As my father once said “Black people are truly original, there is no one like us”. That’s how I feel when I think of how Black women all over the globe wear their head wraps. From the Muslim women in Somalia to the women in the Caribbean, or the urban chic in Brooklyn, New York, we know how to turn a scarf into a fashion statement.
For this photo shoot, I thought about all of these women and tried to capture their spirit and their style into my photos. A head wrap can make you look mysterious, elegant, or sassy.
Usually, when I wear my head wrap, I wear it fully covering my head with a bun or a knot on the side. I like to combine the wrap with a sleek coat and a pair of nice jeans to give it a casual but sophisticated look.
