How to wear a bandana

Bandana Style 1: Classic

Pull your hair back with a hair clip. Fold the bandana into a triangle. Put the long side of the triangle on your forehead and tie the ends at the back of your head under your clipped hair.

Style a bandana

Then you can slide the front of the scarf back on your head a little bit to expose the front of your hair.

Now, undo your hair clip to let your hair down again.

Bandana Style 3: Pirate style

For this bandana style, you do not need to clip your hair.

Place the front of a triangle-folded bandana on your forehead. Now wrap the ends to the back of your head and tie them over the pointed end of the bandana.

Don’t make your scarf too tight, as that will make your head look disproportional. Once tied, pull it a little bit looser with your hands.
