2. Tie a knot with the scarf in middle of your forehead; you can tie the knot once, or twice for extra security. ( Do not make the knot too tie, to avoid discomfort, and do not make it too bulky, or it will stock out when you are done).
3. Twist the scarf in your hands around your head, until you have used all of the scarf. Start twisting from the base where you tied the knot, continue until you have wrapped both ends of the scarf around your head. Wrap the scarf layer by layer. The layers in front should move higher and higher, while you can just wrap around one layer between the back of your ear repeatedly.
4. When you have almost run out of scarf, Tuck the remaining scarf underneath the scarf in the back. You can make adjustments if necessary. Yes! You have just successfully tied your turban.
Note that for this version of turban, all of you hair is covered. If you like to leave some hair coming out the top, then all you need do is leave a space when wrapping the scarf around your head.
