Description: A patterned handkerchief, formerly used as a cover for women's curlers or as a street gang accessory. Popularized by Axl Rose, the 'Do Rag was folded in half (into a triangle shape), then the three ends were tied and tucked at the back of the head, thus producing a skullcap sort of effect. The typical colors of red and blue gave way to the manufacturing of pink and a veritable rainbow of other colors as the fad progressed.
