Layered Artsy Side Swoop!

#wrapunzeledinbrown

 

Here is a look that I’ve been having a lot of fun with lately! It’s formal, dramatic and fun, and is an excellent tie for pashminas with fancy borders (Especially the Shine On, seen here)! Adding a 2-in-1 and Shiny-licious to the mix gives a nice variety of texture and added interest. My favorite part of this style, though, is the unique “side swoop,” which can give the wearer the feeling of hair, without hanging tails!

*Please note that this style requires the use of pins and is not for the faint of heart! It is definitely more suited to more experienced wrappers and those who don’t mind the wearing the weight of multiple scarves.

 

 

You might recognize this version from our Most Popular Tichels video!

 

After many requests, I was finally able to film a tutorial, so without further ado, may I present to you the Layered Artsy Side Swoop!

 

“The Malka” Tshirt and Shimmery Together!

We’ve been inundated with requests for a tutorial on this gorgeous tichel style that Malka modeled for us!  It combines a Favorite T-Shirt tichel with a Shimmery… aka it looks fancy but can also feel more casual depending on what you pair it with and what colors you choose!

Here is the version I came up with for the tutorial!  Same thing, different colors!

So this morning I made a tutorial!  You’ll have to excuse the unstable screen (cue computer on music stand and adorable baby boy grabbing it).  Enjoy!

Hi everybody!

I feel like it’s been AGES since I’ve made an outfit post, so I’m overdue!
Lately I’ve been inspired by combinations of a metallic tone (gold, silver, bronze) and a jewel tone (green, turquoise, dark red, purple, etc.). It reminds me of a gem in a setting, and I’ve found that almost ANY combination of colors from these two categories looks fantastic!

Today I wore a bronze Shiny-licious, with a teal and turquoise 2in1 tied in a Liezl, one of my favorite fancy ties. When I wear three or more colors I often stay pretty match-y so I paired the tichel with similar flowy stretchy clothes (my skirt was brown, even though it looks super dark in the photo for some reason!).

 

Lately I do most of my Wrapunzel work from my home or my fave coffee shop, so one thing you will NOT often see is me this dressed up at 8am on a Monday! But this morning was my friend Talya’s bris for her new baby boy, and it’s a gorgeous chilly morning with nice fat snowflakes falling, so it was just the time for a special wrap.

Have you tried a jewel tone + metallic tone wrap? Give it a go, I bet you’ll love it as much as I do!

#wrapunzelcomforted (and next week’s challenge)

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth,
for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire:
it is the time for home.”
– Edith Sitwell

 What do you think of when you hear the word “comfort”? Is it the process of easing grief or restoring a sense of well-being? Consoling, perhaps? Or more of the physical, like wearing your most comfortable pair of slippers, relaxing in a reclining chair or wrapping your head in your most worn scarf?

No matter what your own personal definition might entail, I think we all can agree that comfort is a feeling and with this week’s Challenge of the Week, we’ve seen more interpretations of that feeling than ever before! Turbans, tails, braids and buns… the diversity of these tichels seem to match the diversity of the women themselves, each a reflection of our own individual definitions of comft!

Check out the collage below to see some of the ways that women have wrapped their heads in comfort and be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to learn our theme for next week’s challenge!

The title for our next Challenge of the Week is inspired by hip hop culture! For those of you who are fans, Jay Z and Jermaine Dupri coined the phrase, but in the years since, it has become well known, even outside of this music genre. Think you have it figured out? Watch the reveal video below to find out!

Would you like to be featured in next week’s collage? Head on over to the Wrapunzel Fangroup and share your pictures using the hashtag #wrapunzeledinbling. If you would also like them featured on next week’s blog post, make sure to also post them in the comments on the pinned post at the top of the Fangroup page, so we know to share them. We can accept up to 5 headshot-style photos per person – no collages, please! If you’re not on Facebook, you can also email your pictures to us at wrapunzelthestore@gmail.com with the subject line “Challenge of the Week.” Can’t wait to see what you create!!

Rachel’s Official Welcome!

Hi everyone!  Andrea here!  You likely have noticed a gorgeous new face here in Wrapunzel land over the last few months… on our youtube channel, in our photos, on the fangroup, and also contributing blog posts!  That’s right!  Our tremendous turban teacher, Rachel, is now officially part of the Wrapunzel team!

The Lovely Rachel!

It was natural, really.  From the first time I met her, there was a connection between us deeper than the pretty scarves we were wearing on our heads.  It was at our Cleveland show last year!

Meeting for the first time!

Over the year, Rachel has become more and more prominent in the Wrapunzel community, sharing gorgeous photos and essential tips, making fabulous tutorials, and always being sensitive to the needs of others.  When we started the weekly challenges, she shared a collage of her wearing #wrapunzeledinallthecolors tichels.  And when asked, she directed Wrapunzelistas by describing in detail every single product on her head, where to get it, and every tutorial needed so everyone could do the same.  It was her dedication, her instinctual giving, her integrity, her work ethic, and her attention to detail that moved me to tears, and it was then that I knew she had to join the team.

Check out those wrapping skills!

So what’s Rachel up to?  Officially, she is our “Social Media Specialist”, working on organizing our youtube channel and making it more user friendly.  She is doing the same for the blog, helping us figure out a way to make the vast content accessible.  She’s coordinating the challenge of the week posts, continuing to make tutorials, helping with emails, doing a fabulous job moderating the fangroup, restarting our pinterest and twitter, and most recently she has taken over writing our newsletters, and doing an INCREDIBLE job!  (If you aren’t signed up for these, you’re seriously missing out!)

Let’s call this our official welcome!  Welcome to the Wrapunzel Team, Rachel!

I want to write more, but I am so overwhelmed with gratitude that I know it’s just time to share with you what we’re up to here at Wrapunzel.

Here’s a video I made this morning telling you what’s going on:
