Who likes making video tutorials?

Gather hair into ponytail, put two fingers over it, and loop the ponytail over your fingers. Wrap the length clockwise (twist if you like, but it's not necessary), grab it with your left thumb, and move right hand around to grasp the tail from the other side.


Now, grab the length with the two fingers that are in the loop, hold the loop with right thumb and index finger while pulling the length through it. Flatten the loop, and insert hair toy of choice across it. And that's all! I'm just leaving the ends sticking out, at least for now. There's just a couple of inches of them anyway.




It can also be secured with a fork, hair sticks, etc.




Depending on length, you can wrap it twice around before pulling it through the loop, or pull it through first and wrap it another round afterwards.

I just washed my hair, but I'll have to do this bun again soon. It's one I really like.

I might practice this, but I dislike knots. They are too far off my scalp. I might play around with it.

This is the video tutorial made by KarenLynn herself! She calls it a double-looped knot (https://youtu.be/NEtHr-EeBy8)

Braided KarenLynn knot bun on floor length hair. It was not very comfortable and I took it out as soon as pictures were taken.

It took.me 2 goes, first time ended in fiant tangle as too thick/fingers too small 🤣
Second go adapts by wrapping loop over thumb and fingers to make it bigger to fit hair through and worked out okay 😊

I made this with two extra wraps and it's holding well with a sturdy 5-prong.

A bit late, but here is mine. It always ends up really thick on one side.

Finally, a style I can participate in!

No pics, but I'm currently wearing this style with an orange MorgansMane stick. It feels really sturdy! My only problem is that I'm not really great at putting the sticks in a way that's aesthetically pleasing so right now it's lopsided.
