Tutorial: Olive Grove aka Layered Waterfall Twist!

As requested by many of you, but specifically for one special woman – you know who you are!

This is such a versatile tie using the “Waterfall Twist” technique!  Make sure you are comfortable with the original technique before trying this one!  Keep in mind as well that depending on how you tie the knot, you will either end up with the fringe father forward or farther back.  Both work!  Check out the photos to see the different ways this technique can work out – it can go super fancy!   For the original look, you will need a shimmery and 2 in 1 in the same colours.  Also experiment with where you tie the knot – it changes the whole look!  Higher up on the crown of your head give a more “crown-like” look  (ie the navy in the tutorial).

Here is the tutorial!

D.B. Detailed Tutorial!!

I’m in Jerusalem!  And of course the first tutorial I make in the beautiful neighbourhood of Nachlaot is… a detailed version of the same video I made the last time we were staying in Nachlaot two years ago!  Here is how to do the Double Braid (the DB!) with 2 in 1s, with the ends tucked in!

Headaches B’gone! No more pulling, pinching, weighing down!

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!

Lotsa Tutorials!!

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!

“The Naomi Knot” Tutorial

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

Gorgeous New Scarf Trick!

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!

Wow!  Thanks for your lovely encouragement and how-to requests from my last post!  Without further ado, here is your tutorial on how to do this stunning wrap!

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!

Princess Wrap 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!

Infinity Scarf Tutorial!

Yes, you read that correctly!  I finally got myself unpacked and organized enough to make videos.  TIme to start sending in your requests!   Here is how to wrap an infinity scarf:
