View Full Version : Favorite hair styles!

: D

I want to see your favorite hairstyles (that you can do already), be they pigtails or braids, buns, or just plain down, I wanna see 'em. So now you can showcase them here.

(I did a quick search to see if there were any similar threads, but I couldn't find one. o-o Which I find odd. In any case, if it's a repeat, I'm sorry. XD)

This is mine (or was for a while, rather):


It's just a pony with a side part and my version of a fingerwave. It's done when the hair is wet (the only time, sadly, that I can really put my hair up). Lately I've liked just wearing it down though, because sometimes it makes me look funny in my opinion. xD

I usually either have my hair down, in a doubled-over ponytail (though that proves to be tangle-inducing now due to how long my hair is), a boring bun, a single braid, double braids, or double dutch braids.

Fun pigtails! Yay! LOL.

My standard "down" look:

Here you can see more of the length:

Hmm... I would like to put some of these in my siggy, but since we can't use the [img thing anymore I don't know how.

My favorite style (because it's quick, easy, and pretty): Cinnabun with small clips
That's the style I wear most of the time. The rest involve some planning.

Figure 8:

Braided Pigtails:

Braided Chinese Bun:

I also really love the chinese bun, but I have to rework it every couple of months for new growth.

And I recently figured out the dutch braid which is amazing:

GlassEyes - that look is very 50s retro ala West Side Story. Awesome!

Ajoifulnoise - your hair is so shiny! How do you do that Chinese bun? I don't know if I'd have the patience for that, or if it would hold for that matter.

Thank you. It doesn't take that long. I just got enough length to do it. It took so long because my hair is thick. This video helped me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIrULTh_5DI .

ETA: of course, my ends don't stay so I have to pin them in place.

My favorite style is down and loose. It's just so easy. Does that count? :) I don't have a recent picture. Will post one soon.

I love halfups and my favourite halfup is this 3-3 combination halfup.

The only thing I can do is put a hairstick or fork or Ficcare in a bun, or let it loose, or in a pony, but everyday I bun it, this is about 6 or more months ago but its how I have it every day!!

The braided bun. It looks fancy without being hard to do.

My everyday go-to is the Equilibrium Bun (http://chatter.thebeautybottle.com/showthread.php?t=1605)(article should be up on LHC as soon as it has mod approval) :

The pinless braided bun is my alltime favorite.
Fast, stays put all day, comfortable and it looks pretty :-)

That would definitely be my 10sec quick bun. I wear that every day, only the toys change.

April 4th, 2008, 07:20 PM
My current quickest is Orchid Bun. Love it. Takes only a minute to put it up, and it stays all day. :)

I also love the Equilibrium Bun, I'm glad Nightshade gave it a name, I've loved it for years!

I love to wear my hair down, but my favorite "out of my face" style right now is a herringbone braid. I just learned it this week, but I've worn it 3 times since then. It's the perfect braid--fancy, stays put perfectly even with my layers, doesn't take forever, I can do it wet, and I just love the way it looks in my hair.

Here's my first attempt:


This one's little crooked and I like to start it just a bit higher now that I'm more comfortable with it, but that's basically the braid.

Up and out of the way. 2 braids are my current favorite even though I feel like a 5 year old. It breaks up the bulk of the single braid yet keeps the hair contained. I also seem to like to pull my hair back in a pony tail and braid that. It's actually how I learned how to do nice tight braids.

I use to love figure 8 buns and infinity buns but I can't seem to get buns to work with hair sticks right now. I'm in another phase where old techniques no longer work with my current length.

My favorite is braid ,but I like to braid after I secure the upper half of my hair with a barret.

April 5th, 2008, 07:12 AM
My hair is up everyday, and I rotate about 15 different buns. They are all my favorites; however, the log roll is probably the fastest to make and turns out perfect on every try.

I usually wear my hair in a French braid or the 10 sec. bun, but I love the infinity bun and am trying to do it better.. looks very elegant!

April 5th, 2008, 08:55 AM
All-time favorite (and newly discovered):
- Cinnabun flipped up with a stick

Everyday/easy - and therefore favorites:
- Regular cinnabun with a fork/stick
- Logroll/KL knot with a max
- Non-braided victorian updo

- A favorite that I hardly ever practice because of my taper and missing length is a single braid.. Once I reach classic I'll wear that one a lot more..

April 5th, 2008, 11:55 AM
Most the time i wear a figur 8 bun. Sometimes an infinity bun.

I love wearing mine curled and half up.http://entertainment.webshots.com/photo/2774370320052903735DCdiAn

Fun! Here's some of mine:

My favourite style right now is a single braid down my back. Nothing else is working at the moment; my hair is too slippery for everything when dry.

I don't have pictures, nor do I have any specific styles in mind, but I really like certain braided updos.
