Many of us that dance have been told that turbans are not  worn by women and it has been suggested that the Fusion dance headdress is a turban not a  head wrap. 
This web site has some pictures of Traditional  head wraps. I am not sure of how far they go back.  The term "traditional" is use by schoolars to imply that the custom only goes back around 200 years. Folkloric is used to imply that no one know the time when it began. 
This is the problem with a lot of  middle eastern studies.
