Pin back both sides just above the ears.
Gently open the layers and anchor with bobby pins. Slide the pin over the bottom fold/layer of the bandana and be sure to grip enough hair close to your scalp.
To fold the bandana, start with any piece of fabric measuring at least 18 inches square. Don't just stick with store-bought handkerchiefs. Cut a square to match the skirt you just made or slice up a vintage apron for that perfect "worn" look.
Fold the square in half to form a triangle. Then fold the center top point down to the bottom edge.
Fold down 3-4 more times to get the desired width. If I'm spending the day in rollers, I will tie them up with a slightly wider bandana (to support the lower rollers). Typically I wear a 3inch wide wrap.
Simple to wear and instantly adds a vintage feel to any outfit! And I may go so far as to say...it makes scrubbing the bathroom just a tich more enjoyable. Well, this and a strawberry daiquiri.
