View Full Version : First bun!

April 22nd, 2008, 10:03 AM
It's been about three weeks since I was first able to put my hair up (in a sort-of-french-twist) with a hair stick for the first time. I've been practicing every day, and yesterday I decided to see if I could manage a real bun - as opposed to twist hair, fold in a loop, insert stick, and pray.

It worked! :cheer: And it held! :joy: All afternoon! :happydance:


The stick, by the way, is a Quattro FlexStix Basic.

Awesome! It looks great, and I love that little stick!

Nice bun, Tomm! (snort)

Congratulations! And that's a cute little stick.

Good going Tomm! It looks great! It's only going to get easier and more fun from here. :)

April 22nd, 2008, 11:45 AM
That's great, Tomm! Now watch that bun as it's getting bigger and bigger...! :cheese:

Thank you, everyone! :flower:

heidihug and WritingPrincess, I do love the Quattro Basics sticks (I have a set of the StarLites Basics too, in aluminum). They come in a little tube that fits very nicely in my pocket - I am never without a stick!

Thank you for the comment about my ringlets, KajiKodomo! I love they way they look and how playful they are. I prefer having them down, but it's nice to know that I can get them off my neck if I need to. Summers here are a brutal mix of heat and humidity. Thinking about having to walk around with a "blanket" on my neck makes me shudder!

Izzie, I am so glad to know that I could bring a (snort) to your day :silly:

Lamb, until now, any kind of real bun was but a dream. I feel like I have crossed over a threshhold!

Tomm, Im so pleased for you! :)
I cut my hair last year and I hated it so much that I could have cried. I can just about manage a bun similar to yours at the moment (still cant get the photos to work though) and Im really excited about it too. Ive also ordered some quattro sticks and I can only hope they look as good in my hair as they do in yours.
YEAAAA TOMM !!! :) :)

So pretty! That's a good feeling - the first real bun that stays! Good for you! :cheer:

Thank you, loves2spin, Shanarana (six cheeses; I'm stunned!), Shirlpunzel, and Tasarwen! I can't wait to see what my hair will let me do next!
