I feel like it’s been the year of the bandana. From adding it to your favorite bag, your wrist, your neck and your hair. It’s been everywhere. I’m guilty of loving this trend, but not wearing it as often as I should. With so many ways to wear it there’s really no excuse to not add it into your looks more often. Since I covered 5 ways to use a neck scarf from your hair, to your bag, I thought it would be fun to share 5 ways to wear it in your hair.
I’ve been growing out my hair now for a while (still torn on the chop!) and this is definitely something that helps to dress up your hair and make it feel fresh in a pinch. It’s easy to get sick of your hair but adding in a simple bandana whether it’s a low ponytail, high top knot or something in between, I’ve got you covered.
First up, the half up. There’s actually two ways you can do this one. Either go long with your bandana like above (crossing it triangle style) so that the sides are long and flowy. Or below, folding it hamburger style so you’ve got a rectangle, makes it shorter and thicker on either side. I think this just depends on your preference, but it’s a good thing to keep in mind when adding a bandana to a ponytail. There’s really two ways you can fold it!
The Messy Top Knot.
This is a great option for dirty hair you don’t want to deal with. Throw it up in a big messy top knot and add in your bandana. I love this fun retro feel. It makes messy hair feel fresh and like you tried way harder than you really did.
I’ll be honest, this look is SO not me. It’s such a sweet look, but it’s nothing you’ll likely see me wear around town. I still wanted to share it with you because I think it’s a really fun way to wear your hair down. This is truly such a retro look with the knot to the side ever so slightly. You can either put the knot below at the nape of your neck so you don’t see it and leave it as just a headband. I actually like the little knot showing for a little more texture.
The Low Loop.
I love this one and sometimes often forget to rock a low messy bun. Simply pull your hair into a ponytail and whether you pull it 2 or 3 times around, on the last one, just pull it until your ends are almost through for the perfect loop. You can also do a big messy low bun, but I thought this was a more sleek version that’s so easy to dress up. Add your bandana (either long ways or short ways) to get the look.
