Time to Start Thinking about Cold Weather Accessories!

Even if you are not yet wearing a coat, a scarf, earmuff and gloves will keep you toasty

Even if you are not yet wearing a coat, a scarf, earmuff and gloves will keep you toasty

Where I live, on the East Coast, cooler weather is definitely in the air. Especially in the early morning and evening, its no longer ok to leave the house as is. Time to start thinking about the cold weather accessories for the cooler weather.

Now is the time to take down that box on the top shelf of your closet and make sure you are well prepared. Gloves and Scarves have a habit of disappearing in my house. How ’bout by you? Good thing ear muffs are attached or I’d definitely lose half a pair!!

So once that box is down, check if you have the pairs you need in the colors you need. Kids and adults will love the colorful gloves and mittens in the softest chenille’s and knits this winter! Check that kids gloves still fit, and a nice way to update the look of a coat from last season is to buy a new pair of mittens in a bright fresh color for a whole new look!

Another great warm winter accessory you don’t want to go without is ear muffs or ear warmers. Even if you are not yet wearing a coat, a scarf, earmuff and gloves will keep you toasty. Buy earmuffs in a fun army print for boys or pink leopard print for girls.

Have fun with shopping for warm winter gear that will keep you cozy and healthy all winter long!

Have You Tried a Pre-tied Bandana Yet? Check Out One Of The Hottest Head Coverings On The Market!

Pre-tied bandanas are rapidly making it as one of the hottest and most liked head coverings everywhere.  For those of you who don’t know what a pre-tied bandana is, it’s basically a pre-tied headscarf. Instead of buying a head scarf and tying it yourself, simply buy a ready made, pre-tied bandana in the color and pattern you like and slip it on! It is pre sewn with an elastic in the back to hold it securely at the neck. In addition, they are made of comfortable materials such as cotton, lycra, velour and terry for different needs and seasons. A pre-tied bandana can be worn in many ways which makes it a fun head covering!

Below are a few different ways to wear a pre-tied bandana.

1. Wear a pre-tied bandana as a partial head covering. Take your pre-tied bandana, put it on your forehead and pull it back till about half way down your head. The rest of your hair should be sticking out. Wearing a pre-tied bandana as a partial head covering is great for those with thin hair, bald spots and those who are starting to lose their hair.

2. Wear it as a full head covering. Slip it on and tuck all your hair under the elastic by the neck. Simple as that! You should have two tails, one hanging down on either side of your head. If you’d like you can leave them hanging or you can make a knot so they should be short and out of your way. It makes a great head covering for those who cover all their hair for religious purposes or those with partial or full hair loss.

3. Try tying your pre-tied head scarf into a bun style! For this style, you will need to buy a pre-tied bandana with long tails (around 10-14 inches) to make it work. Those with hair loss can or a short hair cut can use a Hidden HEIGHT cotton undercover to achieve the same look. Put your hair into a bun and then put on your pre-tied. Then, simply take one of the tails, twist it, and wrap it tightly around the top of the bun. Tuck the excess fabric of the tail under the twist once you have gone fully around one time.  Do the same with the other tail and you’re all done! One more tip: add a scrunchie pony holder to your bun to increase the volume if you have thin or short hair.

These are just a few basic ideas but there are so many more out there to experiment – be original!  Once you get used to wearing a pre-tied bandana you’ll start wondering how you ever lived without one!

The
Beehive style

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
