How to Tie Bandanas Like Rosie the Riveter


Rosie the Riveter is an iconic female figure made popular during World War II when she was used to represent all the woman working in factories while the men were overseas fighting. Rosie came onto the scene sporting a blue collared shirt, flexing her arm muscles with a folded-up, red handkerchief knotted atop her head. You, too, can sport a folded bandanna headband just like Rosie. The bandanna will keep your hair out of your face and take only a few minutes to put on.

  • Fold the bandanna in half diagonally to form a triangle.

  • Lay the triangle of fabric in front of you with the long edge facing away from you. Fold the point closest to you over 1 1/2 inches. Repeat this fold over and over again until the entire bandanna is rolled up into a long strip.

  • Wrap the strip of bandanna around your head with the middle of the strip near the back of your neck, bringing the two ends together near the front of your hairline.

  • Tie the two ends of the bandanna strip together in a double knot.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use bobby pins to hold the bandanna in place if you are having trouble keeping it on your head.
