View Full Version : Crooked bun on purpose (pic)

So, my SO made me a few hairsticks out of some chopsticks for my birthday. Sweet!:heartbeat They are longer than my other sticks, so instead of doing the typical horizontal chinese bun and using it as a weapon, I just stuck the stick in at an angle and proceeded to wrap- albeit crooked- the bun. This pic is after a day being out, so it's frizzville, but you get the idea. Unfortunately, the ends I always leave out (notice the small hairfork off to the side) since they will not stay tucked and the bun falls apart if I don't secure it with the fork. But I liked wearing it this way! And in real life, the ends actually gave the bun a whole new look with it crooked like this!

Sorry if this has already been done and noted here, I have not seen it or could find it in search. Anyone else twist their chinese buns?

I kind of like it crooked. I've always thought that the Chinese Bun looks kind of what you would see if you were looking up at a toilet seat while someone was sitting on it... doing it slanty makes it looks less like a butt, IMO.

Also, your hairstick is gorgeous.

Rofl, great, now in my head it will be dubbed the "butt-crack bun" forever.:lala:

Oh Nae, you never cease to crack me up! :lol:

And I think that different angles keep life more interesting.... so good on you, Paniscus, and how sweet to have a SO who knows you well enough to get/make you hairtoys! He's a keeper!!! :)

Thanks guys!

GREAT! The one updo that I can do easily looks like a b*tt. Somehow, that figures. :D

Slanty-b*tt-bun lives on!

That's super cute! I like crooked buns because it gives the look a more casual look anyways!

Rofl, great, now in my head it will be dubbed the "butt-crack bun" forever.LMAO too. Ages ago some of us were calling it "the hoohah bun". I like it better this way with the little tail to the side.

Don't worry. Doing it sideways and with the little tail like that makes it look much, much less like a butt than a regular one.

And I'm not sure anyone but another longhair would be staring at your bun long enough to decide that it looks like a butt, so I think you're safe wearing it out and about. I don't think most people can tell the difference between different kinds of buns except for us.

Heck, I've been here for the better part of a year and I still can't identify most of the different buns just from looking at them!

Categories for me are:

loose
half-up
ponytail
braid (English, French, Dutch, Herringbone, and "all the others")
bun

The braids I listed are the only ones I can identify.... everything besides those four go directly into the "all the others" sub-section of the braid category! :lol:

Awwwww..ruined it for me! ...running to find a different avatar pic that I like....haha!


And I like the slanted Chinese bun, too. I'll have to try it. Jealous of the custom-made hairstick! That's pretty!

Your avatar pic is pretty-- hoohah- bunned- people unite! Keep it!

thanks on the hairstick. It was quite simple for him to make, since he used pre-made wooden chopsticks. I myself have been toying with the idea of carving me some, but just haven't gotten around to it. I love looking at the craft section here at LHC and seeing all the wonderfully talented people. The sticks there are awesome!

Thanks Laurenji, I will not be ashamed to wear my standard bun. And GRU, you sound a lot like me. I've learned so much since being at LHC with regard to styles and so forth, but since I can't do half of them, I don't always keep names to memory.

I get my Gibson tucks confused with my chignons (sp):o

I probably would, too, except for the fact that I can do a Gibson Tuck but have never been able to to a chignon for the life of me.

Thank you! Yea, I did keep it...I still like the Chinese bun..and I'm wearing a slanted one today! I have a very long decorated Chinese chopstick, and it works great at that angle, so (like you said) it's not a weapon!
