There’s no denying Tutti has amazing hair. It’s as pure in colour as a unicorn’s mane, defies gravity and grows vertically, like the spikes of a snow-white pineapple. But it’s her headwear that has people turning heads. For as long as she can remember she’s been tying all manner of scarves, donning hats and even in the ’80s used to thread scarves around these weird, padded headbands (see pic below, top left) which she still managed to make look fabulous.
As she’s got older, the bows have got bigger and her scarf collection has expanded to epic proportions, which makes it especially easy to spot her in a crowd. I can’t tell you how many people compliment Tutti on her ‘turban’ every day, or how many have asked her how she ties it. SO, you’re in for a treat. Here are nine simple steps to Tuttifying yourself.
Take a long, cotton scarf. Cotton works best because it’s light to wear, easy to tie and the bow stays tight unlike silk / satin. The scarves Tutti wear are about 1.5 metres long (but then, Tutti likes a giant bow).
Start with the middle of the scarf against the back of your head
Bring the two halves of the scarf together
Tie scarf firmly at the hairline (or wherever you think it looks good)
Make a loop with the lower length of scarf (the one closest to your forehead) in preparation for tying the bow
Bring the loop across, and place the other length of scarf over the top of the loop
Push the length of scarf under the loop to create a bow
Make sure both loops are now even and fan out the bow. You can adjust the bow by pulling on the knot in the middle.
Smile your most dazzling smile, and head out the door. Consider yourself TUTTIFIED!
