A trend for young men is to wear bandanna scarves around their head in the gangsta style. It’s a fashion that started among gang members in California and has since spread from the West to be a nationwide style among young, urban men. Everyone who wears the style isn’t necessarily a gang member, as it has become pretty main stream, but many times the colours or patterns of the scarves are indicative of gang loyalties.

  1. 1

    Fold a square bandanna into a triangle.

    Wrap the scarf around your head from the back, down toward the base of your neck, with the two corners wrapping around toward the front of your forehead.
