Hello Friends, since most of us are at home "social distancing" I figured now would be a great time to talk about headwraps (and practice wrapping).
A Headwrap (or Head Wrap) is a piece of cloth tied around the head in an intricate style. It can be a strong cultural statement, a fashionable accessory or a smart fix for those days when you don’t want to style your hair. A headwrap can be worn for a casual day at home or the most special occasion. It might be just a simple piece of cloth, but it can show off a woman’s beauty and strength like nothing else.
Before we get into the tutorials, let's discuss a few points:
- Headwraps are for EVERYONE. PERIOD! Wear them with pride!
- You can purchase a wrap or scarf in any color, pattern, fabrics or sizes. Bandanas work as well.
- Remember to take care of your hair under the wrap. Wearing a wrap is not an excuse to neglect your hair. Detangle and braid your hair down or put in a ponytail, and make sure to properly moisturize your hair if you are wearing wraps that aren't silk.
- DONT WRAP TOO TIGHT! I know you make be fearful that your wrap will come off, but do not go overboard with tightening the wrap. It can cause headaches and wreak havoc on your precious edges.
- Headwraps may not be appropriate for every occasion. If it's not a place or function where you would wear a hat, it's probably not a place where you should wear a headwrap (unless you are wearing them for cultural observance). I personally have worn wraps to work at two different companies, but it's a discussion you should have with your supervisor/HR department.
Below are a few tutorials with cute, easy styles. Happy Wrapping 💜💛💕
