Ask ThinkThru: How To Tie a Glam 60s Style Turban

This weekend, I’m having a Swanky 60s Birthday Soiree. One of my friends told me she wanted to wear a turban but had no clue how to make one. So I emailed my friend Sabina Les, who makes the most fab silk scarves, to share her expertise in another ThinkThruFashion how-to guest post. Here’s Sabina’s step-by-step tutorial on how to tie a glam turban…

Movie Stars Wearing Turbans All time glamour symbols like Joan Crawford, Faye Dunway and Joan Collins frequently wore turban styles created from scarves. They knew that a scarf tied low on the forehead makes the eyes and eyebrows stand out in a sexy way. For extra eye impact either match the color of the scarf or choose the opposite complimenting hue. For instance, with the scarf used here, Architecture Blue, both blue and brown eyes colors would appear more intense. You can use bobby pins to secure the scarf style in place. Here are some of my step-by-steps on how to create contemporary and fashionable turban styles out of a large square silk printed scarf.
