Hey BUDS! A lot of you have been wearing our headbands as face covers. So many, in fact, that we came up with a little advice for you, and a few ideas of some cool, new ways to wear them as a face cover!

A few of you have asked about our boho headbands and whether they can be worn as a mask, so we are letting you know…

our headbands are multifunctional and can be worn on the neck (neckerchief!) and easily pulled over your nose, mouth and chin. They will give you a little extra protection from nature’s elements. And, when this at-home-hibernation passes, they will continue to be a favorite headband you can wear every day for yoga, jogging, or just because. These are not medical-grade facemasks, but with a little modification, they are close!”

There are a few creative ways to wear these boho headbands as masks… Of course, you can just use it as-is and slide it down over your face. But, if you put in a little extra work, we found a couple more ways to be able to add a filter and upgrade your mask game.

Face Cover #1: Single Layer, over your mouth and nose

This one is simple, just pull it over your mouth and nose and be on your way! It is simple and easy, but some of us want a little extra…

How can I add a filter? How can this mask better protect me and others? What if I want even more layers? Well, we have a couple more ideas!

Face Cover #2: Double Layer no-sew, filter ready, with a tie

List of Supplies you will need for Face Cover #2:

  1. A Soul Flower Headband of any color or style
  2. A comfortable string (here we used a shoelace, keep it soft, avoid twine)
  3. A CDC approved filter (here we use a coffee filter, you can also use blue shop towels, air filter, vacuum bag, paper towel, etc.)

We had our Bud Rachel cut the back of the headband in 1/2, slide both hair ties on and then sew the back up with a center stitch! (We didn’t get a photo of that process but trust us, it is simple!!)
