Head Scarves from Headcovers
The head scarf is a highly versatile fashion accessory that adds glam to any outfit while providing protection and coverage for women dealing with hair loss. Many women wear scarves to protect their head from bitter cold or blazing heat. A head scarf is also an ideal, lightweight, and super comfortable way to insulate a sensitive scalp while you sleep.
Whether you’re already a scarf lover or are a first-time buyer, you’ve come to the perfect place. We have scarves galore in cotton, bamboo, silk, knit, chiffon, satin, velvet and more – in nearly every color of the rainbow and an array of fun and beautiful patterns.
Scarves for Women with Alopecia or Cancer
At Headcovers, we understand how challenging it is to cope with a diagnosis of cancer, alopecia and other conditions that cause hair loss. That’s why we’ve lovingly designed a large selection of head scarves to provide full head coverage and totally chic style all at once.
Pretty and versatile, our head scarves completely conceal hair loss and are comfortable against sensitive scalps to keep your head warm during chemo sessions or cool through a sweaty summer. From pre-tied styles in soft cotton and bamboo to elegant, flowing scarves in silk, chiffon, and satin, a headscarf will help you look great and feel better – no doctor’s office required.
A Guide to Our Luxurious Scarf Materials
Silk, cotton, bamboo - oh my! Headcovers believes that high quality materials are just as important as style when it comes to crafting impeccable product. Plus, our fabrics are chosen with hair loss in mind, meaning they feel good against an irritated, bare, or sensitive scalp.
There’s nothing quite like silk, a fabric that feels more liquid than solid. Known for its beautiful drape and slight sheen, silk has a knack for making the wearer feel instantly glamorous. Due to the low density of fibers, silk is lightweight and has been valued for thousands of years for its longevity. For a sleek, single-hued look, try the Solid Silk Square Headscarf. However, we’re partial to the fanciful prints of this Pure Silk Headscarf as well.
Cotton is an ideal fabric to keep close to the skin, because it’s breathable - you can trust that it won’t keep the heat packed against your skull. It isn’t capable of holding an electric charge, so no static woes here, either. We love cotton for being great at absorbing dye, which means that your cotton headscarf is sure to be vibrant and pleasing to the eye. Try our Oversized 100% Cotton Woodblock Hand Stamped Head Scarves for a bohemian groove, or the Pre-Tied So Simple Head Scarf Covering for a no-slip solution to keeping your head covering in place.
A champion of sore skin everywhere, bamboo’s cool, soothing natural properties make it ideal for anyone needing an extra touch of comfort in everyday life. It’s hypoallergenic and antibacterial, offering UV protection as well as a supple drape. It’s easy to wash, too, which is why we’re sure it’ll quickly become a favorite in your hair scarf collection. The Bamboo Slip On Scarf is a great option for first-time scarf wearers, providing instant sophistication, no fuss required. Also check out the Bamboo Scarf Beanie for a fusion of the casual beanie cap and a voluminous, gathered scarf.
Head Scarf Life Hacks
If you’ve ever attempted to wear head scarves for women before, chances are you’ve experienced that dreaded “slipping” feeling, when the scarf just won’t seem to stay in place. At Headcovers, we’ve developed a couple of handy tricks to help eliminate that pesky tendency.
The 100% Organic Cotton Scarf Pad is unmatched by anything else in the market. It’s made of cotton grown without any harmful chemicals or toxins to keep irritants off of your head and out of your life. Not only does it hold scarves in place for all day stability, its volume adds a touch of oomph for women dealing with a naked scalp.
Our Bamboo Scarf Pad was designed to add fullness to the crown of the head, while the french terry material acts as a stabilizing agent to grip the scarf in place. It also creates a barrier between your head and the scarf, so you can launder less and live more. Also check out the Bamboo Comfort Headband and our Padded Headband which can be worn under scarves and hats for total coverage and slippage control.
How to Style a Head Scarf
The best way to conquer any fashion question is to find inspiration as a starting point. We recommend browsing Pinterest or Instagram to see how other people are styling their scarves for women’s hair. Give yourself time to experiment - there’s a learning curve for everything, even putting together an outfit with a new accessory.
Still, here are a couple of tips to get your wheels turning.
First, scarves tend to have soft lines when tied around the head. In other words, they drape. Compliment this by pairing your head scarf with more structured pieces, like a cargo jacket or double-breasted blazer. Jeans look great with head scarves, because the rougher texture of denim coincides pleasingly with the smoothness of the scarf’s fabric.
While contrasting textures is a win, when it comes to colors be sure to coordinate. This creates a sense of unity throughout the outfit, harmonizing the different elements at play.
Lastly, embrace confidence. If wearing a head scarf is out of your typical comfort zone, that’s OK - but the world doesn’t need to know. If your shoulders are rolled back and proud, people will accept your appearance as the new normal. Who knows? You may even inspire them to get a head scarf for themselves.
Head Scarves for Religious Modesty
Our large selection of head scarves for women are beloved by customers who cover their head for modesty. The scarves are large enough to allow for intricate tying methods while keeping hair tucked securely away.
All of our fabrics are opaque, which means that your hair will not show beneath the scarf. Orthodox Jewish and Muslim women are amongst our most loyal shoppers, as our scarves are ideal for their modesty needs.
