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!

Pure Light

This past weekend, the Jewish people celebrated Yom Kippur.  There is so much to say about this holiday (it’s my favourite – wrote about that here) but in terms of hair covering, many people choose to wear all white.  I found that wearing all white with a white tichel is a challenge – it’s easy to enter bathrobe and towel zone!  Here is what I came up with!

The wrap consisted of two scarves and one lace sash (thank you hubby!)  They were layered and twisted over my head (for the second day of the holiday I did two twists – I liked that more!) and tied in the back:

I found beautiful light and sparkly earrings to match, as well as a big gold flower to hold the wrap together.  (This was the only colour in the whole ensemble.)

The white clothes were a beautiful cotton dress, with a white shell and ruffled white skirt underneath.

And of course, white shoes!

For those of you that celebrated, I hope that you had a cleansing, cathartic, and connected day.  Much love to ALL of my readers.  You are such an inspiration!

Medieval Princess

A high bun and long, flowing scarves are the keys to achieving a medieval princess wrap.  This is the perfect wrap for those too-large scarves that sometimes feel a bit cumbersome to work with!

Notice how adding a black shirt changes the look completely!  (It was chilly with the AC inside.)

Ballerina bun!

Inspired by my dancer friend, I decided to try a high bun wrap for today:

To do this one, just make sure that you have your hair (or volumizer or whatever) high up on your head, then tie one square scarf in a basic tucked in wrap.  Then I took an israeli scarf, folded it up and wrapped it around the bun part, tucking the ends in 🙂
