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

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!
