    :O oh yay, a 2-stick bun! I've not learned any 2-stick buns yet; I shall give it a go right away.

    Edit: Haahahahaha, nope! Too thin, too much taper, too compressible, too much wrapping, OR too loose. Oh well.

    Growing back to definite-calf length with hopefully some semblance of a hemline.
    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness

    Well, that requires a lot more hair that I currently have, maybe more hair than I'll ever have again.

    I tried this several times yesterday with different results every time!
    If I do it exactly as in the video, my ends poke out.
    If I bring the loop down and to the opposite side, it traps the ends and it holds better. Maybe it depends where your ends end up?
    I'm not a fan so far but I'm not giving up yet.

    ETA: Here's a sideways pic.

    No way, I can't even do a celtic knot haha. It's very pretty though. I don't have enough hair.

    Did someone say thin and compressible? Feeeeeeeble. I'll stick to edible brioches.

    Haartraum's video is helpful as well. Sometimes I have to watch the same bun done by three different people just to get the concept.



    This was my result when I tried a modified version (wrapping the hair around three fingers instead of my whole hand):


    It doesn't look the same at all...I might have to try it again.

    Hmm looks a bit confusing. I might try it though. The problem is every single time I have to wrap around three fingers or so it never works. My hands and my fingers are too small and it always ends up slipping. I might cheat and do it with my hair braided like I did for the Spock bun.
