Soaking up sun

Turban headband — Make your own

Easily create and customize your own DIY turban headband by visiting your nearest fabric store and slicing off a piece of your favorite pattern! Start by placing the middle of the length of the fabric on the back of your head. Pull the ends forward, toward the front of your head, and crisscross them twice on your forehead. Wrap the ends around back, tie off and voila — your DIY turban headband is complete! Leave the ends hanging or tuck them in, your preference!

Such a versatile accessory, this hair piece is a must-have! Get out there with your headband and start “turban” eyes everywhere you go!
