Think Green, (Grace) Kelly Green

What is the most fabulous solution to greasy hair, no time, and an urge to slow down your beauty product consumption?

A HEAD SCARF

Nothing is more glamorous than a head scarf. Formally used by Jackie O, Grace, and many other classic icons, this look has been reduced to strictly beach attire. I say it is time it saw the light again.

My hair is quite blonde and requires a daily shampooing or else it goes a shade darker because of the grease. Gross, I know. I will wash it daily because dry shampoo/ baby powder doesn’t do the job for me. But one sunny day I really couldn’t be bothered to wash it, so I popped on a scarf. I don’t have any neat silk scarves (vintage mission bells anyone?) so I was wearing a large linen one. Though a touch too large, I felt kind of cool, which is not a common feeling.

Jackie O, non? (not quite)

I promised myself then and there that I would go on a hunt for a few vintage silk scarves. I can wear them as a way to save shampoo and the earth as well as reimplement old Hollywood glamour (must add sunglasses for full effect).

What do you think? Silly? Or fabulous?
