Hey Everyone! This is an exciting new thing for me… Rivka Malka and I made some tutorials TOGETHER!!!! It was so much fun to do – very different from anything I’ve done before!! Here they are! Let me know what you think!
Wowwwww what a response to the last post! You all really wanted a tutorial, and I wanted to figure out new ways of doing this awesome Naomi Wrap… so here you go!
Sooooo what should we call it?? I have already thought of “The Naomi” but that probably won’t work because I have a feeling we will have many more wraps on here inspired by her! Something with the word “Knots”? But nothing “knotty” please :p
My sis-in-law Naomi (remember her as a Lady Wrap Star?) posted this super cool wrapping style she created yesterday, and I just HAD to try it! I wanted an simple around-the-house-doing-work style for today, and this one is as easy as she makes it sound… and guess what – I’m not wearing a shaper/volumizer! Just a scrunchy!
Here are her instructions on how to do it! Take one long, lightweight rectangle. Tie at the nape of the neck (ends hanging at equal length. Tie a series of 4 single loose knots with the ends. Wrap up and over the bun. Takes two minutes, looks so complicated!! Just make sure you use a really long scarf so that even after the knots you still have long enough ends to go all the way over the bun and tuck in. For a shorter scarf maybe 3 knots would be better
Thanks Naomi for the inspiration!! Here is a shot of her wearing it (with a longer scarf so therefore tighter knots and a shaper/volumizer underneath.) See how tiny little “details” change the whole look? Imagine with a sparkly scarf – it could even be formal wear!
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!)
