Tying Your Chemo Head Scarves
Avoid getting in a knot!
With a little bit of practise you will be able to master each style effortlessly. Our chemo head scarves are secured to a 100% cotton jersey hat so that the scarves do not slip off your head when your arms get tired. Simply pop on the hat and that's the first step covered! Take a look through our guide to learn more about how to tie a headscarf for cancer patients
STYLE 1 - LEVEL: EASY
After you put the hat on, drape the chemo scarf over the head, leaving the two ends hanging either side by your shoulders. Pick the ends up and tie them in a simple knot at the back. This look is great for people who are used to longer hair because it simulates a ponytail at the back of the head.
STYLE 3 - LEVEL: EASY
After tying the ends of either of the above styles in a simple knot, tuck the ends back over upon themselves – this creates a bow-like style and helps keeps the ends shorter.
STYLE 5 - MODERATE
Fold the scarf in three so it forms a band across the forehead and the two ends hang either side of your face. Bring the two ends around the back of the head and tie firmly in a simple knot. This will hold the scarf in place whilst you start twisting! Take both ends and twist them around each other. Keep twisting until the rope like cord starts to curl up into itself. Next, twist the cord round as if creating a “bun” or rosette. With the remaining ends of the chemo scarf, push them part the way through the centre of the rosette to secure it in place.
STYLE 2 - LEVEL: EASY
Fold the chemo scarf so that it creates a “band across the front of the head, pull the two ends towards the back and tie in a simple knot. The folds give additional padding to the hair line and is suitable for those who feel exposed without the weight of their hair around the face.
STYLE 4 - MODERATE
Fold the head scarf in three so it forms a band across the forehead and the two ends hang either side of your face. Bring the two ends around the back of the head and tie firmly in a simple knot. This will hold the scarf in place whilst you start twisting! Take one end in turn and twist it so that it forms a tight rope like cord. Then bring this around to the front of the head and tuck the end securely into the band at the front of the chemo hat. Next, do the same with the remaining end. You can secure this with a pin if you feel you need a bit of added grip.
