Natural Jael on Challenge 2

Head wraps of many styles have been a distinctive piece of African American culture.  Head wraps have traveled the time from the mother land, through slavery and landing as a style in the 20th century. For many women, head wraps are not just a means of covering up a bad hair day or a cultural gesture but can be worn as a styling option.

Headwraps are not just a quick fix for a bad hair day. Colorful scarfs intricately wrapped around.

 

Head wraps can be worn in a variety of ways and for this challenge I choose to create the head band look across the front. This look was achieved by placing the scarf length wise across my head. The ends are crisscrossed in the back as each end is twisted and wrapped to the head, creating a headband along the front hairline.  The twisted ends of the scarf are tucked and hidden. The look is topped off by tying the scarf in a bow around my neck.
