    Default Orchid Bun - instructions?

    I've on a big updo flow here! I'm having a lot of fun trying out new updos, but I can not remember how to do the orchid bun!

    Can somebody help me??

    Oooh I just did it and it's way more comfortable than a regular cinnamon bun. Some one else had recommended it to me but I didn't understand it before. Thanks for the link Raederle! It looks like a crooked figure 8 on me, but actually is staying. You have no idea how happy this makes me.

    Thank you for sharing the link Raederle and thanks to Hypnotica for asking the question! I've been really wondering about this bun and couldn't find instructions anywhere.

    There's also what we agreed was the "Orchid wrap" on TBB a few months ago. Link to the thread.

    Thanks for posting the link - my BSL curls aren't long enough for the infinity or a figure 8, but they're just barely perfect for an orchid bun!

    Oh so that's called an orchid bun? I've been doing that for ages and called it a shortcut figure-8, because you don't need to twist as much and don't need as much length to make this bun. I like to put a Ficcare over it.

    Well, I'm glad the link was helpful. This is one style that looks different every time I try it.
