In Guatemala, the traditional indigenous dress includes an intricate hair wrap. Hair worn in this style is called a TOCOYAL. Tocoyales vary by region and the hair accessories can range from small, headband-like ribbons to large fabric headdresses.

This particular beauty was purchased directly from the village of San Antonio Palopó, Guatemala. This Tocoyal is a long, thin woven cinta, or ribbon. Very elaborate and colorful. The ladies in this village weave these gorgeous hair wraps by hand using a traditional pedal loom and then they adds embellishment like sparkly garland tassels or hand-beaded details.

Whether you want to style your hair in the traditional indigenous Maya way or you want to use it as a belt wrapped around a dress, or use it to tie a curtain in your home; there are endless options to use this stunning peace of art.

Beautiful and practical

The pictures on the website do not do this product justice. In person the hair wrap has so many beautiful details. The colors are vibrant and it is long enough for those with long, medium or short hair. Simple instructions are provided but I am excited to learn the different ways to use it in my hair. I have already been inspired to wear this as a necklace and belt. I can't wait to get more!
