It's been a while since I have logged in and posted anything. I think the last time my hair was at mid-back. Now I'm running out of ways to do my hair (mostly updos) that I'm not tired of and can't stand sitting on my hair. Any ideas? And I'm getting split ends! shudder:Aaahhhh!!!

Anyway, thanks for letting me rant :D

What updos are you currently doing?

Im trying to remember what updos I did at waist.

Mostly Cinnamon buns and I can't remember what the other one is called. I can never get the French Twist right. I also do a Pony tail twist thing.
Oh yea & a braided bun around a hair stick.

The swirly bun and figure 8 or infinity buns might be able to work for you (I see your hair is thick, so I am not positive.) Have you tried giving them a go?

And if you have too much hair for that, you can always do the braided version of the figure 8 and such. Braiding takes up quite a bit of hair already after all :)

A folded braid works really nice, too.

Thanks, another problem that I have is that my hair was previously layered so it tends to stick out everywhere after it has been braided for a while.

Thanks for all the ideas, I'll have to try them out.

I bumped a thread from awhile back about quick/easy hair styles for waist-plus length hair. It should be pretty easy to find in the mane forum right now.

I could start doing a double looped bun around waist length (I'm also iii), and it's a bun I really like!

Sorry, I don't have a link for it... if I have some time I'll try to find it!
