This is a fun style that is a new twist on an old style. This bun starts off just like any other, by gathering your hair into a low/mid pony tail. You are going to make your first coil just off center. You only wrap around once, or depending upon how you look at it, just a signle up and down.


Once you have that first coil started, place a pin in.

(Note, it's good to start with the pins. Later, once you are more comfortable with this style, you can skip the pins and use a Ficcare styled clip alone)

Once the first coil is wrapped and pinned, bring the next coil up right next to it, rather than around it like you would in a regular bun, kepping your finger in the center of the coil and wrapping around that.


I like to keep my figer in the middle of the second coil while pinning to help keep it in place.


You wrap the third coil just like the first two, but depending on your hair length, you can wrap this last one until your ends are wrapped under. Tuck any ends beneath the rolled hair, pin in place.


You now have the Tri-Coil bun.


This style is easy to change giving you different looks. In this picture I brough the coils up at a slight angle, making the first coil a bit larger than the second, and the second a bit larger than the last. You would do this by making the first coil a bit looser, the next one not quite as loose, and the last one tight.


This is a Tri-Coil bun secured with only a Ficcare type clip. This is a very secure way to hold this style. Wrap each coil and hold with the flat of your hand, slide Ficcare in while hand keeps coils secure. If you have trouble with that, use some pins or clips to hold the coils in place until you have your Ficcare in.


Please note, longer hair will be able to make more coil than the three shown here. If you only want the three, you may have to experiment on wrapping twice on each coil, or depending on how the thickness of your hair length goes, perhaps double wrapping only the last two coils.

For shorter hair, you might make only two coils. Just experiment! It's a fun variation of the regular bun.

I don't think I can do 3 coils yet though.

Do you think hair styx would work?

Karen Marie could have umpteen coils with this style!!!

It might be hard to hold this style with hair sticks alone. Perhaps hair sticks combined with pins. Or hair sticks slid in sideways from both sides might work.

I'm glad you like it!

To create the half up tri-coil, section your hair by taking your thumbs and placing them pointing upward in front of your ears. (Your fingers will be beside your head and if you wiggle them, you'll be making a funny face!) Slide your thumbs straight up until you reach center. With this section of hair, follow the tri-coil instructions. You may wish to use bobby pins for these coils since they are smaller and have a harder time holding with the Goof Hair Days pins. You can use a ficcare if you like.

For a vintage look, part your hair from ear to ear, going up and over, as in the "Half Up" directions. Make your coils and pin in place.

Your next section will be from ear to ear, but going across and around, rather than up. Make another set of tri-coils, pin in place, catching the coil above it and sliding down into the new coil. Just remember that when doing this style, you do not need to worry about keeping a nice striaght line each time. The movement and placement of the coils will create various looks.

Use your last section, again making a tri-coil, catching the above coil and sliding your pin into the next. I admit that mine looked more like a sigle coil for some reason, but I did three! I did it without looking in the mirror, so I think that is why my coils did not stay in straight lines, which in the end, I liked.

If you want to add a touch of romance to the mix, get some paper mini-flowers from the craft section of your store. They are set on bendable wires. Fold the wires in half, making sure the straight end is up near the flower so it won't catch in your hair. Slide bent loop into the center of a few of your coils.

For the tri-coils, it only takes a few minutes, really! Once you know how to do the single tri-coil, the others are really just repeating that process and pinning. The more you practice, the faster it gets. It makes for great hair styles when you are late, so don't ever stop trying!

Starting my growing journey all over again after health issues took a major toll on my hair.
17/25.5/35+ - Type 2C-3bMii Somewhat fine, wavy (with corkscrew curls on the underneath layer), natural color is light brown with gold and red highlights. Previously used henna for years, but had it highlighted out over a couple of years. Currently trying to decide what to do as far as continuing with that to keep up the roots or doing something different.

Products Used:
Aubrey Organics S&C - my most favorite, but currently using Neways Second Chance Shampoo, SheaMoisture's High Porosity Moisture-Seal Masque,
Sally Beauty Generic Value Product's version of Matrix Biolage conditioner (as a leave in, not rinsed out)
Aubrey Organics Chia Gel
Vinegar/herbal rinses
Oils: Jojoba, Castor, Coconut & essential oils
MP Popular Mix Brush
MP & Madora wide tooth combs
Vitamins/Minerals/Herbal supplements

This is a fun style that is a new twist on an old style. This bun starts off just like any other, by gathering your hair into a low/mid pony tail. You are going to make your first coil just off center. You only wrap around once, or depending upon how you look at it, just a signle up and down.


Once you have that first coil started, place a pin in.

(Note, it's good to start with the pins. Later, once you are more comfortable with this style, you can skip the pins and use a Ficcare styled clip alone)

Once the first coil is wrapped and pinned, bring the next coil up right next to it, rather than around it like you would in a regular bun, kepping your finger in the center of the coil and wrapping around that.


I like to keep my figer in the middle of the second coil while pinning to help keep it in place.


You wrap the third coil just like the first two, but depending on your hair length, you can wrap this last one until your ends are wrapped under. Tuck any ends beneath the rolled hair, pin in place.


You now have the Tri-Coil bun.


This style is easy to change giving you different looks. In this picture I brough the coils up at a slight angle, making the first coil a bit larger than the second, and the second a bit larger than the last. You would do this by making the first coil a bit looser, the next one not quite as loose, and the last one tight.


This is a Tri-Coil bun secured with only a Ficcare type clip. This is a very secure way to hold this style. Wrap each coil and hold with the flat of your hand, slide Ficcare in while hand keeps coils secure. If you have trouble with that, use some pins or clips to hold the coils in place until you have your Ficcare in.


Please note, longer hair will be able to make more coil than the three shown here. If you only want the three, you may have to experiment on wrapping twice on each coil, or depending on how the thickness of your hair length goes, perhaps double wrapping only the last two coils.

For shorter hair, you might make only two coils. Just experiment! It's a fun variation of the regular bun.
