I recently came across a great blog with some fantastic tips on how to tie and style a turban and head scarf which I thought would be of good use to some of my clients who are suffering from hair loss, particularly those who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy and alopecia.
Turban and Head Scarf Tips
1) Buy a head scarf and wrap it around the back of your head then tie both pieces at the front to make a knotted turban which is perfect for covering the whole head and scalp.
2) Wrap a folded scarf around your head and then tie into a tight and neat bow at the front of your head for a super cute and everyday style.
3) Fold a scarf into a triangle, then place the scarf on your head with the center point of the triangle facing forward and the sides hanging down each of your shoulders. Grab both sides then bring them to the top of your head then twist them twice to create the knot. Once knotted bring both the sides to the back and then tie in a very tight knot to keep the turban in place. Please click here to view a visual tutorial. This is one of my person favs for its funky and quirky style, perfect for every day occasions.

4) Buy a thin head scarf and braid it into your hair as you plate your hair. You can do this with long length wigs and hair pieces, if you have a short wig not to worry simply tie the scarf around your hair line like a head band and knot the two pieces at the side of your head so they dangle down your shoulders. This style is a great little accessory to any outfit and works even better if you can find one that matches.
5) Buy a silky and funky retro headscarf and tie it in a knot at the front of your head for a super cool addition to any outfit.
6) Create a messy head wrap by folding your head scarf into a triangle then knot the ends together at the front or at the back, which ever you prefer and looks best but leave the ends un-tucked.
8) For a beautiful boho style with a rosette head scarf you have to fold the scarf and fit it around your head so both ends at the front of your head then bring the ends back around your head so it crosses over then cross it over again at the back of the head. Then bring the two ends back to the front and tie the scarf tight. Tie the ends in a double knot then wrap the ends around the knot to create a rosette. Then bring the ends to the back of your head knot together and tuck in so it looks neat. You can then mess around with the rosette till your happy with the look.
