Head scarf styles for you to try this summer with our One Style 5 Steps!
Headscarves and head ties are inherent in African cultures. The many different styles and fabrics you can use to create your head wrap is for the fashion, as much as it is a semblance of dignity to the intended culture, worn with pride.
Head wraps are styled in different ways traditionally for different tribes, religions and occasions. This is similar for Arabic cultures, even down to Romani Gypsies, where women traditionally wear the “Diklo” headscarf after marriage.
In recent years we have seen the west take inspiration from the African fashion and head wraps with the colourful prints and patterns; from high-end editorial shoots in vogue to African American artists such as Alicia Keys rock a head wrap in her most recent album cover. With the growth of online black hair bloggers, as well as Muslim women sharing their head scarf styles, you’re not short of options!
With so many styles to try we’ve made a quick 5 steps to follow to help you create the simple Top Knot Turban with your scarves.
