ALL WRAPPED UP: HEADWRAPS AND SCARVES ARE HEATING THINGS UP
Vogue has not always been the beacon of diversity until recently we have not seen as many variations of beauty and style. While we continue to make strides in diversity and beauty I commend Vogue for leading the way. I was inspired by Lupita Nyong'o’s Vogue cover. I purchased 2 and leave one on my coffee table for visual consumption. Her skin, her eyes and Mona Lisa smile. I was more excited to see her in a headwrap. It was surprising, it beautiful and I was absolutely in love! In the following years Vogue Arabia gave us more covers and I was bewitched by the beaities on the cover again in head wraps and this time styled by someone I’ve connected with. I am so proud of Vogue and so proud of the ladies at the Wraplife. I am even more excited to share the beauty, protective hair measures and fun to be had with wraps, scarves, turbans and hijabs.
The 1950′s, 60′s and 70′s have always had an influence on modern beauty trends. Let’s take a look back at beauty icons like Jackie Kennedy, Grace Jones and Elizabeth Taylor all made fashion and beauty statements while wrapped beautifully in turbans and scarves. Turbans and scarves can turn your ensemble into a piece of art. I love looking back through the archives to see how these iconic women fashioned these pieces for both style and function.
As we transition to from season to season sometimes our hair and skin hits a rough patch. The cold, rain and humidity cause bad hair days and the inconsistent weather patterns cause havoc on our skin. Don’t let the weather get you down, grab a scarf and wrap up! Get this glam look and give your skin a rest: Go makeup free! Cleanse, balance and hydrate your skin. It is important to apply an SPF throughout the face, neck and chest. Exfoliate lips then apply a natural lip stain. Slide out in a pair of oversized sunglasses to top off this super chic ensemble.

The Wraplife and Haute Hijab are my favorites and as I grow out my buzz cut this season I will be rocking lots of different lewks! I can’t wait!
