    Default June 2016 - Off Coiled Bun

    Ok, this style comes with a request to either find or create a video tutorial demonstrating this bun! (There used to be and article, but it didn't survive the site migration.)

    The Off Coiled Bun is similar to a cinnamon bun, but instead of wrapping each twisted coil around the last in a spiral, the next coil slightly overlaps the center of the last one. This bun takes many pins!

    Here are some examples of Off Coiled Buns I've done. I hope they help illustrate my sparse description!



    Double buns.

    Before I try/fail at this, how many pins = many?

    Is this Fox's tutorial the same? She calls it Tri-Coil Bun.

    While I have not tried this bun, I usually use 4 bobby pins (preferably the bigger type) to pin a cinnabun, inserted from the "corners", if the bun would be a square. So I'd assume for 3 coils 12 pins should be more than enough. I'd assume 6-12 for hair that is not heavy, but I might be totally off.

    I've accidentally done this, but with nearly BSL hair, I can only get 2-2.5 loops! My struggle, when trying to do this intentionally, is how to hold each loop in place as I keep going... do I pin as I go, or get it arranged and then pin? They each seem to have their pros/cons - I need at least one more hand.

    I do the first two coils and then pin. I start with my long spin pins and get as much of the overlapping coils as I can, adding any stabilizing pins as needed to hold stuff put for the moment, then once I've got it all up I go back and add more pins, adjust any that were temporary. In the last photo the finishing pins are just decoration, they don't add any needed stability.

    This is a fun one! It looks a lot more complicated than it is. After two tries I think that it's easier for me to do all the coils first and the pin. It feels more stable if I make a round bun by coiling the line of coils (like doing a braided bun). Let's see if I can take a photo tomorrow, it's too dark now.

    I took my first try with a rope braid Tomorrow I will do a more serious rendition. I just happened to have a rope braid to work with.
