How to wear a shemagh

Heres a quick guide on how to properly wear a shemagh over your head, found it at an ebay auction so here it is.
Also, a shemagh is prononunced [she-mah] the g is silent :mrgreen:
In farsi, the name for a shemagh or a peice of cloth wrapped around your head for non religic purposes is called a Khuffiyah [Khoo-Fi-Yah]



STEP 1
Fold the shemagh into a triangle. Wrap it around the back and over the top of your head, with the folded edge across your forehead, making sure that about two-thirds of the material is on your left. The right end ought to be long enough to come to your chest.



STEP 2

Use your left hand to pinch the shemagh about 3 or 4 inches from the folded edge and let the edge hang forward



STEP 3
Let go of the right end. Using your left hand, hold the edge of the shemagh next to your left cheek and hold it near your left cheekbone. After you do this, use your right hand to pull the left end of the shemagh across your face, over your nose.



STEP 4
Continue to wrap the shemagh around your face and head until you get it back over your left shoulder. Grip the right tail and hold it to keep from pulling the shemagh off your head as you wrap. Work your hands down toward the ends as you wrap.



STEP 5
Pull the shemagh as tight as needed to feel comfortable. At the end of the process, take both ends and, somewhere near your right temple, tie them in a knot. A square knot will secure the shemagh adequately.

Thanks to Korneil, heres another way if you are confused or if the detail on the first one isnt clear.

Would you be able to provide a guide, as accurate as the one you just provided, on how to properly tie a turban?

Very well done Conscript, Good to see something productive come out of you.

Here you have another technique to tie a shemagh. It comes to the same basic thing. Pick which ever you want.
