2019 Hair Accessory Trends: The Scarf

Posted by Jules Annen on

I had a visceral reaction when the hair scrunchie resurfaced. There are some trends need not repeating. However, connect a scarf to a scrunchie = fashion innovation at its finest.

2019 is taking hair scarfing (it’s a word. maybe.), to the next level from bows, to bunny ears to bands.

A Brief History of Scarves
The modern scarf has its origins all the way in Ancient Egypt, where the first recorded scarf was used by Queen Nefertiti. 

Originally used for the function of staying clean (a la the handkerchief), it wasn’t until the 19th century that scarves became a sought after fashion accessory. French design house, Hermes designed the first ready-to-wear graphic carré (square scarf)  in 1837 and it's been an essential accessory ever since.
