Product description

“When I was young, I wore head scarves all the time — at first just to keep my hair out of my eyes and then later as more of a fashion accessory. I still find them to be fun and flirty. However, if you just can’t see yourself wearing it that way, this versatile cabled triangle can easily be worn as a neckerchief instead.” – Julie Hoover
