    Yes, one I can easily participate in! I do various comet buns all the time lately, including a comet knot bun. I'll have to see if I can get a picture to post.

    This is an older picture, I haven't done one in a while.
    Good idea to try again this summer

    I secured the knot with a flexi size M

    I imagine I will have the same issue I have with my version-- in mine, the bun starts to loosen, rotates, and then I get the sag and sometimes it also turns so that my hairpins are digging into my head. This will probably do something similar... (I don't know that my hair is considered "slippery," but it's the same effect.)

    So after my success yesterday I've been unable to do the comet knot. Looks like I need a little more length.

    I did it with a cinnamon bun while I was at home lounging but I don't like the taper of my ponytail lol. Although in today's fashion my ponytail would look great if backcombed, curled and texturised but then I don't do these things. :P maybe I will post a pic tomorrow with all 3 cinnamon, lwb and knot versions
    Well I don't have [volume on the] crown because I'm not a queen.

    I did this before going to bed. The knot slipped down during the night and finally slipped out as I got out of bed.

    I didn't even bother; my slick hair sometimes doesn't even stay up with sturdy 5-prong forks. You might want to use a few zillion pins, that's what I'd try if it were important to have some measure of success.
