pink, purple, gold, white, teal, and dark blue… how does it work?!
Can anyone come up with a better name for this wrap?? I’m not a fan of the one I came up with above…
Here is the tutorial that you have all been waiting for! This particular wrap is a match makers dream! I know it’s sometimes hard to match tichels… but keep trying and don’t be afraid to incorporate something new into your wrap!
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!
Here is how to do the much-coveted princess wrap! As you can see by watching the video, this wrap is very easy to do, provided that you have a large enough scarf to begin with (really, my “scarf” is just a piece of cloth). Instead of the lace, you can just use any other long scarf, but the lace makes it look much more royal. Enjoy!
I am loving this new wrap and I hope you will too! Here is the tutorial for an easy summer tie that makes it look like you have a matching flower pinned to the side of your head. And all you need is one square scarf! (Cotton and silky materials both work well.) Enjoy!
Ever wondered how to get that perfect bun and amount of volume at the back of your headwrap? Here is the secret solution! (Well, not so secret anymore.)
Actually, I gave you a grand total of 7 solutions in this video!
Here are the links to some of the places I mentioned in this video (fyi – these resources are not sponsored… just ones that I have used and/or know!)
The volumizer can be found through Judith de Paris. And on facebook.Judith is a lovely woman. You can talk to her personally if you need advice on what size to get etc. – or just ask me for help!
The hijab hump bonnet can be found on ebay through this seller. It comes from Malaysia so you need to have some patience when waiting for it, but there was a lovely handwritten note included. I’m thinking of buying a cotton one from them as well.
My post on how to make it look like you have a huge bun using a long scarf is here.
The volumizer that can be made out of a loofah has a couple of diy tutorials on youtube. Here is one that someone sent to me.
And this is what the hair donut I was describing looks like:
Ok – this one is for when you are pressed on time but still want to look awesome! The wrap is almost the exact same as the “Royal Twist”, except… no twist! This works with all kinds of long scarves… thick, thin, longer, shorter, silk, wool, textured, smooth, solid, or patterned. This is my current go-to wrap, and can be done super fancy or casual, depending on the scarf you choose. Enjoy and happy easy wrapping!
(Yep, half my earring came off in the middle of this video, though I didn’t figure it out at the time… no worries, it is fixed!)
Ahh… the illustrious pashmina. So soft, warm, and elegant. Most ladies who live in climates that dip below 10 degrees Celsius own at least a few of these to keep cozy in the winter months. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could wrap them on our heads as well?
However, sometimes using pashminas as headscarves can leave us with residual feelings of itchiness, slippiness, manuverability complicatedness… and most of all… that dreaded BULKINESS. Now, I for one admire those rare women that can pull off a wide and volumous pashmina wrap, but it takes a lot of guts and the right face shape. So where does that leave the rest of us?
Have no fear, Wrapunzel is here with a pashmina video tutorial!
