In Your Ponytail 

This probably became my most favorite way to wear a bandana. Come warmer temps I personally love to have my hair pulled back and off of my face. Therefore, a ponytail is usually my go to hair do! The bandana added such a sweet touch to an otherwise sporty do. Simply fold the scarf in half and then roll over and over until it is thin and long. Then tie in a knot over your hair tie.

Tied Around Your Neck 

This styling is super western/bank robbery in my opinion. Aka I have probably watched too many old western movies haha. But it’s a great way to style a bandana for a little extra coverage and of course, to give you that western vibe! Fold the bandana in half diagonally to form a triangle. Then with the point of the triangle pointing towards your chest, wrap the long ends around your neck and knot. Knot tighter for a smaller triangle or looser for a bigger, lower hanging triangle.

Tied Around Your Belt Loop 

Super simple and a really fun way to add a bandana to your look! A little different and not something you see super often. Which makes me love it even more! Easy, peasy – just pull the bandana long wise through your belt loop and knot. Allow the ends to hang down.

As a Headband

Another fun way to add a bandana to your hair for a little hair do upgrade! In my opinion, this is the most feminine way to style the bandana. Definitely gives off a very sweet look! To do, fold long wise and fold until you have a thin and long scarf, flip your head over and pull all of your hair around from your neck. Wrap the bandana around the base of your head and pull up across the top of your head. Tie off to the side into a knot. I tie mine pretty tight to keep it in place.

Tied Around Your Neck II 

This is a go to when styling a bandana for sure! Super easy and adds such a fun touch to your look. One you probably see most often! Definitely provides a western vibe. Which if you read Monday or Tuesday’s posts you know, I’m all about that! Fold long wise and fold until you have a thin and long scarf, wrap around your neck and tie into a knot {not too tight, you need to breathe haha}.

Tied Onto Your Handbag 

Definitely the easiest of all six and one you can keep for several outfits! If you aren’t into adding a bandana around your neck or in your hair, this way to style a bandana is definitely for you. It’s playing into the trend but not a total commitment {if that makes sense}. Again, fold long wise and fold until you have a thin and long scarf, wrap around one strap of your handbag and tie in a loose knot. Allow the ends to hang down.
