    Default The (tentative) Bun and Braid Reference Thread!

    UPDATE: The contents of this thread contributed to the LHC Hairstyle Thesaurus now stickied in the Mane Forum.


    Alrighty! As referenced here, I'm attempting to cobble together a picture-referenced list of styles, buns and braids, almost like a database, if you will.
    I'd like to point out that the frankly thudworthy list below is the work of neko_kawaii- I bow to her hero-level list skills.

    What I'd really love to do is to be able to get a picture for every style, and a tutorial to go along with them. Obviously neko has done a massive amount of the work, so I'll be updating this post shortly with a running list of styles for which I need to dig up tutorials and/or pictures. Hopefully this will be something to which we can all contribute, and a great reference for anyone looking!

    At the moment, I'm looking for pictures for practically every style, so if you have a picture you wouldn't mind being used on this guide, please let me know!

    Hi Sylvestrix and Neko kawaii. Thanks for this awesome list. I've been needing something like this for ages and hadn't made the time to do it myself

    Just an update - the link for the Nautilus Bun from TorrinPaige doesn't work, this is where it is:

    Here's a photo for cameo bun. http://i.imgur.com/vN9VOBD.jpg

    I searched youtube and there really doesn't seem to be a good tutorial, so once my hair's dry maybe I'll make one.

    Cameo bun tutorial, if you think it's good enough for inclusion. If not, I'll understand. So many technological frustrations trying to get the darn thing filmed!

    The link to the lazy wrap bun isn't what I know to be a lazy wrap bun?

    I agree, that's just a cinnabun secured with an elastic. Here's a link to a different LWB tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTt771qkO24
