    I can't! Too short right now. Hopefully in the future I'll be able to! I'm not totally sure, though. When I had BSL hair, it was too thick with a lot of layers and wouldn't stay. This might sound weird, but I think it's so fun to watch when someone just twists their hair up into a bun without any pins, ties, etc. Maybe that's just me...

    Yes I can. I do a cinnamon bun and then poke the ends under and through the middle 'hole' if that makes sense. It holds for about an hour and then works loose so it's handy if I need to put it up quickly for a short while. My hair's quite wurly, maybe the texture helps it to hold.

    I can do it in two ways. And my hair is very slipery. I twist it up and start like a cinnabun, I make the second coil under the first coil, then take the ends up and pull a loop through the middle of the first coil. I do this at work all the time when I get hot, and it stays indefinately. When it was shorter I went once around and pulled a short loop of the ends through the first coil.
    I can also do it if my hair is tangled using the bee butt method, I flip all my hair upside down and twist the mess into a coil, then wrap each successive coil under the previous, until I'm wrapping just the tangled twisted tiny end underneath. The ends get pinched between the bun and my head, I think the tangled part increases the friction. This is also easy to do with wet hair - as long as it isn't combed out yet. It's my wet bunning method.

    I get a kick out of seeing this resurface from time to time XD

    I can still do this, but it doesn't stay very long, and the loop part is longer and loopier, so it's less like a bun than a folded ponytail held by a cinnamon bun.
    Note: My starting length of APL is from long before I'd ever heard of the LHC. That's just when I started consciously growing my hair out again.

    I often do a Nautilus/Inside-out bun. I think there's one in my photo album.

    This morning I tried the Niente Bun, which I hadn't done before. I just took photos a few moments ago. I've been wearing it for 4 hours, and it shows no sign of loosening (although it could have been neater).

    Me, too. I poke it through, but not all the way, like a true knot. Curly hair holds better.

    Oh Goodness I wish I could. The Naughty Mess doesn't tolerate anything more then the sticky silicone hair ties I have been using and that's only because he hasn't figured out how to eat them. It is a rare day when I can make it through work and not have to touch my hair at all to fix something or another.

    hmm....I have all kinds of crazy layers. But then, I always have product in it, gel or mousse.

    Yes, I can do that at my current length, but I dont like it. I need hairtoys because I love them.
    A nice​ bun makes the day.
