View Full Version : What is your "default" style?

August 31st, 2009, 04:18 AM
What style do you end up wearing when you're thinking about things other than hair? :p

August 31st, 2009, 04:25 AM
If a loose ponytail pulled half way through can be considered a style, that that would be it. If I want to put a tad more effort into it, a quick topsy tail.

August 31st, 2009, 04:39 AM
An english braid or two, depending on what I have to do. My buns never stay in place so if I don't want to think about hair my only choice is this :D Even if I hate how wavy my hair becomes after braiding it.

August 31st, 2009, 04:45 AM
A loose cinnamon bun held with a Ficcare.

August 31st, 2009, 04:46 AM
An orchid or figure 8 bun worn every day. Okay, I took it down Saturday for a few hours....

August 31st, 2009, 04:50 AM
A French twist, secured with some kind of claw clip.

August 31st, 2009, 04:50 AM
simple twist-up bun held with a Scrunchie (I know! I know! I'm sorry, remember, I'm new to all of this! lol) Now I've got my Flexi-8s, hopefully this will change soon.

August 31st, 2009, 04:55 AM
Equilibrium bun for me!
Segmented ponytail or simple braid for workouts and rope jumping.

August 31st, 2009, 04:58 AM
A bad fig 8 with a 60th St three prong fork is my everyday style.

August 31st, 2009, 05:06 AM
Heh, before coming here my default style was a tight and high pony-tail. Now I'm more likely to put it up in a cinnamon bun with a chopstick or two.

August 31st, 2009, 05:14 AM
Mine is simple braid as a default style, keeps my layers out of my face.

August 31st, 2009, 05:15 AM
A sock bun, just recently. A single plait for the longest time.

August 31st, 2009, 05:37 AM
French braid :) Sometimes even a simple cinnamon bun won't work, so I like a french braid the most

August 31st, 2009, 05:40 AM
My default style is a messy bun held up with a hair stick.

August 31st, 2009, 05:56 AM
Cinnamon bun with Ficcare to hold it there. I wear it to work so it's my most used hairstyle because of that.

August 31st, 2009, 05:58 AM
Good topic! I do a very badly done cinnamon bun held with whatever is in reach a lot of the time. The halfway pulled through ponytail is another. Lately I've been getting more nape tangles with that style.

August 31st, 2009, 06:16 AM
Oh, I forgot to mention: mine is the lazy wrap. I can even do this style whilst walking :)

August 31st, 2009, 06:21 AM
Nautilus bun held with a hairstick (most often Ketylo) or two.

August 31st, 2009, 06:21 AM
A simple braid or a French twist - still have too many different length layers and too poor skills to do something nice :(

August 31st, 2009, 06:23 AM
before I found this board it was just a cinnabun. Now I can choose--lazy wrap (can also do it while walking/talking/other stuff), karen Lynn bun, and If I really need it out of the way all day it goes in a braided bun held with a fork or sticks.:)

August 31st, 2009, 06:28 AM
Currently, a cinnabun held with a Ficcare. This style changes, though. In a few months, it'll probably be different.

What's a lazy wrap..?

August 31st, 2009, 06:28 AM
Lazy wrap or figure eight, held with whatever's available ;-)

August 31st, 2009, 06:29 AM
Boring old pony tail. But the main objective is that it's out of my face.

August 31st, 2009, 06:54 AM
Something I call the bird's nest bun. It's sort of like a cinnabun except I don't twist my hair, and I have to pull the middle coil outward over the outer coils. I'll try to remember to post a picture later.

August 31st, 2009, 06:58 AM
My default style is a messy bun held up with a hair stick.

Same here. If I'll be wearing a hat for a good portion of the day, it may switch to twin braids or ponytails, worn low. For sleep, either single braid or scrunchie bun.

August 31st, 2009, 07:34 AM
What's a lazy wrap..?

Here (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/vbjournal.php?do=article&articleid=72) it is :)

August 31st, 2009, 07:36 AM
What I wear everyday. I have my hair either down and straight and parted in the middle, or neatly brushed back into a ponytail.

