Wrapunzel Classic Shaper
We’ve heard people call them boubous, volumizers, humps, bumps and pillow tops! Whatever you call it, our Classic Shaper is essential for creating all Wrapunzel looks!
Like a supportive undergarment (ladies, you know what we’re talking about!) these shapers add the perfect shape under your scarf, and give you an even, pulled-together silhouette. They are essential and we wear them every day! We tried many different shapers, and realized that in order to get the perfect shaper for you, we would have to create our own!
Our Classic Shaper is the perfect size and is completely adjustable – never too tight or loose. It is perfect for those that are headache prone! When we designed this shaper, we chose the highest quality fabric, which contains a good amount of stretch in every direction. And the fabric will not bleed when you wash it! We are sure you’ll love it!
This shaper has a larger ‘pouf’ than the Wrapunzel Signature Shaper for a more dramatic look. See the graphic in our gallery for a comparison of all the Wrapunzel Shapers.
Classic Shaper Wrapping tips!
- To prevent slippage, these shapers must be paired with a No-Slip velvet headband! We place the shaper on half of the grip, leaving the other half available to latch on to the scarf that you put on top. (Due to popular demand, we created a video tutorial with detailed visual instructions on how to do this!)
- If you have longer hair, tie it in a bun low on your head. Then let the “pillow of volume at the back” rest on top of it. Then tie the end strings behind your head and tuck the strings in – this creates an extra big bun! If you have short hair, you can just let the shaper rest anywhere on your head.
- The Classic Shaper can also be used to achieve a low volume look! By simply wearing your No-Slip Headband farther back on your head (you might need a larger headband size for this), the shaper will lay farther back, as well, creating the look of a low bun.
- This shaper is an excellent choice for women who like the look of compact/less round volume when wrapping turbans. To do this, try wearing your hair as loosely as possible underneath the shaper, and position the shaper in the preferred position on your head. The Classic Shaper tends to give a “flatter” look which is very becoming on many turban styles.
Like other garments, hand-washing and laying flat to dry will always extend the life of your shaper, but they can easily be washed with like-colors in a machine, as well! We always suggest doing so in a delicates bag, which will prevent the cap from snagging or becoming misshapen. Also, be sure to use a low heat-setting in a dryer, as too high a temperature can cause the stuffing to melt, potentially causing lumps.
Please note that on rare occasions, our Black grippy velvet fabric’s dye has been known to bleed through onto light colored scarves. To prevent this from happening, you can try setting the dye with a vinegar rinse, for which you can find directions on the internet. It’s important to remember that laundering your Essential Tools renders them non-returnable according to our Return Policy.
