    Default How do you pull back your hair?

    During the day, I typically just pull my hair back (not tightly) with a non-metal elastic. What ways have you found to pull back your hair quickly and easily while avoiding damage and excess strain on the hair?

    I also use those thick fabric-wrapped 80's style scrunchies. I don't feel that they put much strain on my hair, but they just slide out of my fine locks all of the time and I find myself constantly having to pull it back up.

    When I realized how much damage the non-metal elastics were doing to my hair, I started practicing buns. The disc bun and cinnabun both take me less than a minute and only require a stick or pen to fasten securely. Nautilus and lazy wrap buns are apparently even faster for people whose hair is thin enough to do them.

    ponytail with elastic/crappy bun with elastic/attempted braid that slides off/half up. My hair slides out of things a lot.

    I do buns now mostly, though I feel like they do put a lot of strain on the same area each time (where a ponytail holder would sit). Just because I have to twist fairly tightly and that's where the fork/sticks get pushed through every time.

    I've been in love with Scünci "no-slip grip" claw clips for years now. I don't think they cause damage for me. I always have one on me. Either for quick half ups when I need my hair out of my face when eating, or for a quick peacock twist when I need my hair off my neck when I get too hot. They even work for a low ponytail.

    I stopped wearing ponytails completely. They gave me breakage and my hair still got tangled and caught on stuff.

    I wear various buns and updos using hair sticks, forks, and Ficcares. There are lots of very fast and simple styles.

    My favorite crazy fast bun is Spidermom's, but it may require more length.

    A lazy wrap bun with a stick. It's fast and easy and holds like a rock for me, even when my hair is squeaky clean.

    I cut up old tights to make hair bands. Clean obviously . That way when I tie my hair up in a ponytail or bun using them there is no damage because they are nice and soft and there is nothing for my hair to catch in. . Buns are the quickest way to put my hair up at this length but I have to make two or three otherwise my layers pop out. Not sure you could even call them buns yet lol. More like folded ponytails. I miss braiding

    Lazy wrap bun. They look pretty, hold really well, and you can secure them with almost anything.

    I never use elastics, and my hair is in a LWB most of the time, held by a fork. But if I ever feel like doing a ponytail, this method is a good choice (less damaging and confortable)
