Fashion Tichel by Hermes

 
An image from “Play Time With My Scarf” on the site for Hermès


This is the fashionable tichel (scarf) on the  head as seen in The New York Times.  This is a very common look in my neighborhood.  Many of the young married women leave a bit of hair, teasingly out of their covering.  Hair covering can be very "in."  And hair coverings can be very glamorous.  There's nothing more sophisticated than a great hat.

Haddassah from In The Pink had an interesting post on hair covering a couple of days ago.

It must have passed me by.

I wonder what the editors of the New York Times would say if they knew that the look they're promoting is very popular in communities which they deem to be "obstacles to peace"...
