TURBANS | A Revelation
The moment I convinced myself that I could wear a piece of cloth on my head and not look like a mama (older woman), I was in heaven. Thanks to stylish people like June Ambrose and our very own Nancie Mwai, I have learnt how to tie this piece of cloth in a fun, youthful way and even have a Pinterest board with ideas on how to tie turbans (as well as more inspiration on natural hair).
I turn to turbans when I need to cover up bad hair days like when my braids need undoing or my natural hair is uncombed because it is driving me mad. Since becoming a mum, I have turned to turbans more and more because I now have less time to get ready and to make time to go to the salon and get my hair done. But I am changing this. I am trying to include turbans in my day to day style and hope to feature them more here on the blog.
I have been using my scarves to make turbans since I don’t get to wear them as often as I used to. I like that I am able to stretch their usability and the fact that they add more color and interest to my outfits. When I started tying turbans, I used to use muted colors but I have since become more daring and I am not afraid to wear a myriad of colors on my head.
Below are a pics of the different turbans I have had. Some have already been featured on the blog while others are yet appear on the blog.
