Leaving the tie rolled for a few days can help restore its original shape. After unrolling the tie, hang it for a while to achieve the desired straightness before storing.
You can also carefully iron the tie to remove wrinkles but this depends on the fabric. Use the proper heat setting on the iron. The fabric can burn with very high temperatures. You can also use a clothing steamer to steam out the wrinkles while it is hung. Caution should also be used when using steamer. Ironing and steaming a tie at the same time is not good.
