Durag culture is real. A$AP Ferg recently blessed folks with a step-by-step tutorial on how to properly tie a durag. Since rocking a durag is all about swag, folk can't be out here with an improperl tied or fit; plus, the waves won't flow correctly.
While the masses were thanking A$AP Ferg for his service, Charlotte, North Carolina, was busy taking durag culture to an entirely different level. The city hosted an entire durag festival on June 15.
That's right--a durag fest.
The #Duragfest Wave Baffle was epic! 🔥🔥🔥 pic.twitter.com/Iz4wBAVQpz— Boyz N The Society™ (@HeadGraphix) June 16, 2018
Durag Fest was created by Joseph Headen and was held at BLKMRKT, a black-owned art gallery. Activities included a fashion show, art displays and a wave contest.
Nobody was excluded from the fun. Whether you were a man, woman or baby, everybody showed off their durag swag.
