If you got your love bite at a place where it isn’t concealed by your shirt or sweater, you can try wearing the right accessory. Here are some accessories to try:

  • Wear a scarf if you normally do so
  • Drape a sweater across your shoulders
  • Stick a bandage over the love bite and makeup a story
  • Hide the hickey using your long hair

While picking your choice to conceal a hickey, make sure you’ve tried them before. If you haven’t worn a scarf before, your friends and family are more likely to observe it. Don’t drape a sweater across your shoulder, if you normally don’t do so.

If you’re sticking a bandage over the love bite, your story should seem to be genuine. Girls can say that they burnt their skin while straightening or curling their hair using a hair-styler. Boys can say that they got a bug bite.

If you’re using your long hair to cover your hickey, make sure that your hair is at the right place.
