Bonang Matheba and Zizo Beda


Ankara is a traditional print that has hit the fashion world by storm and it wouldn’t make sense for the beauty world not to jump onto the wagon. Queen B and Zizo show us how to match your head wrap with traditional wedding attire without overdoing it.

Bonang Matheba


Black and white is vintage and an all time classic. Your girl B shows us how colour can complement your head wrap and keep it simple.

Boitumelo “Boity” Thulo


Known for her many attributes including her fitness and for her work as an ambassador for the Nelson Mandela hospital, Boity adds a hint of elegance to her turban by accessorizing it with a broche. Keep yours plain to avoid a clash of prints if your clothing has too much detail.

Eva Marcille


Eva shocked us when she won the third installment of America’s Next Top Model and her career has been in the spotlight ever since. We love how a plain head wrap can have so much detail just from the way you tie it.

Khanyi Mbau



Queen of Bling Khanyi, is the perfect lady in red. Dress up to the occasion and match your turban to the rest of your outfit. A classic and never fading trend is the red lip and the strong colour is a hit when wearing a  turban. Wear your turban with different shades of red or prints to add character to your look.

Pearl Thusi


One of our favourite IT girls is Ms Pearl, who rocks the cool pair look. A young, fun and fabulous trend is to match your turban with your sunglasses, be it print or solid colours. Pearl unleashes her inner animal by matching her sunglasses with her turban… WE LOVE IT!

Simphiwe Dana


We know Simphiwe for her poetry, music and her turbans. No matter what the occasion, this Xhosa singer has never disappointed when it comes to her head wraps. By combining culture with material, you will be sure to rock any turban just like this songstress.
