Put a turban on it!

It’s gloomy and cold in England these days, and I really miss tropical weather.

To escape the freeze, Ella and I visited Morocco over Easter, and we tried out turbans almost every single day 🙂


Here we are at Jardin Majorelle.

If you’re in warm weather, and it gets too humid and your hair frizzes up, a turban is the perfect way to look stylish (with bird’s nest hair underneath it :D) Plus, you don’t need any clips or pins to hold it down, and its super-easy and very fast!

I’ve done some videos on my four favourite styles of wrapping a turban. You will need a long shawl for these looks 🙂

ps. I did a voiceover because I was absent-mindedly playing Kenny Rogers in the background. You may disapprove of my choosing to listen to Kenny Rogers.

1. Moroccan Turban

A classic one, I learnt this while in Marrakech. This is a simpler version of the Moroccan turban that the Berbers wear when they are out in the desert.

2. Moroccan Turban 60’s Style

This style was taught to me by some Bedouins who took me on a death ride on a camel. It is very simple, and looks very chic!

3. Retro Turban

I came up with this after experimenting with the shawl for hours. This is the same style I did in the first photo of me and Ella 🙂

4. African Turban

I looked at a couple of YouTube tutorials for this one, and came up with a style I am comfortable with 🙂

Until next time, and stay fab! xx
