Gorgeous Golden Tichels + Our Newest Challenge!



Hi, ladies! It’s time for another Wrapunzel Challenge round-up and this one is full of wraps inspired by the sun! While most chose to wear yellow and golden-colored hues, we saw many Wrapunzelistas interpret this theme in interesting ways: tichels that remind them of dawn and dusk… green, to represent the sun’s effect on nature and growth… selfies taken IN the sun. The possibilities were endless!

Thank you all SO much for your participation! Don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of this post for our next challenge theme’s big reveal and to learn how to participate. Need some sunshine-y inspiration? Our #wrapunzeledinsunshine collage below will not dissappoint!!!

*Bonus: Somewhere in these photos is the tiniest little Wrapunzelista we’ve ever seen! Can you find the precious baby #wrapunzeledinsunshine?


For our next challenge, we’ve decided to focus on one of the most perfect accessories for warmer temperatures. An easy way to jazz up any simple tichel styles and take it from great to fabulous! To learn more, check out the reveal video below:

Bright ‘n’ Beautiful!

I try to convey to women that one should continuously strive to love covering her hair (as with all mitzvot), which means coming to understand it deeply, emotionally, philosophically, logically, and then learning how to put all that knowledge into her daily practice.  On the same note, I would never advise a quiet, subdued woman begin by wearing outlandish wraps, same as I would not advise an extroverted, bubbly woman start covering by wearing something neutral.

That being said, we are so much more than the labels that we give ourselves, and I ALWAYS encourage women to try something new and not get stuck in a hair wrapping rut.  I have often surprised myself by loving colours and styles that I had previously deemed “not me”.  Hence the story behind this beautiful wrap;  Hot pink, bright green and a huge yellow flower?  So not “me”.  But I tried it, and ended up loving it!

Here are too many pictures of this beautiful wrap.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did 🙂

Same Wrap with Different Scarves!

It’s amazing how the same wrap can look drastically different with different scarves.  These are both scarves that I’ve showed you on this site before.  The first one is yellow and made of a very thin cotton:

The second one is a thicker pashmina-like scarf, that had large vertical stripes and intricate texture.  Vive le difference!

This is proof that you only need to master one wrap and then try it with different scarves to get a myriad of different styles!  The wrap used for both of the above examples is a Regal Wrap.

Happy Wrapping Y’all! ❤

Flower Power

I can’t even tell you how many compliments and smiles I got just by wearing this bright flower on a sunny day.  Yay for making people happy!  Others seemed to think that this was a very complicated wrap, but really, it’s only a regal wrap with the stretchy flower headband added in.  Will definitely be doing this style more often!

Flowers ‘n’ Ribbons

I am really starting to look forward to opening my mail box.  There are so many artistic ladies on this site! My friend, Stephanie, who is a Lady Wrap Star (see her post here) is also starting to make her own scarf wrapping accessories!  They are gorgeous, and work very well because they are specifically made for those of us that cover with scarves.  I am loving this pretty gift of a yellow flower clip/headband – I can’t seem to stop wearing it!

I hope that one day I can start being crafty like some of the ladies on here… but for now, I can just get excited about opening my mail box!  Here is the flower headband/clip on a different wrap:

Stephanie is also making hair clip holders (basically, a pretty ribbon – or two – attached to a loop that can be hung on your wall) and sent me one.  It holds my flower clips beautifully and is very practical for storage.  You can see it on the left side of this photo.  (On the right is how I store my pins.)  Yay no more crushed flowers!

I am not sure, but I do think she is selling her creations and since everything is made by hand, will do special requests.  I will let her clarify that!  Thank you Stephanie!
(and FYI – she did not ask me to make this post… but how could I not? ❤ )

Yellow & Gold

After last week’s surprise success with the colour yellow, I was encouraged by a special reader to try wrapping with a gold scarf.  The funny (and amazing) thing is that within a few hours of receiving her suggestion, I was waiting for a friend who was running late and decided to duck into a gift shop.  All their “winter” scarves were on a huge sale, and I put winter in quotes because included was a beautiful, sheer, woven gold scarf.  This is the wrap that I created with it… and YES, I will make a video tutorial on how to do the twist part, because I just figured it out!

I took these photos with a faulty camera in a room with inadequate light, so I had to play with the settings on my computer to make them look acceptable… yay artsy!

Surprise yourself!

Yellow.  The colour that I long refused to wear.

I claimed that since it matched with my hair, I couldn’t pull it off because I would be “all one colour”.  Somehow, when I started covering my hair, I neglected to realize that since my hair colour would no longer be showing, this logic no longer applied.  Since covering my hair, I had always avoided yellow scarves and ran towards my favourite blues and greens.

Well, of course this logic was flawed, because my own “yellow” hair was no longer showing!  Therefore I would not be all one colour if I wore it.

Thanks to my mistakenly holding this scarf up to my face in a store (I was reaching for the blue), I have realized that yellows and golds are probably some the most beautiful colours for me to wrap over my hair!  I especially like this scarf because it is so big and soft… quite comfortable!  And of course, my “tichel tiara” made it look even more elegant.  I think this is one of my new favourites!

Lesson learned;  Surprise yourself!  🙂
