How common were turbans in the Ottoman Empire

There are several shows in Turkey that depict the Ottoman Empire that people claim are historically accurate like "Magnificent Century". But in Magnificent century, it seems like the Turks rarely wore turbans. The majority of the time, The Sultan, his advisors and guards would go without turbans. I mean in the paintings, the Turks always wore turbans it seems....

I'm asking this even though I know a lot about the Ottoman Empire, I just do not know how frequently they wore turbans. Can someone enlighten me?

I really wonder who are that people who claim the "Magnificent Century" is historically accurate. That TV series are designed to entertain people for god's sake. What's more it's a very cheap imitation of the Tudors. As for the costumes, they are probably the most inaccurate part of that series historically.

Many sultans were painted with turbans, so I would guess they were worn.
