View Full Version : Did I Invent A New Pony-Bun? o.O

If so, I'm currently accepting awesome name suggestions. :p

I'd tried a Lazy Wrap Ponytail a few times, but could never get it to stay in my hair. After a while, my stick/fork/clip would just go flying out. Eeek!

So I thought about a bit. For me, a Disc Bun is more secure than a LWB.... and with a little experimentation, I've found that a Disc Bun Ponytail holds like a champ! Like, even while chasing the toddlers around!

...You basically just gather your hair into a ponytail, and adapt the normal Disc Bun directions to allow your length to hang loose. Separate a little chunk from one side of the pony and wrap in one direction leaving a finger-sized loop, then separate a little chunk from the other side of the pony and wrap in the other direction leaving another finger-sized loop. Then your stick/fork/whatevaaaah goes in one loop, through the stem of your ponytail, and out the other loop.

I hope that sorta made sense-- here's a few terrible visuals! (Bonus: loads of child-related background clutter. My life=constantly cleaning up random stuff)

Just tried it out! I'm not the best at disc buns in the first place, but it worked! It's not quite as secure as a normal ponytail, for me, but it's surprisingly comfortable. :)

Thank you, PatienceNeeded! And I agree with you, CarrotTop-- it's not as secure feeling as, like, a ponytail with an elastic... but it's the most secure pony I've been able to figure out since I've gone elastic-free!

I need to get one of these hybrid ponies to work for me. I just keep putting my hair up with elastics, rocking a pony tail for a bit and then feeling guilty before taking it back down lol

It actually holds for me! Thank you! <3

Super cute! Ponytails are a no-go for me generally because of hair type... But I also had to pop in and drool over your hair color and squee with joy at seeing the SLIME stick!!! hehe.