August 31st, 2009, 08:02 AM
A plain English braid. Sometimes lately I have been doing a high messy bun held with little claw clips.

August 31st, 2009, 08:10 AM
a low cinnabun held with a ficcare.

August 31st, 2009, 08:14 AM
For school/work days, it's a nautilus bun on a stick. The rest of the time, I default to an english braid.

August 31st, 2009, 08:15 AM
bun of some sort/french twist held with a stick or ficcare

August 31st, 2009, 08:26 AM
My quick, don't need to think about it style is a French braid if I need to leave the house, otherwise it's some sort of half cinnabun, half beebut with not much twisting

August 31st, 2009, 08:33 AM
I alternate between an infinity bun and Spidermom's bun that stays, depending on what hairtoy I have on hand. I also wear my hair down a lot.

August 31st, 2009, 09:47 AM
I don't really have a lot of time on any day to think about hair stuff, LOL. I have too many kids. :p Most days I just do a ponytail, then braid it and bun it with my black karma clip. Or I'll do a simple cinnabun with a hairstick or two. Those styles seem to stay put better than most others, so I come back to them often when I'm being a busy mom. :)

August 31st, 2009, 09:48 AM
My :) JJJ Pretzel Bun (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElSCHnzYtM8) or a :) Comfy Cinnamon Bun (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OZEDOMF5ek).
They are quick,secure and comfy for everyday!

August 31st, 2009, 09:56 AM
A simple ponytail.

August 31st, 2009, 10:13 AM
My sig pic is definitely my default style since it requires no heat and takes about ten seconds.

August 31st, 2009, 10:13 AM
I tend to leave my hair down and french braid one side near the front, that way its easy but still looks a little fancy ;)

August 31st, 2009, 10:21 AM
Usually I just pull the top back to keep it out of my face if I am doing something. That's all for now as I am maybe almost APL.

August 31st, 2009, 10:28 AM
One (English) braid down my back. I wear this pretty much every day.

August 31st, 2009, 10:32 AM
I generally wear an infinity bun, a loose cinnabon, fastened with a hair stick or a nape braid.

Carrie Ingalls
August 31st, 2009, 10:36 AM
Up. :) Since May it has been a log roll and before that it was an "inside out bun" (I think that is what it's called.)

August 31st, 2009, 10:42 AM
Lazy wrap, or a twisted lazy wrap. Or the one where you twist the hair around the hair stick and then insert the stick down. Can't remember what its called.

August 31st, 2009, 10:50 AM
I French or Dutch braid my hair in a diagonal (from the top of my head on one side, down to the nape of my neck on the opposite side) and then put the tail into a braided bun. I hold this with a different stick or fork each day and swap which side the bun is on.

Eden Iris
August 31st, 2009, 10:51 AM
Cinnamon or equilibrium bun.

August 31st, 2009, 11:08 AM
A ponytail under a baseball cap or I leave it in my sleep braid. :D

August 31st, 2009, 11:08 AM
a high messy bun :)

August 31st, 2009, 11:12 AM
A low ponytail with a scrunchie. Buns make my scalp ache from the hair being held in the wrong direction, so I only wear them when I really want the hair off my neck.

August 31st, 2009, 11:13 AM
A non-cinnamon cinnabun. Mine's not flat, because if I make it flat, all the layers pop out. So it's more a turd-like thing.

August 31st, 2009, 11:25 AM
A low ponytail not entirely pulled through.

August 31st, 2009, 11:25 AM
Cinnamon bun or a plain braid

August 31st, 2009, 11:31 AM
Spidermom's bun that stays, held with any small, 2-pronged fork. It takes mere seconds to put up and lasts all day if needed.

August 31st, 2009, 11:41 AM
When I leave the house, it's almost always a braid. At home, I wear it loose most often.

August 31st, 2009, 11:43 AM
I always wear an english braid. But, this winter, I really wanna try buns on a daily basis. First off because I want to stop thinking about the lenght for a while and let it grow, and then I think it may be more protective to the lenght...

