I've been trying a new bun each month but with not a lot of success. However today I've managed to do a French Twist, Artemis Bun, and now this latest one, the "Stay Put Bun". Pictures are also on the 1000 Days of Hair blog:
My pictures aren't that great (my arms aren't long enough to get a decent shot of the back of my head) but hopefully they'll inspire someone to give it a go. It has a lovely knotted appearance that hasn't really shown up in the pics.

'Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfailing beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.' 1 Peter 3:3-4
