View Full Version : Is this already a pre-existing bun?

I completely speed read the instructions for the Chinese bun, and slept on it. The next day I tried it, but as I now realize, it wasn’t the Chinese bun. If this is already a bun, can someone tell me the name, or have I invented a new bun?

First you braid two English braids, or two French braids.

Next, insert your hair stick as if you are going to do a Chinese bun.

Now, instead of wrapping the ends around the bun, you will do this in a ‘X’ fashion ( A braid goes left, B goes right in the X. When they hang after crossing, A braid goes right, B braid goes left in the X.)

Keep wrapping in the X until you get to the tassel.

Tuck the tassel.

You should have an X of hair over your hairstick. :)

I could be wrong, but I thought I read recently that both ways are considered a Chinese bun. As I said, I could be wrong. I bet it looks really cool!

Ditto, I do a Chinese bun both ways. :)
