Different ways in which you can wear your Bandana
There are many ways to wear your scarf, and below are some that will help you make those an important part of your personality and perception.
Lay and straighten the scarf on a plane surface, and then overlay one of the ends of the scarf over the end that is diagonally opposite to it. Hold the Bandana with the two ends of the longest side of the triangular-folded cloth.

You can see this kind of bandanas or formally colored ones around the necks of waiters or hospitality staff in motels.

Ensure that when tying your Bandana like this, it is always below the hairline or will just come loose.
This technique of tying a bandana is quite the opposite of how you tie a pirate bandana. You fold the Bandana the same way; just the loose part of the Bandana is on the front part of the head, and the part you hold is over the back, and the knots are made over the front. Similar to the previous style, the loose part of the Bandana is covered with the knot to keep it fixated over the head.

Classic Bandana Tie
Make a triangular shape with your Bandana by folding it along the opposite corners. Now, hold the Bandana with the longest side of the triangle, place it on the back of your neck, and make multiple knots of the ends of the Bandana in front of your neck. While tying the Bandana, make sure that the Bandana is decently tight and that there is no fluttering or loose tie left in front of your neck.
Around Your Face
Tying a bandana is quite similar to a classical bandana tie. Fold your Bandana into a triangular shape, and level the longest side of the triangle right under your eyes with an in-between gap of one and a half inches. Tie the ends of the Bandana on the back of your head, going across your ears for a better tie.
Around Your Thigh, Ankle, or Wrist
Fold your Bandana to a triangle shape, then lay it down over a flat surface. Now, roll the loose end of the Bandana towards the largest length by folding it over itself multiple times. Or, lessen the size of the Bandana by simply wringing it oddly from the middle of the Bandana.
Then, double knots tie the Bandana over your wrist or ankle. At the same time, only the first of the two methods is better suited if you want to tie the Bandana over your thigh.
