Lupita Nyong’o has been slaying the headwrap game while on her press run for her new film, Queen of Katwe, reminding us again why we love the protective style so much. We’ve rounded up some headwrap inspo from bloggers and models on Instagram that are #HeadwrapGoals. And we’re not talking about wrapping your hair before bed to keep your edges intact, we’re talking about SLAYING it for the gawds! 

  1. Pony Perfection

    Do like you like to wear your hair in a ponytail? No worries, werk your headwrap around your pony like this beauty.

  2. Turbanista

    Use your favorite fall scarf to recreate this turban.

  3. You Messy

    Been about you & I'm still about you💛

    It's OK if a few coils sneak out of your wrap. It's basically a messy bun, done headwrap style!

  4. Go Big or Go Home

    Step it up with a bold print for an extra punch!

  5. The Undone Look

    If you’re not a fan of turbans, try this undone headwrap. Once the scarf is secured on your head, it just hangs loose to the side.

  6. Beginner's Luck

    This twisted headwrap style is good for those who are trying the trend for the first time.

    Here’s a second day hair pick me up — let your locks roam free under your head wrap.

  8. Baby Hair, Don't Care

    Another day of moving 😩 & since there's no time for makeup I just decided to play with my hair 😝 #vivaglamkay

  9. Tassels and Things

    The tassels on this scarf add character, no?

  10. Keep It Classy

    Go for a striking geometric print and keep the knot low for a very demure look.

  11. Always Be Extra

    Save this big bow style for those days you just feel like being extra.
