Hi! My name is Andrea Grinberg and I am the Owner and Founder of Wrapunzel. Welcome!
Here is how this site came to be and what we’re all about:
Originally, on my other website andreagrinberg.com, there was a “hair wrapping how-to” section. This section was started because some (very persistent!) friends were encouraging me to share how I wrap my scarves. Within a year, it became much too large to remain a section on another site, and the need to create a blog devoted to *just* hair wrapping became a reality. Here it is!
On the “home” page, you will mostly find daily posts showing what I’m wearing on my head. If you want to find tutorials etc., take a look through the top bar. There are also “Lady Wrap Star” posts in which a member of this site showcase their beautiful hair wrapping ideas, and these are also available on the top bar. Looking for something but can’t find it? Ask! We will either help you find what you’re looking for or create it if it’s not already here.
The name “Wrapunzel” was the final result of a night spent brainstorming with my family around the fireplace in winter 2012. It was the first time in a long time that all of us were together in the same place, and when I shared my idea of creating a site devoted to a community of women who all cover their hair, they were eager to help find the perfect name.
The site administrative duties are up to me, but really, the community that thrives in this little pocket of the internet is only here because of you. Here, there are women that cover their hair for many reasons – different religions, health, personal modesty, and creative fashion are only some of the ways that women have started wrapping and found this site. If you are new, we would love to meet you! It brings me so much joy to see new relationships being formed on here!
To the women that have shared their stories and inspired us to try new ways of covering – you rock! And if you are interested in showing some of your wraps or sharing a bit about yourself (or both), let me know!
Who am I? I am an incredibly blessed single mom of two amazing boys. For many years, while married, I chose to cover my hair because I am Jewish, and in Orthodox Judaism, married women cover their hair. Currently, I cover my hair when amazing opportunities move me to do so. I play the cello professionally, and do a lot of performing as well as teaching. I enjoy adventurous cooking and feeding others, bicycling, philosophy, and curling up along with good book and our kitty. I am Canadian by birth, and a citizen of both the US and Israel, currently residing in Baltimore, Maryland. I love meeting new people, hearing other’s stories, making connections and building bridges; It is mind-boggling how much covering my hair has helped me do this!
That’s enough about me… let’s hear about you!
