Triple-y Twisted, the new DB?

So I was running out of the house today, ready to do my go-to double braid (the DB), when I thought, why not do three twists instead of two braids?  Both use three 2 in 1s, which were already on my head all ready to go!  So I tried it, and do I ever like it!  What do you think?  Do you think this will be the new DB?

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!  Remember to take a moment, breathe in the miraculous air around you, and be thankful for all the miracles in your life!  Thank you for making the Wrapunzel community the living miracle that it is!

Navy and Mint!!

Lately it hasn’t been very often that you’ll see me wearing one scarf… I’d forgotten how beautiful it can be!!  Yes, layers are incredible, but sometimes you just want one scarf to shine… and this Navy Shimmery certainly did that beautifully.  I added a necklace and that was it!  The wrap I did was a waterfall twist (with an extra little twist) and it stayed put all night long with no adjustment needed!  Since I was wearing a black shaper underneath, no other scarves were needed except the one!

The outfit I wore was another lucky Goodwill find!  I almost didn’t buy it because I thought it would be hard to match, but then remember I had a mint shell and a navy skirt that would work perfectly with it!  This was one of those fancy but super comfortable outfits that I know I’ll wear again!  I hope you enjoy it!

I hope you are all having an inspiring, healthy, cathartic, and grateful weekend!  Sending you much love and light!

New Tutorial! Waterfall Twist 2.0

Here is how to do an amped up version of the Waterfall Twist!  This is one of my favourite wraps and the option of doing the “twist” part with two colours opens up a whole new world of possibilities!  Enjoy!

Bold Patterns!

Here is some outfit inspiration for all of you!  Who says you can’t wear patterns in our outfit and on your head at the same time?  This skirt is VERY bold for my normal wardrobe, and I usually just wear it with a black top and simple wrap.  Never realized it could look so good with more colour added!

This wrap is a basic twist wrap – check out the tutorial!  Have you tried this wrap yet?

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!

Spiral Rose Tutorial!

A word to the wise: if you have just stumbled upon Wrapunzel and/or you are hair wrapping beginner, best you not start with this tutorial!  However, you should definitely watch it to see the wraps that are possible!  This is the most technique intensive tie that I have done, and as you can see in the video, I still haven’t perfected the mechanics of it!  However, so many of you asked, so here is the tutorial!
