Afro inspired head wraps? Oh my!!!

With the growth of the natural hair movement, along with the increase in people being inspired by the prints and pattern of the African continent, one cannot be surprised that afro-inspired clothing and accessories are becoming more mainstream outside of Emancipation.

When it comes to accessories, one of the most noted in the local fashion game is head wraps. They're quick, easy to put on, and add a little extra African melanin goddess-ness to an outfit. I love a good head wrap, so of course, I had to share with you, some of my favourite local head wrap, headband and headscarf makers. 

Afrocessories are the creators of the AfroBonnet! The what?? Let me explain. These wraps aren't quite wraps, they're actually bonnets!! Yes, hats, that you can slip on and off. No tying necessary..

  1. Girl I love wraps, those look so vibrant and nice but they don't stay on my flat head LOL. The slip and I look like a smurf :0)

    1. lol!!! a smurf? oh dear. Maybe you're wrap it tight enough, with the Afrocessories though, it is a hat, so no worries about tying.
