By Cathy Mercer

Wearing of turbans among women is fast becoming popular as people want to bring that ethnic and eccentric look. Also such head gears can help hide bad hair fashionably. That is why many ladies want to know how to tie a turban for women in order to look differently.

The first method is the Riveter wrap. Here one takes a large square scarf, folds it diagonally then places the straight long edge of cloth at the back of head. Then the ends of the material are tied at the front of head lightly. The hanging piece of cloth from behind is then taken to the front and tucked under the knot. This way, hair is gathered inside the scarf. One then tightens the knot.

Another simple way of tying this head gear is the forehead wrap. One can have her hair pushed backwards or in a ponytail. A square clothing folded diagonally to form an elongated triangle is then placed along the forehead using its straight edge. With the rest of scarf pointing towards the neck, a person will tie the ends of clothing in a tough knot at the back.

A common wrap is the forehead band. One can do this in several ways. First is by gathering hair into a low pony and tying the material around the base of ponytail in a single tie. The second way is by folding a scarf to form a band at tying it like a bow around the head.

For people who want a traditional wrap, the crown style is one of it. In this method, one folds a square scarf diagonally after which the folded side is lined along the front of the head with two ends hanging from each side. One end should be made longer than the other and then they are both pulled to the back and tied lightly. Then one twists the ends to form a thick band that is spiraled around the head forming a crown. The last tip is tied to the first end at the back.

African gele is a way of wearing scarf usually done by West African women using a special piece of cloth but it can also be done with the normal scarf. The material used is folded to a width of almost six inches. It is then wrapped around the head to the front with the right side of the material one half longer than the left side. Then a person ties the right side over the left side and until both ends are out and it forms a bow.

Rosette wrap is the final way of tying the gear. This one uses rectangular scarf folded diagonally with the long edge lined on the forehead. Both the ends of the cloth are then taken to one side of the head and then tied into a strong knot. The ends will hang and one takes one end, twists and spirals it around the knot. The same is also done to the other end thus forming a rosette. Tips of material are then tucked or held with a pin.

Therefore for people who were wondering on how to tie a turban for women there are many ways to do so as seen above. An individual can use brightly colored or patterned scarves to rock this look. To get write the above style, one needs practice.
