Naomi Rose and Andrea Together!

Look at our different face shapes and personalities, and how you can use your tichel to highlight these unique features and allow your inner essence to shine!

Look at the gorgeous soft height on Naomi Rose, and the awesome shimmery-ness I'm wearing!

Check out the gorgeous soft height on Naomi Rose, and the awesome shimmery-ness I’m wearing! No such thing as too many shimmeries… right?

In the photo above, you can see how Naomi Rose has highlighted her beautiful face shape with a wrap that give height at the back and not the sides.  And of course the teal and wine combo is just sumptuous!  (She’s wearing a Trust and Sari Scarf.)  I decided to go Shimmerycrazy with some side volume, angles (but not too angled because my face can’t take it!) and a side braid!  Loved this!

Now check out the next one we did!  I decided that I wanted to try the height at the top too… but made sure that I extended it around the sides as well which worked beautifully!   I really should wear this Lakeshore Bliss tichel more often!  Naomi Rose looks ethereal and earthy in her Peaceful Mornings and Gold Roses headband tied in the Shira Tails style!

Now honestly, both of us could have swapped styles and we still would have loved it, but the styles we wore during these particular photos reflected how we were feeling at the time, and what kind of light we wanted to give to the world!  I’m so lucky to know this woman!

Wishing you all the bracha, beauty, and joy in the world!
Love, Andrea

Andrea’s Face Shape Fiasco

So you all heard Tova talk about face shape in her last post, right?  I want to show you an example of my experimenting with height and angles in a way that did NOT suite my face shape!  (And certainly doesn’t work with my personality either!)  Please note that I have a long face, pointy chin and nose… and generally look best in softer angles and shapes, with more volume at the sides instead of on top.  This style would be great for someone that wants to enhance the angles of her face and make it look thinner.

This wrap would look AMAZING on someone else with a different personality, but not so much on me!

I snapped these photos as an example, but immediately changed into a much softer and more comforting wrap which suits my face shape and personality better.  Whew!

Now don’t get me wrong… y’all know that I love doing the crazy layers/braids/angles like nobody’s business!   However those layers need to be done with my face shape in mind; flat near the front (even if it has layers) and then more volumous/crazy at the back and on the sides!  In the following example, I’m still doing a lot of height, but father back and with better angles to suit my face shape and personality 🙂

At Wrapunzel we want to teach you to look YOUR best in a tichel!  This means that you might see a photo of someone else and they look AWESOME, but that look may not be right for you!  We’d love to hear in the comments, what are some looks that just don’t work for you and why?  And what have you learned from your experimentation?

Love, Andrea

Tova Speaks!

I am just so happy for all of you to finally meet Tova!

Tova is one of the warmest, funniest people I know… you can just talk and laugh with her for hours!  There’s so much I could say about her, but I’ll just focus on a few key tidbits; she happens to be an EXTRAORDINARY cook of Indian food (she also is a culinary genius at other things, but I’m biased) and this is coming from me, a total Indian food connoisseur.  She has a beautiful family and home, and she is very artistic.  She makes beautiful earrings by hand!  All this pairing of wonderful flavors and artistry comes out in her vibrant personality and beautiful tichel tying.  In this video, she tells us a bit about herself and how she wears her headscarves in the professional world.  She also has an incredibly important message for us about how to tie your tichels based on one’s face shape.  Listen up!
