How to tie a headwrap in 7 fabulous ways


Say goodbye to bad hair days. No need to worry anymore about a twist out fail or having no idea what hairstyle to wear out. Headwraps are quick, simple solutions to bad hair days. A headwrap is a great accessory to go with any outfit. They are worn for religious purposes, modesty or just for fashion.


Headwraps have really grown in style versatility and there are so many colors, patterns, and prints available. They can be worn on various occasions, weddings, school or dinner. There are many different ways to tie a headwrap. With a little practice, you can tie one in a few minutes without a mirror.


I have compiled a list of headwrap styles and tutorials that show variety in styles, creativity, and ease.


Here is what you would need;


To start off, you would need a long rectangular headwrap/scarf. Some of the best materials to use are chiffon, viscose, and African prints. Silk can be used but may not hold well especially if you intend wearing it over your locs or braids. These headwraps are readily available at local fashion stores.
