From Scarf to Turban

It's been a while since I blogged about anything. I got caught up with client requests for feather earrings, work and school. So here is my last post for the month!

I love turbans but sadly I can't find one that has cute prints on it and with some quirky embellishments as well. Most turbans I see are simple, plain wraps but what I want is a full blown one that has a cute print. I saw this video tutorial from thefashioncitizen on youtube a few weeks ago and thank God I have a really cute printed scarf to turn into a full blown turban. All you need is a square shaped scarf of your choice and follow the steps below. :D

Step #1. Fold the scarf into half and form a triangle


Step #2. Place it over your head with the tip of the triangle facing where your face is as shown below


Step #3. Pull the ends together in the middle and twist it once


Step #4. Twist it twice


Step #5. Pull the ends to the back of your head and tie the ends into a knot twice to secure


Step #6. Tuck in all loose ends inside


Step #7. Tuck inside the ends in front

Step #8. Do a few adjustments for better fit and you now have your full blown turban using your scarf!


I like adding a bit of jazz to my turban so i pinned this silver brooch in front.

And for the entire outfit...
