Use this thread to comment on, make suggestions and corrections to the LHC Hairstyle Thesaurus Thread (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=145554). If your post contains information that should be added to the Thesaurus, please report your post so that moderators see it and can make the appropriate changes.




-OP-
Hi all, I'm looking into making a hair style directory thread, most of the existing ones contain dead links and none are stickied so they get lost easily.

Here is what I'm thinking.

Post 1: Explanation of thread
Post 2: Alphabetical list of hair styles
Post 3: Alphabetical list of braids with links (include link to Show Me Your Braids thread)
Post 4: Alphabetical list of buns with links (include link to Show Me Your Buns thread)
Post 5: Alphabetical list of ponytails with links
Post 6: Alphabetical list of other styles with links
Post 7: Alphabetical list of tools

Each detailed list contains links to tutorials, links to LHC threads discussing the style, and tags that identify information about the bun such as if it is center held, has modifications for extreme length, or requires special tools.


Post 2: Hair styles listed in alphabetic order with links to main categories (Braid, Bun, Curls, Ponytail, Other)


Name
Category (can be multiple)




Post 3-6: Alphabetical list of category with links to other resources


Name
Tutorial(s)
Style of month thread
tools
functional info (center held, etc)
length suggestions




Post 7: General tools with links to related threads


Name
Links





I'm thinking this might work best as a locked thread, changes can be made by using the report button to alert mods to what needs to change, with a link to another thread (this one maybe) as a general discussion thread.

Thoughts! What types of information am I missing? Other categories? Other structure?

I think you've got most of it covered... I can't think of anything more to add.

Oh! Don't forget to include a link to the awesome video ladollyvita333 once made; it was a braid-dictionary of all kinds of braided styles. I can look it up for you... hang on... Yep got it!

Here are the styles I've got so far. Please read through and make sure that I'm not missing any and that I don't have duplicates in there under different names (I already caught quite a few, but may have missed some). Some of these are hard to track down, as they are from OLD LHC style lists with dead links and I can't find tutorials (or there is no consistency in what is called and Easy Hairstick Bun) and those are the ones that are likely to be duplicates. Ignore the dates, I'm working in part from the list of Style of the Month threads.

Current list. I've been adding test descriptions to the Test-based Hair Tutorials (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=137377) thread as I feel capable. I eventually want all the styles to have text descriptions in that thread as images are not as permanent as we might like (see recent Photobucket photo deaths) and even many of the videos there were linked to hairstyles previously no longer exist. I've marked the styles with an "x" if I've found or written a description for it.

If anyone wants to provide descriptions, please do! Just put them over in the Text-based thread and I'll see them. Or, if you can improve upon an existing one, please do!

Some of these listed styles I have not been able to identify, I've put them in bold. If you know what this is referring to, please comment, provide link, etc. If it is another name for different bun on the list, just say which one and I'll use the more common name and add an aka note.

Questions:

1)
What would be a good short term to describe the structure common to both Elling Woman's Bun and Amish Braids? They use basic braids with short sections of braid and then additional sections added. The technique creates gaps or loops that are then used as anchors for wrapping or intertwining the braided lengths.

2)
Is there a common term for French, Dutch, Lace braids and Cornrows? These are braids that incorporate sections of hair close to the scalp with each over/under.

From comments on the Braid Thread, I'm going with "root braid".

3)

The braids in that second video! *swoon*

I did find this description of a Goddess Bun in an old thread:

Isn't the Goddess bun something like part your hair from ear to ear, bun the hair in the back in a simple cinnamon bun (or if you want a bigger bun; a sock bun). Then take the front hair, part it in the middle and then you twist each part towards the top of your head and wrap the twisted parts around your bun.

And this picture linked in the archive: http://photobucket.com/gallery/user/thevictorious6/media/bWVkaWFJZDoxMjA4MDMyNDM=/?ref=

Odd, I know others read LHC on phones too. I'll check it out and see if there is anything that can be done.

I went with "root braid" as the braiding is usually continuous close to the roots of the hair. I considered cornrows, but it seemed that terms is applied to multiple smaller braids that lie next to each other.

I learned a "pencil bun' from youtube a million years ago for shorter hair; you started with the stick pointing down next the the ponytail, twisted it around until the stick was facing up and then stabbed it down to catch the scalp hair and left the ends sticking out kind of peacock twisty looking. That being said, I can't find the video anymore, and the term is so vague it's somewhat useless. >.<

First off, neko_kawaii this is an amazing project, thank you for all the hard work you're putting in!

Secondly, for 'pencil bun' I've seen all sorts of variations on youtube. Lots of them are kinda LWBs, or twisting and stabbing like sumidha described. Perhaps you could choose one that's not already duplicated in the list, and then in the entry for pencil bun put 'could also refer to ... ' with relevant links to other entries?

Also all the ballet buns I've seen on youtube are basically very high pinned cinnabuns, with an exceptionally tight ponytail base and half a can of hairspray - not hair-friendly at all! If there is an alternative, LHC-suitable type of ballet bun, that would be awesome.

Okay, so this contribution refers to the text tutorial for a scarf bun here http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=137377&page=8&p=3513673&viewfull=1#post3513673 I can't access the original blog post about the style so I could be slightly off, but I think I can see in my head what the instructions mean and will try to explain a little more clearly. This is clarification for the parts in bold in the post:

---

Wrap the length of the bottom half of the ponytail around the scarf, near the knot. Then roll the scarf and hair up the ponytail, towards your head. All the length should now be wrapped like a tube around the scarf.

