How to Tie a Rosette in 3 Easy Steps

The short hair solution to the giant bun look!

I came up with this look when I began missing the volume I used to have on the top of my head.  I cut my hair very short recently and am loving it, but every once in a while I miss having all that body. Now I can do this to balance my outfits, and feel just as awesome.

You don’t need short hair, anyone can rock a rosette.  Tying one is very simple, and the finished product looks fabulous.

First you need a scarf or tie of any length, as long as it is long enough to fit around your head and then some. Any ordinary scarf will work. I used my absolute favorite Marc by Marc Jacobs black bandana blanket/scarf, it is the size of a sarong but very thin.

Wrap the scarf around your head.

Optional: tie it in a basic knot to hold it in place.

Step 2

With both hands, twist the scarf in opposite directions around itself. You will know you are doing this right when the scarf feels tight and stays in place.

Step 3

Continue twisting the scarf up and around itself into a circle on top of your head.  Tuck in the ends.
