If you’re a Korean drama or movie fan, you’ve probably come across your favorite Korean celebrities with towels on their heads like Princess Leia. Now you can pretend like you’re living out your favorite Korean drama scene by making your own Korean jjimjilbang head towel!
These sauna helmets are put on to keep sweat from going into your eyes as well as to look mega cute. The name of these commonly seen Korean drama headwear is 양머리 (yangmeori) in Korean, which translates to sheep head (think of a ram with curling horns).
Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Fold the towel into thirds (the long way)
Step 2: Roll the sides outwards until desired length (both sides)
Step 3: Open up and insert head
Yay! Now you can pretend you’re bffs with Yoo Jae-Seok on Happy Together
