    I would like to ask about the LWB. I can make it, but it never holds and the loops fall apart after a short while. Is my hair too short or is it supposed to be secured with extra pins?

    I can do it and I'm not at BSL yet. What I've found out is it doesn't hold for me when I make it the usual way. I only use one finger. And I change the loop. Instead of keeping it at the same direction, I switch it.
    Give me a bit I'll record what I mean. I'm not sure how to explain it lol.

    I also realized I do it different in general, with the hands and stuff :'D

    Yay I need a bun I can make. I'm at BsL but my hair will not hold a bun. I will say I do have a v shaped hemline and my hair is like silk. Which yes it feels nice but it has no grip. Strangely if I put my hair up when wet I have much better luck. My hair has more grip then. So I would like to learn buns for BsL that don't need a hair tie or a bun form.
    Who knows what I'm gonna do with my hair anymore...

    Seconding the one finger thing, that's the only way I can get it to work for me. I can sometimes get two to work now, but it's only reliable with a smaller loop for my bsl hair. Granted, my hair is the opposite of slippy, so this might not be that helpful.

    Waist-length, and (grudgingly) rocking the fairytale ends. Hoping for hip by the end of 2019 with at least a semi-decent hemline. Ultimate goal of TBL...or longer.

    There was some awesome stuff in there--this forum is so crazy helpful. If I can find it back (somebody AKA me should have actually bookmarked it if she was thinking ahead...), I'll transfer some of the tutorials folks posted over here, so we have a comprehensive "instructions" thread.

    And try using a different holding tool. I need a multiprong fork for Lazy Wraps.

    I can't wait until my SL hair is long enough to put in a bun. For now all I can do is the peacock twist thing. For now I'll do some advanced studying.

    My hair is at bsl (however I have a short torso/from the crown I measure at 25") and I cannot get my hair in a decent bun for the life of me. I also have hands that cannot function behind my head for some reason. Notnaure if my length or lack of braid/styling fingers is causing me such distress

    I'll echo a few other people -- any tips for people with silky, fine hair (without necessarily having to resort to product) would be great! I have enough hair to do the simplified versions of a couple of buns meant for much longer hair, but my hair absolutely does not want to stay. I get lumps and droopiness which just ends up looking a mess.

    This is how I do my LWB. I mirrored it as well, because I'm a lefty.

    I figured I'm doing it different, some go upwards but I like to switch to the other side, downwards. And if I use my left hand, I place the stick on the top right side.
    Somehow if I do it the opposite direction, it doesn't stay. While this way it will stay during a workout.
