At Empire Textiles we’re all about statement style that helps you stand out from the crowd. West African clothing is vibrant, distinct, and very versatile, which is why we love playing around with a whole host of gorgeous fabrics and ways in which to wear them!

One of the most versatile collections we stock is our selection of head-ties, perfect for when you’re growing out your hair, after having braids removed, or simply when don’t have the time to style it!

Wearing a head-tie shouldn’t have to be a second-rate solution, and there are so many beautiful ways to wear your favourite West African fabric. We’ve been admiring one of our favourite vloggers Gracey Mae who has made a video showcasing seven ways to wear an African head-tie – one for each day of the week!



If Gracey Mae has you feeling inspired to try your hand at wrapping your hair, then why not take a look at our head-ties? They come in a stunning range of fabrics and bring a real sense of glamour to your look! Here are our three current favourites.



HTE045 Empress head-tie in orange

Rich and energetic, this bright splash of colour will cheer up your outfit in seconds! The touch of gold brings elegance and creates an exceptionally classy look. Perfect for light and dark skin tones.



HTE041 Empress head-tie in army and gold

This piece is opulent and sophisticated, but still keeps itself demure with a soft shade of army green. Beautiful against lighter skin tones, this delicate head-tie adds a little glitz without going over the top.



HTE031 Empress head-tie in chocolate

For those who like an understated headpiece, this tie is gorgeously demure. The dark shades are refined and classic, but the pop of white brings real contrast to the look. This is a modest addition to any wardrobe, and an absolute staple, capable of complementing any outfit. We think this head-tie would look fantastic on darker skin tones.



All of our head-ties are designed and chosen to match the other products on our website, so if you find yourself head-over-heels for a print then don’t fear – there’s a whole outfit with your name on it!