STEP 2
When everything is rolled up, tie the ends of the scarf around behind the bun to secure it. Then tuck the ends of the scarf round inside the ends of the 'tube' of rolled hair.

Hope this helps!

Another name for the Hawser Braid is Chain Link Braid, you might want to put that in because I was really confused when I read the description.

I've done that! (Only with a front section. I'm not good enough to do them all over my head! :) ) I think it's the same as a "lace rope braid"? Very nice!

Also, Silvousplaits has a tutorial for the Suebian knot, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=puzgpBoesss&t=5s starts at about 1:03.

Another super cool style is the corset braids https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=puzgpBoesss&t=5s. Make two dutch braids, dropping half of the middle section each stitch towards the center like you are doing a waterfall braid. Then go back and french braid the dropped sections.

Hey there, I was on another thread and @lapushka referred me to have you add FSG to the listed. It refers to flax seed gel which is an acronym used on CurlTalk when referring to a diy hair gel. It would be great if you could add this but I'm not sure if it's an obvious category of the thesaurus thus far.

Hi! Thank you for reminding me of your resource. :) You said this would be a good place to offer suggestions.

(1) Would there be an option to start a complementary gallery? Maybe based on credited member photos (only from people who would offer them or allow it, of course). If there's not a video link, it's not very easy to find out how the style looks like. Small previews would be ideal, but there's probably a good reason why they don't exist yet. And, this is especially relevant for newbies, I often didn't even know how some of the accessories looked like and had to search for them (often googling "longhaircommunity" + "relevant hair toy" to figure out what it is :D). So reading "French twist comb" or "Finishing pins" isn't very informative without knowing what it stands for, if it makes sense. So the gallery could be relevant both for hairstyles and for tools. If hairstyles are too complicated, then at least for the tools. :)

(2) What about a column "also known as"? I know that if you find the alternative name, it links you to the appropriate option (e.g. "Mexican Revolution Buns --> see Princess Leia Buns"), but I would find it very helpful to have them all grouped together to see what's basically synonyms. It's not necessary at all, it would just make searching easier for me so I thought I should mention it. :)

It's not necessary at all, it would just make searching easier for me so I thought I should mention it. :)

1) I think the best way to do a photo gallery would be on a separate thread.

The first problem with photo heavy threads is the bandwidth they take to load, it can be very challenging for people with slow or limited internet connections to load those threads. The second problem is preserving the photos for an extended period of time. If you look through old threads, most of the photos are missing, and the reasons why are numerous. The third problem, as you mention, is permission. The fourth problem is the inevitable perception of preference. Whose pictures do you choose/accept?

You could start a thread asking people to post their best pictures of any style with a simple picture + style name format. That thread could be searched by people looking for specific styles. Do you want to keep people from commenting and congesting the thread with noise? How would you do that?

You could start a thread listing styles and linking to photo examples (bypassing the need to ask for permission to repost) but how do you choose which pictures to link to without making some people feel left out?

You could start your own blog post doing all the styles yourself and turn commenting off. I'm down to the last irritating styles on my to-do list. (https://forums.longhaircommunity.com/entry.php?b=136922)


I'm not dismissing the idea out of hand. I'd be delighted to hear simple solutions I've not thought of or cheer someone on in attempting to create such a thing!



My solution to providing as much access to pictures with the least fuss (and characters per post, and respecting privacy) was to provide up to four links per style: Text description, Style of the Month, Video, and Topic specific thread. We are slowly (one month at a time) making our way through the styles via the Style of the Month threads, and people can and do dig up old Style threads and add new pictures to them.

If there isn't a video link, make a video, or plead with our video making members to make one for us. If there is a specific thread for a style that was missed, bring it to the mods attention, and it will get added.



2) Here you go!


Chain link braid -> Hawser Braid
Basic Braid -> English Braid and Dianyla Braid
Bunches -> Pigtails
Canerows -> Cornrow Braids
Cinnabun -> Cinnamon Bun
Combination Braids -> Battle Braid
Equilibrium Bun -> Treble Clef Bun
Faux Crown Braid -> Coronet Braid
French Pinless Braided Bun -> Jamie Leigh braided bun
Gibson Roll -> Twist
Herringbone Braid -> Fishtail Braid
KL Wrapped Bun -> Pha Bun
Mexican Revolution Buns -> Princess Leia
Milkmaid Braids -> Heidi Braids
Moezland Bun -> Seashell Bun
Orchid Wrap Bun -> Pha Bun
Pinles Braided Bun -> Center-held Braided Bun
Tri-Coil Bun -> Off Coil Bun



I'm sure there are errors and omissions. Help needed!

I thought treble clef bun was done kind of like a cinnabun with one twist of an outer loop to create the top of the treble clef, whereas an equilibrium bun is done as a cinnabun but with the hair folded back on itself to start with?

Nice idea for a picture thread and interesting points. If there were a picture thread collating them all, perhaps it could be specified only to use certain hosting sites (e.g. imgur tends to delete them after a while of inactivity whereas somewhere like Flickr seems to last indefinitely) and to provide a link in case the picture disappears but is still hosted?

Whereas Nightshade's description of "a cinnamon bun with the length folded and twisted before it is coiled against the back of the head" for the equilibrium is very different.
