Thanks so much for posting the pics and the link for the directions to this bun - I love it! I'm new here & just starting to experiment with buns. I was able to do this style easily the first time I tried it and it looks beautiful.
I was especially surprised to find out that it actually holds in place in my hair without using bobby pins or hair sticks! I've got thick, naturally curly hair (3a/b), and I've been wearing this bun around all day without using a single thing to keep it in place. I think it's something I could do at work without using a mirror, which is a plus because I often find myself wanting to put my hair up as the days goes by and I often forget to bring anything along to hold it up.
