Hair accessories are back in a big way for summer – and leading the charge is the humble bandana! Here are our top three ways to integrate this retro hair accessory into your hair 'do!
The bandana headband with a bun
One of the key selling points of a bandana is that it makes perfectly coiffed styles like a bun look polished because it smooths down any errant flyaways around the head. To get the look, secure your hair into either a low or high bun, then fold your bandana into a long band. From there, pass the cloth from the front of your head around to the back then knot it at the base of the neck and tuck in the ends. Too easy!
The retro bandana with sleek hair
Retro-inspired trends have been huge this year, so if you want to add a bit of that vibe to your bandana style, the secret is all about how you wear it. Style your hair straight and sleek and then grab your bandana and fold it into a triangle. Place the bandana on the top of your head so that the top points are behind you and fold both sides around the hair, knotting the ends above the nape of the neck and allowing the top of the triangle to hang loose on top. Smooth your locks over the shoulders and you're all set!
The pin-up style bandana with a textured bun
If you struggle to tame those naturally curly locks, adding a bandana to your look is a smart and stylish quick fix. Channel your inner pin-up girl by securing your naturally textured lengths into a messy top knot. From there, take the bandana and fold into a band that's roughly 10cm wide. Wrap the bandana around your head and tie the ends on top of the head into a cutesy side bow.
