Gathering the Necessary Materials

Make sure to choose one large enough in length (around 6 meters) so it wraps easily around your head with no pusles when tied up tightly. Additional items such as pins, clips and other decorative pieces may be needed if you plan on accessorizing further after tying the initial wrap knots into place; these are optional but highly recommended!

Learning About Turban Styles

It is important to learn about the different styles of turbans before tying one. Generally speaking, there are two main types: Khulla and Patka. The Khulla type covers most of the head while a Patka style starts from the forehead down over part or all of your ears but tends to leave more hair exposed at the back. Before wearing either turban make sure that you have clean and tidy long enough hairs which can be put up underneath it as this will ensure an even look when wrapping around your head in layers; You should also consider using gel for extra hold if desired too!

Use both hands to grab this X-shape from both ends and fold toward you while pulling down gently with your fingers as if forming a triangle at top where forehead meets head. As you are now holding two separate pieces, twist each corner towards itself making sure that formed double cones close up on themselves firmly without any gaps or holes visible between them when viewed from above.

Maintenance Tips

To keep the turban in good shape, regular maintenance is essential. Before wearing a turban again after washing it, make sure to carefully brush out any knots or tangles using either fingers (for light fabrics) or an extra-soft bristle brush (for heavier materials). Taking the time to ensure there are no snags will guarantee you have smooth fabric and layering when wrapping your head deeper into each knot. Additionally be mindful of sweat build up which can deteriorate material over time – use clean towels between uses if necessary! Finally for storage roll turbans gently as opposed folding them - this also helps maintain edge tightness ensuring longer wear with ease during future wrappings.
