Tignon Pink

Tignon Pink is inspired by the Tignon, which was a head wrap used by both free and enslaved women in Louisiana in the 1700s.   

Black women during that time would dress their hair in elaborate styles that enticed men, including white men. In an attempt to stop this black women were forced to wear head wraps to cover their hair, the tignon.  This was known as the Tignon Laws.

As history has taught us, you can’t keep a good woman down, the women or Louisiana dressed their tignons elaborately and attracted even more attention and admiration.
