As a Wrap...

Step 1 - Put the pestemal behind your body, stretched lengthwise from one hand to the other. Pull it tightly to your back, one side a little longer than the other.
Step 2 - Bring the shorter end snugly across your chest and under your arm. Bring the long end over that, snugly and straight across your chest almost to your side. Now, holding the tautness, fan-fold the excess in the center front.
Step 3 - Roll-fold the top 2" away from your body across the front and around under your arms. Your pestemal should stay put now as you relax, do your hair, or fix the coffee!

As a Turban...

Step 1 - Lean over, placing the pestemal's lengthwise edge center point at the nape of your neck.
Step 2 -
Pull the pestemal edges tightly around to the center point of your hairline at your forehead.

Step 3 - Twist the edges tightly together to create about a 3" twist.

Step 4 - Bundle the rest of the pestemal tails into a loose twist as you stand.

Step 5 -
This "twist" can be wrapped around the top of your head and tucked in near your face to secure the turban.
