How To Tie A Headwrap Like A Pro

Are you looking for a way to spice up your hairstyle? Maybe you're in Cancun and are wanting to wear a quick cover-up over your hair? Perhaps you are getting married and want something beautiful to complement your outfit. Whatever the reason, if you want to learn how to tie an African print headwrap there's no better place to learn than from this blog. On this site, I am going to go over all of the details that will make it easy for anyone, with any kind of hair, to create their own custom look.

Luxury headwraps, or turbans as they appear to be referred to in other circles, are one of the most sought-after pieces of African fashion. The smooth fabric and intricate designs are a sign of opulence that was once reserved for royalty. Now they grace the heads of women at fashion shows and celebrities on red carpets all over the world.

A twist on one of Africa's oldest fashion traditions, our turbans are created with the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. They're just as luxurious as they are beautiful.

Today we will show you a simple, yet intricate style for your headwrap. We like to refer to it as the Bowtie Headwrap.

Materials Needed:

  • Your hands

  • African print headwrap size 72" by 22"

  • Your head

  • For No hair: Wear a stocking cap or wig cap to ensure the headwrap stays in place

  • For Short Hair: Wear a stocking cap or wig cap to ensure the headwrap stays in place

  • For Long Hair or Braids: Pull all the hair into a high bun and secure with a scrunchie

Here are the instructions:

1. Take the fabric and fold it in half, making sure that the pattern is facing out.

2. Lay the headwrap on your head, with the front of the fabric facing back and the two ends hanging over your shoulders.

3. Take one of the ends, and fold it up and over so that it sits above your forehead, but under your hairline. The other end should be hanging down over your back as a scarf would.

4. Tie a knot on both sides of the headwrap so that they meet in the middle and create a "bow tie" shape on top of your forehead.
