    Default July 2015 - Disc Bun

    A sturdy bun that can be done with less length for most people.

    And there are variations!

    The disc bun is usually a bit of hit or miss for me, sometimes it holds like a rock and sometimes it falls apart within minutes. Todays version doesn't look at all like it usually does but I really like it:


    Now I just have to figure out what I did to make it look like this...

    It looks like the coils around the loops might be loose or something?

    I've not yet mastered the art of taking pictures of the back of my head, but I'm wearing a discbun! It's one of the few I can do along with a cinnabun.

    Looks like I can do this, though I need spin pins or bobby pins to hold the center area secure.

    keep calm and unruffled on the surface but paddle like the devil underneath.

    I know lots of people love this bun but I hate this bun.

    First my hair likes to stick to itself. Then it always catches on my wedding ring and floofs a section out. Then I never make the loops the same size so it never comes out quite right. Then it looks really tiny compared to my favoured poofy-nautilus. And it falls out quite easily. I've tried lots of times, lots of different ways and nope. And I'm not taking my ring off to do my hair - I am clumsy and forgetful, we all know what would happen!

    Here is the best one I've ever done and I'm still not keen:


    I *love* it on other people though, don't get me wrong. Especially you cat11! Gorgeous!!

    ^_^ Thank you! If it looks good it's because I wear it every day almost so there's a lot of practice going on.

    maria_asa, I really like how yours turned out. It looks almost ropey. And it's shiny.... *stares into the hair sun*

    Since it's the bun of the month I did it with a flexi today, and a ribbon around it. I definately need practice making flexi buns. It's so weird, sometimes I can center hold this bun with a Large flexi and it's fine, other times XL feels really tight, like when I was doing it today. I think it has to do with how deep into the bun I insert the flexi... it can't take a lot of height.
