The relationship between Black women and their head wraps is a special one. From elaborate designs and scene-stealing bows to subtle twists and colors, our crowns say a lot about our personalities, culture and legacy.

That’s why for the past four years, the Head Wraps in the Park Festival, the brainchild of Fatima Dodson, a local business owner in Los Angeles, has created a safe space for women to celebrate wearing head wraps. This past weekend nearly four thousand men and women made their way to Grand Park in Downtown, Los Angeles for a day filled with food, fun, fellowship, head wrap tutorials and of course, the celebration of African culture and beauty.

So grab your Cee Cee’s Closet head wrap, or whichever wrap makes you feel like a queen, and check out these photos from Head Wraps in the Park that will fill you with joy, pride, and pure Black Girl Magic. See you there next year!
