No Pins Bun w/Photos

June 20 2012 at 11:33 PM

Here is my "No Pins Bun" (as my brother calls it) with photo instructions. It is easy and gives our length a "break" from pins, barrets, and the like. Please let me know how it works for you. I Love this site.

Step 1: Gather hair into a pony (low, med, high)

Step 2: Twist

Step 3: Wrap as if making a regular "cinnamon bun"

Step 4: Pull length through center of bun (here you length comes into play.)
If it is short pull through completely, if really long (mine is 44+) loop and leave a bit of ends
out of the bottom bun curl

Step 5: Wrap rest of length (or looped length) around again

Step 6: Push through the center to "lock" length in bun

Step 7: Finished bun should be snug but full (depending on thickness etc) it may take a bit of
practice but once you get the hang of it this will become a "quick do" for work, or swimming,
showering, or even sleep.

Hope this helps and thanks for your patience as I learned how to do this new thing.

Happy growing fellow Rapunzels!