August 31st, 2009, 11:43 AM
Hmm I think it's either a braid or a braided bun. I'm getting kind of sick of braids but anything other doesn't stay put. :(

August 31st, 2009, 12:22 PM
A French roll, lazy bun. They work great while multitasking.

August 31st, 2009, 01:06 PM
I wear my hair down 99% of the time, so it shocks people when I put it up :P

August 31st, 2009, 02:19 PM
Either a half-up with a faux flexi or a lazy wrap.

August 31st, 2009, 02:32 PM
Pinless braided bun with my Ketylos stick. One of the only buns that doesn't give me a headache if I wear it all day.

August 31st, 2009, 04:01 PM
Just a plain braid. Maybe two braids.
I'm hoping I can branch out into more styles over the next year!

August 31st, 2009, 04:03 PM
Here (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/vbjournal.php?do=article&articleid=72) it is :)

Ah, thank you!

August 31st, 2009, 04:08 PM
Two little loops with tassels, one behind each ear, held with Flexis, or a cinnabun, in both cases with a tiny Flexi at each temple to keep loose hair out of my face.

August 31st, 2009, 04:54 PM
In public: down. At home: in a high braid ponytail.

August 31st, 2009, 05:25 PM
Either a cinnabun or a lazy wrap bun. Usually held with either ketylos or a ficcare.

August 31st, 2009, 05:26 PM
It was a cinnamon bun with two sticks until I learned the lazy wrap bun. Now I'm lazier with one stick. :)

August 31st, 2009, 05:30 PM
Thanks for that lazy wrap video - great, so helpful!

August 31st, 2009, 06:00 PM
Either a cinnabun or a braid.

August 31st, 2009, 06:01 PM
Tight low ponytail. This is what I wear daily. I'd love to start experimenting with other things, but I realized when I did another bun I recently discovered, since I bike to school my helmet runs into most buns. :( I'll figure out something eventually, I guess.

August 31st, 2009, 06:14 PM
I do a nautilus bun or a lazy wrap bun, with 1 or 2 sticks. Lately mostly nautilus, because it holds forever!

August 31st, 2009, 06:17 PM

August 31st, 2009, 06:20 PM
Either down or in a sloppy cinnamon bun with a Ketylo. I really need to mix it up a little!

August 31st, 2009, 06:45 PM
Cinnabun with a stick or a pair of sticks. I've gotten better about variety, but this is still my go-to style when I'm distracted, busy, or rushed.

ETA: Actually, this was originally the result of my deciding to branch out and vary my hair styles. For a long time, all I ever wore was the figure eight bun, but that was before I came here, and before I even knew that it had a name. Now it looks like I'm in a "cinnabun rut."

August 31st, 2009, 07:01 PM
A dorky, messy, bun-wanna-be w/ a scrunchie... please don't kick me out.... :D

August 31st, 2009, 07:12 PM
Lazy wrap bun or a braided cinnabun.

August 31st, 2009, 08:17 PM
i usually end up with a lazy bun. Except now i wrap it a few more times haha. Well sometimes when i have the time (rarely cuz I'm always rushed to get ready) i do a Chinese braided bun. minus the hair tye of course :P
It seems like these are my own 2 styles as of lately. i might try another like an infinity bun or this bun you twist around and put two fingers to make a loop and pull the loop down..but often its the lazy bun. it doesn't hurt if left in too long like that loop bun (most of the time) its quick and i like the way it looks. i really needa learn some new styles :P

August 31st, 2009, 08:21 PM
A messy cinnabun secured with an old homemade hairstick, or a loose ponytail held by a scrunchy. (I love the scrunchy! It's a cheery plaid, was made for me by a dear friend, and doesn't poke into my head or neck.)

August 31st, 2009, 08:23 PM
Down.... 98% of the time. I don't really like the way I look with my hair up. >_> I know I should start wearing it in a bun so I don't damage it so much but meh....

August 31st, 2009, 08:25 PM
Braid or half down. It's actually less effort to keep a half do looking decent than a full updo, for some reason.

Botticelli Gold
August 31st, 2009, 08:27 PM
I tend to wear a high ponytail, or a variation of that where I don't pull the hair all the way through, the final time through the hair tie. Kind of like a long loop with the ends hanging down. Does that make sense? lol!

