A few different tutorials on how to tie and wear the Mode scarf turban popularized by Murua producer Momoko Ogihara. It’s so popular that Jelly called it the “ogimomo” style after Momoko Ogihara.
I’m going to show several different ways to wear it and one should suit your face shape and hair style
As a note Momoko seems to have more of a heart-shaped face. Ena has an oval-shaped face, as do I. I’d love to see how this looks on other facial shapes.
One of the great things about the scarf turban is your hair can be any length to do these.
You will need a long scarf and/or headband or bobbypins if you have bangs. That is all
We’re going to be doing the vertical scarf turban or true “ogimomo” first as shown by Murua ladies
STEP ONE: Tie back your hair. Since my hair is relatively short and one layer I chose the looped in ponytail.
OPTIONAL STEP but recommended: Mori statement earrings
If you have bangs you can either bobbypin them back (shown)
Or use a handband to temporarily pull them back (recommended).
Rock out 5head. (or wherein we name the tutorial how-to-take-a-series-of-unflattering-pics) :worries:
STEP TWO: Take a rolled up scarf and place it under your bun and bring the tips outward (as shown)
STEP THREE: Make them cross
STEP FOUR: Now whichever is easiest for you right or left handed bring one up and the other down.
STEP FIVE: Cross them
STEP SIX: Tie a double knot behind your bun. Slip off headband and tuck in bangs.
How it looks shown from the side.
Some of the Murua girls let their bangs down instead of severly pulled back. Also you can use this look with a side ponytail.
Alanna of VivaRilakkuma tweeted me her results. She also has an oval face. Looks fab with her glasses :upheart:
Anyone else try it out? Send me them and I’ll post it with a link to your blog :heartshake:

Hair down Scarf Turban
It’s also been popular to do a similar look with hair down. Shown on the gorgeous Detsu Korohi :heartshake:
Now brands have come out with premade versions of this, but well why buy more when you have a scarf at home
Straight hair, a bit blah don’t you think
This time we’re using a long narrow scarf.
Same method as before
Finished off. A lot more interesting than just straight hair
From the side. I’m sure you guys can make yours a lot less messy :worries:
Same thing done with hair that was curled the previous day.
Other new scarf tricks
Using a similar scarf will also give you the pirate scarf look which Jelly did in their September issue.
Or the scarf bow done to the side instead of worn like a headband.
Well phew that was a lot of unflattering pics , but hopefully you got a few scarf tutorials to try as we try to transition into Fall. :worry:
Is your usamimi feeling dated?
If it’s long enough, like my w♥c one. Then you can also do the “ogimomo” turban with it, too
