Chinese New Year 2022: Chic updos you can wear to keep your cool in the heat

Hair scarves are our new favourite accessory for its versatility—whether worn around a bun, as a hairband, or even as part of your braid. Classically revered for its summer-ready status, the hair scarf has seen new iterations in the past few seasons, including the seriously useful scrunchie-scarf that’s making it easy for us to elevate our ponytails with no hassle at all.

This Chinese New Year, let us help you out if you’re looking for ways to upgrade your hairdo with minimal fuss. In our recent hair tutorial, we’ve incorporated the above-mentioned scrunchie-scarf for a cute bun that’s seriously easy to recreate. For those with longer locks, find out how you can repurpose your skinny hair scarf for a classy French braid.

Tip: Use dry shampoo to ensure your scalp doesn’t get greasy throughout the day. Complete your look with a generous amount of hairspray to keep those flyaways at bay (for both hairdos).

If you prefer a dressier hairstyle, opt for one of these ultra-feminine ribboned hairdos that are equally as easy to achieve.
