How to Fold a Bandana

Fold your bandana once into a triangle. Place the triangle on your head so that the top of the triangle (widest angle) is resting on the back of your head and the base is wrapped around your forehead. The two side points of the triangle should hang over each ear. Take one of the side points in each hand, and pull them to the back of your head. Tie them in a knot that rests on the top part of the triangle.

Again fold your bandana into a triangle once. This style is for those with short hair or hair that is wound tightly in a bun. Place the wide section of the triangle against the back of your head so that the widest angle is pointing towards the ground. Pull the opposing side points to your forehead and tie in a simple knot at the base of your hairline.

Leave your bandana in a square and fold down one of the corners about a hand’s length down the fabric. Now you should have a bandanna that looks diamond shaped. (Not like a baseball diamond, but a real diamond in a side view.) Place the folded edge of the bandana against your forehead, with the folded down corner so you can’t see it underneath. Let the rest of the bandana drape over your head. Take the two corners hanging over your ears are and tie together so they are on top of the corner hanging over your neck. This is similar to the first way of folding a bandana but it leaves more fabric hanging down to protect your neck from the sun or give you a bohemian look.
