From popular celebrity stylist’s June Ambrose’s signature head wraps, to the 2013 menswear collection by Jean Paul Gaultier, the turban look has been seen practically everywhere. Although the turban first appeared on the scene in the 40’s and later again in the 70′s with Barbara Streisand and Bianca Jagger, it was not until 2007 Prada ready-to-wear collection that the look surfaced yet again and went viral. Not only have other designers such as Jason Wu, Giorgio Armani, and Issa, incorporated the chic hair accessory into their collections, but our favorite celebrity fashionistas like Solange and Eva Marcille have taken a liking to the trend as well. While on the runway, the turban is very faux bourgeois and classy, usually, off the runway, the look is very urban chic and unique. The turban has transformed into the new hat, but with elegance and a touch of sophistication. Such a versatile accessory can make quite a bold statement.
Here Eva the Diva shows off her head gear, two different turbans, two very different looks:
Looking very edgy in her dark denim skinnies, black tee, leather jacket, and leopard knotted turban. Her blood-shot red stiletto nails, dark lips, black sunglasses, and chain earrings all add to her whole rocker-chic ambiance.
From rocker chic to bohemian goddess. The long neutral-colored maxi dress, matching neutral turban, tribal printed shirt, and wedges, Eva looks like a present day 70′s flower child.

Whether you opt for a full turban or a knotted turban, or even a ‘turband’, a turban headband, it’s definitely a hair accessory that anybody could incorporate into their wardrobe.
