I came across this short illustrated guide to Hasidic women's head-coverings, and thought t would be a good way to get back to posting here...
Here it is: Shpitzels, frisettes, sheitls, and more
I'm interested in the differences between the various sorts of small amounts of false hair that are delineated here- especially how restrained false hair is labeled so differently from loose false hair. I'd love photos as well as the illustrations, but they do make the differentiation very clear. I partiularly love the note at the end, about wigs: "The last is considerate very liberal headgear in Williamsburg, and women are often asked not to enter a synagogue uncovered."
In the meantime, I've added a new blog project that has been getting a bunch of my attention during the little one's naps- Nursing At Shul, where I'm putting out information that people share with me about breastfeeding in the synagogues they go to.
I've been camera-less for a while, but it has recently been restored to me, so hopefully we'll be back in business" with both photos and textual content.
