Apart from the conventional link of turbans to Indian people, the traditional association of head wraps to African women and the standardized idea of housewives being the head-honchos of head wraps. It has become increasingly popular on the fashion scene. Social media is testament to the trend, with Ramadan here my Instagram feed has been swamped with head wrap #selfie’s & #ootd’s. Not forgetting the recent twitter rant on #respectthedoek.
It’s an easy go-to hair accessory. Particularly since winter’s misty mornings are here, my hair easily as we like to call it ‘becomes mince’. There are a myriad ways to style the headwrap. Thanks to YouTube it’s only a click away.
Have you hopped onto this bandwagon?
