With a series of twists, turns and tucks, Yasmine Abellard transforms a rectangular piece of African fabric into a pompadour-like wrap atop her head.
She pairs the black and white patterned wrap with a simple black dress.
“It makes me feel bold, fearless, fierce,” she said.
Abellard started wearing African-inspired headwraps more than 10 years ago. She said when she would travel to Haiti where she has family, some of the women disapproved of her wraps.
