    Mod hat off. Mod hat on. Don't make me wear the mod hat, it messes up my hair. *grin*

    Wow, TrapperCreekD, that's such a lovely bun! Looks 1000x better than my attempts at a rope braided disc bun

    I think you'd be surprised! Separating hair into two sections for the bun allows those with shorter length/thicker hair to do this bun earlier than most other buns.

    Thanks guys!

    Now, back to your regularly scheduled Disc Bun.

    Wavy, wurly, sometimes curly; on my way to healthier, longer hair!

    Inspired by this thread: a variation of Disc Bun. I don't exactly remember why I thought that three strands (one straight one in the middle and two braided ones on the sides) would be a great starting point for this bun, but sometimes buns just happen.

    So beautiful!!! Can you please share more about how you did it with 3 strands? Usually, one strand is wrapped clockwise, the other counter-clockwise... but how do you do it with 3 strands?

    Thank you meteor!
    Hmm, I guess I first made a regular disc bun with the strand in the middle, but before securing it with the sticks I wrapped the braided sections around the bun's base in opposing directions. So the disc buns loops or "wings" just waited in my hand to go over all the wrapped hair at last.

    I finally got this one to work! I decided to try it securing the ponytail with a hair tie before starting to form the bun, and it worked much better that way. (Without the hair tie, it doesn't want to stay put at my length--just past APL.)

    I tried to take a picture, but I can't seem to get my phone camera to cooperate with me. I'll probably do this as my style du jour tomorrow and I'll try to get a pic then.
    Not quite APL -> APL -> BSL -> Mid-Back with compact-cut layers and holding a while-> ???

    Disc bun with a separate braided section wrapped around. One of my favorite buns as it's really easy and super sturdy.
