Head coverings are used and practiced in many traditions worldwide. Our wraps are crafted to celebrate the African diaspora and Latinx cultures, and we invite non-Black and non-Latinx folks who wear our wraps to respectfully celebrate and honor our cultures.
Which style would be best for a beginner like me? Help!
We have three different size wraps: Princesa, Reina, and Diosa Headwraps.
- Princesa: Recommended for beginners. Super easy to tie, and looks great with hair up or down. - Reina: Recommended for those who would like a versatile wrap. You can cover your head completely or pair this wrap with a high ponytail or messy bun. - Diosa: Recommended for those who would like a full size wrap. Wrap this baby up to create the top knot or turban style.

Can you customize my mask order?
Sorry, we are unable to customize any orders at this time.
Can I use ear savers with these masks?
Azteca Negra masks are designed for secure comfort around the ears. We use quality elastic for each of the masks, however we cannot guarantee that the elastic will hold up well with constant over-stretching of the elastic that occurs with the use of ear savers.
Can I return or exchange a mask I have already received?
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are unable to refund or exchange any masks that have already been received.
