holy turbans, batman!

Look at me, look at me.

Clockwise from left, 1, 2, 3, 4

I recently fell in love with the turban headband trend (and wanted to buy a handmade one)
So now- I am having trouble styling it for everyday life.
I never turn down a headband.  So check out how I styled it and let me know what you think.

The turban itself is cranberry red. I love love love the color, the possibilities are endless.
It is so well made and comfortable.
 Let's get down to it.

1) Turbo-Turban: the most normal way to wear it.  Over hair that is completely down. May look better with hair in waves.
2) Fake Bangin': aka I pinned my hair back to appear as if I had bangs.  I'm anti-bangs for myself, but everyone wearing turbans HAVE bangs.  SO I gave it a go, P.S. totally fooled my family.
3) Party Pony: My hair is parted like normal, with a normal ponytail and some volume.
4) Vintage Vibe: Front of hair pinned back.  Turban worn like regular headband.

So what do y'all think is the BEST look for me?
Which one would YOU wear?

I bought this turban from one of my favorite blogger's online stores.  
Kim from Yellow Songbird sold them bid-like on twitter.
She's the cutest.

^ This is how Kim wore it ^

Whoa, that grid of pictures is like Bekah overload.
you're welcome.

I got dressed today... AND I looked super cute.



  1. I love the turban headband look on you. All the looks I great! I especially love the bangs look and the party pony.

  2. You look SO CUTE with bangs! I can't believe they're DIY bangs! Totally had me fooled too! I love look #3 with your hair in a pony! I think it would look really cute with the turban know pulled slightly to the side. I've been eying this look for a while, and now you totally have me wanting to try it!

  3. I like the way you look with your bangs out, are those new btw?

  6. I love the turban headband look on you. All the looks I great! I especially love the bangs look and the party pony.

  7. Oooo I love them all! I think that was so clever how you faked bangs! I'm going to try that. I think that the vintage style looks amazeballs. They all do!

  8. Thanks Meg! I'm not brave enough to real bangs, so this was fun to play with! You made my day!

  9. FAKE BANGS! I pinned my hair back under the turban... i know, i know- i'm a genius! :)

  10. I like Turbo-Turban!!! Fake Bangin is also so cute as long as the bangs stay fake my lovely little chick pea!! Love, love from Mama Chickie!!

  11. Holy Turbans, Batman, indeed! I never thought the turban could be so versatile! And I am thinking about getting myself one as I type....

  12. 1) I won't lie, the turban is pretty cute. 2) I love Yellow Songbird! 3) You and your blog are so cute. Love all your outfits!

  13. I like the party pony. I almost always have a pony (I'm lazy). But you could def rock some bangs.

  14. I totally chose party pony. Because I didn't wash my hair. I totally recommend turbans for slept-too-late days!

  15. It's the one I chose for today! Pictures to come tomorrow!

  16. i like the two on the left! it's a pretty color and it's perfect with your red lips! i like the idea of turbans, too, but i don't know that i could pull them off! did you try it right at your hairline??

  17. I tried it there. Didn't like it! I wore it with a pony tail today, check back tomorrow I think it worked :)

  18. OMG ! I'm a big mumbo jumbo Elvis fan. We have to be blogger comrades!!
