Turban Headwraps are absolutely great for those lazy days you just don’t feel like doing your hair (my personal using). Turbans are also great for style. They’re extremely simple and easy to do, at little to no cost. Below, I’ll be showing you how to complete one. ❤️
Before we begin, I personally use scarves that I purchase from thrift stores for my turbans. The scarf that was used in the pictures below was purchased from old navy, but the rest I usually just purchase from plato’s closet. A big, square piece of cloth around the house also would be great.
So, let’s get started.
- I usually place my hair in a ponytail before I begin, not too tight, just wrapped in the rubber band very lightly. I don’t do any brushing, or gelling my hair down, because like I said, very light. If not, it will be noticed through your turban.
- Cover your entire head and bring the two sections into the front of your face.
- Start braiding the sections almost like you’re braiding your hair. As you get closer towards the ends, start to form a tighter braid, it usually does this naturally.
- After finishing the braid, begin twisting it around and making a circle where your forehead would be. If the braid is tight enough, it will usually do this naturally.
- Make sure you tuck in any pieces of cloth that may seem to be sticking out. Sometimes, I wrap a rubber band around the circle to ensure its tightness, almost like I’m doing a ponytail. In this photo, luckily, I didn’t have to do that.
Turban complete! See, now wasn’t that simple? Thank you to those of you who took the time out to read. I hope you enjoyed!
