    Default The "Does this style have a name?" thread

    Hello! I've been putting together an index of different styles I can do but I'm running into trouble knowing what to label them.

    Although not everyone is composing a style index for themselves I thought it might be useful if we had a thread where people can show a hairstyle that they would like to do or did and others can help them find the LHC name for the style (if one exists). That way those that are learning can find tutorials and improve.

    Please feel free to add any new styles you see or figure out to the thread. ❤

    Here is a link to the LHC Hairstyle Thesaurus. If you don't know what a style is checking through the that link can be incredibly helpful!

    Here is a style I have been playing with on and off recently.



    It's sort of like Frida Kahlo braids but reversed.

    How to: Brush hair well and separate it into two pigtails (one just behind each ear) using claw clips. Place the scarf so the center of the length is at the center top of the head and the tails are hanging to either side. Bring the end of each side under the section and to the opposite side so that the the left scarf tail is on the right side and the right on is on the left. Remove the claw clips and sub divide the each pigtail into two sections. Use the scarf end placed on that side as the center strand of that side's braid. Tie off each pigtail. When both pigtails are done crosse them over one another at the back of the head. Tie the scarf at the front of the head. Ends can be tucked, made into a bow or covered with decoration. Hair ends and pokies can easily be zhuzhed up under the scarf.

    That’s really useful jane_marie. Your reversed frida looks lovely. I can actually do a frida! Though I looked at the braids part 1 link and wanted to cry.. so many I know I will never achieve. Like 99% of them!

    Hopefully it can be a useful thread.

    Thanks for the compliment. I bet you could do these too they are super fast and easy... even if I did do a crap job explaining them.

    The braids index is super intimidating! Thinking about how long it will take before I can do a simple rope braid gets me every time (so many layers to grow out).

    Thanks! I bet you could do them but just wrap all that lovely length around like a coronate braid and if there is any still left over you could do little loops hanging down or something.

    Your hair is so freaking lovely! I hope someday I can get mine grown out like yours.

    Moodpoisoning... I like the descriptor.
    And yes Jane Marie, this is a great idea and your braid looks amazing.

    Finally figured out a natural hair routine that works for me! Looking forward to seeing how long it can grow while staying healthy and happy

    Oh man, I have a style that belongs in this thread! I just call it the "twist and clip" because that's how you do it.
    You gather your hair into a ponytail, twist it upward, and clip the "ponytail" part vertically on your head.

    I have several examples, including a half-up version. I love this style for a quick and easy updo especially around shoulder length. My wife and I both had hair shorter than SL in these 3 examples though:



    I wanted more example photos, particularly on somewhat longer hair so I asked my wife to let me use her as a hair model.
    Her hair is collarbone length with some layers from growing out a buzz cut with only one big trim, much like mine before I had all my layers cut off.
    Her hair is also very thick and very slippery, this style turns out neater looking on thinner SL hair with less or no layers. I think it's cute regardless.
    (Sorry for the horrid image quality, my phone doesn't like fidgety subjects lol.)

    Hey Oxalis! I think that's called a peacock twist!
