- Make use of a huge T-shirt and trim the body of it just below the sleeves to fit your needs. Assemble the tee-shirt (which now seems to be a tube) on your head such that the bottom seam is on your forehead. Twist the section of the scarf that is now draped over your head and down your back to form a circle, and then draw it back up to the top of your head. Tuck in any loose ends and you’ve got yourself a turban.
How do you make a homemade turban?
Make use of a huge T-shirt and cut the body of it just below the sleeves to make this costume. Wearing the t-shirt (which has now taken on the shape of a tube) on your head with the bottom seam on your forehead is recommended. Twist the section of the scarf that is now draped over your head and down your back to form a circle, and then draw it back up to the crown of your head. Any ends can be tucked together to form a turban.
- Make a bun or a ponytail out of your hair before you begin to work. Fold a huge square scarf in half so that it forms a triangular shape.
- Once you’ve twisted the ends twice into a knot, pull both sides together to the back of your head and tighten the knot there. Finally, you’ve completed your turban!

What material is best for head wraps?
Cotton, lightweight wools, and mixes are the ideal textiles to use; nylon and silk are less secure and tend to fall off the head more frequently. To keep your scarf in place, we recommend wearing a cotton hat underneath it and keeping a small supply of pins on hand.
How much fabric do I need for headwrap?
Two yards is the ideal length to utilize if you want to get more eye-catching looks. You can make a nice headwrap out of one yard of fabric, but two yards of fabric will give you something a little more glam and conspicuous.
Can anyone wear a turban?
YES. Although the reasons for wearing a turban might vary, the style is available to each and everyone! Some individuals wear a turban or a head wrap (head cover) for religious reasons, while others do so for fashion reasons. A turban is also worn by cancer patients to mask hair loss caused by alopecia or hair loss caused by cancer therapy, among other things.
