Topic: "Two side up" hairstyle

Posted under General


By this, I mean the hairstyle specified in the checklist on post #951006. Probably needs to be tagged since I see it often enough (vivio, yui_(angel_beats!), suzutsuki_kanade, shidou_mariya, etc.) but as far as I know, we don't have a tag for it. twintails long_hair is very ineffective at finding it given they're both so common. If we don't have a tag yet, what would be a good name? "Two side up" seems like unintuitive wasei-eigo, but I'm OK with it if there isn't a better name for it. EDIT: Went ahead and started tag so relevant posts can be tagged, and we can alias if a different name is decided on.

    Also just to note, I uploaded a post a while back with the character Hasegawa Kobato (who also has this hairstyle) and decided upon the combination of short_twintails long_hair after failing to find a tag for it without having to create one...

    If we go with two_side_up, maybe the tag could use a identifier, like *_twintails so that it's obviously a hair-related tag at first glance... or something less awkward-sounding, I dunno.

    how about post #571315 and post #1007045, do they qualify too or is this new tag only for much fuller and longer hair? thanks.

    Hmm... not sure. Haqua's are so thin (almost like ahoge or antenna hair, just from the side) it seems like they've barely even been tagged as twintails. But then I don't think we haven't qualified twintails based on thickness much anyway (only ones I see are "short", "uneven", and "low").

    Nico Nico Pedia has an entry on ツーサイドアップ and a rather huge list of characters, so that could be helpful filling the tag. Don't see Haqua on it, but there may be characters with similar hair. Guess I'll have to check through it at some point to see.

    Probably could alias it to a qualifier, such as two_side_up_(hairstyle). Still not necessarily intuitive, but like with Japanese terms that may be unfamiliar at first like tsurime, a wiki definition and context (just searching the tag) would make it clear.

    It's like vestigial twintails or something? Auxiliary twintails? I feel as though Two side up can be improved on in English....

    The more I think on this, though, the less I feel we should make up something when there's a term already used among Japanese people. "Twintails" itself isn't really an English word but also wasei-eigo.

    Just call it two-side_up_(hairstyle) and be done with it. We should have the tag regardless, if someone has a grand inspiration for something better, we can alias it.

    Also, Fate had this on occasion in A's.

    I'm surprised we didn't have a tag for it, its fairly common.

    Isn't that just a side ponytail?

    It's a type of side ponytail, depending on whether the character has a portion of straight hair. Something like post #1019456 is a side ponytail, but not "one side up".

    Someone made this tag half updo in 2009

    That looks like something a little different browsing the tag (See for example, post #737119: girl on the left would be half updo, girl on the right would be two side up), but that hairstyle needs to be tagged more often too. Glad I know of that now.

    I went through tagging some two side up today and wondered if hair rings would count, such as post #611224 or post #999739, as opposed to post #715487 or post #838404.

    Some hair rings are done completely up while others are not, similar to how not all twintails are done Hatsune Miku style. I've also noticed the same with double bun, such as post #34558 and post #40403.

    Are we keeping this to just loosely-tied twintails, or can different two-sided hairstyles also fall under two side up?

    sorry to bump this up, but tsukamoto_tenma reminded me of haqua_d'rot_herminium's hair. could swear saw other characters similarly before but could not remember now and failed to keep track all of them. i'm planning of using two_side_up_thinner or haqua's_hairstyle as placeholder tags until such time a more appropriate one arrives. open for better name alternatives. will probably populate them later in a few days.

    What's the difference here, is it that the up parts are significantly shorter than the down parts? Does Segawa Izumi count?
