“As an entertaining night at the theatre, The Head Wrap Diaries certainly hit the spot”

Three fierce, clever and witty female characters share stories of community, heritage, womanhood and friendship. The Head Wrap Diaries celebrates versatility in Afro-hair, diversity amongst black women and empowers ALL women to embrace their individual beauty. Dealing with issues of femininity, beauty, culture and most importantly; hair.

Using Vicki Igbokwe’s signatory blend of club styles house, waacking and vogue fused with African and contemporary dance, The Head Wrap Diaries takes you on an immersive journey from childhood to the present day.
