Wrap Series; The African Woman

I have wanted to do a head wrap series since the blog was back up, so when Brian finally accepted to do a shoot for me I was super excited. I had shown my makeup artist Monday 101 ideas of the concepts that I wanted to do and she was more than ready to do the shoot when I asked her.

African women wear crowns on their heads because they are Queens. The African head wrap is becoming a staple fashion accessory in the Fashion world as it can completely change up and or complete an outfit. The wrap goes way back to my mum who is a wrap fanatic, I love how she uses various clothing to make them and thus my inspiration comes from her.
This particular number was done with 2 scarfs with my hair tied in a bun to give it more character. I was having a debate on what colors to use but I love how we blended shouting orange and faded grey it totally made sense.
My makeup was very neutral so as to not contrast the already bright wrap. I love how the final pictures came up and hope you will too.
AW, I will be posting a new wrap every Wednesday for the next three weeks, so keep checking out for them 
I am also thinking of doing tutorials for you guys so if interested let me know so I show you guys how to do some of them.
