Headscarf Heaven

I don’t know about you, but I have a drawer full of colorful, designer silk scarves that I honestly never wear. I bought them all before I was married, thinking I’d put them to lots of good use with a pair of designer shades, some hoop earrings, and a good bag. I wasn’t yet versed in the ins-and-outs of covering my hair… the fact that due to its slip-off texture, silk is quite useless. Well, that was then. Now I have to say, headscarf lovers – rejoice!

Last week, my sister-in-law (thanks Rivky!!) gave me something she wanted me to try; a WiGrip. To be quite honest, I can’t say I would have tried it had it not been handed to me. I know it looks rather superfluous (why on earth would we want to add another layer to our already annoyingly covered heads??), but this little number totally and completely rocks!! I reluctantly tried putting it on under a tichel (I usually use bobby-pins to keep them in place), and when I realized how well it works, I whipped out all my silk numbers and got totally turban-happy! I’ve been having so much fun playing around with all these different looks, prints, and designs. I’ve been creatively inspired since the Prada turbans walked the runways a few years ago, and more recently by SJP’s turban-do in SATC2… so happy to finally have more than two style options when skipping the wig! : )

This WiGrip is fantastic under anything you’d like to keep in place (I wore a silk scarf to the playground with Freida yesterday, and felt like I had nothing on. Even through all our roughhousing, I swear the thing didn’t move an inch!). But it was essentially formated to be used under a wig, negating the need for clips and combs – providing more comfort and fewer hair-thinning zones…

You can get one at Milano Collection for $20.
