    I had a setback a year or so ago when I was bunning all the time because my ends were getting bent up by using an ouchless hair tie to secure my ends after fanning it around a scrunchie.

    Since then I've been the spin pin only queen; however, I've always preferred my buns firmly pulled back rather than loose. The other day after running, on a whim, I pulled my hair back with a scrunchie, fanned it around then secured it with spin pins. My bun looked much fuller and now I'm not concerned about bent up ends!

    I think I may try the divachyk method of using a cut up stocking and a hair net. I saw them in Sally's yesterday and thought of her.

    Sorry for the blurry photos...

    Guess what I just bought at Sally's?

    I'll try the stocking and net tomorrow and post pics.

    quirkydimples --- :yay: I actually made a video about the cut up stocking. It will post to my blog and on YT on Sunday. I don't do many YT vids because I'm no good at it but I did do one about that topic.

    Cowashed last night then 2 - strand twisted my hair while still damp so I could go to sleep. I like the textured results from that.

    I'm on a braidout kick, but I washed my hair this morning so I'm wearing a double rope twist bun (damp) today.

    It's a little lopsided, but I was in a rush this morning.

    Another unplanned wet bun. Went to sleep on wet hair and hit the treadmill this morning. My hair is soaked!

    Thankfully I was able to fluff and stuff with the help of my trusty bun net. My nape is unruly so that's where that ugly clip comes in. :lol:

    I haven't been bunning as much and my edges have thanked me. I'm still wearing updos, just not buns.

    GeminiGem - I stalked divachyk's bunning blog on here and practiced how to stuff my hair into hair buns.

    I begin with a loose ponytail then I fluff, swirl, and stretch the net over the bun. :yep:

    Can you ladies please post the snagless bands that you use for your buns? Because my hair is bone straight my buns look sickly to me. Any suggestions?

    nakialovesshoes I did a tutorial on making pony holders with cutoff stocking (check my blog). You can always braid your hair the night before for added volume.

    I have no idea how you're even pinning these bad boys up. Very nice!

    What moisturizer do you use? Your hair always look moisturized.

    My hair is so thick that it doesn't even stay down to do cool styles like that. That's what make my hair so hard to style.

    nakialoveshoes :kiss: TY! my best work is done when I have nowhere to go and just playing in the mirror. When I try to film my efforts for my blog it's a complete fail. This style was definitely a playing around in the mirror kinda thing.

    pre_medicalrulz, TY! :kiss: I used Annabelle's Hair Creme (cookie dough scent) and sealed with avocado oil. I use good days hair pins to secure all of my styles.

    I finger parted my hair down the middle and twirled one side in a bun, pinned. Twirled the other side in a bun, pinned. I used about 8 pins total. I basically used the same technique as I would use to create one bun but just made two different buns instead. I tried to make the buns as close together as possible to keep from the finger part/scalp showing too much.

    High bunning. Stocking ponytail holder. Hair sticks hold ends in place. Hair was finger combed into the style with head bent over.
