How do I wear a Pre-tied Bandana Head Scarf?



Tails Hanging Down
Just throw the pre-tied on and you're ready to go. Bandanas come with different tail lengths, so check the given measurements to find the right one for you.

Tails Tied up
This particular picture shows long tails tied up to resemble a medium tail length.
If you are wearing a medium length pre-tie to start with and you tie it, it will result in a short tailed look. Many women like to tie the tails of the pre-tied for the feeling of security the tighter tie provides.

Israeli Tichel Look
This look is accomplished by twisting the tails around your pony/bun. This can only be done with a long tailed pre-tied bandana like the DaCee Designs 14 inch long tailed pre-tie.

Bandana Look
This Look is achieved by placing the pre-tie on top of your hair, wig, or hat fall, with the hair hanging down.




How do I figure out the right size for me?


Most companies make Pre-tied Bandanas with a one size fits all cap. The general rule is that each company has their own unique fit. Here is a general guide towards the companies we carry.

1) DaCee Designs - DaCee is quickly emerging as one of the most popular higher end manufacturers of Pre-tied Bandanas. We carry a wide selection of their pre-tied bandanas. They come in Lycra, cotton and velour with or without appliques as well as their Foam filler pre-tied bandana which is a pre-tied with added height in the front (for those with no hair or hair loss). We also carry their print pre-tied bandanas in many different styles and colors. Their pre-tied bandanas generally come in long or short tails. Women like their cap size because it offers a secure and fitted fit on ones head, women with smaller heads especially like the DaCee fit.

2) Uptown Girls Snoods - Uptown is one of the oldest manufacturers of Women's Headwear. They have a large selection of Pre-tied bandanas with appliques- with or without height as well as print pre-tied bandanas, berets and of course their Israeli Tichel pre-tied bandana. Their cap size is of the medium variety. It offers a comfortable fit for women with average sized heads and has enough fabric to allow for your hair to sit comfortably inside the Tichel. Their tails are long and also tend to be wider than the DaCee Designs.

3) Landana - Landana - previously called "LadyBug" is an Israeli Pre-tied Head Scarf and we bring them in for they tend to have a different look then their American counterparts, as well as for the coolness of their fabrics which are meant to be worn comfortably in the heat of the Israeli summer. The fit of their Pre-tied Bandana's tend to have a more secure and fitted fit, still providing a roomie and airy comfort due to their fine and soft fabric. They carry a wide selection of exclusive Print and Applique pre-tied bandanas in many different styles and designs. An added reason why many women like Landana Headscarves is because they have fabric covering up the elastic in the back so one does not feel the elastic on their neck.



4) Cherie - Cherie, like Uptown is made of a roomier fit and allows for the hair in the back to be comfortably tucked up. We carry a wide variety of their velour, lycra, and cotton pre-tied bandanas with or without appliques. In addition, we also carry a wide selection of their print pre-tied bandanas in many different styles, colors and designs. It fits a little looser around the head than others which many women find extremely comfortable. Cherie Pre-tieds also come in 2 different tail length, short and long.

How should I wash my Pre-tied Bandana head scarf?


The general rule of thumb is - the more gentle you are, the longer the pre-tied will last.
We recommend hand washing in cold water and laying it flat to dry on a towel to prevent stretching.


Please note that Pre-tied Israeli Tichels (also known as Pre-tied Mitpachot or Pre Tied Head Scarves) with lurex should be treated the same as regular Israeli Tichels. They should be hand washed and layed flat to dry. Doing so will lengthen th lifespan of the Israeli Tichel Pre-tied. Never Put a Pre-tied Israeli Tichel in the Washing Machine!
