Tutorials have been our saving grace while adapting to life at home amid the coronavirus pandemic. The instructional videos that explain everything from how to remove a gel manicure to protective styling techniques have helped us to avert quarantine beauty blunders. If you’re wondering how to prevent a head wrap from shifting, there’s a tutorial for that too.
On Thursday, Vogue released a new episode of Beauty Secrets starring Alicia Keys, who shows fans how she achieves her luminous glow and a foolproof method for tying head wraps.
“There are so many gorgeous ways to wrap your head,” Keys explains—but pro tip: “the less slippery the material, the better,” she says. “If it’s too silky, it falls off. So you have to get a scarf that’s probably more cotton.”
Once Keys creates a sculptural updo with her scarves (she uses two), she secures her head wrap with a hair tie for extra security, and then it stays all day. “All day!” says Keys. “My head wrap is popping and so I can just go do whatever I want to do.”
