I love head-wraps! They offer the perfect pop of print and colour to basic outfits. Not to mention I feel more African when I rock them lol, guess you could say I'm paying homage to my roots. Anyways, today I'm sharing some of my pins from Pinterest to inspire you. 

I do not claim ownership of any of these images.

Of course I couldn't leave you without tutorials on how to achieve some of these looks. So check out Fanmdjanm for some Amazing tutorials. I made a head-wrap tutorial here and you can see how I rocked head-wraps in the past herehere and here.

I'm thinking of creating a video tutorial, let's see how that goes.Till next time!


  1. Am blown away by these head-wraps, especially the 5th one. If only I could pull off one without being a total joke. I did do a turban look once though..can't seem to do it again. For that reason, am headed to her page right after this...I need all the tutoring I can get.
    Great work with your Ankara head-wrap on the linked posts.

  2. @Linet, the fifth one is one of my favourites as well. You can definitely pull it off, your picture is proof of that. I hope her tutorials help out, I also have a turban tutorial on the blog so check it out.

  3. Question:
    I wear a head wrap every day (I'm not African). And I have my reasons for why I do it. But I was curious as to the reason why African women wear head wraps. I've asked folks before and never received a satisfactory answer. If it's a tradition, what is the reason behind the tradition.

    Thanks for any information you can pass along to shed light on this for me
