    Default Crooked bun on purpose (pic)

    So, my SO made me a few hairsticks out of some chopsticks for my birthday. Sweet! They are longer than my other sticks, so instead of doing the typical horizontal chinese bun and using it as a weapon, I just stuck the stick in at an angle and proceeded to wrap- albeit crooked- the bun. This pic is after a day being out, so it's frizzville, but you get the idea. Unfortunately, the ends I always leave out (notice the small hairfork off to the side) since they will not stay tucked and the bun falls apart if I don't secure it with the fork. But I liked wearing it this way! And in real life, the ends actually gave the bun a whole new look with it crooked like this!

    Sorry if this has already been done and noted here, I have not seen it or could find it in search. Anyone else twist their chinese buns?

    I kind of like it crooked. I've always thought that the Chinese Bun looks kind of what you would see if you were looking up at a toilet seat while someone was sitting on it... doing it slanty makes it looks less like a butt, IMO.

    Also, your hairstick is gorgeous.

    Rofl, great, now in my head it will be dubbed the "butt-crack bun" forever.

    ETA: Your bun looks great!!! And that hairstick is to die for.............sorry I got distracted by the potty humor.

    LMAO too. Ages ago some of us were calling it "the hoohah bun". I like it better this way with the little tail to the side.
