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

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. :)

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!

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.

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!
