These days I've been trying to make my hairstyles last longer. I suppose what that really means is that I haven't been washing my hair as much as I usually do. While I've tried to do this many times before, I can still only go about two days sans shampoo as day three usually equals a greasy matted look. Not the most flattering style in my opinion. Now if ever there was a head covering for that final day, it has to be the turban. I mean, there has to be a reason it's referred to as the cache-misère in French which translates to hide misery in English. That sounds about right! Personally, I'll be trying out this look especially with the onset of cooler weather. This 1920s turban DIY is definitely the best I've found!
First, take a piece of soft, pliable silk 36 inches wide, a yard and an eighth long. On the length of the silk, measure the depth of your head from forehead to neck. Leaving this length untouched, cut the remaining entire length in half. Shirr the edge of the uncut piece to hold the turban across the top of your forehead. This done, now follow the directions as illustrated
The second step is to cross the two pieces of silk in the back, one over the other toward the front. Position three gives you the chance for a coquettish pose, and also time to drape the left hand piece across the from of your head.
Drape the right piece over the left and so finish the front. Now do a little work behind your own back. Pull the turban tight to prevent a slightly groggy look. tuck the ends neatly under the edge. Voila! Now you've solved your bad hair day with a one easy 1920s turban DIY!
