    Either a topknot gibralter bun (IIRC the name) held with a single short stick, or a low orchid bun held with a fairly short 2-prong hair fork. In fact that low orchid bun has recently become my sleeping bun.
    Opting out of Friend Requests, thank you very much!

    A Ficcare clip? I just had my braid up in one.

    I do have a ficcare I rarely wear, I should try it again. I’ve never gotten the hang of it, always pulls on a strand of hair in a weird way and the metal is quite heavy, but they are so popular with long hairs that I’m convinced it must be user error. Thanks for the suggestion.
    At my goal length of Classic after 2.5 years here at the LHC.

    Yes, there is a learning curve and I still struggle with mine! I found this folded braid by Hypnotica to be the most secure so far. I insert the Ficcare over the 'loop' like she does, and if there's extra braid it gets wound around it.

    Usually braided. I used to always just do a ponytail, but now the hair has gotten too long and poofy for that, so I need something to contain it better.

    A braid or a Cinnabutt bun, more often than not held with a Ficcare Max. I do occationally feel like I should give my sticks and forks some love too, but in later years they've mostly just adorned my bathroom
