I don’t know how to tie head gear so l opted for turbans. They are simple and trendy. I have a handful of them in my wardrobe. They have become my signature style. I also love the fact that I can accessorize them with beads. I think it is a must have for every woman.

Turbans are affordable. You can get some cheap ones as low as N200. They are in vogue now. If I don’t make my hair, it would still stay perfectly on my head. As a Muslim lady, there are places I have to go that l can’t wear hijab, my turban is a good replacement for that.

Turbans are gradually replacing the traditional gele, people adorn it even at parties instead of gele. It is quite fashionable and it can fit anybody well.

I love turbans because they are colourful. You get it in any colour you want. It is also simple to tie. You don’t need an expert before you can tie it.

I just love the look. It is always beautiful when you tie it. Even the amateur can tie.  And you can get them in different colours. I fell in love with it when a friend gave me as a gift.

I love turban because it is easy to wear. It is classy and makes you look elegant when you wear it. I used to think it is for Muslim women before until l started seeing it in church too. I can say l own five different colours now.
