Hey, guys. It's Abby, from LA, and today I'm going to show you five way to style a bandana. So to begin with, I'm going to show you how to fold a bandana if you're going to put it in your hair. So I have here a nicely freshly pressed bandana. And I'm going to take it and fold it from one corner to the other, but it's not going to quite be even.

There's going to be just a little bit off. You can see, it doesn't go quite directly corner to corner. Now, it creates a triangle. Now, I'm going to take those two points and bring them up to the other edge, lay them flat. Now, at this point you have two options. You could fold it in thirds if you want a little bit thicker headband, thicker bandana, like this. Or you fold it in half, which is what I prefer, because it just sits better on my head. So I'm going to fold it in half and then in half again. So you can see that it just gives us a little bit thinner bandana, which I just like the way it sits better, but totally up to you.
Once you have your bandana folded, we're going to go ahead and show you the first hairstyle. So my first style is going to show you how to tie and bandana in your hair if you bangs. So to begin with, I have separated off sections of my bangs on either side of my face, and I'm going to leave those forward. Push the rest the of my hair back, kind of out of the way. And we want this to be a really fun playful tousled look, so don't worry if it's not perfect. Now we're going to take the folded edges of the bandana and we're going to have them pointing upward. We're going to wrap it around that, make sure you get all your hair, this and then take the bandana up over the tops of your ears, and tie it in a knot. So we're going to tie it once, and then tie it again. And I flip my ends halfway through the second tie, and that usually gives me these perfect little bunny ears on top, which I love. Now you want to make sure that this fits right on top of your ears, then you're just going to take your hair, fluff it forward and up, adding a little volume in the back. And that is style number one. So for style number two, we're going to leave the bandana in, just like we did before, but we're just going to take our hair and sweep it over to one side. Make sure you get any little loose layers like I have, kind of pull it over. And we're going to take an elastic, just a really hidden, small elastic, and secure your hair at the nape of your neck in just a very, very soft pony tail. And if you have little layers that pop out at the bottom like I do, you can just use a bobby pin to tuck them in and secure them. No problem. And that is style number two. So for style number three, we're going to take the elastic out and set it down for now. And I'm going to go back to the back part of my hair and just give it a little tiny twist. Now I'm only twisting just because I want those layers to stay in this time.
So I'm just going give them a little bit of a twist. You can see, I just twisted it right there. And now I'm around this side, I'm going to divide it into three sections and just do a really simple loose braid. But the fact that I gave it a little twist in back's just going help hold all those crazy layers in my hair into the braid a little bit better than if I were going to use a bobby pin. Then I'm going to take that same elastic and secure the ends. And then just go back and loosen. Remember, we want it to be soft and very girly and feminine, so nothing too tight and severe. And we are done. That's number three. For style number four, I took everything out that we've done before and I still have the bandana folding up towards the sky around my neck. This time, I'm going take my hair and I'm going to part it a little bit deeper and I'm going to flip some more of my hair over to one side, and then kind of back. Because I want it sitting back so it makes a little bit of a bump right there. Now I'm going to take the bandana and I'm going to tie it right on the backside of that bump. So it gives me a little tiny lift in the front right there. And again, I'm just going to tie my bandana the same way I did before so that I have the cute little rabbit ears. But this time, the only difference is I almost have a Rosie the Riveter like little like curl right there in front, but it's not really a curl because it's just a little bump, but it looks adorable. And then, of course, volume and fluff the back any way you like, until your placement is perfect and you are done, number four.
Now style number five is the easiest one yet. So we're going to leave it the way we had it with style number four, but for those of you that don't love these little rabbit ends like this, this is what you do. You just simply take it, lift that back edge and tuck it underneath right there. Take this one, and you can do it in front or back, lift that edge, tuck, tuck, tuck. And then instead of like popping out bow ends, you just have this cute little headband look. And then, you're finished. And that is style number five. Wait, Mom, wait. Oh. Wait. There's another one you can do with this bandana. Oh, OK. It's a bow. You just take the ends and tuck them into the knot. Watch. There's one. And So you're tucking the ends of the headband into the know? Mhm. You just have to use your fingers and tuck them in. There you go. Oh, and I have a bow, a cute little Minnie Mouse bow. And I guess that's style number six. So I would really love to see what you guys do with the bandana. Make sure and hashtag CHG Bandana Styles. We'll be looking at your pictures all week and then re-Instagramming some of our very favorites, and show me how you've styled it too. I think the bandana is so fun. So for me today, you can see that I picked just a cute little baseball tee with Minnie and Mickey, my favorite Minnie style. And I put on some red Converse sneakers, and then, of course, the red lips. And my girls tell me I look like I'm, so I don't know. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but it is sure a fun style. Let's put it that way. So be sure to follow us on Instagram.
