This may look like a lot of material, but when done right it looks stylish. You might need help with putting it together, but practice makes perfect. Play around with the wrap until you like the fit.
Thembisa’s headwrap looks clean and simple. It shouldn’t be too difficult to try this if you’re a first timer.
Bonang’s Maasai wrap is intricate enough to rock it without overbearing the look with accessories.
Nandi’s headwrap is OTT, which is great for occasions like weddings.
Boity went the simplistic route with her wrap. Put the material around your head and twist the ends around, and neatly tuck in where they meet.
Nomzamo also does it the simple way, which can be worn at any formal or social event.
Relebogile’s piled on the material for a dramatic and larger-than-life look.
