Bandanas are versatile hair pieces that can bring practicality or style to your look, depending on your needs and usage. If you need a quick, no-fuss update to your outfit, if you need to keep your hair out of your face or if you just haven’t showered today and need a quick way to hide the grime, bandanas can bring color and fashion to your head.
Bandanas come in large squares, making them the perfect accessory to cover a whole head of hair. If you have to run to the bus stop or grocery store before hopping in the shower, a bandana can save the world from a greasy mess. Bandanas are also a great option for traveling, hiking, camping or other long outdoor adventures. They keep your hair under control, away from the elements and hidden from view. You can even tuck an ice or heat pack under the bandana. Pull your hair up into a messy bun or let it hang down in two braids on the sides. Fold your bandana from one corner to the other, making a triangle. Lay the longest end of the triangle near the front of your hair and bring the corners around to tie under your hair, near your neck. You can tuck the bottom corner or leave it hanging.
Headbands are a classical popular trend, holding your hair back and out of your face. Headbands range from simple and casual to elaborate and formal. Choose a bandana pattern and style that is right for you and the occasion. Style your hair as you would like. You can leave it down or pull it into a bun. You can curl it, French twist it or put it up on a ponytail. Fold your bandana in half, from one corner to the other. On the long end, fold the bandana down toward the opposite corner. Choose the width you prefer. Two inches works best. Continue to roll and fold the bandana until you reach the corner. Lay the bandana on your head, near the front of your hair. Wrap the corners around and tie near your neck.
Bandanas make great bows for your hair. You can show team spirit or add a little whimsy to your look. Pull your hair into a pony tail. Fold your bandana in half, corner to corner, and roll into a rectangle. Tie around the base of your ponytail, letting the tails hang loosely.
