Naturalista or not, head wraps are life and so this one comes with all the dope we got on them! Printed or Pop-coloured, all wraps serve to keep our hair protected and save us from bad hair days. They undoubtedly are the best go-to accessories (that we can recommend, and we’re certain you will agree) in between styles, to beat the heat when the sun is out or as a simple quick fix to transform any basic look into one that is ramp-ready.
While a simple fashion statement for some, for many of our other sisters, head wraps are a symbol of communal identity and pride. All we can say is that for whatever reason you choose to wear your scarf, it’s got to spell style, mama! So to help, take 3 trendy ways to wrap it like a boss; with love from us.

Pull out your favourite scarf and get ready to lift any look with this style of wrap. Perfect for when you are on the grind, keeping all your hair under there, protected and in place. Follow 3 simple steps to a classy and clean topknot look.
Start by gathering all your hair at the top. Place the head wrap at the back of your head, making sure the fabric is lowered to the nape of your neck. Then pull the ends towards the front.
Twist both ends of the scarf around your hair into one large twisted section.
For short hair, simply tie one firm knot at the front to secure it in place and begin twisting both ends of the scarf.
Coil the twisted section of fabric around the center into a large topknot. Tuck in the ends.

This head wrap style is a great way to let your natural hair breathe; keeping it tied up but slightly exposed yet protecting your scalp from the harsh heat. We think it works great to add that extra edge to your everyday hairstyle. Nail this look in three quick steps:
Push all your hair up into a high bun. Fold the head wrap in half and place it at the back of your head before pulling the ends towards the front.
Tie the wrap into a double-knot, at the center. Tuck the ends of the fabric underneath, towards the nape of your neck.
Holding the knotted portion, slide the fabric back, just enough to give it the feel of a headband.

Give yourself a retro makeover with a hint of your gorgeous natural texture playing peek-a-boo with this head wrap style. Have fun with coloured headscarves, polka dots and all and get ready to rock this vintage wowie!
Put all your hair into a bun, leaving some of it out at the front. Place the headscarf at the nape of your neck, bringing it around to cover your hair bun. Then tie a knot at the front.
Bring the ends of the knot around your head, and tie them at the back again.
Bring the ends of the back knot to the front and tuck them into the folds on the sides. Tuck the front hair (which was left out) to one side, to create a faux-bang. You could even braid the front hair into a side braid to add more drama.
So there you have it, 3 unique and beautiful ways to tie your hair up with headscarves and make a bold style statement. Been on the look out for hair styling tips? Look into How To Style Kinky Curls.
