The head wrap or headgear plays an important part in Africas 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 ½ to 1 yard of 100% cotton fabric.
