Learning How to Headwrap

Head Wraps, Head Bands, head scarves and head ties, all different names and ways with which to accessories, protect your mane, or even hide it during a bad hair day, whether you want to wrap your mane for fashion, religious or cultural reasons, knowing more ways than one to do is very helpful.Unless you grew up in an African Village or grew up with a mom or grandma showing you how to do it, chances are like the rest of us city girls, you have no clue which end of the scarf to shorten.Head wraps and turbans work so well on styled hair, natural and processed hair, long or short too

Natural Twist

I loooove braids, love them love them (/insert love eyes Emoji)

Protective hairstyles for the African Natural hair texture and trend is in huge demand, and at most times expensive and very time consuming (5-10hrs) to get the whole head done in those beautiful skinny twists,(insert sad Emoji) good thing is, it is all worth it.

fashion take over

African fashion, culture, prints and designers are seen all over the world and many are making waves in the industry, Clearly the world is fascinated by all this, So why has African Fashion not taken over Paris, Milan and New York catwalks?

CNBCAFRICA Anchor @Mozipho Mbanjwa did an interview with South African Design Giants @DavidTlale and @JJschoeman on this same question

This issue appears to be as complicated as the patent on African Prints
