How to make a cute bandana hairstyles?

The bandana is a timeless fashion accessory that has crossed the ages.

There are many styles that can be done with a bandana or scarf, placing it in the hair in pin-up mode for example is a classic and one of our favorite and must-have styles for spring, but sometimes we like to be a little more creative!


You can tie it at the end of a braid, weave it around a bun, or tie it in your hair to highlight a ponytail.... here are four more bandana style ideas to try this season!

1) Headbandana


  1. Curl your hair with a curling iron. Pro tip: to help smooth your hair and catch shorter strands, start with the wave technique, from the middle of a strand to the ends, squeeze and gently slide the curling iron down.
  2. Wrap your bandana around itself in a headband.
  3. Separate two strands of hair in the front. Place the bandana at the back of your head, under the back of your hair, and bring the ends up to the top of your head.
  4. Tie a knot at the top of your head.
  5. Tuck the front strands in and around the bandana.
  6. Optional: use a bobby pin to secure the hair behind the bandana.
  7. Enjoy your new look and be the center of attention!


2) Bandana: Infinite Braid


  1. Curl your hair with a curling iron
  2. Start by making a half ponytail and secure it with a clear elastic.

Make an opening just behind the ponytail, and flip the end of the ponytail through. Gently pinch and pull the hair into the crown for added texture and volume.


3. To begin the braid, part your ponytail in half. Take a small piece of hair from the right side. Bring it under the right side and over the top of the left side.

Next, take a small piece of hair from the left section, add it to your original strand, then bring it under the left section and over the right section. Pro tip: Keep the infinity braid as tight as possible.

4. Continue repeating these steps, braiding for a few inches.

Secure with an elastic band, then take another elastic band and make a ponytail, but don't pull it all the way through to create a bun.

Finish by tying a bandana at the top of the bun.

3) Bandana bun


  1. Separate two strands of hair and bring them to the front. Secure the back section into a ponytail with an elastic band, then tuck the end of your bandana into the elastic.
  2. Create a three-strand braid, using the bandana as one of the three strands. Continue braiding all the way down, then secure with an elastic, and crimp the braid to add volume.
  3. With the two front ends, create a braid (split in half, twist the parts in opposite directions and then wrap them around each other) on each side. Using a Winder, roll the braided middle up, then fold the ends of the Winder down.
  4. Secure all loose ends with pins or hair clips.
  5. Take the two rope braids, cross them over the top of the bun, then wrap under the bun and back. Secure with bobby pins.


4) High ponytail bandana


  1. Curl your hair with a curling iron.
  2. Separate a strand in the front, at face level with a hair clip.
  3. Secure the remaining hair in a ponytail with an elastic band.
  4. Gently pinch and pull the hair into the crown for volume.
  5. Using the front strand, create a three-strand Dutch braid. Braid until you reach the ponytail, then pin the braid with the ponytail. Tie a bandana around it. Fan and add volume until you achieve your desired look.
  6. Comb the ponytail for more volume. Secure it with hairspray.
