How to Tie a Bandana Like a Gangsta

Updated April 17, 2017

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.

Fold a square bandanna into a triangle.

Holding the two side corners of the triangle, begin folding it up toward the middle corner in half inch folds until you are left with a rectangular shaped scarf with pointed ends.

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.

Tie the two corners together into a knot on your forehead.

Adjust the scarf on your head so that the tie sits twisted to one side of your forehead.
