Good luck and have fun trying (hoping for no arm-fatigue--which often happens when trying new bun-dos, at least for me. )

    ETA: another method I've used for just about any-sized barrettes (slides, etc.) is clipping (the flexi) to your scalp first, then wrapping the bun around it and tucking the tail underneath. A'la neko:

    That's my favourite way of bunning with forks and sticks.
    But with ficcares or flexis, I always make 1 twist with the braid, then secure the flexi, then wrap the rest around.
    Ficcares and flexis need a bit more hair to hold on to then only the scalphair above the braid like in the video.
    At least that's my experience :-)

    Thank you Cestlavie

    Thank you for sharing this method! I always do it with sticks and barrettes (wearing it that way now), but I wondered how to make it work with flexis and hadn't even considered doing it with ficcares!

    Lovely styles Eresh. You guys are making me reconsider exchanging it. Now, I can't make up my mind. :P

    Experiment with it
    I think you have 14 days to return it?

    I use the smaller sizes for logroll or up and down braid.
    And for centerheld buns. You make 1 turn with your braid, rope or strand, then put over the flexi, and then wrap the rest of the braid around this.

    Fingers crossed! I love dogs, especially retrievers and shepherds

    ETA: And what lovely flexis! I'll also have to keep those styles in mind for later use

    I have little hope it will be a Borzoi or other sighthound
