Twisted Turban Headband

Before I got my hair done in this nice little fringe which is keeping my hair behaving I had a lot of hairy mishaps with styling.

Bad pun? Ok!

So I was on…nevermind you know where I was

Look what I found! A turban-like headband, it looks kinda vintage 1920′s I think. (Sorry about the pictures…I done this randomly). As a bonus this takes very little effort!

Once I cut it I had to split it in two so I trimmed off the overlocking on the sides.
