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!
Do like you like to wear your hair in a ponytail? No worries, werk your headwrap around your pony like this beauty.
Use your favorite fall scarf to recreate this turban.
It's OK if a few coils sneak out of your wrap. It's basically a messy bun, done headwrap style!

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.
Or just let your baby hairs peek out!
