How Do I Tie a Bandanna On My Head So it Looks Like a Headband and Not Like I am Spring Cleaning?

by Mary
(saint peters, mo)

I am struggling with how to wear my hair under the helmet. I have tried headbands and ponytails, but I can't figure out how to tie a bandanna properly. I have medium length hair and a round face, so when I cover up my hair with a skull cap I look like one of the chipmunks from the animated movie! lol. Any help on how to have a good look after riding would be appreciated.

I'm with Helen Wheels!

That is a good one Helen Wheels! But you are correct. If you wear the right low cut shirt at least no man will be looking at your hair. All in all if I'm enjoying my ride then I don't really care what anyone thinks about how I look when I get off my bike. I have found that most are in awe that I'm riding a roadking anyway. That fact just really messes with them to see me riding such a big bike when I'm only 5'2" and growing shorter every year with age. LOL

Cancervive the look!
by: Phatgal

You can wear a bandanna and not look like a cancer survivor, however you may look like a chemo patient because that is actually when we wear them; when we are bald. And we are not going for a "good look either," but baldness makes some (other) people uncomfortable. Sheesh.

Regardless, you don't fold the corner halfway, you only fold it 1/3 - 1/4th of the way depending upon the size of the bandanna, and the size of your head. Experiment with different sizes along with different hairdos and find what works best for you ;-)

A Nice Hat!
by: Sassy

I always just wear my doorag on my head, but I realize others don't like them. I have found that different ones do fit differently so I always try them on when I shop for them. Also different colors just look stupid so I'm really careful when I buy them. My sons girlfriend has several hats and just puts one on whenever they stop and take off their helmets. She has some really cute ones and picks one out to match her outfits for the day.

A couple of suggestions.
by: Anita - Sac, CA

Have you tried looking up how to do this on You Tube? I know it sounds strange, but I actually found a video on how to fold a bandana on You Tube awhile back when I was trying to figure out how to do the same thing.

Also, check out a Buff: http://www.buff.es/us/catalog_entry.php

I love mine because I don't have to worry about tying it or whether it's tight enough. I can also wear it several different ways depending on my needs.

Skull Cap
by: Lynn - Florida

I always feel like a cancer survivor if I wear my skull cap after a ride. No offense to anyone, but it's not a good look on me either.

Hair? What hair?
by: Helen Wheels

Push up bra and a tight low cut t-shirt will eliminate any hair problems after the helmet comes off.
