WAVY: Durag Fest (Photo credit: Terry Suave)

LAST WEEKEND, a new festival hit the scene and it was wavy - literally.

Charlotte, North Carolina hosted their first annual 'Durag Fest', and from the photos and videos shared on social media, it looked like a good ol' time.

The event took place at black owned art gallery BLKMRKT and was created by Joseph Headen (@headgraphix), complete with art, a fashion show and a liquor sponsor.

The festival also featured a wave contest...

And people showing off their most creative durag looks...

Speaking on the event, Joseph Headen tweeted: "I cried 2x last night for the manifestation of our event. So beautiful, so regal, No celebs, no fights, no VIP, unreal. #Duragfest"
