The swinging sixties trademark image of Coronation Street's Hilda Ogden's headscarf is hitting the catwalks.

The scarf that was synonymous with working class women of the 1970s and was originally born out of necessity is now the hottest look of the summer.

For ladies with a willingness to experiment with new hair styles and a
desire to stand out from the crowd, the humble headscarf is the perfect way to add a little glam to your hair style.

The turban, as made fashion-famous by Mary-Kate Olsen, has been pushed aside in favour of a more casual hair look.

As shown by Cheryl Cole in her latest video for Under The Sun,the beehive and headscarf look is here to stay.

Donning a red and black polka dot headscarf, Cheryl looked every inch the vintage starlet.

The headscarf can compliment any outfit, from nautical and cool to punk and glam.

The look has connotations of the wartime image of the tie-up headscarf, one that implies women are feminine but also fierce and tough.

Nicole Ritchie shows how to rock the glam headscarf look with her cute and chic nautical themed look which she pairs with large sunglasses and a sleek hair-do.

Kylie channels her inner boho-chic with her Pucci-esque headscarf. This is an alternative style that the scarf can be worn in and the colourful swirls drape elegantly across her whole head, a perfect look when protecting your hair in the sun.
