Here’s how to tie the incredible Wrapunzel Signature Scarf!!
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!
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!
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!
You may recognize Chaya from this video, which has spread around the hair covering world like wild fire! Before I came to Jerusalem, Rivka Malka contacted her and we all agreed that we had to meet and connect, as well as get Chaya Wrapunzeled! Little did I know, that the Shalev Center, where Chaya lives, is less than a two minute walk from where we’re staying!
We started off with some Wrapunzel makeovers, both with my wrapping Chaya, and her wrapping herself while asking questions! We figured that would be super helpful to everyone here… like having a coach in your own room! We ended off with an interview, and I must say, if you watch one video out of all of these, watch this one! But really, watch them all – she is so awesome and I’m super happy that you get to meet her!
We first started with a sari scarf and shimmery together:
And then Chaya wanted to try doing it herself! Awesome!
And now… the quick and easy Waterfall twist! 3 minute video, and it shows both my doing it on her and her doing it herself! Win!
Finally, here we are doing an interview. Seriously deep insights into hair covering and what it means to be a female! She is just so cool – I hope you’ll learn as much from this as I did!
How grateful am I, to not only be in Jerusalem, but to also be here at the same time as my sister in law, Naomi. Many of you will recognize her as a Lady Wrap Star on here, and she is so humbled that her post has touched so many women! There is much that I want to say about sisterhood and friendship; and though we both didn’t grow up with sisters (I have one brother, she didn’t have siblings), we are learning together. We are learning that there is infinite power and potential in woman to woman connection, and I know that loving and bringing out the best of each other is going to change the world!
And now… tichels 🙂 Yes, we traded sari scarves!
And here’s a closeup of my wrap! Peacock pin was a long time ago gift from Naomi, and sunny shiny yellow scarf is from my mother in law. Yay for beautiful gifts and feeling your head being hugged by the ones you love!
Let’s all take a moment to be grateful for the incredible women (and of course, men too – let’s not forget them!) that we have been given, and think of one nice thing that you can tell one of these people today. Now, go do it 🙂 With love.
Saw this wall. MUST TAKE PHOTO!!!!! Good thing I’m wearing my green sari scarf which paired perfectly with the funky colours!
Sending you smiles and beautiful, bold colours!!
I’m loving the look that came out of these scarves this morning! It manages to be both soft (the colours) and strong (the angles) at the same time! I’m using three scarves here: two 2 in 1s, and one ombre 2 in 1… it’s so light! And for those of you that are looking for colors that won’t overheat you, here is your answer!
And oh mannn… this necklace of my mother’s that I discovered recently (it’s also in the last post!); I’m wearing it almost every day! Now I just need to hunt some down for the store so you can all enjoy something similar!
Hope you are all having a beautiful day!! Sending you a big smile and a reminder to everyone to take a few minutes today to talk to your creator about anything that is challenging you, and also give a big, grateful thank you for the gift that life is. Kol tuv! ❤
Soooo I am wearing my two new favourite tichels from the summer line! These ombre two in ones are so awesome!!!! They’re very light and durable and I’m finding that adding one is like adding three new scarves without adding any bulk! And this brown pashmina (we named it Andrea’s Brown because I’m so crazy about it) is just… so yummy! I can’t even explain why I love it so much… it’s just such a special color! And these pins – Rivka Malka and I had doubts about these… they actually aren’t so great off a tichel, but ON a tichel! Wow! Made for it! My husband says they remind him of grapes 🙂 They just add so much… very happy!
Sending so much love and happiness to all of you!! Play on!
Love, Andrea xo
These photos were taken while we’re preparing for our new summer line to launch at the Wrapunzel store! It all happens tonight at 8pm EST on wrapunzel.com – we are so excited! (And so is Rivka Malka’s doggy!)
Rivka Malka came over today to plan for our upcoming workshops/shows and I could not get over how awesome her outfit was! Especially on this rainy day! “What shows?” you may be asking; well, we have 7 (maybe even 8!) planned between now and June 8th… craziness! My next post will be giving those dates and places to you because you’ve asked, so sit tight, they’re acomin’! ANYWAY, here’s what RM had to say about what she was wearing today:
“A cropped jean jacket is a perfect coverup for a shell that you might otherwise not feel comfortable wearing on its own! I just got this one and I know it’s going to be a joy to wear this summer! It really brings everything together! And whomever said you can’t wear patterned tichels with patterned skirts?! Just make sure that the color families are complimentary!”
And here is what she had to say about her fantastic tichel: “I really think the dandelion joy is the most underrated tichel. I wear mine constantly [Andrea’s note: she really does!] and it somehow manages to do what both a flowered and geometric scarf can do, without really falling into either category! It has so many colors that you can choose to bring out – I chose the pink today – and its movement and lightness is perfect for the summer. I can’t get enough!”
Can we just take a moment to appreciate how awesome this woman is?! Seriously… in awe! Enjoy, y’all!!
Rivka Malka is a woman with so much to give, and someone that I look up to very much. Along with being a wonderful wife, mother, mentor, teacher, cook, speaker, and friend, she also wears the most stunning scarves on her head! Here are some photos of her creations. Love the colours!
Rivka Malka also has a beautiful site – rivkamalka.com. In it, you’ll find lots of brilliant, deep, quirky, informative and creative videos, writing, and photos. The site is about everything spiritual, and everything fun! Have fun exploring!
