OOTD: Hair Turban How To

A hair turban is a great accessory to keep around if you're a long haired girl, like me.  My bangs are growing out now and they're annoying, so I like to keep them out of my face by wearing a top knot or pony tail.  But because I prefer the way I look with my hair down, (and I try to look presentable), I will not always venture out in public in a messy bun.

In comes the hair turban, the chic hair accessory that can extend the life of your blowout.
Click below for my step-by-step on how to wear one!

 How To Wear A Hair Turban:
  • I wear mine with the elastic band over the back of my head,
  • Nudge the back elastic band upward slightly, to create a little volume at the back of my head.  
  • Center the front knot of the turban just beneath my hairline.  
  • I slick back my bangs and brush the rest of my hair back, as if I was going to pull it up into a  loose, messy, ponytail with no center part. 
  • Pull your hair down, covering your ears.

For this look, I paired a slogan tee / graphic tee ("Coco Made Me Poor") and some slouchy pants. The tee is oversized with wide armholes so I put on a cute lace bralette underneath.  I'm once again, mixing navy and black.  I think that if you're going to do a hair accessory like the one I have on, it is best to keep the entire look relaxed and laid back.
