This looks different depending upon which way you start it out - up & over or down & under or crossing 1st. Does that make sense?  Anyway, I prefer the way it looks in the first 2 pics when I cross under first.

I tried this bun a few weeks ago. It looked nothing like your big bun! Your hair is outstanding! What does your ponytail measure to have all that hair?

I am really struggling with this style....I think it's partially because the hairstick that I was using wasn't long enough...

It just seemed that I would get the two sections of hair either draped over the top of the stick, or brought up and under the stick (I tried both ways), and then I was out of stick, so when I would attempt to wrap the rest of my hair around, it wouldn't stay.
Am I doing something wrong?

Your Chinese bun is fantastic....

It might be that the stick you are using isn't long enough.  I have to use one of my longer sticks for this style.  Also, maybe try to do it tighter at first.  I have to have the tension tight when I start out to not only "hold" the stick in place, but also so I have enough room to wrap all my hair around.  Let me know how it goes.

Lori, it's beyond me how you manage to do such magnificent buns! So interesting and just beautiful!
Unfortunately, I have no decent Chinese bun pics... I'll have to take some soon.


Nov 2009 Apr 2010 a great hair day

Routine:

Hair type: 2b/M/C/iii
Current length: classic+
Current goal: knee

Current routine:
~ alternating a NW/SO (no water/sebum only) routine with occasional washes. I use the techniques of NW/SO (brushing, scritching and preening) almost daily, but I do a shampoo wash every month or two.

Products and tools:
~ Alverde Birke-Salbei shampoo
~ occasionally oiling the ends with either coconut or almond oil; currently experimenting with argan oil
~ an assortment of BBBs
~ Tangle Teezer/Tangle Angel & wide-tooth comb
~ hair friendly hair toys, for putting up hair and forgetting about it
