With the summer temperatures, our hair also wants a little summer feeling. The trend this year: bandanas. We'll show you how you can conjure up great and, above all, simple hairstyles with the towels!
Summer is just around the corner and of course, we not only get our airy summer clothes out of the closet but also tie our hair up so that it doesn't stick to our necks the next time we break out in a sweat. But instead of tying your hair in a ponytail or bun with a boring elastic band, this year we are going for the trend accessories: Colorful scarves and bandanas!
In cooler temperatures they warm our necks, in summer they adorn our hair. With the colorful scarves and bandanas, we can now fix playful braided hairstyles, turn the classic bun into a real eye-catcher, and put short hair in the limelight. Let yourself be surprised which varied bandana hairstyles you can conjure up with the popular accessory. We have selected some beautiful hair inspirations for summer that you can easily imitate.
In summer we like to wear our hair in a high ponytail. After all, on hot days you quickly work up a sweat under a thick mat. And frizz is also a common consequence of uncomfortable muggy warm weather. But wearing a classic ponytail every day becomes boring in the long run. The solution? Bandanas. The colorful scarves are ideal for turning a simple braid into a real eye-catcher. Simply tie the hair up with an elastic band. Then you can fold the cloth of your choice, wrap it around the elastic and then secure it with hair clips.
Alternatively, you can simply knot the repurposed headband around the elastic. The long ends of the scarf are integrated very loosely into the braid - a bandana hairstyle that is definitely not boring.
Retro hairstyles with bandanas, as we know them from the 90s and early 2000s, are more popular than ever again.
For the 90s look, fold the bandana into a triangle, place the long side at the hairline and tie the two ends together at the nape of the neck. This not only looks super stylish but also protects your hair from the blazing sun on hot days, after all, it is not only your skin that is attacked by UV rays. Even on annoying bad hair days, when the hair doesn't want the way you want it, the bandana helps to keep a cool head, as it can hide unruly hair, frizz, or a greasy hairline in no time at all.
Instead of tying the scarf around the neck, you can pull the bandana deep over your forehead and knot it at the back of your head - this creates the trendy pirate summer look that can be wonderfully combined with a boho dress and light beach waves!
Hair tip: Depending on what fabric your bandanas and scarves are made of, the hairstyle can quickly slip. This is especially true for silk scarves. Classic cotton bandanas are a little more slip-resistant on the hair. But to ensure that nothing slips, attach the hair accessory with a couple of bobby pins - better safe than sorry!
Probably the most popular rockabilly hairstyle cannot do without a bandana. For the vintage look, all you have to do is fold the square scarf correctly, then place it behind the neck and knot it at the top of the head. Just pluck the short ends of the scarf into shape and the rockabilly look is ready. Instead of a bandana, you can also tie a classic scarf in the same way and then tie the longer ends of the larger scarf in a bow. You can wear the cool vintage style with short or long hair and combine it with light beach waves, a casual ponytail, a trendy bob hairstyle or short hairstyle as well as a relaxed messy bun.
In addition to the classic ponytail, a nice braided braid is also suitable for summer. The beautiful hairstyle gets even more of that holiday feeling if you braid a bandana or silk scarf into your hair. It is important with this bandana hairstyle that you use a cloth that is really big enough.
To do this, you first take your hair in a braid and tie it with a hair elastic. Then you knot the cloth around the elastic. Now you can start to braid your hair by connecting the two ends of the scarf with your braid.
Another hairstyling combines the bandana scarf and the plait so that the scarf can also be used as a hairband.
Fold the bandana and then place it on the top of your head. You can now braid the long ends and your loose hair with the 3-strand braiding technique and then secure it with an elastic band. Now just wrap the short ends of the bandana around the elastic and you have the perfect hairstyle for the next summer party.
Second favorite hairstyle after the ponytail in summer is the bun. Why? It goes without saying: whether strictly taken together or loosely tied in a messy bun - a bun is quick and easy, keeps our hair out of our faces, and is a little lifesaver when our hair just doesn't want it the way we want it. Can it get any better? Absolutely! With beautiful hair accessories, every simple topknot gets a completely new and exciting look. This is where the bandanas come in.
Just like with a ponytail, you can also decorate a bun with a bandana by wrapping it around the elastic and pinning it with hairpins or fastening it with a knot so that the ends stick out cheekily from the head. This look goes perfectly with a casual messy bun. But other bun hairstyles such as the top knot or the cheeky space buns look even more exciting with colorful scarves.
Instead of wrapping a scarf around our necks, we now much prefer to wrap it around our entire bun. Simply wrap the topknot with the bandana, gather the ends, and knot either above or below the bun so that the long ends can be draped nicely over the shoulders with a large headscarf.
This hairstyling looks particularly classy with a low bun that is tied deep at the back of the head - an absolute wow effect with compliments guaranteed.
Sometimes you just can't decide whether you want to wear your hair open or pinned up? It is precisely for these moments that hairstyles with half-open hair are the perfect solution. A casual half bun is quick and easy, in which you only gather the top outer hair into a bun.
You can also try the same game with a high ponytail. To integrate the bandana into the half-open hair, you can also knot or wrap it around your elastic.
It becomes particularly romantic if you separate two front sections of hair and tie the two strands at the back of the head with a scarf. Alternatively, you can braid the strands and then decorate them with a bandana. Instead of a normal knot, try a little loop.
