Of late, I have been drawn to the headwraps. I just love them. I think they make a great statement, wrap up a look and go with everything.
Which is always a catch for fashion. Something that’s comfortable and can go with everything 👌🏿.
I also like the fact that they make a messy bad hair day look well thought out.
And I won’t speak for all the women out there, but hair is such a hurdle to consider when going out. How long will it take me to fix it and how exactly should I style it…a number of thoughts. But with the headwrap, I’m good to go in a few minutes. I mean who has the time to look under your headwrap and tell what’s going on.
This is not always the case though, sometimes they highlight the hairdo.
I haven’t been in this headwrapping business long but here are my ideas on how to dress the headwrap.
- Wear them with hoops or large earrings. You can get away with the studs but I think the loops tie it all together. Big thick things and the longer the better. Really I am also just a fan of earrings, those that dangle all the way to the base of your neck😂, big and colourful.
- Switch up the tie styles. I learnt a few styles (and they are very easy to do) and it’s easy to find one that you are very comfortable with but you should switch them up to give a fresh look. And you’ll find some flow better for a particular look you are going for.
- Frame your face perfectly with the wrap. Don’t cover your ears if it’s not your idea. Don’t make it too tight and give yourself a headache all for the sake of fashion.
- Own the look. The first time I stepped out in a headwrap, I was so unsure. I hadn’t done it before and kept thinking it would fall off in public or that I just flat out looked strange. But it grew on me and has grown on those around me. So walk out with confidence and even though it feels weird on your head, give it time. You grow into it.
Altogether, I think the headwrap is a wonderful idea.
