The French Connection: Unique Headscarves From Overseas

Blumberg-011813-blck-silver

Another notable piece sold by Judith de Paris is the Kaly, a simplified version of a turban. Patented by the aforementioned designer Rinati Lakel, the Kaly is a two-piece head covering consisting of a snood-like base and a headband that goes on top. It looks complicated, but is actually super easy and fast to put on. When worn, the Kaly looks like a complexly tied turban when, in fact, you just slip it on without having to make any knots, bows or ties. Another nice thing about the sophisticated Kaly is that it can be personalized – you can mix and match the colors of the two pieces and add ribbons or jewels for your own unique look.

Judith Levy views her elegant head coverings as a crown – and it is her mission to help other frum women feel the same. She founded Judith de Paris as a way to bring beautiful and tzniut hair coverings to the masses; to have women realize that they can cover their hair in a fabulous, yet very modest way. And after trying some of her chic pieces, I must say, she’s absolutely right.

    "many French women start wearing wigs in lieu of headscarves so as not to be confused with hijab-wearing Arabs".

    There is another reason: France does not permit the wearing of religious garb in schools. The target was Muslims, as usual, Jews are collateral damage.

  2. The style jewish woman wear is totally different then the Arab women…….easy to tell,atleast in Israel!!

  3. Charlie Hall says:

    I almost mentioned that in my comment on the site, but decided to limit myself to one point.

    I also almost mentioned that only in Paris have I ever seen large numbers of Sephardic women wearing wigs.

    Gorgeous! I just ordered 5 of the Kaly bases, to go with my huge scarf collection. Now I can wear my skinny scarves as headbands!

While we all go to restaurants for a good meal, it is dessert, that final taste that lingers in your mouth, that is the crown jewel of any dining experience and Six Thirteen’s offerings did not disappoint.

Today, fifty years and six million (!) people later, Israel is truly a different world.

There will always be items that don’t freeze well – salads and some rice- or potato-based dishes – so you need to leave time to prepare or cook them closer to Yom Tov and ensure there is enough room in the refrigerator to store them.

As a newly certified makeup artist, I am eager to be able to share all the tips and tricks I’ve learned in beauty school. Truth be told, I’ve been pretty passionate about beauty products since I first laid eyes on a flavored lip-gloss as a preteen. I’ve amassed a sizeable collection of makeup over the years, experimented on many friends, and even earned a Bachelor’s degree in Cosmetics Marketing (as only someone who takes the beauty industry pretty seriously can do!) But despite my years of being involved with beauty products recreationally, training professionally as a makeup artist has taught me certain insider secrets I would have never discovered otherwise.
