DIY No Sew Hair Turban

Hi Everyone! 
It's great to be posting again, I missed blogging and I miss having this forum to share what I know, and to pass on any little tricks that I pick up along the way. I'm sharing a very simple DIY which was was featured in today's Flair Magazine in the Jamaica Gleaner.

A turban is an easy way to add glamour to an everyday outfit and is also very useful for covering up during those bad hair days or when you're in between hair appointments.

In this project, I chose a blue fabric to feature the beautiful Dazzling Blue - a peppy shade of cobalt blue which the style influencers at Pantone selected as the colour for Spring  2014. Blue is a universally flattering colour and since I've had those shorts for over a year, I figured I would feature them here; also I figured that the blue turban would be a good contrast against my dark hair.


Stretchable Fabric

  • Cut the fabric in a rectangle about 8" wide x 26"(long enough to go around your head with excess left over to tie a knot).
  • Cut a small strip of fabric. Use the strip to tie a knot where you want the centre of the turban.
  • Wrap the rectangle around your head, then knot at the nape of your neck.
  • Tuck the excess fabric under the turban.
You may add a brooch to the centre of your turban for a glamorous vintage appeal; or go bold by choosing a fabric in a punchy tribal print. Additionally, take your turban up a notch by adding embellishments with rhinestones, studs or pearls.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Rochele on this shoot, and wanted to showcase her hairstyling and make-up skills (and as luck would have it her photography skills ;) with my followers. She is very easy to work with because she has a very calming spirit -future brides take note, and welcomes feedback and input. She makes home calls, which is ideal for us busy moms and because Rochele is so fashionable herself, she understands current trends and how to achieve them.

I've been very busy these past few weeks because a lot of new doors have been opened up for me since this blog; I am eager to share them with you but only when the time is right, and I'm truly grateful for all the endless possibilities that lie ahead.
