    Default May 2016 - Gibralter Bun

    So, I totally misunderstood what Hypnotica was doing in this video when I first watched it years ago. (I'll show you what I was doing instead in a week or so.) Is this essentially the same as a Nautilus? Discuss.



    Schmetterlinchen also has a video of this with better lighting - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxDRAEkbpV4 - where the similarities in construction to a Nautilus are more visible, at least to me.

    I think it's essentially the same as Twisted LWB : (by Haartraum) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsQlSwyEeQg
    I think if you just twist it like a cinnabun but wrap it like a LWB, that's Gibraltar, no?

    Yay, my favorite bun.

    I think it's flatter than a nautilus, no? Construction-wise, it seems more like a cinnabun than a nautilus. Maybe it's what you get when a cinnabun and a nautilus love each other very much....

    To me, it's a cinnamon bun with the innermost coil pulled out over the rest...

    This.
    On me, the Gibraltar bun gives a completely other hold than a Nautilus.

    Huh. This used to be a super reliable bun for me when my hair was like, waist to hip length, but today it wasn't holding very well, I had to break out my grabbiest fork to make it work. In the past I secured it like it was center held, maybe I need to do it like the second video and fasten it through the outer coils instead.

    I just tried it, and the Gibraltar is definitely flatter than the Nautilus. The Gibraltar is also more hair pin friendly.

    I think it's a marriage between a LWB and a Nautilus, but the hair is twisted. Whatever it is, it looks tidy and has an excellent hold



    Sumidha, your version looks much more interesting than mine. Mine just looks like a LWB, as far as I can see.

    Stick is from Purdy Hall on Etsy. Heehee, white streaks developing!

    Thanks Sarahlabyrinth, interesting is a kind word for it, lol. I couldn't get it to hold well, even with my super long Quattro fork, I ended up taking it out. I'll try this one again in a couple years and see if it works again.

    I like yours, nice and symmetrical, and a pretty stick with your hair color!
