Tell us a bit about yourself! What do you like to do?
When I am not busy with my Husband and son I really enjoy spending time with my friends and helping others.
How long have you been covering?
I started covering with hats last spring but quickly switched to scarves exclusively.
Do you remember the first time you wore a head covering? What did it look like? How did it feel? What did others say?
When I first started wrapping I was surprised by the reaction of others. My husband said I looked glamorous like a movie star. Strangers in public suddenly treated me with an extra dose of respect that I didn’t get before. My parents are a bit baffled but have stopped asking and looking at me like I have seven heads.
When I cover my head I am reminded of something deeply personal to me. So that is a constant good feeling. I also find that I have a lot less mean self talk. I was really surprised to realize how much I used to say I hated my hair or hated that it would not do what I wanted. Now that my hair is a non issue I don’t put myself down so much.
I also put more care into how I look over all now. You just cant take the time to pick out a pretty scarf (or 2 or 3) and not take the time to match a pretty top and put on some lipstick!
What are you wearing on your head today?
A navy blue pashmina and an oat colored stretchy headband.
What is your favourite scarf and/or accessory?
My favorite is a yellow and green flowered tichel with the hot pink border – it is in the picture of me with my son.
What is your favourite colour?
What are you grateful for?
My family first, and the women friends, both here in my everyday life and in my virtual life. I have friends that I have never met in person but who I have loved and cared for for over a decade!
What is favorite scarf secret?
My bath scrubby volumizer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkbRTaABO08 [left of drawer, below] and the velvet headband!

I have that same yellow, pink and green floral scarf and I love it – but never thought of combining it with other scarves. It looks really nice, food for thought!
It is a gorgeous scarf – where is it from?
http://www.doubleheaderusa.com/product.asp?itemid=tichel17 I have the pink/yellow. $7.99 and free ground shipping 🙂
I got it from Double Header as well. It’s absolutely gorgeous but very small, I find it difficult to tuck all my hair inside and not to have any showing (although I guess if you use it with other scarves it may be easier)
yes – I always use another scarf under it
That’s why I find it so difficult to buy things online… any advice on figuring out texture, opaqueness, size etc.?
I actually bought it from the Double Header store in Brooklyn, I also find it hard to buy online and know what to expect.
