The 25 Most Beautiful Head Wrap and Head Scarf Styles

At some point I was a little jaded about head wraps and head scarves and whether they were appropriate for me. Hey! Read up on it if you missed it. It actually wasn’t very long ago.

Natural Sister, Reclaim Your Head Wrap

But these days, I’ve pulled in over a dozen colorful head scarves into my natural hair took lit. And I no longer save my beautiful head wraps and head scarves for bad hair days. I’m actually in a season of Good Hair Days because I have fallen so deep in love with the texture and dimensions of my curls. Even on days when I have not invested the time and patience in my hair that I know it needs, I’m excited about what I’m able to do with this head of coils and naps and tangles. But rocking a head wrap or head scarf is not about concealing my hair anymore. It’s not even about protecting my hair. These days, my head wraps and head scarves add an extra bit of flair to my every day attire.

See, I’m rocking a TWA. If you are wearing one too, or have in the past, you know that there are only so many styles you can get your Teeny Weeny Afro into. So, sometimes, to amp up my look, I reach for one of my beautiful scarves. And I’m not alone. I’ve been checking out many other Naturalistas that rock a stylish headwrap to get an extra bit of girlish charm or even to add some elegance to their overall attire.

Natural Hair Accessories that add Flair to Any Hairstyle

 

When I first did the Big Chop, there were many days when I had a hard time “dressing up” my hair.

Natural Hair is never boringYes. I love wearing my natural hair. But I have a TWA (a teenie weenie afro). And I wear it seven days a week. EVERY day I look in the mirror, I still have a TWA. And some days I would like to look in the mirror and see a little more sassy, or sexy, or just different. I love my little afro, but I have to be able to get some diversity in my hairstyles, so I’ve invested in just a few natural hair accessories to help me jazz up my look.

If you’re a new natural or a seasoned Naturalista looking for a way to jazz up your look, here are some ideas for natural hair accessories I wear on the regular that work for me.

HEADBANDS. I’m crazy about them.
