A way of tying a headscarf that we usually find as the base of all headbands (under all headscarves) mainly to keep all the hair gathered but also to give more length and volume to the overall result.

The length of the woman’s hair and the ability to create rich elaborate braids was of great importance.

They braided their hair with a cloth or headscarf to make it look thicker, creating a rich base on which they placed all the outer headbands. The art of “decorating” the head created feelings of respect and admiration.

This way of tying the headscarves is found as a basis in several Greek traditional headbands.

Fold the headscarf in a triangle. Fold the headscarf starting from the big side and in the width you want until you wrap it all the way to the end, creating a long ribbon. Pick up your hair in a simple ponytail. Pass the headscarf (in the form of a ribbon) at the base of the ponytail and make a knot. Hold the two ends of the headscarf in your hands and as a third part your hair and knit the braid. Once you reach the end of your hair, tie the ends of the headscarf with a double knot.
