If you always wanted a slightly more daring take at boho, then the turban beauty style is apt for you. It is more eye-catching than a strand of beads around your forehead and less shocking than Carmen Miranda’s headgears – making it an appropriate style that you can play around with. Another advantage of this style is that it provides a barrier to the head, protecting it from direct sunlight – to give you some respite. And, it makes more of a fashion statement than a cap. The style is also good for bad hair days! So, let us give you further insight into this style to help you rock the look.

This style would look best with a maxi dress. You can wear a halter, off-shoulder or spaghetti strap maxi dress. The model, as seen in the picture, is wearing an outfit which is subtle in color and has subdued prints. However, you can choose a more vibrant and colourful attire. Also, do ensure that your maxi dress is not in a solid color, and has prints on it. Select a dress that is cotton based. For more idea on what type looks good, you can always glance at our elaborate article on the maxi dress.

Rock the Look: Turban Beauty
If you want a totally in-your-face look then opt for heavy makeup. If you feel that the turban in itself is going to take up too much attention, then keep the makeup absolutely minimal.
If you have mid-sized or long length hair then scrunch it up in a messy bun or else the turban might get in the way. If you feel that you can handle open hair with the turban – then do up your hair in waves. This will look more boho when combined with the head accessory.

The stylization is the key aspect of this look – and the main focus is on the hair turban. Now, if you thought the only way to achieve this style was actually buying a turban – then you couldn’t be further from the truth. Look in your cupboard, there would scarves or stoles in there – you just have to use these multipurpose beauties to make a turban. The “Indian Dupatta” can also be your ally in getting the look. However, do ensure that the scarf/stole/dupatta is one that is vibrant in color such as pink, green or blue. See that it does not have any prints on it and is a solid color – at the most it can be two toned or monochromatic.
The next step would be to tie the turban.
- So, you have to simply wrap it around your head, in a manner similar to how you wrap up your hair in a towel.
- However, here you will bring the two ends of the scarf together on top of the head, then criss-cross them and bring below and tie near the neck.
- Repeat step 2 until there is no more portion of the scarf left to wrap around.
Add a chunky necklace or two, and don’t forget to wear a smart pair of sunglasses to complete the look.
