We were on our own for shabbos dinner, and sometimes it's nice to go easy. This isn't a style for anyone who covers all their hair, or for anyone with short hair. But it's a nice, easy variant that covers the head well, and still restrains the hair, without covering it entirely. While we didn't actually go out this Friday night, I do wear this out, on occasion.
It can also be worn with only one scarf, either using each tail of the scarf as one strand of the braid, or by splitting the hair into two sections, and using the scarf tails as one strand of the braid. The effects are a little bit more obvious with more differentiated colors of scarves. Since this week, I went with dark colors, here's a close-up:
And a profile, to show the little headband I added, for a brighter color:
Stay tuned for Shabbat, part 2: Maya and a hat!
