'Divine' Wax Headwraps By Bineta Sanor

Bineta Sanor unveiled her Spring/ Summer 14 Turbans Collection, entitled 'Divine'.

We recently talked about designer Bineta Sanor's clothing line but this time we focus on her stunning headwraps. Sanor's designs here are truly outstanding: the colors are bright, the prints pop and the shapes are innovative. These vibrant headpieces come pre-shaped, so no need to worry about how to wrap your hair with these fabrics, you just throw a piece on your head like a hat and you're good to go!  It's a fantastic idea and you can pair these pieces with everything. Scroll through our gallery to view the photographs and if you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #binetasanor.
