Wrap It Up First of all, you’ll need to know how to tie a bandana.
If you have just been tying them in a simple knot on top of your head, you have been missing out! There are a million and one ways to tie a bandana. Here are a few of our favorites.
Step One: Start by folding the scarf in half diagonally. You should have a triangle-shaped bandana in your hand now.
Step Two: Put the bandana on top of your head. The tip of the triangle should be pointed away from your face. The center part of the bandana (where you made the fold) should be in the middle of your forehead. Hold it in place.
Step Three: Take the end pieces of the bandana that are now hanging down around your ears and tie them at the back of your head. A single knot is fine, or make a double knot for more security.
Step Four: Make sure that the pointed piece of the triangle is tucked underneath your knot and you’re good to go!
The Forehead Wrap-Around :-
Step One: Hold the middle of scarf at the center of your forehead.
Step Two: Pull the ends of the scarf to the back of your head and push them underneath your hair. Tie them into a simple knot.
Step Three: Adjust the bandana to show the top of your hair but cover your forehead.
The Scarf-Style Wrap :-
Step One: Fold the bandana in half to a make triangle.
Step Two: Hold the ends and wrap the bandana around your neck so that the triangle is in the front and pointing downward.
Step Three: Tie the ends behind your neck. Tuck the excess fabric underneath the knot.
Step One: Start in the front of your neck and wrap the bandana around your neck once. The bulk of it should be hanging behind you.
Step Two: Pull the ends around to the front. Make sure you have a little bit of slack and the fabric isn’t too tight. You might need a slightly oversized bandana.
Step Three: Tie a knot in the front. Let the remaining bit of fabric hang down from the knot.
The Ascot :-
Step One: Drape the bandana around your neck. Leave the fabric hanging down toward your chest.
Step Two: Fold the ends over each other twice. Basically, you’re just looping them around each other.
Step Three: After you are loop it over the second time, bring one side through the second loop.
Step Four: Spread out the top part of the knot so that it covers up the first loop. Imagine a tie and how it has a central piece of fabric that covers the folds. That’s what you’re trying to achieve.
The Square Knot :-
Step One: Drape the bandana around your neck so the ends are hanging down in front. Adjust it so that one end is longer than the other.
Step Two: Cross the long end over the shorter end.
Step Three: Once you have crossed the longer end over, you’ll have a loop. Pull the longer end through the loop.
Step Four: Pull the longer end behind the short end, then loop it around the front.
Step Five: Take the end of the longer piece that you’ve been looping around and tuck it into the knot.
The Ponytail Wrap :-
Step One: Make a regular ponytail with a hair-tie. (Avoid hair-ties with metal. Not only are they bad for your hair but they can also snag the fabric and make tying the bandana more of a hassle.)
Step Two: Wrap the bandana around your ponytail and knot it twice. To make it a little extra secure, string the bandana through your hair-tie once at the base of your ponytail before you wrap it around.
The Modern Mini Turban :-
Step One: Get your hands on an oversized bandana. You might be able to get by with a regular bandana, but a larger one makes this design easier. It really depends on your hair length and whether or not you plan to tuck your hair into the turban or wear it down.
Step Two: Fold the bandana in half to make a triangle.
Step Three: Place the bandana at the back of your head and pull the loose ends forward toward the crown of your head.

The Retro Look :-
Step One: Fold your bandana in half to make a triangle.
Step Two: Starting with the point of the triangle, start rolling it up. You’re trying to create a long piece of fabric that’s less than an inch wide.
Step Three: Place the bandana at the base of your hairline, then pull the loops to the top of your head.
Step Four: Tie a knot at the top of your head. If you really love this look, consider investing in a cloth-wrapped wire headband that has been created just for this style. To maximize the retro appeal, add some cat-ye winged eyeliner.
The Boho Casual Look :-
Step One: Fold the bandana in half lengthwise.
Step Two: Wrap it around the front of your head (with your hair underneath) and leave the loose ends in back.
Step Three: Tie a knot in the back. Leave your hair loose underneath. Go for a bedhead style or beachy waves.

Step Two: Take your bandana and fold it into a triangle. Starting with the pointed edge, roll it up until you have one long piece of fabric.
Step Three: Wrap the rolled-up bandana around your bun. Start at the top so you have loose ends hanging down at the bottom. Step Four: Take the loose ends and tie them into a bow or let them hang down for a more casual look.
