    Default Bun Instructions & Troubleshooting

    Hey, I hope you guys find this a good idea. Basically a thread where we can discuss bun problems & get written instruction for how to do them properly or share videos. Basically if you just cannot get a certain bun to work from tutorials, get help here

    I will add a link to the bun list thread once I find it.

    If this is not a good idea or something like this exists, we can let it die If not, can I start?

    That seems like an excellent idea to me, I'm not sure if something like it exists though!

    No, I think there's a number of loose threads, but nothing centralized so to speak. Great idea for a thread, IMMHO!

    Great idea, thanks for creating the thread!

    I have a question, my hair in APL curly and HL stretched. While I could stretch it to make a LWB, I prefer to not put so much tension in my bleached tresses so I usually resort to a loose tails-up bun secured with a hair tie... I know that these are dreadful!
    What can I use to secure my loose bun?

    Maybe spin pins or 3 (or which ever number works) prong hair fork?

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

    Aw, I'm glad that you guys like it

    Aidin, you could also use a claw clip if you don't mind the look, or at least at home, and do a sort of peacock twist... I use the smaller ones as the big ones feel very heavy. There's also the beak clips (but half my hair escapes them and they pull).

    Thanks for your suggestions!
    I looked into them and I must say I'm drooling over the 3 prong hair forks... I guess I will ask one for Christmas ^_^

    OMG this came at the right time. I am literally studying buns this next month. I am a newbie, clearly, but with my frequent struggles in learning some of these this is SO HELPFUL

    I'm loving the idea of written instructions especially. I have non-functioning eyeballs and it's really hard to find text tutorials. I got some great ones from folks here a few months ago, but I feel like having a big thread with text and videos for all would be pretty great.

    I'm also in a huge rut with styles right now and trapped in a cinnabun/braid vortex, so amping up my arsenal would be super fun.

    Waist-length, and (grudgingly) rocking the fairytale ends. Hoping for hip by the end of 2019 with at least a semi-decent hemline. Ultimate goal of TBL...or longer.

    I remember the thread you made. I really hope you find this helpful then!
