How to easily tie your African headwrap – Headwrap tutorial

Quick video here!

I wear a headwrap fairly often. Mostly when it is warmer. And many times when I appear on camera. I am still learning but I decided to record a headwrap tutorial! This is my favourite way to tie my headwrap – and it is easy and stays put. I also give a great tip! I will continue to discover styles and I will share those with you.

There are two brands that make quality headwraps that I like to buy.  They are founded my black women so you know I have to support.  They are Fanm Djanm and The Wrap Life.  I have to pick up a few more this year.  Let me know your favourite placy to buy quality headwraps.  Put it in the comments below.

So check out the video and let me know what you think.

Headwrap used in the above video is by The Wrap Life. 

This one was limited edition, but there are plenty of gorgeous ones to chose from.

Tanzania Dutch wax head wrap by Fanm Djanm

I have been loving this African headwrap! I bought it recently from a lovely Haitian woman Paola and she is the owner of the company Fanm Djanm. My particular piece is 100% Dutch wax fabric from Tanzania. The edges are finished and it’s a large rectangular piece. Honestly, I don’t remember how I tied it. And I love that it is so bright and colourful and I can keep my makeup at a minimum. Here I had a little black liner on my lower lashline. Mascara top and bottom lashes, a little matte chocolate brown eye shadow in the crease. On the skin, only facial oil. All about that glowy, summer skin!

just some facial oil, minimal eye makeup! Glowy skin!

By the way, Paola will be at the Sugar Hill Market in Harlem this Sunday, August 17. This market is held once a month, in various locations around Harlem and it features a host of talented artisans showing their handmade creations. There’s food, clothing, crockery. So check out their website for more information, Sugar Hill Market.

Also check out Paola’s page as well, Fanm Djanm.

What do you think? I need to find different ways to tie it. Any suggestions?

Hair of the Day! Twist out, half up

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’] Here is the hairstyle of the day.

My latest twist out!!!

My usual twistout and I decided to wear it half up and half down.  Super easy! I just unravelled the twists but I did not separate the individual twists. I used these products to do my two strand twists – these are pretty much my holy grail products!

  • Kinky Curly Knot Today as a leave-in
  • Oyin Handmade Whipped Pudding
  • Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade

What do you use?? Laters!
