[Tutorial] Twisted Nerfertiti Headwrap

This is a quick and very easy headwrap to achieve, with or without, a lot of hair. The "Nerfertiti Headwrap" is created using only two pieces of fabric (1 yard minimum each) and shaped to create a high crown similar to Queen Nefertifi. I added my own spin on it by adding a hair accessory.
