    When I first voted all this time ago (lol), I said I switched between 3 updos. I still have 3 in my arsenal (that I know well), the logroll/peacock twist, the LWB and the Nautilus. So little changes over time.

    I can do several types of bun but I always do a nautilus. It's the most comfortable to me.
    somewhere shorter than classic

Unfortunately, my length makes many coils around the centrepiece now, so I'm experimenting with looping the hair over my whole hand once or even twice to use up more in the inverted section.
    Thank you very much, I am doing the ABC Bun Challenge and I’m watching closely to all available bun options, when I come across Pha or Orchid bun, I will keep this for reference and check back to see if they fit the description. I’m just very excited to explore so many new styles and learn new things every day!

    Just two at the moment. A classic ballerina bun, or a pineapple bun, where I just make a ponytail with a scrunchie and pull it almost all the way through. If I want to make the pineapple bun cuter, I leave more of the ends out, curl them, and arrange them on top of my head kinda how Pamela Anderson used to do her updo.

    I want to try the rose bun; it looks pretty!!

    Huh, more than I thought. In order of frequency:
    Nessa Bun
    LWB
    Nautilus
    And semi-regularly, usually my 'leaving the house and want to make an effort' go-to (or even 'wanting to feel like I made an effort for a Zoom call', the Spock Bun.
    Length goal well and truly met, now just seeing how it grows ...
    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness

    Technically I always do the same bun, it just changes positions (i.e. back of my head, side of my head)
