Tails Hanging Down
Just throw the Pretied on and you're ready to go. Bandannas 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 pretied to start with and you tie it, it will result in a short tailed look. Many women like to tie the tails of the pretied for the feeling of security the tighter tie provides.

This look is accomplished by twisting the tails around your pony/bun. This can only be done with a long tailed pretied bandanna like the DaCee Designs 14 inch long tailed pretied.

How should I wash my Pretied Bandanna head scarf?
The general rule of thumb is - the more gentle you are, the longer the Pretied will last.
We recommend hand washing in cold water and laying it flat to dry on a towel to prevent stretching.
Please note that Pretied Israeli Tichels (also known as Pretied Mitpachot or Pretied 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 the lifespan of the Israeli Tichel Pretied. Never Put a Pretied Israeli Tichel in the Washing Machine!
