Four-Strand Braid Rainbow!

This is one of my favourite outfits that I wore in Israel… the dress allows for so many tichel colour combinations!  This 4-strand braid always makes me so happy!!

… walking down the back streets in the neighbourhood of Geula:

And standing on the hill where my husband and I got married!  You can see the wall of the old city behind… such a holy place!

In these photos I’m wearing four 2 in 1s – I was out all day in the boiling heat and stayed quite cool!  I would, however, if I wanted it to be cooler, choose a style without so much hanging tail on the side… but it was super fun in the breeze!

Shabbat shalom, world!  (And Shavua Tov to those of you already in Shabbat that will see this afterward!)
Love, Andrea

Last Day in Israel

Hello Beauties!

I’m sorry for my absence on the blog.  For those of you that have been reading the news and following me online, you’ll know that the last couple of weeks in Israel have been difficult, and even though I’ve continued to rock beautiful head wraps every day, for some reason posting them just didn’t feel right.  I do have lots of photos, though, and Gd willing they will be posted when I get back!

So here is a lovely double braid, for your viewing pleasure.  Do you ladies think I’ll ever get tired of discovering new combinations to do this with?  With a solid collection of 2 in 1s, you can match pretty much any article of clothing perfectly!

This dress is another gorgeous Jerusalem find!  I love its modesty and subdued colours!

Hope you are all doing so well, and thank you for all the emails, calls, and messages.  I feel like you’re all right here with me and the support means so so much.  All my love,
Andrea

The DB Goes Higher!!

Hi Everyone!  I’ve been trying to figure out a way to do the double braid so it doesn’t just sit like a low bun (not flattering on everyone’s face shape), and have figured it out!  You just need to wear your shaper/bun much higher, and when braiding, make the braid loose so it’s longer.  I suppose you could skip this step if you can find super long scarves, but I prefer using traditional length scarves so wanted to find a way using these!

Check it out!  I actually rewrapped it after taking these photos and now it’s even higher than this!!  Woohoo!

It is SUPER hot and humid today in Jerusalem (39 C /102 F)… so I’m wearing a floaty skirt and of course my tichel is off of my neck!  Thank Gd, with staying in the shade and drinking lots of ice water I so far haven’t melted!

D.B. Detailed Tutorial!!

I’m in Jerusalem!  And of course the first tutorial I make in the beautiful neighbourhood of Nachlaot is… a detailed version of the same video I made the last time we were staying in Nachlaot two years ago!  Here is how to do the Double Braid (the DB!) with 2 in 1s, with the ends tucked in!

D.B. Mania!

The Double Braid (now named the “D.B.” by Wrapunzelettes) is becoming my every day go-to!  It has quickly replaced the standard tichel bun, and don’t worry, when you do it over and over it can be done so quickly!  The 2 in 1s make it so easy and perfectly light for the summer!  Here are two that I’ve worn lately – one in Florida and the other one in Baltimore today.

The D.B in Florida! So light and cool with the 2 in 1s!

The D.B. in Baltimore!  Looks gorgeous with a flower clip and colourful dress!

Would you like a tutorial?  I should probably make an updated one but here is where it all started… two years ago in the holy land of Jerusalem!  The only difference between this video and what I do in the photos above is tucking in the ends instead of leaving them hanging!  Looking forward to having you join the D.B. club!!

 

Photos of “The Crazy Beautiful” Wrap!

Here are some stunning photos that Rivka Malka’s daughter, Hadassa, took of “The Crazy Beautiful”!!  So happy to finally share them with you!!  How have your experiments with it been going?

It reminds me of all those intricate updos that ladies would do for weddings – except you don’t need hair extensions and hours or labor!  And no, it isn’t that heavy if you wrap towards your head instead of pulling down!  It’s actually quite comfortable and made me stand up straighter!
