View Full Version : My very first full figure-8!

April 15th, 2008, 07:21 PM
Woo hoo! I discovered today that my hair has grown enough to do a full Figure-8 bun!


Finally! It's been up like this all day, and has held rock solid with only the one hairstick.

I decided also decided to measure today, to mark this momentous occasion, and I am at 30". Two inches below BSL, approaching waist when the waves are pulled straight! Wowie- I've been basically ignoring my hair for months (since around the start of the year, maybe?) and all of a sudden it's grown.....


I feel like a longhair again.

Oh I am so happy for you! It's just beautiful! I can manage one but I am at 29 inches and a little more so it's still a "hit or miss" for me! Ha! Also of course my curls don't help so it has to be a day 2 or more of the curls relaxing before I can even attempt one.

I am so glad you shared with us! It really is stunning!!!

Great job! I can't get mine to come out nicely like that. Looks fabulous, nice and thick.

Gorgeous hair and a beautiful figure-8! You pull it off so very well. I had mine up all day in an infinity bun (so just that but sideways) and it held fantastic with one stick, too. It's great you can finally wear one now! It adds some spice to your styling repetoire. :)
