Final Fantasy Brave ExviusEdit

FFBE

A twisted headband meant to be wrapped over the forehead. It bolsters the spirit of the wearer as soon as it is put on, which allows him or her to focus better on the battlefield. The twist headband is especially favored by martial artists, who must concentrate all of their power into a single attack. If worn too loosely, there is a chance that it may come undone on the battlefield. Whereas if worn too tightly, it could cut off blood circulation. Thus, the right balance of power is needed when tying this headband.

EtymologyEdit

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.
