Quick, easy and eye-catching, i've broken down three styles so you can rock this trend throughout the spring and summer. Keep scrolling for the step-by-step!
Bow CrownTo complete this look, you'll need a head wrap that comes in a rectangular piece of fabric, like one below from The Wrap Life. This style is great if you want to put your hair up. Or, you can style it more like a headband with your hair out in the center.
Step 1: Lay the fabric flat across the back of your head, and bring the two ends to the front.
Twist 'N TuckThis look comes courtesy of Cult Gaia, whose turbands include a metal rod for security. Since it's like a headband, it can work with any hairstyle, but is commonly worn with a bun.
Step 1: Lay the headband flat across the back of your head, and bring the ends to the front.
Crowned WrapThis style is easy, thanks to the structure of Indira de Paris' wraps. It has a headband for easy application. You can easily tuck your hair into it, but it's looks great when your hair is down, as well.
Step 1: Put on the head wrap adjusting the band to your desired location, then tuck it into the wrap, so it isn't visible.
Add a dress and cute sunglasses (like the Quay sunglasses above), and you're ready to go!
