The rise of the head wrap


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?

    • Hey,

      I would suggest you start by choosing topics that interests you and focus on things that you may enjoy discovering. My writing abilities really started improving when I started writing and I still surprise myself. I know it sounds so cliche but practice you can only get better. Also, you need to really trust what you’re saying and know what you’re saying because your readers pick it up. Try not to over explain, keep things simple and to the point because you may loose the plot while trying to explain things but if need be say what you need to say.

      I hope this helps, all of the best!
