June 28th, 2008, 09:16 PM
I am so jumping up and down right now! I had no idea my hair was even long enough yet. I just played with it and tried and WOOHOO I can do it. What a nice surprise! So here is my teeny little figure 8.

beautiful! It was hard to call mine a figure 8. It had a few extra lumps. LOL

Looking great!!

June 29th, 2008, 09:00 AM
Good for you! It took me forever to figure out how to do this. Yours looks really good.

It's beautiful! Congratulations! I'm so jealous, I can't even put mine in any sort of braid, let alone bun...
Oh, and the pic is great! (love the visuals :))

That looks great. My first F8 didn't even resemble an 8!

That's a nice figure-8, something I've rarely been able to accomplish. Mine usually come out looking like a croissant.

It's so pretty! I love this hairstyle. I used to be able to do them and now I don't know why I can't seem to get it to look right.

That looks great, dontcallmejessi! You did a superb job. I'm glad it was such a pleasant surprise for you that you could do it! :D

June 29th, 2008, 12:44 PM
It looks perfect. I am still waiting til the day I can do a figure 8. :)

June 29th, 2008, 02:02 PM
Oh that's is gorgeous! I remember when I did my first one. I still wear them a lot, they're so comfy and hold so well! Very classis look too I think.

Congratulations! :cheese:

That is just beautiful!

June 29th, 2008, 03:47 PM
it looks nice and so good for ur first try.

June 29th, 2008, 06:48 PM
Good golly! That is a beautiful figure 8! I've tried with my hair, but just can't seem to pull it off. Congrats on doing such a good job!

Awww, thank you all. But i feel so unworthy. It really was as simple as could be. All I did was make like a cinnabun and then flip the top loop up and slightly loosen it a bit and then poke the stick through the 2 loops. This is my new favorite bun now. I think if my hair was any longer it wouldn't be so easy to do. I'd have to figure out what to do with the rest of the coils. maybe that is why others have a hard time with it, you have more hair? either thick and it doesn't hold or longer so too many coils. my hair is also layered so it isn't too thick. I will still take the compliments :D

Great job! Looks awesome!

That looks pretty.

June 30th, 2008, 06:31 AM
What a coincidence!

I also did my very first acceptable figure 8 today! I also took a picture but I'll post it later... I don't seem to be putting the stick well tough...

Yours looks very good! Congratulations!

June 30th, 2008, 06:35 AM
I don't think it looks teeny at all. I love the stick you used to hold it. Very nice!

June 30th, 2008, 01:50 PM
You have a lovely figure 8 there!!

June 30th, 2008, 01:56 PM
Lovely - so perfectly shaped, dcmj!

Mine usually come out looking like a croissant.
Hee, me too, spidermom.
