Summer is almost upon us. This year has been harsh. Too much is going on but still we must prevail and keep on moving in some of the most tension-filled times many of us have ever encountered. I don’t talk politics much on here although I am a news junkie liberal. I LOVE my people and passionately proud of my blackness. I am also a BIG proponent of buying black and supporting black businesses. When it comes to fashion and style, natural hair is up front and personal and always first in letting all others know what is hot. What is hot right now for black women in natural hair is head wraps and I’ve here to share the hottest of the black owned head wraps you need this summer!
Head wraps are beautiful pieces of material that help tie up hair in various styles for fashion and protection. They are not new to style for black women and while often used for religious significance, they also have a dark history in this country as well. For ways to cover our tresses to appease others, they have become a beautiful way to style our hair.
As the love for natural hair grew, so did their popularity for style and we are seeing thousands of naturals choose them as hair accessories in recent years.
You can wear these hair accessories to completely cover your hair, or simply a way to keep your hair off your neck and shoulders. You also have the option to just add some variety to your hair and I cannot stress ENOUGH how much I love wearing them when my hair is just not cooperating. They are excellent when getting close to wash day and you just want to look great without much effort.
The colorful patterns of many of the head wraps are hard to compare. They are simply stunning! They go with everything and the styles are pretty endless. Most of the shops have plenty of styles and items in each style, but often they are open to special requests so don’t hesitate to inquire about specific colors and prints.
Don’t feel overwhelmed by the thought that you cannot achieve such beautiful styles. Many are pre-tied just like the wrap above and below. Several shops like ZAKAARA and ShesGottaHaveStyle offer pre-tied options that make styling your natural hair a breeze and make for a quick exit out the house. It’s all about ACCESS and I’m making sure you know about these amazing black owned brands!
Head wraps are making a bold statement this spring and summer and I’ve been seeing women rocking them whether they are going to work, protesting, running errands or just having fun with family in the park. The options are pretty endless for when you want to wear one, so make sure to get a few so you never run out of stylish options for outfits.
From newbies to veterans, naturals will be out with head wraps all summer long. It’s time to embrace the beautiful way to cover your hair or just keep it off your shoulders. Running out of style ideas? Rock a head wrap! Need a new look, rock that beautiful hair accessory. Just cannot do your hair…see where I’m going? Make this new fashion statement one of your own this spring and summer and have fun with it too!
