A turban is traditional headwear that can be worn by both men and women commonly in North Africa and South Asia.
Not only is it the most preferred choice during hot days of summer, but it is also very fashionable and will allow you to slay, look stylish and modern and be comfortable at the same time. Talk about a win-win! You don’t know how to tie a turban? Relax, this step-by-step guide will turn you into a pro overnight.
The scarf should measure 1.5 – 1.8m of cloth in length and about 15cm in width. First, take the fabric and fold it so that it is exactly divided into two. Then, place the folded fabric at the back of your head and ensure that the ends of the cloth are held in front of your ears.
To keep the scarf steady on your head, tie a small knot with the fabric just at the middle of your forehead. If the knot is not firm, you may tie another knot. The smaller the knot, the better. You have to ensure that it is not too massive.
The next step is to gently twist the ends of the cloth around your head. Continuously twist until both ends of the scarf are now wrapped around your head. A hack to making your job easier is to start from the last knot tied on your forehead and then wrap the fabric layer by layer. Each layer should be in a position higher than the previous.
Your turban is already done. Shift the scarf across your head so it fits properly and make any extra adjustments if need be. However, if you do not like all your hair being covered underneath the turban, you are free to try other creative styles, use bobby pins and leave out hairs in places of your choice.
