This is a tutorial for my busty ladies out there, but if you are not as busty you are welcomed to try this too.
P.S. I have decided to do these tutorials in snapshots to prevent confusion and long and drawn out tutorial videos. I personally believe trying out tutorials in snapshots makes the process easier and fun.
What you will need:
1. Strapless bra.
2. Long scarf of your choice.
Step 1: Put on your strapless bra and pick out the scarf you will be wearing. Step 2: Fold your scarf into a long triangle.
Step 3: Tuck the tip of the triangle into you the middle section of your bra.
Step 4: Tuck the excess scarf material inside your bra cups.
Step 5: Securely tie the back of the scarf to create the tension needed for the scarf to stay put.
I am back with more tutorials for the ladies who are in love with vintage silk scarves like myself. If you ladies are wondering where you can find your own scarves, visit your local thrift store or Goodwill. I purchased both of these scarves from Ebay, the thrift/vintage mecca!
Marilyn Monroe-Esque Vintage Scarf Tutorial
Step 1: Pin Curl or (in my case) two-strand Bantu Knot hair and pin down.
Step 2: Fold scarf into a long triangle.
Step 3: Fold, fold, fold until you get this skinny length of the scarf.
Step 4: Tie scarf toward the middle of your head.
Step 5: Tie bow and take pins out of curls in the front section of your head.
Step 6 (final step): Twist that section of hair to the side and pin, creating a cute curly bang.
Pin Curl Cutie Scarf Tutorial
Step 1: Pin up your hair anyway you desire, I love all my hair pushed and pinned toward the front.
Step 2: Pin, pin, pin away.
Step 3: Gently pull the hair in the front to create lots of volume.
Step 4: Fold scarf into a triangle.
Step 5: Fold, fold, fold until you get this :)
Step 6: Tie scarf toward the top of your hair, at this point you may smush some of your curls (I am not worried about this) but if you are at this point pin curl the hair that will be under the tie.
Step 7: Tie the bow to the side.
Step 8: If you love elongated bangs like me, take your pins and insert them vertically to allow hair to lay down properly.
Final Step: Add lippy and cute vintage earrings and, GO!
Today I wanted to create a post for the ladies who want to give their hair a rest, or the fashionista who needs something funky to add to her daily wardrobe. Well here is it, Classic.Raw.Beauty.'s very own Vintage Scarf Tutorial! This look is both fun, easy and super chic!
Step 1-2: Double fold scarf.
Step 3: Tie your scarf firmly to your head, under the hair you will be leaving out.
Step 4: Ease the scarf over your hair in the back. You may need to loosen the tie in the front to do this.
Step 5: Pull down excess hair in the front to create a bang.
Step 6: Twist and Tuck the ties in the front under the scarf.
Step 7: Gently pull on hair to create volume to fill out the front.
Step 8-9: Add your favorite lippy and big earrings and GO!

I would love to introduce to you a new initiative I have started on Facebook called Curvy Polaroid . It is a bit different from Classic.Raw.Beauty., in which it is a site dedicated to my creativity and inspirations. You all know that I love to empower women, especially those with curves. Daring to be different is what I thrive on and that is what Curvy Polaroid is all about. I would love if you beautiful followers supported my new project by liking the page, I promise you won't be sorry.
