View Full Version : Small Victory! (big picture)

I got all of my hair to stay up in a bun today! I've got very thick hair, over 5" in circumference, and some layers in the mix.... and it NEVER wants to cooperate in a bun. I still had to use one bobby pin to keep the ends in place, but other than that, it's all sticks. :p


ETA: Sticks are from http://www.etsy.com/transaction/73264851
ETA2: circumference, not diameter. hard to believe I'm a calculus student with a mistake like that! lol

Yay! :cheer: Unexpected milestones are the best :D

And woooowww that's thick hair! Really pretty color, too. :)

I am so jealous of your thick hair! My hair is curly, so people assume it's thick, but it isn't.

Woo-hoo! Congratulations! Thick hair is so lovely, but it can be such a pain in that it has to be so much longer to do certain hairstyles. May it be the first of many hair successes. :)

How gorgeous is that!

Thanks, y'all! As you can see, it's a bit oblong.... the upper right part of the bun didn't even fit in the picture. Taking pictures of the back of your head is hard. Haha.

Lovely sticks and bun. It's the best feeling when you can finally get your hair to stay with a stick! :D Woot!

Bahahaha! Five inch diameter- you would need a wheelie car for your head :D

The bun looks gorgeous!

Woot its all in a bun? With sticks? And its over 5 inches, I must know how you managed this voodoo at 22 inches long! ;)

Congratulations, it's sooo pretty! :D

Five inches of bun!! :bigeyes: well done for getting it secured, looks neat.

Wow your hair is beautiful.

Well done, I know it's very frustrating and difficult to make buns with thick hair!

Terrific, and definitely a bigger deal than "small" victory.

March 11th, 2012, 11:42 AM
Wonderful! I think the color of your hair is absolutely gorgeous :D

March 11th, 2012, 12:25 PM
Congrats! The first bun feels so good! And I promise you, it will only get better! :)

March 11th, 2012, 12:59 PM
Congrats! I remember when I got my thick layered hair into a bun- this January actually! I have 6in circumference hair, so I feel your pain!

March 11th, 2012, 01:45 PM
