarf on your head ala Audrey Hepburn and use the bobby pins to secure your hair to the scarf behind your ears. This should do the trick!

You can also try using a little cheap hair spray (like All-net) on your hair before placing the scarf on your head.

Viva la Shopping,

The Budget Fashionista
