Style | Top Knot Head Wrap

Wednesday, 3 September 2014


I've always been in love with how head wraps look on other people but I've found it hard to be comfortable with how they look on me. Seeing Kiyana Wraps at Africa Fashion Week London last month however really made me want to try wearing a head wrap at least once.

Shamefully I'm pretty clueless on the various ways to tie a head wrap so I took to Youtube to find styles to try. This Headscarf tutorial by Fiona from Love Your Tresses gave me plenty of ideas and I ended up trying style 2 - the 'top knot turban'. This video is great for anyone that's a head wrap novice like me. My silk scarf (which is from H&M) is a little on the small side so I didn't get a big 'knot' at the top like I was hoping but I thought the result was still cute.

Admittedly I only wore my head wrap to the local shops to test the waters but I was really comfortable in a wrap and wearing one meant I didn't have to worry about styling my hair for once. I would definitely wear a head wrap again, though I may have to invest in a bigger scarf first!


Do you wear a head wrap/scarf?

  7. So different, and a good look on you. I really want to see you in a big turban, I think you would pull it off excellently

  9. One thing I love to do and my male friends joke I look like a 'woman going to the shops in her dressing gown with my rollers in' but I'm not exactly that great at it, so that's probably why it looks fudged. Thanks for the link definitely going to check that out xo

    1. Hahahah! That's probably what I looked like and it's definitely something I felt strange in at first as I'm not used to wearing a headscarf out of the house. Thanks LaaLaa x

  10. I love this! The headscarf looks amazing on you. I've always wanted to try it but I don't think I have the face shape for it... Maybe one day I'll have a go!
