The Past and Present of Headwraps
Headwraps were worn on (slaves) and helped their owner identify them.
The cultural significance of headwraps signified women whom were married, or signified respect or acceptance to families of certain cultures.
Spiritual significance of the headwrap signified a sign of respect, humility, and modesty.
Headwraps today are growing in significance of fashion and style. Add some earrings and accessories and you came to SLAY!
They are also worn when someone is simply having “a bad hair day.”
For the naturals, headwraps help in both fashion and as a protective style option.
From the words of Mrs. Hattie (Jay Z’s grandmother)…
“I was given lemons and I made lemonade!”
