  1. 1

    Lay your bandanna out flat. The less wrinkles, the better the headband will look.

  2. 2

    Fold the corners so the bandanna is now one big triangle.

  3. 3

    Start at the wide end of the triangle, opposite the point, and roll-up the bandanna lengthwise, towards the point, about one inch.

  4. 4

    Repeat this roll up procedure until you are at the point of the triangle.

  5. 5

    Place the bandanna around your head and tie the two ends together in a knot at the back of your head.

Tips and warnings

  • If the point of the triangle sticks out, just tuck it back in.
  • Practice the rolling up several times. It gets easier with more practice and looks better too.
