    Thanks!
    2 visible wraps around and the last wrap is slided underneath (the thin ends).
    That's what keeps it secure without pins
    When I had blunt thicker ends I did need an amish pin too keep them under

    I’ve had quite a substantial trim last week so I had to cheat with one Amish pin to stabilise. I think I’ll like this when it is longer

    Ok, everyone, I have a question when I make this bun the "traditional" way, pinning my stick/fork first and wrapping second, it all slips away if I'm actively doing things and moving around.

    If I coil the braid first and pin second, it holds like a champ. Is that technically correct for this bun? Or do I just need more length to get it to hold when pinning first? It's so pretty done properly, and is definitely a slightly different look than the way I usually do it. I ...may have a tiny bit of bun-technique insecurity!

    I think if you are wrapping afterwards you need to try to wrap it pretty tightly. Thats what I've found, anyway. I really would actually like to try it the way you described now.

    I'm not sure I'm understanding the difference. Is your "pin after" version grabbing parts of the coils in addition to the center? If not, I see no difference whatsoever in the end result.

    Either way, like cat11 mentioned, I also find that the wraps need to be fairly tight. Or at least, tight in the "right" spots, which seem to usually be behind the stick and at the end, so there's enough friction to hold it all together. Keeping the braid flat seems to matter, too; if it stands itself up, even if it's wrapped tightly, it doesn't hold as well. But the bonus is that even if it falls out, the stick doesn't, and it's a piece of cake to quickly re-wrap it again.

    Darn hair dressers and their misplaced bra straps... Looks like it'll be longer between hair cuts this time, with an extra 6 inches to regrow!
