Lucky for us, Kelly Rowland had modeled several looks to steal. Just this week the singer was spotted heading to a taping of U.K.'s X-Factor in this colorful head wrap that looked pretty cute.

First, ensure that your tresses are flat underneath, because a bumpy scarf will lose its sleek look. Frayed scarf edges, old school bandanas and cotton scarves are complete no-nos. They don't screan “fa-shion.” Silk or satin are the best options to give your mane breathing room and avoid split ends.

Try looping your scarf in a bantu knot at the back of your head, or, for longer length scarves, tie it in a knot at the back and allow the remaining fabric to lay over your shoulder. Kelly never leaves home without a large pair of hoop earrings and we love this look.

You can also wear a vibrant headscarf under a fedora like Kelly did back in September. Make sure your scarf is vivid enough to look like an intentionally styled look. Keep it playful!
