Gettin’ Creative!

It’s a new year (the Jewish year of 5774 just began), so what better time to start creating some new wraps!  You may have noticed in the last tutorial that I am experimenting with gathering the scarves at the side of my head instead of the back; this one today is no exception.  I started off doing two long twists dangling at either side of my head… but then my husband walked by, tried to hide his laugh, so I decided not to go out like that… it did look funny! (Maybe an idea for Purim?)  So I undid one twist, wrapped the remainder around my head (creating a really neat knot at the side of my head) and let the other twist hang.  It’s  interesting how twisting at the side of your head completely changes the shape of the wrap!  I am not sure that this one works so well for my face shape, but I am sure that it will work for others!  As soon as I master the side gathering thing, I will make a tutorial!

Easy Summer Style

This one is super easy, and only requires one square scarf (no volumizer or any add-ons).  It is much lighter than the usual wraps I wear, and I find that it’s making me happy every time I pass a reflective surface!  Will definitely be experimenting with similar styles over the next few days.

Fancy Side Ponytail

(Scroll down to the comments section of this post to see a very interesting discussion about hair covering and religion.)

I am very happy with the results of this wrap!  This particular style is a Regal Wrap with Hanging Tails, except instead of using the pin to secure the ends, I used the purple tails to create a side ponytail.

It was also nice to discover that I had earrings with red, purple and turquoise in them… so my nails actually matched (somewhat)!
