    Default Hair Style Dictionary Instruction links - please help!

    Hiya, guys!

    This is yet another branch of the whole Hair Style Dictionary project. We have now gotten to the instructions links. I've been hosting this at my blog so far, but now it's coming to an end and I need more attention

    I've been googling my fingers raw to fill out as many blanks in this list as possible, and I daresay I've done an alright job. However, some styles are more difficiult to find instructions for, and with others I just don't know what they actually look like - and then I am reluctant to put a link in there simply because it seems likely - we need higher standards than that! And it is of course always preferable to have several tutorials, both for visual learning and because different sets of instructions make the process easier.

    So what I need from you ladies is the links I lack - and also, if you have the time or want to learn more styles, proofing the links already there. Are they understandable or pure rubbish? You tell me! I would really appreciate it if you took the time to look over these from me *flutters eyelashes*

    Lastly, I want to thank all you kind souls who have put style instructions out there (and you who helped me find them!). Eadwine, Isilya, KarenLynn and others, you are my new best friends as you saved me from some of the inevitable headaches. I hope you're flattered and not annoyed that we try to gather this all together Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    If you have links for any of these, please comment here so I can add them directly. Written instructions are okay, written instructions with pics are better, and written instructions with pics and a video tutorial are pure gold. I will be editing as it becomes necessary.

    Somewhere here Gladtobemom has a thread on her Nanny Pauline (lol, I laugh every time because my Nanny is also Pauline). Linked in it are excellent instructions for a coronet braid.

    I would find it and link it, but I are HTML dumb.

    Thanks, plainjanegirl! You always seem to find the ones I miss. I am pondering whether this is because you are smart or because I'm a bit slow

    Thank you, I found it Am gonna send off a PM to her for some clarification, as I am continually wondering what is the difference between a coronet and a crown braid
