Puratan paintings of Singhnis almost never show the sikh women wearing turbans. Most paintings I have looked at often show Singhnis with braided hair or sometimes with a top-knot. That said... Out of like a hundred paintings I looked at, I saw one where it seemed like a Singhni is wearing a dastaar boonga. It could be a prepubescent male since there is no visible breast shape in the painting however the clothing, pink salwar kameez, seem to suggest that it is a woman with her family. This was painted in 1838 Ad.
How did purataan Singhs tie their gol dastaar so that they did not get lose or fall off? I was doing an army course one day and my one fell off and all the dudes just kept looking at my hair as if it was the best thing since sliced bread.
