    Ha! I just tried this for the first time two days ago, and yes, I also took pictures!

    Here is the link to the tutorial in the articles section of this site ( http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/...e&articleid=15 )

    Wow, it's been a long time since I did a chinese bun. I like the look of a chinese bun.

    The last time I tried a Chinese bun, it was an epic fail. My hair is longer now, so I'll give the normal and braided versions a go. I may or may not be successful.

    ETA: I just tried again and I can now announce that I can actually do a regular Chinese bun! I need bobby pins to keep it together because my hair seems to want to resist being put in the bun, but it looks like how a Chinese bun should! I'm going to go try the braided one, now!

    ahh, I still fail at chinese buns! I don't like starting with the ponytail so I used the chinese bun with a braided start:

    This was the very first bun I was able to accomplish that actually stayed up. I kept it up using a scrunchie to surround it. That was about BSL.

    This seems like a very sturdy bun since it starts off with a hair tie or braid! I'm definitely going to be giving this one a shot!

    try twisting the tail portions as you wrap them - takes a little practice but if you twist them a bit then you should only need to pin the ends, or you can use 2 additional sticks like it's a regular bun

    The Chinese bun is a favourite of mine when I want to do something special with my hair. I was going to try a fishtail braided one this morning, but ran out of time.

    I just worked it out but I feel I would need some bobby pins to keep it all in place if I was going out with this. Plus I would need a smaller hair tie

    I find the Chinese bun to be pretty easy -- it was the first "specialty bun" that I learned and is still one of my favorites. (OK, maybe I'll get around to taking a picture this month.)

    For those wondering how to keep the ends in place, I just tuck them in with a coupld of Good Day pins. Lasts all day for me.
