Every season calls for headwraps, but I believe the fall season in particular is the best for headwraps. When I wear a headwrap, it makes me feel different. I feel protected and adorned at the same time. It is truly a regal feeling that I believe every woman should experience.
However, I can acknowledge that wearing a headwrap and tying a headwrap are two different things. I remember when I first attempted to tie a headwrap and felt defeated immediately. I threw the fabric down and decided that headwraps weren’t for me. Thankfully, I didn’t believe that lie for very long; and I want you to let it go too if that’s what you’ve been telling yourself. Headwrapping is an art, not a science, and just like all art you can bring your own unique personality to it. In this post I’d like to share with you a few of my favorite headwrap styles (that I am sure you can recreate) and my black-owned companies that make headwraps!

My Favorite Headwrap Styles With Locs
These are a few of my favorite styles that I have worn with locs. Most of the headwrap styles that I like are tied in an updo, but please don’t let these photos limit you. A headwrap can be worn in countless styles with locs— even if you have short hair.
Where To Get A Headwrap
Nowadays there are an abundance of places to purchase headwraps, however I would encourage you to either source your own fabric or shop black-owned. Below are a few black-owned headwrap shops to purchase headwraps (not sponsored) each with their own unique style.
- The Wrap Life – This was one of the first headwrao shops I found in my loc journey and I have a few wraps from them.
- You Go Natural – I have at least 3 of their t-shirt turbans. They’re are satin-lined and easy to tie.
- Fitforamonarch – I love the variety of prints here.
- Kings Crowning – This shop is dedicated to the men, because men wear headwraps too!
- Crownned – I love that this shop has a headwrap for every stage of the loc journey, including the starter loc stage!
If you have any other black-owned headwrap brands, definitely be sure to shout them out in the comments! And if you prefer to purchase your own fabric for headwraps I think jersey fabric is the easiest for headwraps.
Either way, I hope this post inspires you to adorn your locs with a headwrap this season.
