The square shawl with paisley pattern enjoyed great popularity back in the 90s and has been making its comeback for several years. And rightly so, because bandanas are inexpensive in numerous colors and are real all-rounders: the scarf hides greasy hair, tames flying hair, protects against solar radiation or simply gives your look a rocky note. We'll show you how to tie a bandana as a scarf, headband, arm or headdress.
The classic bandana is worn tied around the neck. How to tie the bandana:
The square bandana becomes one of these folded in the middle to form a triangle.
This is then placed around the neck, with the point forward, and the ends tied together at the neck. Et voilà: the cool cowgirl chic is ready.
Alternatively, you can use the Knot also casually on the front wear. Depending on the size of the bandana, the knotted part of this lock falls like a scarf or looks like a cute bow.
Bandanas are also perfect as a headband. The look goes well with both straight and curly hair, as well as an open mane, as well as a messy bun or ponytail.
The easiest way to tie a bandana as a hairband only requires four steps:
Fold the bandana diagonally in half into a triangle.
Then form a narrow strip from the bandana by folding it several times from the longest side.
Wrap the narrowly folded bandana around your head so that the open side is above your forehead.
Now you can tie the ends of the bandana together.
The knot does not have to be worn in the middle at the front. The bandana knot is also particularly popular on the front side like a bow. If you prefer the classic headband look, you can hide the knot at the back of your head.

A bandana can also add a pop of color to your ponytail. It is best to choose the scarf in a matching tone to the rest of your outfit. That's how it works:
Tie your braid with an inconspicuous hair tie in your hair color.
Fold the bandana around your braid into a flat roll, wrap it around the braid, and tie it up.
Depending on your taste, you can let the ends hang down or wrap them around the braid. This technique also works with a bun.
This look was very popular in the 90s: Regardless of whether Christina Aguilera or the singers from TLC – bandanas were often worn as headscarves. Today, style icons like Bella Hadid are bringing the retro look back. That's how it works:
Fold the bandana diagonally into a triangle.
Place the bandana around your head with the triangle tip facing back so that you can tie it at the back of your head.
The paisley pattern also looks stylish when wrapped around the wrist and gives your outfit a cool, rocky touch. Particularly practical: If you have to tie your hair back on the go, you have the bandana to hand immediately. Alternatively, you can simply wrap the cloth around a strap of your purse tie.
