How to wear your bandanna - step-by-step guide

The Classic

 

1. First take your bandanna and fold in half diagonally to form a triangle.

2. Put the long edge of the bandanna to your forehead, placing it as high or as low as you like.

3. Smooth the body of the triangle back over your hair with the point falling by the nape of your neck.

4. Then simply bring the ends of the bandanna to the back of the head, overlapping the triangle tip and tie in a single knot.

5. Too easy and a perfect disguise when having a bad hair day!
