Turbans and Bandanas : Spring Summer’s Hottest Trend + Tutorial

Turbans and bandanas not only look cool, but also work to tame the flyaways and work as comfortable hair statements! Here’s how to rock them!

This weather, the transition from Spring to Summer, gives us fashionistas the perfect reason to up our hemlines, wear lots of sunblock, ditch the boots and make way for sandals and flip-flops. And with all that heat, we just want to pull up our hair into buns, or well, down into fishtail braids, while we sip our sangrias.

But this season, you don’t want to stick to just those buns and braids, because turbans and bandanas, head-scarves and head-wraps are super-in right now! You can use the latest chic printed turbans and bandanas, or your spring scarves, your wool wraps, you can cover your whole head with it like a turban, or just wear it like a headband, or even combine the two styles – your choice!

This style was seen on the runway – from Arabic-inspired turbans by Saint Laurent to 80’s inspired bandanas by Moschino. Let’s take a look:

Bandanas and turbans have been around. We’ve seen them in Sex and the City on Carrie Bradshaw, and in Gossip Girl on Serena, but this time, we want to see it on ourselves!! Speaking of, check out Sarah Jessica Parker sporting a turban earlier this month:


And here’s a cool bandana style from Dolce Vita’s April collection:


And I see plenty scarves being sold at Forever 21 and Zara that would look very cool worked as turbans and bandanas. Here’s a really cool tutorial I found on YouTube that teaches how to tie a scarf into turban-style bandana, or something of that sort in many different ways!

Kay, I’m going out for some nice iced cappuccino now, and you know what accessory I’ll be wearing! 🙂 Bye!
