Let’s take a look at 31 iconic headwraps from the unapologetic Erykah Badu. For years, the legendary American soul singer inspired us with her music. But that is not the only thing she’s known for. Apart from singing, she is a fashionista with an unapologetic style and gave a lot of coverage and recognition to the African head wrap.
Nobody rocks the headwrap like Erykah Badu. She’s the queen of turban head wraps and she reigns supreme in it. A unique thing about her headwraps is not the way she loves it and was always seen it but how unique she did it. She wrapped it so high that it makes it difficult for one not to notice it. She stole a lot of attention with her super high iconic headwraps.
Whether she was on stage, on the red carpet, or out and about on the street – Erykah Badu was religious and true to her style and was seen a lot with her high rise turban headwrap. But she was not all about her iconic headwraps. She was also a woman unafraid to try something new and different. As such, she has been seen rocking different kinds of hairstyles such as super large afros, blond mohawks, smooth balds, very long braids and several other hairstyles.
In recent years, the queen of headwraps who came into the music scene in 1994 has been seen rocking huge hats and looking as fierce as she has always been from her hot days.
At the moment, the Afro-American Grammy-winning artist is in Malaysia. She was scheduled to perform in the country but has been banned from doing so because a controversial photo of her with the word ALLAH tattooed on her shoulders emerged. The said picture has resulted to a firestorm in the Muslim-majority Malaysia. As such, she has now been advised to remain in the country as a tourist.
It is considered highly offensive in Muslim culture to don any image or representation of Allah on one’s body or in any other non-religious form. Malaysia is roughly sixty percent Muslim.