August 31st, 2009, 08:58 PM
Either a french braid (if I'm working, because I have to wear a helmet and therefore can't really have it "up") or in a sort of knot-bun-thing held with a hair stick. I've been trying to branch out more lately, but nothing else wants to stay as well as my knot-thing!

August 31st, 2009, 10:40 PM
On a bad hair day, either a braided cinnabun or a braided nautilus (which I may have spelt wrong...). On a good day, a small half up, ie. just the bits at the front rather than the entire top half.

August 31st, 2009, 10:56 PM
a simple braid for home, a bun or braided bun for work.

August 31st, 2009, 11:19 PM
Usually a bee-butt bun.:)

September 1st, 2009, 12:20 AM
Loose. Everyday. :)

Actually, I had never considered (prior to joining LHC) that I could wear my hair in anything other than the default hairstyle. Maybe another year or two on the board and I would have acquired a non-default hairstyle. :D

September 1st, 2009, 09:25 AM
Cinnamon bun secured with Ketylo hairstick(s), 60th Street fork or Ficcare. I try to rotate my styles but I think I wear cinnamon bun about 80 % of the time. I seem to forget all the others when I'm busy...:rolleyes:

September 1st, 2009, 09:32 AM
Mostly I do a cinnabun when Im in a rush but I seem to be doing a lazy wrap more and more too.

September 1st, 2009, 10:19 AM
It's been an English braid, either hanging down or clipped up like this (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/album.php?albumid=3722&pictureid=48318). But I joined LHC to learn new styles (and the forum is filled with hairtoy enablers ;)) so I'm hoping to start using buns more :)

September 1st, 2009, 10:59 AM
nautilus :p that's just the bun I can do fast and stays in for long :)

September 1st, 2009, 11:37 AM
Logroll or twist.

I also tend to just keep it in my cap when I am at home and I am not going anywhere

September 1st, 2009, 11:53 AM
The style I go to most often is a bunned braid held with some mini claw clips. It holds well more often than not, especially when it's not done on wet hair (hair dries, it pulls). It gets a lot of use.

September 1st, 2009, 12:28 PM
A flip bun. In the evening sometimes I'll let it down and braid it loosely down my back.

September 1st, 2009, 12:49 PM
Cinnabun with a scrunchie/hair stick or whatever is around. My other default is a figure 8 bun.

September 1st, 2009, 12:52 PM
Gibraltar bun with a Ficarre. Requires no thought whatsoever.

September 1st, 2009, 12:58 PM
A low ponytail, because my hair is still fairly short.

September 1st, 2009, 03:14 PM
A locked bee butt bun, fig 8, English braid or braided bun. But it really just depends on whats going on during the week.

September 1st, 2009, 06:00 PM
My hair is almost always in a ponytail. If I go out somewhere I usually think about it, and put it up in an EZ Comb.

September 1st, 2009, 06:07 PM
Any very quick bun, often with a black scrunchee. People laugh at these but I don't mind them. They're soft and gentle on my hair.

September 1st, 2009, 06:25 PM
Gibraltar bun with a Ficarre. Requires no thought whatsoever.
<high five!>
Except I don't always use a Ficcare, I use sticks and forks and whatever is handy and will hold it.

September 1st, 2009, 06:28 PM
I usually just wear my hair down since it like it best that way :). Although, when I have it up, it's either a lazy wrap bun + hairstick, or cinnabun with a fakkare.

September 1st, 2009, 06:34 PM
I usually wear a low pony, or a ballerina type bun or a plain braid. I think I might be approaching 'too thick for ficcare' length.

September 1st, 2009, 06:57 PM
A lazy wrap bun with one or two sticks.

September 1st, 2009, 07:30 PM
A french braid, which usually ends up pinned or sticked into a bun. I prefer two french braids, but it takes longer, so my usual go-to-work style is just one.

September 1st, 2009, 07:44 PM
it's not really a style, but I wear a single english braid in the back most of the time.

