My signature bun, I wear that almost all the time. For those of you wondering, I have finally made a movie how to on it. No sound but images should be clear :)

What a great tutorial! Your bun is so pretty.

I also watched a Korean bun tutorial. It was interesting to see a different culture's take on the bun.

I am glad it was clear! I purposely slowed down of course, but it can be done as quickly as within a few seconds.

Thank you!

It's the bun you all have been seeing these past few months, with all the different hair toys. Different looks, but the same bun :)

Very cool tutorial. Seems to be pretty simple and straight-forward.

Your video is very nicely done. I like how you do each step slowly and clearly. The bun looks great.

very nice.I have too many layers to make it work though.Maybe one day soon.

I also watch the Korean Bun video.I was digging it untill she broke out the hairband.I'm trying to steer away from them when I do buns.

Oh, wow. Nice to see how to really put in a hairstick too, I'm just starting to get interested in them. Thank you :)

Nice. I like your bun and the video is clear!

Maybe I can manage it now, I never understood how to do it, thankk

Thanks!! On me the cinnamon bun won't stay up.. the ends aren't tucked tightly and my hair is slippery, so yeah. I started thinking what to do with the short hair I have, and this is the result. :)

Yay, Eadwine!
Now there's a valuable tutorial video. (And your hair is that spun silk I always dreamed of.:p )
I tried to leave you a comment but it was disabled.
I get aggravated to no end when someone does a hair tutorial at 100mph. You need to do a tutorial to show others how to do a tutorial:D
I am not sure how easy the bun will be for me, as I have quite a bit of coarser hair.
Anyway, nice job. Thank you for sharing.

eadwine
March 8th, 2008, 11:37 AM
Yeah I purposely did that, as I don't check things on there anyway :)

Thanks!

Eadwine, I read your written instructions over at TBB and couldn't figure them out. This helps so much, so thanks - I'm sure to try that one soon! :flower:

Great! Yes, an image says more than 1000 words :)

You lot have encouraged me to make more tutorials!

I also really liked that the bun had the look of a very-long hair bun but could be done by those of us with quite a bit shorter hair. Thanks!

thats a cool bun is your hair BSL? i dont know if my hair is as long as yours but its one for the future.
thanks for sharing

Love it-- thanks! I was going to rate it 5 stars, but it said ratings were disabled... so I favorited it instead.

Now, once my hair gets a bit longer... I'll be all over that!

Yes, that is something I noticed too! It fools the passer-by, and makes us feel good in the process :lol:

gee your hair grows quick, its definitely grown looking at your video!
you will be at BSL by May I bet! august for me...i hope!

By May? Oh may the gods grant me that! :lol:

I sincerely hope so!

Great tutorial! This is terrific too - I generally have hair that is too short/too thick for many updo's, with this bun, I have the perfect amount of hair...I did however do it backwards :grin: I'll try it again, I'm sure it probably doesn't matter.

eadwine
March 8th, 2008, 01:53 PM
It doesn't matter one bit. I am doing this the right handed way now, when I wrote the tutorial I was doing it left handed. Do it the way it feels most comfortable. :)


Do share pics everyone! :D I am so curious!

Lovely tutorial--I found it very helpful. I tried 'er out a couple of times, but apparently while we're at similar lengths my hair is too thick to get it quite like yours. I followed the steps and got something remotely similar and rather secure up.

Thank you for sharing. :D

Thanks eadwine, great tutorial. It looks much neater than the bun I do!

March 8th, 2008, 06:27 PM
Thanks for the tutorial. Whats funny about this is I tried this ten second bun back in Oct/Nov and it worked great. I tried it in February and couldn't make it work with my new length. Like you Im also about 1.5 inches from BSL.

So its great to see that tutorial on someone with hair pretty much the same length as mine. Thanks. :)

March 8th, 2008, 09:25 PM
By Jove, I think I've got it! That video is brilliant, eadwine! Thank you for posting it.

The first twist is counter-intuitive. If I hadn't seen the video, I would never have understood the instructions.

Yay! I have a new bun in my repetoire! :)

eadwine
March 8th, 2008, 11:30 PM
Thanks all!!

Yeah, that first twist at the nape I do automatically :lol: without thinking even. It isn't needed really, but I have these shorter nape hairs, and I secure them into the bun by making that twist at the start. It does also help to fix the starting point that way, but it is not mandatory. The very last twist before putting the ends under I do to avoid fly aways, secures them again so the ends stay put.

For some reason I couldn't quite get this to come out right for me...I think it's because even though my longest hair is roughly BSL, I have a lot of shorter layers that prevent me from having enough hair to do the last "tuck through" part effectively enough to hold the bun. Soon though! Soon there will be 10sec quick bunning!

eadwine
March 9th, 2008, 01:46 AM
Could be your hair is thicker than mine, have you tried doing it without any twisting at all?

Juanita
March 9th, 2008, 03:18 AM
Good tutorial. Tried out with a pencil at my computer.Feels nice and firm.Maybe with longer hair you could go around the base of the twist once or twice to take up some length.

Cheers

A longer haired friend over on the Dutch forum did something even different, she twisted the length she had left over around the entire bun. Whatever works. I have no idea what I will come up with, I have to wait till my hair is MUCH longer :lol:

March 9th, 2008, 04:56 AM
lovely bun! You do your updo's a lot tighter then mine! I will have to try that once my hair dries.

eadwine
March 9th, 2008, 05:06 AM
I have to. If I don't it will simply fall out after a while, and I cannot have that.

Advantage of this bun.. if it is too tight, I wiggle the bun, it comes a bit looser then :)

Thanks for the video! And it never occurred to me to look on youtube for buns, but there are tons under 'bun tutorial'.

eadwine
March 9th, 2008, 05:39 AM
Oh definitely! There is another thread on this forum that holds loads :)

Lize
March 9th, 2008, 06:25 AM
I love that bun! I will definately try it in a year or so when my hair is long enough. ;)

I can't get this bun to stay with a hair stick, but I've came up with a Ficcare version. I think I can get a pic of it later....

March 9th, 2008, 11:01 AM
Great! Use whatever works for you :)

This is the same as the Inside-Out bun which I make all the time. A longer tail would be wrapped around the initial loop.
When pinned with a stick or fork, this bun can be held by the tail hair inside the initial loop, and not scalp hair. (thus the name "inside-out bun")

A short stick or fork and the initial loop work like a hairslide. The stick or fork simply goes over one side of the loop and under the tail hair in the center of the initial loop and over the other side of the initial loop.

Even more interesting, is that if you leave off the last part I just described, you actually have a log roll.

This bit is exactly what my bun does :)

Tada! You made that look so easy! When all my layers grow out, I'll try it, but for now all I can manage is a French twist! Nice job!

That is what I call an orchid bun, which is my signature bun! I can twist it either way as to not wear hair the exact same way all the time. Love this bun!
