How to Make Jjimjilbang Head Towels (Seen in Korean Dramas)

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 😉

    I ‘d like to know if this yangmeori is only suitable for female to wear . I think it looks cute on all kids. I would like to know you and your co host name if you don’t mind. I really enjoy watching your videos on YouTube . It help those who interested in Korean culture a great deal to learn it in a fun way. Keep up the good works and thank you.
