The Everyday Bun is one of Hypnotica's double twist buns.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbsNJ3j1VSg

Gather all hair into a ponytail, hold the tail against the scalp with one hand (first hand- usually left for the right handed), four fingers* extended over the tail (thumb under) and the other hand pulling the hair up over the fingers to form a loop over the fingers. Continue holding the tail with the second hand, use the first hand to slowly pull the length of the tail while making a twisting motion like drawing circles with the fingers. Make only one twist. For longer lengths, you may be able to wrap the loose length around the base. The loop still on the first hand is then placed around the base, forming an outermost ring. Insert fork through the middle, exiting over the outermost coil on the bottom of the bun.


*fewer depending on length/thickness, may take some experimentation to find the right size for each individual.




Hypnotica describes this one:
Make a ponytail. Then you make a loop, twirl your hand, grab the coiled piece of hair and secure it. When you stab that twisted hair, stab it somewhere in the middle. The fork should exit over the bottom coil.

So ... Kind of a loose upside-down nautilus secured vertically? Whatever I did, it feels messy but actually looks okay - the test will be if I can recreate it!

Hrumph. The strange top-knot I have created could be called many things, but "success" probably isn't one of them. Back to the growing board for me!

I wasn't going to attempt this one because for me it's one of those buns that I cannot distinguish from a handful of others. (Yes, I admit it, I have bunblindness.)

But I was bored and thought what the hey.

It's all well and good and I kind of like the messy bun top knot look that I've achieved here that is so tricky with classic length hair...

But just wait until I add the side view pic. I could pick up radio stations in Antarctica with this thing...

Whoa, Nelly.

I need to try to get it to lie flatter on my head somehow...

Tried this (or some version of it - need to watch the video again) a few times; it's nice and loose at the scalp yet secure, great for night-time. Not sure whether I've done it right though!

HAHA the song, sent the video to my sister just for that :D

I kind of did it on first try. But my 5" 2 prong hair fork gets lost inside, I wonder if it helps to have >2 prongs and a longer length, like in the video.

Ok, it's not July anymore but I tried this bun out today, I think it might be a reliable one for me (and there's only one reliable bun for me right now)! I only had to try twice to get it stay with my slippery hair and even with a somewhat slippery hair toy:

Well that was fun! I never officially learned how to do these kind of buns. I kind of have just always winged it. Twist my hair around itself and then use a stick to block the ends, to keep my hair from unraveling. If any of that made sense. :D Ill definitely need to practice this bun style a few more time so its not so messy. Nice video.

Trying to do this one, okay I have a question but not sure how to word it :

The bit of hair that the fork first stabs into, is that a small loop of the tail that just comes out and upwards?

Yes, it looks to me like she's catching some of the tail loop, then over the top of the primary loop, into the main structure, then over the bottom of the primary loop to secure.

I was excited to watch this because it's a nice variation of the knotted bun I use all of the time. This will be a good addition to my rotation of buns.

Thanks for the video!
