5 super easy Scarf & bandana hairstyles for curly and wavy hair

Bandana Headband Styles

Let’s start with a super easy bandana hairstyle – styling with it as a headband. So, how do you style a bandana headband on your wavy, curly or straight hair? To style:

  1. Fold your bandana to form a triangle
  2. then keep folding diagonally until you have a one inch (or wider) band.
  3. Holding the ends of the bandana, place your bandana headband in a comfortale position at the top of your head.
  4. Tie the ends of the bandana at the base of your head.
  5. Finally, adjust any strands around the frame of your face to soften your look.

Bandana Headband Hairstyles are also perfect for short hair of any texture (straight, curly or wavy).

This bandana headband still is so easy and will keep your hair back so that you can show your gorgeous face. You’ll also add some fun color to your hairstyle.

Scarf Or Bandana Pony Tail Hairstyle

A high, middle, low, or half ponytail is an awesome bandana hairstyle for your straight, wavy, or curly hair. This bandana hairstyle works best with a smaller bandana so it doesn’t overpower your hairstyle. To style:

  1. Secure your preferred pony tail with a hairtie
  2. Fold the bandana in a triangle
  3. Keep folding diagonally until you make a strip
  4. Wrap the bandana around the pony tail and secure it with a hair pin

Bandana Or Scarf Plait Or Braid For Wavy, Curly Hair

A braided or plait hairstyle with a scarf or bandana will add color all through your plait or braid. To style:

  1. Make a triangle with your scarf or bandana
  2. Fold your bandana to your preferred width
  3. Put your hair in a pony tail
  4. Wrap the scarf around your pony tail
  5. Create two equal sections for your braid
  6. Start braiding your hair with the two sections and the scarf as the third section of your braid or plait
  7. Braid as usual incorporating the scarf or banada with sections of your braid (one section will be without piece of the scarf or bandana)
  8. Secure your braid with an elastic

Alternatively, in step 5, you can create three equal sections of your hair. Next, hold the middle of your scarf and place it on top of your ponytail and incorporate one half of the scarf with one section of your plait and the other with another section of your plait. Note that one section of your hair will not have part of the scarf. Plait or braid your hair as usual.

Scarf Or Bandana Bun Hairstyle

The super easy style is, of course, my favourite. I love putting my curly hair in a bun. Adding a scarf or bandana adds a pop of colour and makes my bun even cuter. The easiest way to do this style is to create a bun and simply wrap your scarf around your bun and secure the ends under or tie the bandana or scarf in a knot or bow to secure. And that’s literally it!

Curly Pineapple With Scarf Or bandana

This hairstyle is super cute for the day and protective when sleeping with your curly or wavy hair.

To style your curly or wavy hair in a pineapple with a scarf or bandana:

  1. Fold your scarf in a triangle
  2. Bend your head over and place the long part of the scarf at the base of your neck (so that the pointy part is at the top of your head)
  3. Next, criss cross by your forehead
  4. Then, wrap again to the back of your head and secure with a knot or bow

There are many other ways that you can style your curly hair or wavy hair with a scarf or bandana but these 5 are my faves because they’re so easy and very cute.
