Headwraps are good for a bad hair day. They can represent your heritage in style, or even change a drab look to fab. Headwraps come in several lengths, colors, and patterns, and are now one of the most popular fashion statements in Black culture.
In Africa, headwraps were and can be used as carrying supports to transport water or various items commonly carried on top of a woman’s head. Today, headwraps are used as easy fashion statements that only require a simple wrap around and twist.
Headwraps are worn with any ensemble of some of the most elegant gowns, to the plainest workout gear. Kori James, a local model, wears headwraps on the go and in her down time, saying they are “one of the easiest hair and fashion statements around”.
“I have worn a headwrap to school, work, a party, it doesn’t matter. It’s something you can dress up or down, if you have a head and the right pattern” said James.
Some of the most stylish headwraps can be found in local beauty stores, on the Wraplife.com or even within your own closet with last winter’s scarves. For information on headwraps email Delinkey@yahoo.com or direct message @Delannii on Instagram to request a how-to-wear, headwrap tutorial.
