4 Quick and Easy Turban Headwrap Styles for Natural Hair
How I Style and Protect My Natural Hair using Scarves
After being inspired by my cousin-sister-friend, Dani of ChoiceConfections , I started wearing crowns, again! I hadn’t worn a turban since my 2014 visit to Cape Town, South Africa with Tamron Hall and forgot how fly and life simplifying they are!
One morning a couple of weeks ago, I had a Zoom call coming up with 10 minutes to spare. I hadn’t showered or changed clothes since the night before, didn’t feel like rocking a baseball cap (I’ve done it many times lol), and didn’t have time to bun appropriately, so I brushed my teeth, washed my face, put on a lippie, and reached for one of the scarves I’ve been wearing around my shoulders for the last two seasons! I threw it over my messy pineapple, and basically made a bantu knot in the front (like the first tutorial in the video below) with the extra material.
After LOVING and wearing that for a couple of days, I decided I
wanted NEEDED more volume on top! So I went to Youtube University and found this gem of a video by Kilahmazing and tried the second style. It’s SO easy, so quick, and super regal. But easy for me still means having to try at least twice before getting it right– it’s like an art project every time. Turbans are absolutely my new thing, so don’t say ish to me when you see me in it tomorrow, and next week, and three months from now, and 12 years later, too!
As an aside, I’m pretty sure I was executing a version of style 1 and 4 while in Africa with the penguins!
