  1. #1

    Default Your bun is not sitting perfectly, a bit to one side.. now what?

    If this happens to me on a work day.. Oh arghhh I can drive myself bonkers with retrying until I finally get it right!

    What about you? Does your do have to be perfect.. or?

    No. I'm lazy. I simply put in asymmetric hairsticks and that's it. Or I pull the upper part out and make it look messy.

    After a number of hours, I have to open a bun anyway and make it nice again.

    But in my workplace, there is no need for a polished look, so I don't count...

    As long as the hair is still contained in the bun I'm ok with it no matter how much it travels.

    I admire you! That is for sure. I want it to be pretty much perfect. I don't have much time to redo it during the day, so that also plays a part

    My buns are alway off to the left side. I try to make it closer to the right to no avail. It actually works out ok this way because I insert the stick/fork with my right hand so the top ends up on the right. The head of the fork/stick balances out the lobsided bun and make the overall look more centered.

    believe it or not- I am anal about how my bun sits.Yes,the one in my siggy is very messy but it's sitting right.And it was put up by a hair fork and for once,didn't fall.I was super proud.

    anyway-I do sit there and redo and redo my bun untill its just right.

    I'm the same. It drives me mental. I have to have it central. Even worse is if it starts to come out while at work; I have to rush to the loos, and you know it's never going to be central or comfortable if you're rushing and getting paid... I usually end up very angry and in a ponytail if that happens! (I'm a waitress at my SU. So it's not even like it's important!)

    It can be messy, have no problems with that, but it has to be in the middle, no doubt about that

    If I can't get mine to sit properly and neatly, I end up heading to work with my hair down... or taking the late bus in.
