The cloth itself is called 手ぬぐい (tenugui). It's just a cloth made of cotton material, the size of a face towel, with no sewing done. On your second link, both workers on the left page are wearing tenugi on their heads.

I assume, however, that you are referring to the way that it's worn. There are indeed names for each style. But I realize that tenugi aren't typically tied at the front. I suppose it's not practical.

Tenugui are typical souvenirs nowadays, and they come in various designs, often as novelties. Many people even collect them.
