    Default Hairstick buns for midback-length hair?

    The only bun I've tried, which holds my hair well, is a cinnabun, and I'm getting kind of tired of it, not to mention the fact that I'm afraid all this twisting might damage my hair.

    Does anyone have suggestions for buns for midback-length hair, preferably ones held with sticks (either one or two)?
    Thanks!

    Signing up for the thread...

    I have no suggestions, I have the same problem.

    You could try the LWB (lazy wrap bun). I'm at midback and it holds with a stick, though it works better with a fork or flexi, especially with straight hair.

    Actually I do have one... it's not really a bun but that's what I do with my hair practically every day at this awkward length. I do a simple Dutch braid and I fold it back, then pin it up with at least two sticks (like X)

    Or with forks:

    I'd like to add more to my repertoire so...

    The rose bun always worked well for me. It was my staple...lol.

    Actually, I've tried it (learning from Habioku's video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTt771qkO24 ), but for some reason I can't do the part where you stick the hairstick (the hair just doesn't let it flip the other way).

    I *love* the lazy wrap bun, also the pencil bun, and the nautilus bun. A knot bun is great too.

    The ones I tend to do are various variations upon the Chinese bun:

    Traditional Chinese Bun (tutorial)



    Roped Chinese Bun (tutorial):



    Snake Bun (tutorial):



    The Woven Bun (tutorial):



    Hope some of these are helpful

    In addition to the previously suggested styles, I like the Seashell Bun and the French Pinless.

    The rose bun! That is a very pretty style, and is very secure as well. and once you have learned it, rope braiding is both quick and easy!
