Hi all

I've been doing this bun for some time - but then I got to think - which bun is it?


I make it, by gathering the hair, drag the ponytail upwards, making a loop. Then twist the end a little and just wrap it round the base. Insert a pin in the loop, under the base and out again in the loop.

It reminds me a little of the nautilus, but my hair is a bit short for that loop.

Is it either a lazy wrap, or Gibralter? I was doing Gibralter buns for months before I realised what it was, I came up with it myself, and laeter found a tutorial for it, its very aptly named (for its rock-like holding properties ;) )

I did the lazy bun for a while, but as my hair grew longer, it became to heavy to stay.

I do see, that it reminds a bit of it - but instead of inserting the pin after the 2 turns and then twist the rest around, I do that before the pin - much better hold.

I'm curious as well, as I do this bun almost daily.

Thats how I do my lazy wrap too, there are different methods ;)

This is my lazy wrap (upside down, and before I figured out that was what I'd done! Must have watched a tutorial and just remembered it). Looks a lot like yours :)

W2 when my hair got too long for the regular nautilus, I do the double-wrapped kind, where you make the loop TWICE before wrapping the hair around the base. It is much more secure.

Looks like this: http://kupferzopf.com/dutts/wickeldutt.html
It's a version of the LWB.

This is what I do with a stick; I wrap it over a stick instead of my fingers, but the last step is to flip the stick over (make the pointed end face 2:00 instead of 7:00) and then insert it.

I don't know the name but it's neat.
