Cap Bandanna

Protect your hair on sunny days with this style. Using the triangle fold, wrap and secure the scarf behind your head, on top of your hair, tucking any loose pieces underneath.

You can also turn the ribbon fold into a makeshift headband. Wrap the folded scarf around your head, and secure it at the base of your neck. Tuck the loose ends in, or leave them out for a retro look.
