Wrapunzel Challenge: Turban Extraveganza!

turbans-wrapunzel

Hello, Wrapunzel Ladies! Another two weeks have passed, which means that it’s time for another Wrapunzel Challenge! But before we get to our next theme, let’s take a look at some of the incredible creations the wrappers in our community came up with recently for our turban challenge: We saw turbans with one scarf and turbans with two. Big turbans and more compact, subtle ones. Turbans utilizing bold, bright colors and ones with earthy hues… Endless creativity all around!

While they certainly aren’t for everyone, it was wonderful seeing ladies experiment with something new and different, sometimes even find a new favorite way of wrapping entirely! Check out this awesome email we received from one of our participants:

I actually didn’t like the turban style for myself, or so I thought, until I actually did one this morning with a twist on top, and it took me like 3 minutes tops to achieve it, and it is now my favorite wrap to do! 😀 It feels like it stays on my head better too.

Amazing, right?!

We hope you all enjoy our gallery and be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post to learn the theme of our next challenge. We’re SO excited for this one!

Wondering what we’ve got up our sleeves for our next challenge theme? This one’s simple as can be and is a seasonal favorite for many, especially as we go into the Chagim… The theme is WHITE! For the next two weeks, we’ll be experimenting with white wraps and accessories, ladies! In the colorful world of Wrapunzel, we find that this color can frequently get overlooked, but there are still TONS of possibilites for how to incorporate white into your wraps. Whether it’s wearing one white tichel or adding it as a complimentary hue, we just know that you’re going to love this one!

Wrapunzel Challenge: Simple Style!

Bannerfinal3

We’ve just wrapped up another Wrapunzel Challenge and this one really took us back to basics- #simplywrapunzel was all about wrapping just one scarf around your head, without the use of added accessories. Sounds boring, right? WRONG!  If there’s anything that this challenge taught us it’s that one scarf can be wrapped in a seemingly infinite amount of ways and that the possibilities truly are endless!

With so many elaborate styles of wrapping out there, it can be easy to focus on more intricate and involved ones- Styles with multiple scarves, sashes, pins, clips and everything in between. Sometimes, taking a step back can be so cathartic for the seasoned wrapper. After all, even a basic Regal Wrap can have you looking like a queen!

Thank you all SO much for your participation in #simplywrapunzel! Want to learn how to participate in our next challenge? Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post for instructions and the big reveal!

 


 

So, if you’ve made it this far, you must be curious about our next challenge, right? For our next theme, we’re revisiting a color, but it’s not as straightforward as some of our previous color challenges have been. Our next challenge will have us feeling blue… Not only blue, but shades of blue. How many different shades can you manage to include in the same look? We’d love to see! Dark blue? Check. Pastel blue? Check. Sky blue? Check! Whether you choose to wrap with one shade or many, we’re SO excited to see all of your creative wraps with this incredibly versatile color. Have fun, ladies!!!

A Trip Down Memory Lane!

Well, ladies, we just finished up another epic Challenge of the Week and it was awesome! For many of us, the way we covered at the beginning of our journey is totally different than how we do so today, and revisiting old scarves can be a great way to document this process. Our challenge this week was to wrap with our first Wrapunzel tichel or first scarf ever worn as a head covering and it was SO much fun! Some ladies even submitted photos of the first tichel they ever wore! So cool, right?  Thanks so much for your participation!!!

*Bonus: Can you find the Wrapunzelista dressed as a fairy, sitting in a meadow? She is a clue to the theme for this week’s challenge! Don’t forget to check out the reveal video at the bottom of this post!

For this week’s challenge, we’ve decided to step away from our day-to-day tichels and experiment with something truly fun!  A big thank you goes to Facebook fangroup member Meira, who ever so graciously suggested the wonderful idea! Check out the reveal video below:

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!!!
