    It's an older picture.
    I used Gossamer's tutorial.

    I've been doing a baby helix (I've been calling it a cinnawrap) for a while now, and didn't know it! Here are some pics from 4 months back with 26.5"/BSL hair. Once I get the chance, I'll post a fresh pic (plus mayhaps a photo tutorial if you're interested) for this month as I've got a few more cms on these.



    And here's a hurried updo shot showing where the tail ends up (top left) before it's slid under that side bit and tucked away.



    ETA: Bonus shot I found when editing out PB pic links.

    Ooh I'm excited for this one! I just learned to do helix buns not that long ago (though I have about a 30% success rate--I think I need more hair!). I'll try a couple and post if I get a good one!

    This bun made me almost shave my head the other day. lol. I have tried so many times to do this, and I don't know if it's my fine and thin hair, compounded with the length...but it's just not possible. It just looked like a twisted, knotted noodle on my head...not a beautiful helix.

    I've been trying and trying to do this bun also. No dice. Hair's just way too short.
    I even tried it as a half up and I still can't make it happen. I'll have to live vicariously through the pretty buns on this thread.

    Crystawni, yours looks so cute!
    Especially with the acrylic hairstick.

    Gorgeous, everyone! I love the helix bun, it's so elegant. I had to give it a try even though I thought my hair was way too short for this one, but it's actually long enough. It's super comfortable too, which says a lot because most buns are at least slightly uncomfortable for me nowadays (sensitive scalp + heavy hair = not a good combo). I'll try to get a picture tomorrow
