Bandana – Retro Rockabilly Hair Accessory
Tip#1: Folding the bandana
It’s simple. Just fold the bandana in half, at angle to make a triangle. Then start folding from the bottom end of the triangle and create about 1-2 inch strip. Now all you have to do is use the two ends and tie a knot on top of your head. Secure with bobby bins. And that’s it!
Tip#2: The hairstyle
- There is one main rule that must be kept in mind while accessorizing the pin-up bandana and that is: the front top section of the hair should have a pretty, puffy wave. So, after tying the bandana, tease a section of the front hair and create a lovely wav
- Use a volumizing spray and set with a hairspray.
- Or if you don’t want the wavy style, make sure the bandana is moved slightly behind so that a good portion of the front hair section is emphasized.
Now you can just wear your hair down, make a bun or just go for a ponytail, it’s all up to you!
