Headwraps are home, whether you agree or not is up to you. As a person with love for the history of Africa, I’ve come to see headwraps as more of a symbol and a statement than just a thing in fashion, this comes with the use of Ankara and other African fabric to create this wraps. One thing I’ve noticed about people in some parts of Africa is that we take our culture’s for granted – thankfully in Nigeria, the headwrap in form of Gele is something that we hold in high regard and there are many people on the streets who love the headwrap too and it has nothing to do with a bad hair day.
The Ankara headwraps are also big in the diaspora, blacks who are culturally conscious see this tradition, not as something that was enforced by the slave masters (knowing that Africans were big on the headwraps before slavery) but rather as some means to identify with the African heritage. With that been said, I urge that you connect to your roots with these Ankara headwraps.
Let’s take a look at the ways some fashion lovers have styled their headwraps…
