Hair accessories have made a strong comeback in the last few years; they've been going strong on the runways and have trickled all the way down to our vanities. But beyond the oversized barrettes and knotted headbands is our accessory du jour: bandanas. So, we took to Instagram to find the best bandana hairstyles out there for inspiration. And while bandanas have been around forever, these 30 styles feel entirely fresh.
Add Some Barrettes
Secure your bandana in place with some chic barrettes clipped on to the side. (Who cares if they're more for show than function?) We love the three lined up here, and the piecey, effortless bandana style.
Is anyone getting a J. Lo flashback right now? Channel the '90s with a white bandana, pieces in front, and a '90s-inspired lipstick.
Who needs scrunchies? (Okay, we do, but we'll make an exception here.) This bandana-wrapped-bun—that's likely secured in place with a hair tie underneath—makes a cool statement, especially with this bandana's fiery-red hue.
We can't complain when monochrome is involved. Match your bandana hairstyle to your makeup (like this coordinating pink lipstick-and-eyeshadow combo).
