I was looking for a bun idea that looks like curls? You know when you might bun and curl the ends and some how leave them out to cover the bun? Is this confusing or does anyone know what I'm talking about? I don't have a pic to show and am having a hard time find instructions on how to make this bun. I was thinking about a pony tail and then section it off and bobby pinning them some how?

This might not be what you want, but I sometimes do this thing where I'll pony my hair, then section little chunks and just twist twist twist them until they fold down on themselves. Then I use a butterfly clip or a bobby pin on it and move on to the next twisting section. Maybe this is what you mean?

Hi there!

Maybe if you were to curl the ends rather curly, then
put your hair in a Figure 8 or cinnamon bun, but leave
the ends out? You may have to practice in trying to get
the rope of hair to end near the top so the rest of your
hair, (left out of the bun) will shower down over your
8 or bun.

Does that make sense? Hope this helps. How long is your hair?

I've done something like this for really formal events pre-LHC--and with lots of hairspray. I usually make a sturdy ponytail (2+ elastics), and coil sections about two fingers, pinning them hap-hazardly with bobby pins in an X. Later I'd pick up the hand-mirror to see the back of my head, and better analyze where to put the curled section, for balance. Normally I'd use about 17+ sections to the ponytail, I guess, and I'd pin in some sort of artificial flower. I've left sections loose, at the front, and twisted them back to pin, coiling those as well, just to make things interesting. Is this what you mean? (I should really find a photo . . .)

Edit: it takes a long time, though, and is pretty damaging so it only serves for really formal occasions. I've never used t more than three times in a year.

I did this by sectioning off a ponytail & rolling each section around a bottle (I didn't have any magnetic rollers at the time) and then I pinned them down with big bobbie pins. HTH

Have you tried making a rope braid and bunning it? That often ends up looking like curly hair pinned up when I do it.

Alternatively, you can often buy buncovers with curly fake hair attached from the sort of places that sell hair for extensions - I used to have one, and it was great for keeping my hair protected in winter.

Are you talking about the pile of curls on top of the head that you see for so many wedding-y updos? (Like the first pic here (http://www.weddinghair.com/html04/longhair.html) and quite a few of the subsequent pictures.)

I think those are made more or less by gathering hair into a ponytail, wrapping sections of hair to make a roll or curl, pinning it to the head, and repeating this until all the hair is used up. Then spray the heck out of it. But I'm not certain. I think I would like to do that occasionally myself, when I feel like dressing up a bit, but I haven't tried it.

ETA: Oh, look -- the site I linked to has picture instructions in the PDFs! Cool!

This is the hair style I am talking about at the very bottom of the page. But I can seem to do the french twist in the regency style because my hair is to long.

Does anyone have this style for hip length hair?

Yes, I can not make my rope bun turn out right. The middle piece won't lay down and it pokes out to far. Drives me crazy cause I can't get it to lay right. So I don't wear it often.

No, these are beautiful and I do the first one but I pin the bottom down under the bottom of the bun. I have a pick in my photo album if you would like to see

Could you make a bunnytail (I'd guess you should be able to with 32" of hair bhut if you can't then you could always bun half your hair around the other half and then fold up the hanging half to make it shorter) and then tuck in remaining hair until you have just the ends left in the middle and then curl them?

Bunnytail??? I seen a girl and she bunned the top have and had some curls to the side and took the bottom have and I couldn't see what she did with the hanging half but she got the same effect I was looking for. Where do you tuck them?
