The hair tie is an incredibly useful technique, especially for restrictive bondage. Not everyone’s hair is suitable for tying, and not everyone wants their hair tied. But for people who like it, this technique provides a very versatile way of restraining the head and making a tie more immobilizing.
Used carefully, it can also be a handy way to add head support during a suspension.
This tie was developed by Topologist, who has a great video of it.
1Build a lark’s head and slip it over your right hand.
With your left hand, gather your partner’s hair together.
2Transfer the hair to your right hand and slip the lark’s head off your hand and onto the hair. Slide it all the way up to the scalp and tighten it.
3While tightening the lark’s head with your left hand, use your right hand to separate the two halves of the lark’s head.
4Continue to tighten the lark’s head and separate the two halves until the lark’s head collapses, bending the hair into a U turn.
Snug the tie into place.
5Make a twist in the rope and place it over the tie to make a half hitch.
Snug the half hitch into place between the previous tie and the scalp.
6Add another half hitch if there is still room between the tie and the scalp. Snug it tightly into place.
