MyHeadcoverings - A Three Generation Review & Giveaway

You might remember a while back I did a review for
The kind folks over there have offered me the opportunity to do so again - with a twist.

I present to you all a three generation review and giveaway - proving that truly does have something for everyone.

Since the product that I still wear the most from my last review is the pre-tied, I decided to try two of those again. This time I tried a sparkle swirl one, similar to the appliqued one that I own, and an Israeli pre-tied as well. Israeli tichels are all the rage now but tying them can take a small amount of skill and time. I like to be able to "grab and dump" so the idea of an Israeli pre-tied sounded intriguing.
I chose the purple sparkle swirl because the black one was too.... well.... black. And the silver and blue seemed a bit too flashy to me. I think this snood will become my new favorite. It fit snugly and looks so pretty.
Now the Israeli pre-tied will take a bit more finesse... The fabric is INCREDIBLY light, making it a wonderful choice for summer, but figuring out how to create some of those fancier buns and wraps may take me a bit of practice. Good thing it's a pre-tied. Because it looks lovely just as it is, with the tails hanging long. That also fits well with my aforementioned "grab and dump" styling ;) .

My daughter Erica chose the studded beret/short snood in navy which she plans on wearing as a snood. She reports that it’s a very comfortable and light weight knit which should be great for the summer. The studs on the snood give it just the right amount of sparkle - noticeable but not overly flashy. This is definitely a snood that she will wear on a regular basis and she's even considering buying it in another color.

Now little granddaughter Kayla has been wishing for a pretty white headband to go with her summer dresses, and has a lovely assortment of jewelry and hair accessories for the little ones. She settled on the flower headband with sequins and gem and when prompted, said the following about it:
“It’s so pretty and I want to keep it. It’s so sparkly and so shiny. It’s so comfortable and I want to wear it.”

Now once again, what would a review be without a giveaway? We will be giving away a $20 credit towards any item on the site. Many items are less, so you can get them free.

But they need to make sure everything's on a head. I don't know what some of these things are supposed to look like on a person.

I would like to try the Hidden Height Cotton Undercover. I make all my own undertichels and would be interested to see how this looks. Is it good for a bun style? I make sort of a stuffed bun in the back of mine. This looks like some of the top could be gathered into the bun in back. I have to tell you that the black is much more practical. White would get dirty too fast and might show under some scarves.

Wigrip, no question. I got an off brand one someplace else that does seem to work well, but my mother-in-law has the wigrip. I am fine with mine, but I tried her's and it's great. I'm only getting married in two weeks and covering my hair at that point and I'm looking forward to not having to use sheitel clips!

I love Israeli tichels of all sorts.
Because they ARE so light!

FDIL said...

I wear everything, so everything looks good. I've never tried berets before, so I'd try one of those for the summer.

I'm sorry for the delay, but because I think I recognized some of the entrants by their "handles", I wanted an impartial person to activate the online numbers generator.

Then numbers have now been generated and the winner is FDIL.

Please contact me at

If I don't hear from you in a week, I will choose another winner.

Please feel free, those who did not win to use the coupon code!
Happy Shopping.

I love this headband. I couldn't find the navy snood with sparkles, but that sounds pretty.
