I used a fancy wooden hair stick though, was REALLY easy to do, it's comfortable and it is staying up!

I took a photo which I'll post later - I'm pretty ill today...

Yay! Congrats on achieving to do a pencil bun. :cheer:
Know exactly how it feels, and it's currently the only bun I'm able to do.

Yippee! That's my favorite bun (it's my daily bun, in fact) and my favorite video for learning it. You did a terrific job -- it looks beautiful! :toast:

It looks really nice! Thank you for charing, now I found a bun I can do and that stays up. :D

P.S. Are your nails painted in 5 different colors? Couldn't help noticing them! :silly:

Yes, I painted all my nails in different colours (Well on each hand and each foot...) using my OPI polish...I did it for Tour de Fat (a bicycle parade in Ft. Collins, Colorado.) :)

I just did it again but with a ballpoint pen (sans lid) and it held AWESOME! I daresay, if you get a "dead" pen (no ink) save them for this! It worked better than my fancy wooden hairstick and I have no idea why.

Pics or it did not happen:

Pretty! I like it!

I wish I could get this bun to work... I tried 234235 times yesterday and it just didn't stay for more than 10 or 15 minutes at a time. Maybe my hair is too layered/short/smooth? I hope I can do a 'proper' bun soon though.
I feel like my hair is too short even though it's never been this long in my life! What is LHC doing to me?!

Your bun looks awesome, I like how the pen worked better than the stick, very cool :D

Sometimes it works for me, sometimes it doesn't. Maybe try it when your hair is good and skanky? Clean hair is harder to "style." I do it fairly tight, too, or it falls out...

Envy alert!!!!!

Sigh... I can't wait 'til I can do that. The day I find that I can successfully hold ALL my hair in a pencil bun or lazy wrap, prepare for some serious celebration on my part!

Despite my mad envy, I do heartily congratulate you on your success. :D

Oooh, I recently fell in love with the pencil bun! It's my new everyday bun because I can usually get it up and holding on the first try (unlike my cinna-bee-butt hybrid thingy I normally did) and it doesn't pull on my scalp at all. Yours looks so beautiful! :inlove:

Yeah, I'll try that.. my clean hair isn't good for anything!

I'm glad I'm not the only one :D I thought I was doing something wrong...
