Tying your bandana in a simple knot on top of your head, may seem to be the traditional way of wearing this accessory. But if you plan to wear bandana in your hair, find a color that suits your skin tone first as some colors will make you glow while others will wash you out. Once you know your color palette, learn to knot them to your head. First, fold the bandana in half diagonally creating a triangle-shaped scarf in your hand now. When putting your bandana on your head, the triangle should be pointed away from your face for where the center part of the bandana should be in the middle of your forehead. Take the end of your bandana and tie them at the back of your head knotting them once or twice and you’re good to go.

Whether you’re aiming for a cowgirl look, edgy chic style, bohemian style, or grunge style, wearing bandana as a scarf is another way of wearing this versatile accessory creatively. For a creative knot, start in the front of your neck and wrap the bandana around your neck once for where the bulk of it should be hanging behind you. Then pull the ends to the front and tie a knot letting the remaining bit of fabric hang down. For an ascot-style scarf, start by draping the bandana around your neck, but this time, leave the fabric hanging down toward your chest. Then fold the ends by looping them around. Finally, spread out the top part of the knot so that it covers up the first loop then it’s done.

  1. Wear your bandana as a belt.

Wearing your bandana as a belt is a creative way to show how creative you are. If you feel it’s too short, you may tie two bandanas to create a longer silhouette for the belt. You may start folding the bandana in half into a triangle shape then fold them lengthwise if you want crisp lines. But if you’re just looking for a messy look, just roll them lightly and wrap the fabric tightly around your waist. Just aim for a comfortable fit that leave you with enough room to knot the loose ends and tie the bandana into a knot. You have the option to fold the excess fabric underneath the knot or let it hang on your waist.

  1. Tie your bandana to add some style on your bag.
