Oh, how we love a head scarf. They exude classic 70s chic bohemia and transform an outfit with a simple twist. They are functional fashion for women suffering from hair loss, and they offer an alternative to wigs and hats. The new Danish-designed Christine Collection from Wallaroo features scarves and turbans that are comfortable, beautiful and versatile.
When Wallaroo designed the Christine Collection, the intention was to provide medical patients who had lost their hair with a comfortable, fashionable headwear option. But the company soon found themselves writing orders for boutiques who loved them as a fashion statement and wanted to stock them.
Not surprising, as the headscarf has an illustrious place in the history of fashion. Take a look.

The Wallaroo Basic Easy (Retail: $70)
The Basic Easy is just that - easy to put on and easy to wear. The long ends have been tied and fixed together so all you have to is slip it on! If you like, your look can still be customized by tucking or tying the ends into a knot or bow. Silk fabric makes this a dressier option too.
The Wallaroo Basic Long (Retail: $60)
For the most styling options, the Basic Long lets you tie the scarf yourself. First, the two long ends can be tied in the back or on the side. Then you can try knotting them, tying them in a bow, or tucking them in for a chic chignon look. Choose from ten colors in two fabric options: cotton for comfort and structure, or bamboo - ultra-soft and moisture wicking.
The Yoga Turban (Retail $40)
You guessed it! This turban is perfect for wearing to yoga class, on a cruiser bike ride or just around the house. The ultra-soft bamboo fabric is moisture-wicking, which provides cooling comfort on those humid days. Available in six rich colors.
