Fancy Tutorial Alert!

Hello, Wrapunzel World! This is Rachel writing. Sometimes you need a REALLY great headwrap. One with a huge WOW factor, that’s full of elegance and grace. A true head-turner, so to speak! We’ve got two new tutorials from skillfully-wrapped Wrapunzelistas that fit the bill perfectly and are thrilled to be able to share them with you today:

Stepanie (Belle of the Ball) - WrapunzelFirst, we have Stephanie in her Wrapunzel tutorial debut (Remember her from our most recent Lady Wrap Star post?)! She recently discovered  an incredible solution to tying a rather tricky scarf and the end result is truly breathtaking.

Starting with her “Wendy” Beret Volumizer as a base, she then combined a silver Belle of the Ball and dark blue 2 in 1 to create this sophisticated side-knot, which is perfect  for even the most formal of affairs!

Stephanie tells us that almost any very thin scarf will work with this wrap style, which got me thinking of other possible combinations. Trying it with a Shiny-licious is at the top of my list!

 

Jasmin (Shimmery - Shiny-licious) - Wrapunzel2At the other end of the spectrum, we have the triumphant return of Jasmin and her stunningly glamorous shimmery wrap! This seemingly effortless (it’s not as complex as it looks, I swear!) and creative style is perfect for the woman who loves intricate-looking wraps without tails (myself included).

Like Stephanie, she also started with her “Wendy” volumizer (you need a LOT of volume to wear under this wrap), before moving on to her mix of The Shimmery (in both light olive and navy) and a  Shiny-licious (in mulberry). The end result is big, bold and beautiful- a real statement wrap!

 

Enjoy, ladies!

Naomi Rose: Shimmery Pigtails Tutorial!

13523867_10206175599380257_2103937530_oHere at Wrapunzel, we have never been shy with sharing our love for The Shimmery. This was one of the first tichels that Andrea wrapped with – even before Wrapunzel was a store – and its high demand has truly made it one of the most popular tichels on wrapunzel.com! We often applaud this tichel for its beautiful fringe and glorious sheen, which can elevate even the most simple of wraps to formal-status, seemingly instantly!

Are you looking for a fabulous new way to wrap your favorite Shimmery?  Enter Naomi Rose’s latest tutorial! The possibilities are endless with this wrap. She combined her brown Shimmery with a teal Shiny-licious, but you could easily experiment with other tichels, as well. A Dewdrop Sparkle, your favorite pashmina or 2 in 1 would all work swimmingly!

Sara’s Tutorial: The It’s Knot Hard Wrap!

Hi, ladies! It’s Friday and that means that many of us are getting ready to don our fancy wraps for Shabbat and other weekend events. Are you looking to try out a new tichel style? One that’s intricate-looking, yet not nearly as difficult to execute as it seems? Do you have an abundance of 2 in 1s or other thin scarves lying around? Fangroup member Sara has the solution!

In celebration of our #wrapunzeledinsunshine Challenge of the Week, she used burgundy, exotic spice and saffron 2 in 1s to come up with this cheerful, sunshine-inspired triple knot, and it is one of the most creative wraps we’ve ever seen! Not only that, but it has 3 variations: tails down, hanging braid, and tucked braid; each version being more fabulous than the next!

Gorgeous, right?!!

 

After receiving a boatload of requests, Sara made this fantastic tutorial, which we are SO excited to share with you! Without further ado….. here’s Sara!

 

An Extra Fancy Double-knot Turban!

Hi, my name is Rachel and I am a turban-a-holic. No, really, I’m 100% addicted to them and frequently find myself standing in front  of the mirror, experimenting with new scarves and different ways to tie them on. The possibilities are seemingly endless! Despite that fact, lately I had begun to feel a little bored with my usual go-to styles and had been looking for something new. Then, this past Shabbat, I finally found what I was looking for and discovered my favorite turban to date! I had tied similar turbans before, but never thought to layer them in this way. Why oh WHY did it take me so long to try it out?!

With my trusty teal Shiny-licious  and black/white/teal Ombre Sparkle 2 in 1, I got to work, layering them on, tying some knots and tucking the tails. The result was a formal looking wrap that almost looks like a french braid!

I’ve tried it another few times since and each attempt has led to the same smashing results. Any thin scarf will do- even 2 in 1’s! High volume, low volume and everything in between- this wrap has seriously got it going on! If you’re a turban addict like myself, this one is definitely worth giving a go.

And… the tutorial! Hope you have fun with this one, ladies!

 

Hearing Equipment? No Problem!

One question that we get asked from time to time is how women with hearing aids and cochlear implants manage to wear head scarves. Does it affect the device’s functionality? How about volume level? Will the sound be muffled? Enter Wrapunzel fangroup member Mia, who ever so graciously made us this informative video on the ins and outs of wrapping with hearing equipment! She uses Wrapunzel head scarves and wrapping accessories to show you how it’s done and shares some incredibly useful tips and tricks, as well. Thank you, Mia!!!

 

Do you wrap your head with hearing equipment? What works for you? We’d LOVE to hear about it in the comments below!

“Wrapunzel Under Wraps” part 2 – Very Short Hair

Many of you have seen our first “Under Wraps” video and infographic from last summer:

Shaper Comparison

Both became popular very quickly, as many women had been requesting clarification of the differences between shapers and what exactly goes on underneath wraps, for some time! However, for women with little-to-no hair,  these were not accurate representations of how our Essential Tools might work for them. Most Shapers give quite a different look when a bun or pony tail isn’t present underneath and until now, we didn’t have a proper visual guide to illustrate this.

Without further ado, may we present both our newest infographic and “Under Wraps” tutorial, showcasing all four Wrapunzel shapers, when worn over very short hair!
