How to style your bandanna

Alice Band

Fashionable and functional. The Alice Band is for those looking to make a sleek and stylish fashion statement.

  1. First, take your bandanna and fold in half diagonally to form a triangle. 
  2. Starting from the point, fold backwards by 4cm as many times as necessary until you meet the opposite side.
  3. You should now have a long, thick strip.
  4. Centre the bandanna at the base of your hairline and lift both ends upwards, passing behind your ears. Tie the ends in a single knot on top of your head.

The Classic

This is the no fuss approach. It's simple and effective and gets the job done.

  1. First, take your bandanna and fold in half diagonally to form a triangle.
  2. Put the long edge of the bandanna to your forehead, placing it as high or low as you like.
  3. Smooth the body of the triangle back over your head, with the point falling by the nape of your neck.
  4. Next simply bring the ends of the bandanna to the back of the head, overlapping the triangle tip and tie in a single knot.
