Looking Chic With No Hair

After I began to lose my hair, I immediately went out to my local vintage stores and bought a handful of scarfs. I got different colors, prints, and sizes. The last thing I wanted was to look like a "cancer patient," I wanted to be able to go out and look healthy and normal. I experimented a bit and finally figured out how to tie the scarf that worked for me.

Here it is, step by step:


You will need a regular squared scarf (Preferably thin)


Fold diagonal to form a triangle. 


Place the scarf behind your head, with third triangle pointing at the forehead. 


Bring the outer corners to the front.


Tie the 2 corners making a simple knot. 


Tuck the center triangle point behind the knot that was just made. 


Last, tie a bow with the two remaining corners.


The end result should look like this, you can always adjust and make the bow bigger or smaller depending on your preference. 

I wear my head scarf everyday since I lost my hair, it makes me feel great when I get compliments from strangers that don't know I'm fighting cancer. I refuse to let any disease take my identity away, and no other patient should either.
