I remember the first time I wore a bandana: it was for Decades Day during Homecoming Week of high school. I was using it for a Rosie the Riveter costume that my friend and I had bought together. I twisted the headband onto my head and was ready to feel embarrassed. Up until that point I had written off bandanas as something that only cowboys wore. However, once I saw the way it looked I was amazed at how beautiful it really was. Although it was a simple way to push my hair away from my face and add to an outfit, it made me feel both cute and confident. Since that day, I have bought more bandanas and used them for a variety of occasions.
1. Classic Headband
You might already know this, but a bandana can make an incredibly stylish headband. This is an easy way to sweep your hair away from your face while avoiding the gnarly headache that most normal headbands bring.
2. Tied in Front
This takes the headband look from earlier but adds some extra spunk to it. Instead of twisting the ties to the back, tie your bandana in the front.
If you don’t like the way that the ties are sticking up in photo 1, you can also tuck them in, similar to the teal bandana above. This creates a knot on the top of your head which is a fresh take on the bandana headband look. This would be a great accessory to wear to class, to a carnival, or to a casual dinner.
3. Modern Day Cinderella
Although this bandana kerchief look gives off some Cinderella-doing-housework vibes, it is the perfect look for a lazy Sunday or a BBQ.
To achieve this look, fold the square bandana into a triangle. Fold the long end of the triangle over once or twice and tie the ends. Then simply place on your head. Although this look may be reminiscent of pre-princess Cinderella, it is the perfect way to catch the eye of your future prince.
4. Ponytail Prom Queen
The classic ponytail is one of my favorite hair-dos but sometimes it needs a little refreshing. A simple way to do this is by adding a fun bandana to your ponytail. Simply tie your favorite bandana around your ponytail to update this classic style. This is perfect for going to a diner, class, or even date night.
