Many of you have been asking for fancy styles that are possible without the shaper, so I’ve been experimenting for you! Here’s the lowdown: if you like a lot of volume by your face, prefer a less layered look, and don’t care if the bun part of your head is either not there or small, then you don’t need a shaper. However, if (like me) you don’t benefit from having lots of volume by your face and like to do lots of layering (just not right on top of your head), then a shaper is a must! I have, however, really enjoyed experimenting with having more volume/layers around my face… but I’m realizing that it’s just not the best look for me! Luckily I do have enough hair to allow me to do some layering at the back, but not enough for my taste. I was asked today, by someone that sells mitpachot, what kind of shaper I’m wearing, so maybe I’m just biased – what do you think?
Here I am wearing two ombre 2 in 1s and one regular navy 2 in 1:
It was definitely harder to keep the layers neat without the shaper! On first try, the tichel itself looked good but *I* didn’t because there was so much layering around my face! On second try I was able to move the layers back a bit, but the result wasn’t as easy and neat as when I have the shaper to wrap around.
And here I am wearing just a gold shimmery! This is actually something I really liked, and I definitely got approval from my mother in law! It looked so fancy yet was so easy – thoughts?
