don’t think i ever shared this little post i did for a guest post over at Boerman Ramblings. in case you missed it…enjoy!
there’s always photography going on over there and it’s mostly of my kids and craftiness i’ve whipped up. i mostly use what i have on hand for my projects and this guide is no exception. I’m gonna show you how you can take a bandanna to get 4 different looks.
ready? cool, let’s go!
bandannas are all over the place these days. I like vintage and retro looking ones as well as the traditional print. go with what you like for sure. i find cute ones at wal-mart for under $2 each.
for all of these styles, you will start by folding your bandanna into a triangle, puling one corner over to it’s opposite corner.
for the first style, start at the folded end and fold up about 1 & 1/2 to 2 inches, twice. or more depending on how much length you want hanging over the back.
this is typically how i wear it if i’m doing housework. pretty housewifey of me, right?
this one starts the same way. but make folds at both the bottom and the tip. i try to make this one about 1 & 1/2 inch wide because my hair is short and the width makes my hair puff out underneath and i try to avoid that.
place the folded part under your hair and make a double tie at the top, i like to make it a bit to the side for a retro pin-up look.
similar to the housewife look, this one is a bit shorter in length and is good for wearing with your hair up.
last one and is a variation of the pinup look. hair up in a pony and bangs pinned back also. but tuck the ends under so they don’t stick out.
so there it is! that’s what i got!
thanks again to Chrissy for letting me come over. hope everyone enjoyed the ideas and can put them to use while the weather is still hot!
