    Yay for historical hair styles! In some picture tutorials it seems they start off with a rope braid and then tie off into a knot.

    It's really hard to see what you are doing. Half the image is out of frame + needs better lighting. Could you re-do?

    It looks similar to a brioche bun, except the loop you pull through is smaller and the tail isn't pulled through all the way. If that makes sense, maybe you could find a good brioche bun tutorial and adapt it?

    This knot has baffled me for a long time. I still can't figure it out. I have tried it so many times and it comes out different each time. I should post pics, but they really should be posted to hairstyle fails thread ha!
    Eta: I think this style is well suited for thin hair, if you look at the bog bodies, their hair was thin.

    I tried it and had no trouble with the video. My problem is personal. I have iii hair and small hands. It makes the step where you pull the hair through really hard to do. I got it to work, but it is a mess. I am going to give it another go later. Hopefully that one will look better because I really like the potential here. It is kind of like having a fake short pony again!

    If you click the title of the video it takes you to YouTube and you should be able to see the whole screen. The forum sometimes cuts the picture for me as well.

    I think it's a lovely and clear tutorial, thank you Sarahlabyrinth!

    Thanks I agree that the lighting isn't the best though.

    Nice tutorial! It is very clear and easy to understand, and your hair is lovely, Sarahlabyrinth!

    I gave this a try and can just barely pull through a little loop. It isn't worth pinning or taking a picture. Oh wait - the tail just flopped all the way through. Now I just have a knot with a tiny tail.

    Can anyone make sense of the "braid method" described on the linked Wikipedia article?

    The hairs are divided at the back in two uniform strands, slicked and laid in opposite directions around the head. On one side of the head, usually in the temporal region, the two strands are individually tightened in the same direction. The two strands are then twisted, whereby the rotation of the two individual strands loosens somewhat. A loop is formed from the resulting braid and the excess braid end is put in a loop through the loop. By natural untwisting the resulting knot tightens and stops without further aids.
    Does the brain control you, or are you controlling the brain?
