It’s always so exciting when you learn a new trick! Someone posted this awesome rosette trick on facebook recently and I just had to try it! This is my first time… so need to try it with other materials but am excited to make a tutorial sometime soon! It’s done from a simple square scarf, and can also be used as a sash! Neat!
So in case y’all haven’t heard yet, a Wrapunzel Store will be opening soon! Your demands have been heard – yay! For now, the blog and the store are being kept separate (most of you requested this) but since Rivka Malka‘s and my life right now is revolving around setting this baby up, many of my wraps are done using our new scarves!
Tichels are generally a hit and miss … and since we will only sell what we wear ourselves, (and for a price we would pay – this one is a toughie!) searching for perfect scarves has been quite an adventure! Recently one particular scarf arrived which made us gasp in shock and excitement because the colours were simply EPIC! I wore it yesterday and couldn’t wait to post it!
It’s a one scarf wonder! What do you think?
We also just sent one of these out to the lucky winner of our recent giveaway. I can’t wait to see what she does with it!
It’s like, all of my favourite colours at once! And this wrap was so easy to put together (did it without a mirror in much haste!) Enjoy!
I am so happy with this scarf! It’s light, colourful, and can be worn in so many ways! Depending on how you fold it before wrapping, it creates a myriad of layers. During my recent trip to my brother’s wedding (!) I didn’t pack enough scarves to wear during the week (I had tons of scarves from the new Wrapunzel Store, but not for myself… go figure). However, I did pack this one and made sure to wear it with different wrapping techniques. Here they are!
Way #1 – Regal Wrap with Hanging Tail and teal colour at the front:
Way #2 – All tucked in Regal Wrap and navy colour at the front with a turquoise sash added for fun! (and husband 😛 )
Way #3 – Simple Elegance with pink pattern at the front and flower pin!
And yes, this is one of the scarves we will be selling! Now tell us, what are some new scarf discoveries you have made lately?
Many of you have asked for a tutorial on how to do yesterday’s tie – I will make it happen! However, before doing so, I need to wear the style a few more times before I can claim to be expert enough to make a tutorial. Here is the same tie, but with a silkier scarf… looks pretty good and is holding up well!
I can’t even tell you how many compliments and smiles I got just by wearing this bright flower on a sunny day. Yay for making people happy! Others seemed to think that this was a very complicated wrap, but really, it’s only a regal wrap with the stretchy flower headband added in. Will definitely be doing this style more often!
I am really starting to look forward to opening my mail box. There are so many artistic ladies on this site! My friend, Stephanie, who is a Lady Wrap Star (see her post here) is also starting to make her own scarf wrapping accessories! They are gorgeous, and work very well because they are specifically made for those of us that cover with scarves. I am loving this pretty gift of a yellow flower clip/headband – I can’t seem to stop wearing it!
I hope that one day I can start being crafty like some of the ladies on here… but for now, I can just get excited about opening my mail box! Here is the flower headband/clip on a different wrap:
Stephanie is also making hair clip holders (basically, a pretty ribbon – or two – attached to a loop that can be hung on your wall) and sent me one. It holds my flower clips beautifully and is very practical for storage. You can see it on the left side of this photo. (On the right is how I store my pins.) Yay no more crushed flowers!
I am not sure, but I do think she is selling her creations and since everything is made by hand, will do special requests. I will let her clarify that! Thank you Stephanie!
(and FYI – she did not ask me to make this post… but how could I not? ❤ )
I am happy to share this new site, which will be about everything to do with hair wrapping! The “hair wrapping how-to” section was getting much too crowded over on andreagrinberg.com, plus I have many ideas on new places that I want to take this art.
You can look forward to:
– Almost daily “what I’m wearing on my head” posts! (hopefully this won’t ever get repetitive.)
– Inspirational photos and stories of other women and how they cover their hair!
– Frequent Q&A and personalized troubleshooting
– As well as the usual how-to videos, photo inspiration and hair covering thoughts that have always been there!
What would YOU like to see here? Let me know and I will do the best I can to feature it!
There are so many women that cover their hair with scarves for various reasons. This site is a place to share and learn about this beautiful art together.
