Tying a tichel head scarf is really fun and can always be an original way to cover ones hair. You can tie an israeli tichel the way you want so it reflects your style resulting inyour own head covering exactly the way you want it! Simply choose a head scarf of your choice in style, fabric and color and tie it up in one of the many ways to tie a tichel. A tichel makes a great head covering for any occasion and can give a casual look as well as an elegant look.

Above, we tied a headscarf in a simple tie on the neck and dressed it up with different kinds of embellishments. Follow a few simple steps and within a few seconds you can transform your simple headscarf into a beautiful head covering.

1. Start by putting your hair up in a bun or pony. For those with hair loss or thin hair you might want to try wearing a hidden height undercover to give some volume or simply stuff it up with something else.

2. Fold your square Israeli tichel head scarf into a triangle. Our model is wearing a Basic Israeli Tichel in Black.

3. You should have one end of the tichel hanging on either side of your head and one in the back. Take the two sides on either side of your head and gently make a tie in the back of your neck. Make sure that the tie is firm and secure.

4. You can either leave the back piece hanging or you may want to tuck it in and under the tie you just made by your neck.

Now comes the fun part! As you can see from the pictures above, we took a simple tie and added different kinds of hair accessories to dress it up and make it look really cool!

If you’re looking for a more  casual head cover and want some color and spunk, try clipping on an alligator clip with the color you desire. Our model in the picture above is wearing a Daisy Flower Clip for Girls in pink, green and blue.

For a more elegant yet simple look, you might want to go for a bobby pin or a clip with decorative rhinestones or studs to give a slight glimmer. Our model in the picture above is wearing our Swirl Bobby Pin for Updo.

Perhaps you’re looking for a shimmery and glittery look? Try something with sequins and you’ll absolutely shine! Our model in the picture above is wearing a sequin headwrap.

If you like to stand out and make a statement, try wearing a simple solid headscarf and dressing it up with a bright hair accessory. For example, our model in the picture above is wearing a black head scarf with a bright red Velour Turban Twist Headband and boy does it stand out!

Of course, there are so many more hair accessories you can try and experiment on your own head scarf, these are just a few general ones we thought would give you a basic picture. Have fun tying and good luck!!

How To Tie A Tichel – Center Turban Twist Style

1. In our demonstration, we did not use anything to stuff up the back of the head. If you are experiencing hair loss, there is no need to wear anything underneath and if you have long hair just make sure it is in a tight bun or under a fitted snood.

2. When tying our headscarf in a “center turban twist style” we experimented with our Oblong Israeli Tichel with Lurex in wine. However, you may use any long oblong headscarf of your choice.

3. Start by placing your oblong headscarf centered on your head. Then, take both ends of the scarf and make a knot at the front/ top of your head (as oppose to most other styles where you make a knot at the back of your neck).

4. Now, take both ends of the knot and hold them tightly together. Gently and firmly twist them together to form a long twisted pony.

5. Take the long twisted pony and wrap it around and around in a circle to form a turban twist at the top of your head.

How To Tie a Tichel- Classic Turban Knot Style

The classic turban knot style is a really easy and original way to tie a tichel. It is perfect for hot summer days when you want something light and colorful to hold all your hair back and keep your hair off your neck. It has a great fitted support and makes covering your hair a dream. The best part is that you can design your own tichel! Simply choose a headscarf of your choice with a turban knot head wrap in whichever color you like and you have it. You can go a little darker and simple for a dressy look and loud and colorful for an everyday or funky look. It’s up to you – be original!

In the demonstration above we used a hidden height undercover to make it look like there is a head full of hair. You can simply put your hair in a bun, or for those with thin hair or hair loss a hidden height undercover will do the trick.

1. When tying our headscarf in the Classic Turban knot style, we experimented with our Purple Oblong Tichel with Flowers. However, you may use any oblong headscarf of your choice. Start by placing your oblong rectangular headscarf centered on your head. If the head scarf is very long, fold it in half first.

2. Take both sides of the headscarf and make a tie or knot in back of your neck.

3. Now, gently take the whole headscarf that’s hanging down and tuck it in and under the knot you just made. It should look like a snood with no tails hanging down.

4. In the demonstration we chose a white turban knot head wrap. Choose the color turban knot you want and place it as the band to support and hold the head scarf in place.

The “Beehive style” is an original and different way to tie a tichel. It is stylish, classy, dressy and whatever else you want it to be! It is lightweight and comfortable which makes it a great style for the spring or summer and brings tying headscarves to a different level. Women with hair loss or thin hair especially like this style due to the added height this style provides.

1. In our demonstration, we put on a hidden height undercover to provide the height necessary. However, it can also be achieved by just putting your hair up in a high pony or bun and cover it with a snood.

2. When tying our headscarf beehive style, we experimented with our  Striped Head Scarf with Gold Lurex. However, you may use any long oblong headscarf. Start by placing your oblong rectangular headscarf centered on your head. Then take both sides of the headscarf and gently make a tie or knot in the back of your head.

3. Now, take the tail hanging on the left side of your head and cross it over to the other side. Don’t forget to cross it in a layered manner to give it the beehive took that you are looking for.

4. Do the same with the other side. By now you will have 2 loose ends on either side so just tuck them in to your snood or hidden height undercover for a neat and put together look and comfort.

Babushka Headscarves

Babushka Head Scarf

Babushkas Head Scarves

Headscarves have tons of different names and one of the most interesting ones is the term Babushka.

What is a babushka? Typically, a Babushka is a 3 foot long head scarf that is folded into a triangle and then tied under the chin.

How did Babushka’s get their name?

Well the term Babushka is really the Russian word used for Grandmother and it is still quite typical for elderly women in Russia to cover ther hair with a headscarf in this manner.

However don’t think for a minute that giving head scarves the name Babushka means that headscarves can’t be cool ‘cause not cool “Babushka’s are sooo yesterday.

In June of 2011 NPR ran a story of some very very cool Babushkas. A group of elderly Russian women all widowed from the village of Buranovo in the Udmurt Republic formed a band that was pretty good. They became somewhat of a sensation in Russia started giving concerts around the country. Eventually they scored an invite to the Eurovision contest and they showed up on the flashy Eurovision set clad in their taditional Urdmurt clothing, Long dresses, and yup, Babushka headscarves.

No they didn’t win that year’s Eurovision contest but they did prove that headscarves – especially Babushka Headscarves – are really cool!

How To Tie A Tichel – Butterfly Style

The “butterfly” tie a great and original way to tie a headscarf. It’s light weight and very comfortable to wear. It gives a great spring or summery look and brings tying headscarves to a different level. It’s a style using two head scarves to create one custom head covering giving it a more fashionable look.

1.    When tying our headscarf butterfly style we experimented using a fringed headscarf over a simple, not fringed head scarf. Our model is wearing the Israeli Tichel with Flower Design in peach as the head scarf on the bottom.  Take your square headscarf and fold it into a triangle. Gently put it over your head. You should have a tail hanging on either side of your head and a tail hanging down by your neck.

2.    Our model is wearing the Basic Israeli Tichel with Lurex and Fringes in white as the second head scarf. Take your square headscarf and fold it into a triangle. Gently put it over your head the same way as the first one however, place it about one inch further back than the first scarf.

3.    Now, take the one inch part from the first headscarf that is sticking out and slowly and carefully fold it over the second head scarf forming a band with height.

4.    Finally, take all four tails (two from each side) and tie them tightly in the back of your neck to ensure your head scarf is strong and secure.
