A regular French twist doesn't work for you?

Try the log roll! :)

Or better still, instructions with photos instead of video! Some of us do better at our own pace :rolleyes:

Bunzfan, I found this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kk9GF6Xbb2M) tutorial on youtube for a "modified" log roll. Supposedly it will work with waist length hair. But I tried it and it feels like I just don't have enough length for it. You can give it a try and see if you have better success, but I think you and I have to wait for longer hair to be able to do this.

I am just past waist and tried this. I did not get an elegant roll - I have that to look forward to when I have more hair - but I did get a bun that looks like I have much more hair than I do! a bit of a messy bun as my tails just can't quite make it in.

Thanks, daeana! I really like the upside-down version!

You can also fix it with a hairstick. You have to weave it trough the logroll itself and through the hair on the backof your head.
Looks a bit like a fat caterpillar. :)

HairStickler, i could NOT get the regular version to work on my head at all, but the upside-down one worked on the first try. i figure others may have the same issue. :)

Mai Gloeckchen, that looks awesome!! i've also been able to use a hairstick to hold mine, but i stick it horizontally through the loop. it's amazingly secure.

and my other contribution to the thread is my sig. ;)

Does this one make curls? I don't usually do log rolls but from the way they're made it seems this updo would make some lovely curls.

^ I do this version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7XKBUtl7O0) since my hair's a bit shorter (I could do it at BSL). It gives me really nice bedhead waves.

I do my hair in a roll but I don't know if it's a log roll or a French roll.
I can't tell from the tutorials what the difference is. Here's my roll. There's another one - left avatar pic. Is it a French roll or a log roll?

I haven't been able to do a French twist since BSL and had totally forgotten this version of it! Here's mine with almost TB length hair:

So I don't own any sticks or forks, or flexi 8's (yet) and I tried to secure the upside down log roll with hairpins (regular as I don't have any Amish yet either) and it did not work at all, lol!

Man I need some hair toys! :p

Here are a few pictures of my hair in log rolls, or as Bunnyhare suggested I call them "Sequoia Rolls":

May 2009, the log roll is being secured by some bunheads hairpins. Note: my hair is very heavily oiled in this and the next picture.

May 2009, side view, secured with bunheads hairpins. Heavily oiled.

Fall 2009, trying it with a Ficcare. I'm pretty sure my hair is oiled here also.

And now for a varriation: July 09: I think this was a partial log roll with the rest of the hair pulled through the top loop. It is oiled and I am wearing my pretty Buff.

Log rolls were my go to hair style in the summers of 2009 and 2010. I wore it basically every single day and usually had it completely covered and tucked under a uv Buff to keep it out of the sun.

Carrie Ingalls, those photos are AMAZING! I'm going to have to try this style again now that you've inspired me!

I love this style but I can't get it to work. :(
I have also tried the upside down version but my ends just unravel no matter what I do...

My hemline is U-shaped with shorter layers in the front. Is this relevant?
I know some hairstyles hold better with fairy-tale ends but still... :rolleyes:

Carrie Ingalls That log roll is so big is lovely!

I've done log rolls before with varying degrees of sucess, but I find that they start to pull on the crown hair that I attach them to.

hmm... i'd suggest trying a shorter roll section before wrapping. when i'm wrapping and get to the bottom of my roll, i usually wrap a couple more times around in the same spot before i run out of ends, and the clip goes almost right over that, so that helps a lot. hopefully some part of this made sense... :p

Yes, it's very clear, thank you. :flower:

I will try to use a shorter section as the base of the roll and report back. :D

I have layered BSL hair so I'm not able to do a "real" log roll. I just did the first twist of the log roll and secured it with bobby pins. The result is my avatar. I'm going to try some of the variations here for the rest of the month! :)

I've tried this hairstyle. I can't wrap my hair around the main piece since it's not long enough (anymore). But the part I can do does make an interesting bun - I even received a compliment on it. :)

Darned it, those instructions left me at step 1


Step 1: hold detangled hair at the nape as if creating a low ponytail.

The only time my hair is detangled is when it is soaking wet. I want to try all these beautiful styles so badly.

I've tried this several times but I think my hair just ain't long enough yet, even with the modified versions. I am in awe of this style though and I live for the day when I can wear it!

You should try it even if your hair is not detangled and see how it looks. I have been surprised sometimes at how well different updos turn out even when I haven't been able to detangle before hand. In some cases the look is just a bit different, more 'messy' and casual.

My hair is mid-butt, closer to classic. I've spent an hour trying to make this work with tutorials. After the twist my hair only wraps around it once and it is loose so it pulls the hairs in the front of my head tight holding the weight of the style. I'll give it another shot when I get a few more inches of hair. I didn't have enough to stuff through the loop so it just unraveled. Only thing I can guess is my hair is too thick.

I gave it a go and it turned out ok, the only thing I don't like is the fact that it makes my old dye so noticeable, the roll looks stuck on because it's so red compared to my virgin hair. I need to get myself a ficcare to do these sorts of styles. At the moment I have a chop stick jammed in there and it doesn't look as nice to me.

Necro thread! :cheese:

I recently learned this from eresh's tutorial and love that it's so different from all the other buns that anchor in the same place on my head, but I just cannot seem to get the top loop neat at all :confused: any tips?

[Side note: I can't do it with my Ficcare, but a Large flexi is perfect - maybe the upside-down one would be skinny enough for my Ficcare, or perhaps I just need a clip style that's not a maximas.]

Hmmmm... I don't do it quite the way eresh does, but I'm not sure where I learned the way I do it. I'll peruse the internets and see if I can find a video.

ETA: I do it basically like SarahLabyrinth (https://youtu.be/yJobxzOAXqs) but I don't spread the loop. I like to keep the top loop small and contained.
