A very stylish friend of mine starts chemo in a few weeks so thoughts have turned to bald heads and how best to accessorise them. Bald head or no, I love head scarves, I have a giant box full of them, plucked from discount bins, thrift shops, men's clothing stores, designer sales, brought back to me by friends and family from all over the world. They're so chic, very Côte d'Azur, circa 1960. It's all about how you tie them though, the wrong scarf with the wrong knot will take you from Riviera to Romanian gypsy in less than ten seconds.
I like the idea of chemo, a big blast of some seriously deadly stuff that will kill any nasty stuff it comes into contact with. Sure, it can ruin all the years of hard work you've put into your hair, but on the plus side, you won't have to worry about shaving your legs for a while.
Nice 'how-to' on tying head scarves here
Happily, they can be as cheap or as pricey as you like. I love the one below, (J by Jasper Conran, €18.50, Debenhams). The colour is zingy and the material is soft and silky so it won't irritate your skin, whether you have hair or not. A few from my collection are pictured above.
