As someone who spends a lot of time making snoods, and a lot of time wearing snoods, I've discovered some different twists on my same old headcoverings. Some days when I'm home working around the house I might not feel like wearing an entire snood, but I still appreciate having my hair mostly pulled back out of my face (and my hair constantly escapes my buns!). Frequently I use this variation (which coincidentally works with all of my snoods!):
I start with a bun.
I put the snood on just like I normally would (after turning it inside out!)...
But I wrap the tie around my bun, winding it from the top to the bottom:
And then making a neat bow under the bottom of my bun:
Some days I stop and wear the snood like this (which kind of looks like a tichel):
Then all I do is grasp the front:
And pull it back:
And voila! My bun is controlled, my hair is securely back and I have one of my favorite styles (that I used to usually create with a scarf) with one of my favorite snoods!
