The weather is getting warmer so I’ve been experimenting with some simple ideas that will minimize layers and keep your head from overheating in the sun. I love wearing tichels in the summer because they keep the hair off of your face/neck and prevent your scalp from sunburning.
You’ll see a lot of Israeli tichels in these ties… I love using them in the summer because they’re light and slip resistant. All of these ties use scarves of a very light material… and I always wear my velvet band underneath to keep the scarves from slipping (feel free to ask me about this band, I’ll let you know where to get one!)
Easy and colourful! Just tie an Israeli scarf underneath another square scarf, and tie into the bun style shown in the “beautiful basics” video. Twist both tails around the bun.
I found this neat scarf that has a different pattern on the front and the back! If you can’t find one like this, do not fret… this tie works just as well without it. Use a large square scarf and tie a basic triangle tie (first tie in “beautiful basics”). Then take the tails and wrap them over the top of your head, tucking the ends in. If you have a scarf with different sides, wrap it so the opposite side is showing. Then add a pretty headband and you’re done!
For this one, make a high ponytail with your hair, take two contrasting Israeli tichels and tie them with the second tie from the “beautiful basics video” aka tucking the middle ends in to make a bun. Then take a ribbon and tie it around the bun, leaving all the ends hanging.
This is a “royal twist” using a very long, lightweight, two-tone scarf… I wore this for Shabbat! This is an easy way to look fancy without having too many layers on your head!
For this tie, take an Israeli tichel and tie it in a bun (third tie in the “beautiful basics” video). Slip on a headband. Now tie a square, lightweight scarf over it, letting the ends hang.
This is a “regal wrap with hanging tails” except using only one long, very lightweight scarf. Add a pretty hairpin or brooch to keep everything together!
Silk scarves are amazing for the summer. They’re so light and elegant without requiring any work from you! For this one I simply tied the square silk scarf in a triangle, tucking the middle end in. Then I added a beaded headband. Since silk scarves can slip quite easily, make sure you either clip it in with bobby pins, or use a “grip comfort band”, which I mentioned above.
