    Default Has this style been done before?

    I was playing around with my hair while talking to DBF today, and created what I *think* is a new hairstyle, based on a chinese bun... which I shall call "the lumpybun" unless anybody else can come up with a better name.



    If anybody's interested, I'll have DBF take a series of pictures so that I can show how I did it.

    That looks really cool, especially with the different colored ends. How did you do it?

    (the ends are a bleaching gone wrong, LOL, but thanks )

    Bascially, this is what I did. Sorry if it makes no sense, hehe.

    Put hair into ponytail and insert stick as for a chinese bun. Separate hair into two sections, right and left, and twist both sides to the outside. Wrap up and over stick, so that the tails fall behind the stick. Keep the tails twirled, and wrap them back over the front of the stick on the same side, next to the first 'lump'. wrap tails around the outside of the bun and secure with sticks or pins.

    That does make sense, basically you just wrap the split ponytail at the base before wrapping it around for the Chinese bun. I can't wait until I have enough hair for this, it's awesome! Might take a while...

    Actually, you do the beginning of a chinese bun like regular, but then wrap it around the stick again before wrapping around the base

    I'm glad you got it mostly though!

    As a note, I've got barely tailbone hair that's 4.25" in circumference, so thinner hairtypes can probably do this way earlier.

    Awesome, it does have a name. 'Lumpybun' sounded sort of rediculous anyway :P

    Oh, how excellent. I've been looking for a new easy bun.

    I think I'll wear this tomorrow.
