When I was younger, bandanas served one purpose.. When the Fourth of July would roll around, I’d run to the laundry room, grab the stool, and reach for that american flag bandana. I would tie that bandana in my hair, paint my nails a shade of glitter red and then head out for fireworks. Once the fireworks were over, the american flag bandana was stuffed back into that laundry room cabinet.
Recently, bandanas and scarves have been all the rave.
In my experience, I’ve mostly seen bandanas tied around the neck or tied on a bag, not reserved for little girls anymore.
Isn’t it funny how old trends come back into style?!
Think about all of the trends that have come and gone. I’m over here hoping that gaucho pants are coming back! Did anyone else love those?! I had a pair of brown gauchos that I wore with my black heeled flip flops…. Talk about a fashion statement!
When tying a bandana, the way you tie it mainly depends on how you style it.
While I’ve mainly seen bandanas tied around the neck, here are some other options on how to wear a bandana:
Tie a bandana on your purse
Tie a bandana around your wrist
Tie a bandana in your hair
Wrap a bandana around your ponytail
Honestly, the options are endless! Not only are there a bunch of ways to wear a bandana, there are a bunch of ways to tie it!
Today I am showing you my go-to method for tying a bandana. This method works for the style of the bandana around your neck, my personal favorite style!
- Take any two opposite corners of your bandana and hold each corner with your hands.
- Match the two corners together to form a triangle with the bandana.
- Beginning with the point of the triangle, start rolling the bandana with the desired thickness of the roll.
- Roll the bandana until there is no fabric left to be rolled.
- Take the bandana, put the center of it behind your neck, bring both ends together, and tie!
- Voila! You’re all set!
Although sometimes tying a bandana or scarf can seem super simple, you’d be surprised at how hard it can actually be!! I hope y’all enjoyed this post! See y’all soon!
