How to tie Headtie And Wrapper

The headwrap or headgear plays an important part in Africa’s fashion styling, specifically in West Africa. There is a saying that "an attire is not complete until it is topped with a headgear".

There are different styles of head wrapping. Even an intricate-looking style starts with a basic procedure. We recommend that you consult an expert for help with the more elaborate and intricate styles. Most experts can look at a picture and re-create the style.

The weight, texture, and size of the fabric will affect the end result. For the basic style, use ˝ to 1 yard of 100% cotton fabric.
