The classic turban knot style is a really easy and original way to tie a tichel. It is perfect for hot summer days when you want something light and colorful to hold all your hair back and keep your hair off your neck. It has a great fitted support and makes covering your hair a dream. The best part is that you can design your own tichel! Simply choose a headscarf of your choice with a turban knot head wrap in whichever color you like and you have it. You can go a little darker and simple for a dressy look and loud and colorful for an everyday or funky look. It’s up to you – be original!
In the demonstration above we used a hidden height undercover to make it look like there is a head full of hair. You can simply put your hair in a bun, or for those with thin hair or hair loss a hidden height undercover will do the trick.
1. When tying our headscarf in the Classic Turban knot style, we experimented with our Purple Oblong Tichel with Flowers. However, you may use any oblong headscarf of your choice. Start by placing your oblong rectangular headscarf centered on your head. If the head scarf is very long, fold it in half first.
2. Take both sides of the headscarf and make a tie or knot in back of your neck.
3. Now, gently take the whole headscarf that’s hanging down and tuck it in and under the knot you just made. It should look like a snood with no tails hanging down.
4. In the demonstration we chose a white turban knot head wrap. Choose the color turban knot you want and place it as the band to support and hold the head scarf in place.
