    Default Is there a non-lazy wrap?

    Lazy wrap just sounds like it's the easier way of doing another kind of wrap bun, just as Trolleypup does a lazy 8 instead of a figure-eight. So, was there an original wrap bun and I missed it? My google-fu fails me today. Is there a picture somewhere? Thanks.

    I've been wondering about this for years. Thank you for posing the question!

    From what I understand, there is no single wrap bun that the lazy wrap is a version of. There's a family of wrap buns, and they include the lazy wrap, nautilus, artemis, and gibraltar. I made a thread a while ago essentially asking what the difference was between a nautilus and a lazy wrap (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/...d.php?t=117289), and got some good general comments about wrap buns. Here's two:

    ETA: HELLO SPIRALS! Sorry I posted this same comment to you once before on another thread... I didn't look at the name...

    Thank you. I was hoping for a nautilus that doesn't stick out in the middle as much. I guess it just depends on how you wrap and hair length.

    I'm glad you reminded me. I had forgotten about that.

    Here's a lazy wrap where the middle doesn't stick out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iG9PPb8gCsI

    ETA: Just realized you were looking for a nautilus, not a lazy wrap... I'll just be over here.

    Exactly. Amazing how different the same bun can look on different hair/different lengths, isn't it?

    I'll try a lazy if it looks right. I don't know why that little bump bothers me. Ha--I feel like this is less a thread than profile messages. Ah well, if someone learns something....

    I find I get less bumb putting the stick in the other direction. As in I hold my hair in my left hand and put the stick from left to right. I'm planning to do a bunch of vids tomorrow and I'll experiment and report back but it's so difficult to tell what a style will do with your hair without trying it yourself!

    Looking at the vid, I just realized that I've been doing the LWB wrong. I was wrapping it around my first two fingers, and then my thumb, and then wrap the rest around the base. It kind of looked like a figure 8, or at least felt that way. This was a better vid than the one I watched it on first. So now I have the LWB, and my variation. Always nice to have a new bun.
