One thing I love doing is trying out new styles. Its something I can’t do everyday, but it breaks up the pattern of wearing the same thing day in and day out. Here is a turban style I created for Eid. 
Screen Shot 2014-03-03 at 10.02.43 amTo start out you will need the following:
A hoojab (Click here to see which one suits your body type)
Two slides/bobbie pins
Pins (as many as needed)

Screen Shot 2014-03-03 at 09.38.08 amOnce your underscarf is firmly secured, place the hoojab on your head. Remember the underscarf is your foundation. If it is loose and can move around easily… so will your hoojab.  Screen Shot 2014-03-03 at 09.38.58 am
Use the slides to secure your hoojab to your underscarf. I placed these at my temples.

Here is where you can place some folds. I put in one, but this is optional. Also this would be a great time to add a Daisy Chain, ribbon, or accessoryScreen Shot 2014-03-03 at 09.41.17 am
This is a point where I am going to differentiate the two sides of the hoojab. In this photo the left is the draped side and the right is the turban side. Take the turban side and swing it around to the other side you will keep it bunched up. Screen Shot 2014-03-03 at 09.41.42 am
Here you can see how I am keeping the turban side bunched up while bringing it around to the top of my head.Screen Shot 2014-03-03 at 09.42.09 am
Bring the turban side up and over your head, creating a side part look. Bring the turban side down across your forehead to where it suits your face the best. Screen Shot 2014-03-03 at 09.42.35 am
You can see here I am keeping the style pretty tight yet comfortable. You don’t need headaches. Hold the turban side tight.

Now bring the draped side under the turban side. Pull the draped side along from the back edge, letting the front edge drape across your chest. Screen Shot 2014-03-03 at 09.43.08 am
Pull the draped side up and over your head. You may choose at this point to give some folds. Pin as necessary. Screen Shot 2014-03-03 at 09.43.27 am
Now take the turban side and pull that around the back of your head. Screen Shot 2014-03-03 at 09.44.09 am
Neaten the look as you see fit. Screen Shot 2014-03-03 at 09.44.23 am
Pull the turban side around the back and under the draped side. Screen Shot 2014-03-03 at 09.44.41 am
Now you can pull apart the turban side and swing it over and around to the back of your head and pin into place.

Pin the edge of the turban side to the scarf with a no snag hijab pin. This will ensure you have adequate back coverage.

Now take the draped side and neaten up the front. Here I pinned it to the scarf and my top to keep everything in place. Pin where you feel is necessary. Screen Shot 2014-03-03 at 09.46.34 am
And you are done! Here is what the back/neck coverage looks like. Let me know how this goes for you!
