Etymology[edit | edit source]
A hachimaki (鉢巻, "helmet-scarf") is a stylized headband (bandana) in Japanese culture, usually made of red or white cloth, worn as a symbol of perseverance, effort, and/or courage by the wearer. When worn as a twisted headband, it is called a Nejigi-Hachimaki. More practically, it also prevents sweat from flowing off the forehead into the eyes.
