    This is not an epic-fail at all, it is in fact, a lovely up-do. Your hair looks so pretty like this sipnsun.

    Thank you so much! It stayed in place very well which is always a plus. I only took it down a few minutes ago to try another bun which was an epic fail lol! I'm trying to branch out from the LWB and cinnabun!

    You are welcome, sipnsun.

    I am waiting for the day when I will be able to participate in the Hairstyle of the Month. I can do a topsy-tail, though!

    I had never done a braided topsy and it looked good just hanging down my back too! Hopefully it won't be long before you can experiment, I'm just now getting there and it's been fun!

    Here is the tool used, and this is how you use it.

    I like the soft look of a Gibson tuck, but I'm not sure how this will work with quite long hair and substituting crochet chains for the braid. I'll try tomorrow.

    I think it's lovely sipnsun!

    I tried to modify this for shorter thicker hair by doing two french braid but it didn't work

    Here's a photo of that just for funsies.


    So, I tried again with twin english braids centered at the back of my neck. I like it. It's comfortable and it works well with my new(ish) Church Street and Love fork.



    ETA: For the first topsy on each side I did the left braid on the right side and the right braid on the left side. That way, I could join the two mounds together. with the fork.

    These are fun! I'll have to try some more variants this month! I think I usually do twin french twist on the sides of my head, rather than a topsied ponytail. I think it looks better on me.
    Here's a photo from earlier this summer, I will have to try and recreate it in honour of the month:

    This looks so beautiful! Thanks for the description, too. I’m going to try that for sure.

    And the French braids that “didn’t work” look funkyfunmessy to me, so perhaps though it wasn’t the look you were trying for, I think it still “works”!

    Everyone's styles look really good!

    I had some time today. So my first attempt was more like looped braids, not exactly the effect I was going for.


    The second attempt. I tied three braids together at the ends with this long scarf thing, rolled it up, and tied the scarf in the front. I actually really like how it came out except that I couldn't get the front to look quite right.


    Third and final attempt. I clipped the braids together at the ends with a barrette, rolled them up, and pinned it. It looked good, but it hurt. I need a better method of securing.
