Whether you tie it in back for a more sporty look, or tie it in front for a classic Rockabilly style, a rolled bandana is a go-to for girls looking to keep the hair out of their faces. Whatever style you choose, rolling your bandana properly will make sure it stays in place.

Step 1

Start with a flat bandana. Use an iron if necessary to remove any wrinkles.

Step 2

Lay the bandana in front of you on a flat surface. Rotate the square shape to a diamond shape so the lower tip is facing you.

Step 3

Take the lower tip and fold it upward to the top tip. This should create a triangle shape.

Step 4

Make sure all edges line up.

Step 5

Begin to roll the bottom of the triangle towards the tip of the triangle in narrow strips. Do not flatten as you roll. If your bandana has a decorative design, roll in wider strips so the design remains visible when the bandana is completely rolled.

Step 6

Tie the rolled bandana into the desired style. For example, position the rolled bandana across your forehead and tie at the back of your head for a sweatband, or wrap the ends from the nape of your neck to the top of your crown and tie.


  • Read the care labels for the recommended iron setting for your bandana.
