ARE AFRICAN PRINT HEADWRAPS REALLY NEW IN AFRICAN FASHION SCENE?
Some people think that the african print headwraps are styles that came into in existence when the ankara fashion started to trend.
Sorry to burst your bubble but headwraps have long been in existence since time immemorial. Headwraps were actually an important factor in the olden days and still is in some African culture.
It was prerequisite for a woman;a married woman at that,to dress properly when going out. Dressing up properly meant covering up entirely including the hair.
You would see women in their beautiful african print blouse and long skirt or long dress with their hair covered with same the african print . So, the question here is
Are headwraps for women only?
The african print headwraps are mostly attributed to women but some men in some african tribes also put on headwraps. For instance, in my country, Ghana, some subchiefs and paramount chiefs put on headwraps. Not forgetting Indian and arab men.
How to style head wraps.
If you are not sooo of fond braiding your hair and putting on weave on like I dont,then your hair saviour will be the head wraps. Head wraps can be styled in the form of turbans and a whole lot.
Me and bad hair days are twins. I just dont have time for my hair. Only the Lord knows why. So my only way of staying in the hair game is head wrap.
The good thing I love most about african ankara head wraps is that,it can be used as a complement to a non traditional dress to make a statement.
