These hair wraps will certainly help you turn heads with bold colors and patterns. Black-owned hair accessories brand The Wrap Life makes the most beautiful hair wraps and headbands. The hair accessories add a gorgeous touch to any outfit, while also tying your hair back in a practical, functional way.
The Brooklyn-made head wraps and headbands feature high-quality fabric, with both firm and stretchy options. With a variety of colors and patterns, there is a style for anyone who wants to tie back their hair in style.
The brand draws inspiration from the West African expression of head dress, and model all of their products on beautiful Black women. But the brand wants to make hair wraps accessible to everyone.
“We’ve received many questions and comments about who is ‘allowed’ to wear head wraps,” the brand writes on its website. “As a Black-owned business that deliberately celebrates Black women through the images on our site, many people understandably assume that the products we make are primarily for Black women and no one else. We believe wearing head wraps is for everyone, because it has always been for everyone.”
The brand acknowledges that Turkish men, Sikh men and West African women all wear head wraps as part of their culture — and that’s only a part of the history of hair wraps. The brand adds, “We wear head wraps because they’re beautiful, fun and they allow colorful self-expression. We are inclusive and encourage all women and men to use and explore our products.”
