I tried to explain the whole thing to Trista over Google Chat the other night and came up with this.
I sort of doubt she actually understood what I was talking about but apparently she did. And I can't really figure out a better way to explain with the exception of maybe weeding out some of the 'like's and 'sort of's. Here is a picture to help. You can ignore the fact that I am driving in it.
The whole thing seriously takes like 30 seconds and makes you feel like a princess. I've worn my hair like this the past two days and gotten tons of compliments. I have a feeling I'm going to be headband binging soon as well. Here are a few I'm currently lusting after.
Knotted Silk Headwrap, $38, Anthropologie
Ball and Chain Headwrap, $28, Nordstrom
