    What you find irresistable is what you choose not to resist.

    Bun boredom will be a thing of the past if you learn to section your hair..i.e.:

    1) Detangle all hair
    2) Make a horizontal part from the top of the left ear around the back of the head to the top of the right ear
    3) Take all the hair above the part, comb it out gently, then loosely braid it. Secure with hair friendly elastic band.
    4) Coil the braid in a bun, securing with hairpins (not bobby pins) at the 4 directions (north/south/east/west). Tuck tassle under bun.
    5) Take all the hair below the part, comb it out gently, braid it loosely.
    6) Take braid and wind it around the bun already made. Tuck in tassle. Pin securely with crimped hairpins.

    Voila: double braided bun.


    This style can also be done for: double roped buns, cinnamon buns, double twists, the Cameo bun.

    Sarahlabyrinth also added side braided accents to her double braided bun for added interest.

    Boredom - that's why I had bangs and side tendril pieces cut. I don't care if I know 1000 buns (I don't). From the front, a bun is a bun is a bun; they all look the same, pretty much.
