Turbands are turban-inspired headbands that are making an appearance on heads of fashionistas worldwide ever since they were considered a glamorous and hip hair accessory to sport on rainy or humid days to cloak up frizzy and limp crowns alike.
In Malaysia, turbans have been a part of the religious headgear for Sikh men (and some women). Only in the recent years have we seen the turban inspired hair accessory being celebrated as it enters into the more liberal circles of fashion where it’s worn by ladies for various practical and fashion-related reasons.
Got a hairspray-resistant frizz that won’t go away? Is the humid tropical weather triggering daily episodes of bad limp hair? Well, turbands are here to the rescue.
Ladies with carefree bohemian inner spirits may choose to don these turbands for style statements but we all know that bad hair days happen to everyone regardless if they’re fashion inclined or not.
Turbands, I believe have become something worth having and that every warm blooded female will find them most useful and endearing if worn right (unless, you’ve developed a specific dislike for the style).
