    Aww. That is one of the (few) advantages of having thinner hair! It's not like you iiis need the illusion of bigger buns anyway
    Length goal well and truly met, now just seeing how it grows ...
    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness

    I know. Evidently I didn't sufficiently communicate the spirit of jest, sorry

    Success at last! Iíve had a lot of trouble with getting the top loop loose enough to get a fork in comfortably without the bottom being so loose that it a) slips out entirely, or b) just lets the whole thing slowly rotate free.

    Messing with them before wrapping the tail seems to have been the answer. I like that itís bigger, my hair compacts a lot considering how much of it there is.

    My hair is also to short/thick to do this properly but I managed an approximation by using a trick that TorrinPaige has on YouTube.

    You basically divide your hair as if you're doing a half up, make what ever bun with the top section, and then wrap the remaining hair up. Depending on what your hair's like and what you're using to hold the bun you may need some pins or something. I don't think Torrin needed any in the video.

    Well, yeah but then that is not quite a spock bun anymore. I tried again today but with fresh washed wavy hair is even harder, I have small hands with small fingers, it just does not hold all the hair while I am wrapping around,

    Ligeia Noire, would it be easier to hold if you did it as a braided Spock bun? At least as a way to practice and play with it until you find better handholds for you, without your gorgeous mane just escaping from your grasp?

    Just a thought
