View Full Version : look at my "new" bun :)

March 21st, 2008, 11:07 AM
I'm sure I didn't invent this, but it's new to me :) During a failed attempt at an infinity bun (which I still can't do properly), I ended up with this look:

held with flexi-8:

held with hairsticks:

My husband said "Whoa... I have no idea what's going on up there, but it looks cool." Just thought I'd share :D

(Sorry the second picture is so big. I can't seem to get it any smaller)

It's so pretty! It looks like a heart! :inlove:

It looks kind of like a clover leaf bun? Very pretty and very pretty hair.

Wow it looks so pretty, imho even better than the infinity bun! :bigeyes:

Very nice, I like it best with the crossed sticks. Keeping my fingers crossed that you can duplicate it.

Very pretty!

So pretty! I like your flexi too!

March 21st, 2008, 11:35 AM
Looks very nice! I like your flexi also!

It looks to me as if you might have made an extra twist with the right loop somehow.

But I agree, it looks great! :applause

VERY pretty, don't stop doing that bun :)

March 21st, 2008, 12:13 PM

Yes, very cool indeed!
Looks great on you.

WOOW, if you manage to do that bun again please post instructions!!!

Thanks for all the comments/compliments on the now-officially-named-"pretzel bun" :) Like wavelength said, I made an extra loop when coiling my hair and after I pulled the top loop over, I pulled the second loop down and left the bottom loop where it was (hope that makes sense). I wore my hair like this all day yesterday, with hairsticks, and it held up really well. I'm trying to decide if I like it well enough to wear my hair like this on Easter :D

Unique! And I LOVE that Flexi-8 clip... *goes to Flexi-8 website to search for it* :D

Mmmmmm pretzels. Mmmmm.

:D Lovely bun.

That's a very pretty bun! I really like how it looks with the flexi-8. You've got some fantastic shine, too!

March 22nd, 2008, 01:12 AM
very pretty, it reminded me of a pretzel too!

What a gorgeous bun!

Looks great! I can't wait until my hair gets long enough to do an updo.

The top photo does look like a heart. I love those accidental buns!

March 22nd, 2008, 07:59 AM
Very elegant!
Now remember what you did ;-)

That's just gorgeous! :inlove: It's definitely a keeper, and I'm glad you remember how you did it. So many times people make a lovely accidental bun and can't remember how they did it. That would be me, as well. :oops:

It's definitely a lovely Easter 'do. :flowers:
