The African head-wrap thus works as a regal coronet, drawing the onlooker’s gaze up, rather than down. In effect, African women wear the head-wrap as a queen might wear a crown. In this way, the head-wrap corresponds to African and women’s manner of hair styling, wherein the hair is pulled so as to expose the forehead and is often drawn to a heightened mass on top of the head.
Any woman who wants to feel queenly and special can style their #headwrap in the Afro-Centric style. There are countless ways to style your crown. Take a look at some of my favorite tutorials: fanmdjanm.com, from nadira037 on Youtube, and at thewraplife.co
