Headwraps in Africa are less of an accessory and more like crowns. Hence, whether you are at an owambe (major party) or on a casual outing, a properly tied headwrap would always be followed by admiration and compliments. Right now, satin headwraps are all the rave and it’s not hard to see why.
Women are constantly looking for more options – not that we want to abandon the ones we already have, but as they say, variety is the spice of life.
For ceremonies like weddings, child dedications and even birthday parties, wearing a headwrap or gele, is a great way to serve culturally-inspired style. But what if wrapping your head with traditional fabrics like Aso Oke, damask or brocade isn’t your thing? Because we all understand that the long hours spent at these ceremonies often leave our head and ears hurting. Instead of skipping a headwrap all together, as most women do, for this reason, you should consider a satin headwrap.
A satin headwrap is an option that is so versatile and sleek, or simply put, a chic contemporary alternative; one that Ini Dima-Okojie approves of. They are smooth and glamorous and reminisce of that wealthy aunt who just glides through life.
Lately, we’ve seen a good number of ladies rocking the satin crown look and we haven’t seen anyone look wrong with it. This is why we know that the trend is about to get bigger.
