We’ve recently received several requests for a turban DIY and so, your wish is our command . . .
Before you start, tie your hair in a bun or ponytail. Fold a large square scarf in half into a triangle. Lay the scarf on your head with the center point of the triangle facing forward and the sides hanging down each of your shoulders. Making sure most of your hair is covered, grasp the length of each side and bring them to the top of your head, twisting twice to create a “knot”. (click images to enlarge)
Once you’ve twisted the ends twice into a knot, bring both sides together to the back of your head and tie it tight. Tuck all your loose ends under the back and front of the turban.
Voila, you’ve just made a turban! You can also create a turban-like headband using a rectangular scarf by repeating the same steps without covering all of your hair. Don’t forget the double twist and happy wrapping!

LOOOVE IT! Good work ladies. Have re-blogged.
LOVE LOVE LOVE! and what a pretty girl.
Turban is cool… model is gorgeous!
i have to admit that i would have never initially been inspired to wear a turban if it weren’t for this post. the fact that i haven’t washed my hair in a couple days (oops!) coupled with my over abundance of pretty scarves made the leap pretty easy though and i have to say, I AM IN LOVE! thanks!thanks!thanks so much for the continuing spot on tips, trends, and inspiration!
I’m now going to buy a scarf to do this with… ty HonestlyWTF x
woman in fur on bike. love her. need her in my life!
I do love turbans! All type:) and I wear them all the time.
Once I saw this i had to try! Wearing a turban is becoming my new favourite thing to wear! 😀
I have recently been wearing a turban and everyone looked at me funny but I think it´s an awesome way to cover a badhairday.:) I think I´ll try your way of putting it on soon.
I’m pretty good at this with a towel after a shower. I can whip that thing up so fast AND wear a cute cockatiel on my head. Let’s accessorize the turban! Glam! Sparkles on the knot! C/:-)
I love the scarf you’ve used to in your demonstration! Do you know a place were I might be able to find it? The color looks so good with the model’s suntanned skin!
I really Like this Post, although its a little confusing to me , it would really be nice if a video was made. I have always wanted to wear a Turban the way Indian men do ….:)
I was just wondering what size of scarf you used? I have a few square scarfs but none of them are big enough to twist in the front and tie in the back.
wow! i love the return of the turban for women, it was one of the most iconic pieces of women’s fashion in the 30s and 40s, but it just disappeared. Like many things, i think a turban renaissance is upon us haha! I’m a Sikh guy, and i wear a turban because of my religion…but my religion is just one part of it, i think it just looks so good and different! i just wish i lived in a place which was more accepting of it…fyi, never move to edmonton, canada lol.
Love love love! By the way, where is your necklace from?? It is so pretty and I’m looking for one like it!
dis is so cool! i tried it n it looks gr8. thnx fr posting dis grl! <3
I was wondering what are the dimensions of the scarf and what is the best type of fabric to use for such a scarf. I, too, have always wanted to wear something like this. Thank you for posting the instructions.
Don’t know if it’d work my my long hair, but I want to try the headband version. LOVE!
I love this! I am an American Muslim and I am always looking for new and fun ways to cover my hair. Love that this could become a trend because I have always thought turbans look so elegant on women…and men, too!
I would have never tried this if it weren’t for this post. I tried it out, but I let my hair completely down, and it looks fantastic!
People have been complimenting me a lot, because it’s unusual, jet great. I’M IN LOVE!
You should totally do a DIY on how to make a turban, not just how to tie one and another tutorial on how to create the necklace in the last picture. <3
QUE COSA MARAVILLOSA FUE EL TURBANTE Y HOY POR NECESIDADES FISICAS RENACE combinandolo con ropa casual o de gran gala da un toque diferente………gracias por enseñar como realizarlo
Hey! Great post, a more simple and quicker way is with a TURBAI – the turban from Dubai, it is one size fits all, pre tied, Lycra/polyester, breathable, and is being widely used as a solution to hide fray hairs, you can check them out at http://www.facebook.com/robertoruivodubai
Great Tutorial. Always have a hard trying to tie a turban. Can’t wait to try it.
Need something to cover my hair when I have been swimming as my hair is such a mess. Going to find a square of material and give it a go. Remember my mum having a turban just after the war and I was a young girl

Like the others you have not answered what size is the cloth you used ? Please answer.
@Vampy, this is an old post and unfortunately, I no longer have the scarf but any large square scarf will do. I would say anything from 70-80 inches.