September 1st, 2009, 07:53 PM
Lately it's been a mishmash of english/french braiding. My hair is at that awkward length where I can't do a decent bun, but a simple peacock-style twist always looks sloppy. I badly need a trim, but I'm trying to put it off so I just throw my hair into a braid and ignore it...

September 1st, 2009, 07:58 PM
cinnabun with a stick... although I've been riding my bike more and recently decided to risk my life less by wearing a helmet, so for the last week or so an english braid has been my usual.

September 1st, 2009, 08:00 PM
A messy bun.

September 1st, 2009, 10:28 PM
Loose cinnamon bun or lazy wrap bun held with my 4prong haircomb.

September 1st, 2009, 10:32 PM
Messy bun, usually secured with a stick.

September 1st, 2009, 10:43 PM
pony tail should do segs though

September 2nd, 2009, 01:44 AM
Hair down or just a ponytail.

April 20th, 2013, 03:23 PM
High ponytail.

April 20th, 2013, 03:36 PM
Either loose or a cinnamon bun.

When it was a bit shorter, I loved a gibson tuck or messy french twist with the ends sticking out the top.

April 20th, 2013, 03:41 PM
Lazy Wrap Bun, or English braid.

April 20th, 2013, 03:41 PM
For days when I'm just dossing about the house, a cinnabun held with a jaw clip. Otherwise, I'll wear it loose on occasion, or in a rope braided vortex bun, which is my favourite bun!

April 20th, 2013, 04:16 PM
Pinless braided bun, usually with an extra stick to secure it, or just a braid secured with a fork or two sticks.

April 20th, 2013, 04:21 PM
High ponytail. I know it's damaging, but it's very flattering, easy & quick. :)

April 20th, 2013, 05:31 PM
nautilus or equilibrium bun at my current length.

April 20th, 2013, 06:14 PM
Low pony tail, sad, sad, sad, but true, even sadder, because my husband hates the style, lol.

April 20th, 2013, 07:19 PM
Dutch braid has been my everyday for more than a year now.

April 20th, 2013, 07:39 PM
Loose and fluffy, with sunglasses propped on top to keep it from flopping over in my face too much. Second is a side braid coming over either shoulder.

April 21st, 2013, 04:28 AM
Usually down or in a quick bun with a fork. Ponytail at home.

April 21st, 2013, 06:43 AM
Mine is a cinnamon bun held with two jaw clips, or a single dutch braid.

April 21st, 2013, 06:48 AM
Single English braid or cinnabun.

Now that I can do a nautilus and hold it in place with a pencil, I've been wearing it a lot (I need pins for my cinnabun, so 1 pencil is a huge time improvement over 10 pins and a couple of scrunchies).

April 21st, 2013, 07:02 AM
Pencil bun. It's just automatic now, I'd have to look around youtube to remind myself how to make any other kind of bun. It seems to suit my length to a T these days.

April 21st, 2013, 07:13 AM
If it's cold enough to need a hat and I know I have to go outside at some point during the day, then I wear a cinnabun. Otherwise I usually go for a nautilus.

April 21st, 2013, 07:45 AM
Single Dutch braid or a pencil bun

April 21st, 2013, 07:50 AM
Recently i have been living in nautilus bun's but i dont want to get any damage from the twisted part so even now and than i do a braided bun usually with a ficcare as it holds the best for me.

April 21st, 2013, 11:18 AM
It changes. Maybe it's because I am new to having hair that's actually long enough to put up in several ways and I get new alternatives all the time because it's growing more. For some months it was spin pins. Before that it was a peacock twist with a comb. Now it's high ponytail but now I feel like gibson tuck could be the next one...

When my hair was longer I used to wear it in lazy wrap bun all the time.

April 23rd, 2013, 02:25 PM
Either a low ponytail with a scrunchie (quick, easy and very comfortable) or a nautilus (quick, easy, less in the way, not always quite as comfortable.) I don't like how I look in either of these though so most of the time this is an at home style. :)

Another go-to style if I want to forget about my hair for a while is a ponied two-strand cinnamon bun held with amish pins or spin pins. That sucker will stay for DAYS.
