When choosing how to tie a scarf, always keep in mind your appearance. Hair should not be covered completely by a scarf on people with round faces, it should be thrown casually around the face and framed with a few curls. Redheads are better not to wear scarves and shawls of red and pink shades. This is because the colour of the hair and the colour of the product will merge, but dark colours will suit perfectly.
