Wrapunzel Challenge: Embracing Black!

collage2

Hellooo, ladies! It’s time for another fabulous Wrapunzel Challenge roundup post! Our most recent theme was the color black and we had a blast. Thank you ALL so much for your participation in #wrapunzeledinblack!

Looking for ways to incorporate the color black into your tichel-wardrobe? Check out the collage below! Want to participate in our next challenge? Don’t forget to scroll down to the bottom of this post to find out our next Wrapunzel Challenge theme!

 

Those are some gorgeous wraps, am I right?!

Moving on to our next challenge, this next theme is in honor of a very special type of tichel-wearing woman. She might be one who is just beginning her head covering journey and starting out with the Regal Wrap. She might be a turban-lover or perhaps just prefers the freedom of movement that comes with being all wrapped up… That’s right, ladies, our next theme is wraps without tails and we are SO excited for this one! Many of us prefer to wear wraps WITH tails, so this will surely be challenging for some. For those of you who fit into this category, we do hope that you will be willing to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. After all, so many of us enjoy our head covering journeys by embracing experimentation and having fun! Enjoy, 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:

An Extra Fancy Double-knot Turban!

Hi, my name is Rachel and I am a turban-a-holic. No, really, I’m 100% addicted to them and frequently find myself standing in front  of the mirror, experimenting with new scarves and different ways to tie them on. The possibilities are seemingly endless! Despite that fact, lately I had begun to feel a little bored with my usual go-to styles and had been looking for something new. Then, this past Shabbat, I finally found what I was looking for and discovered my favorite turban to date! I had tied similar turbans before, but never thought to layer them in this way. Why oh WHY did it take me so long to try it out?!

With my trusty teal Shiny-licious  and black/white/teal Ombre Sparkle 2 in 1, I got to work, layering them on, tying some knots and tucking the tails. The result was a formal looking wrap that almost looks like a french braid!

I’ve tried it another few times since and each attempt has led to the same smashing results. Any thin scarf will do- even 2 in 1’s! High volume, low volume and everything in between- this wrap has seriously got it going on! If you’re a turban addict like myself, this one is definitely worth giving a go.

And… the tutorial! Hope you have fun with this one, ladies!

 

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!!!

 

Do you wrap your head with hearing equipment? What works for you? We’d LOVE to hear about it in the comments below!

Tutorial: Olive Grove aka Layered Waterfall Twist!

As requested by many of you, but specifically for one special woman – you know who you are!

This is such a versatile tie using the “Waterfall Twist” technique!  Make sure you are comfortable with the original technique before trying this one!  Keep in mind as well that depending on how you tie the knot, you will either end up with the fringe father forward or farther back.  Both work!  Check out the photos to see the different ways this technique can work out – it can go super fancy!   For the original look, you will need a shimmery and 2 in 1 in the same colours.  Also experiment with where you tie the knot – it changes the whole look!  Higher up on the crown of your head give a more “crown-like” look  (ie the navy in the tutorial).

Here is the tutorial!

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!
