I haven't had hair long enough for yonks! When I did I just pulled it back into a ponytail, better if hair is a bit damp. Would then braid/plait pony and then wound around into bun. Holding carefully while putting pins in place. Pretty simple, but I do think it takes practice. I would wear buns a lot in High School...many moons ago :roll:

Yes, just tuck it under the bun and make sure you stick a pin where that end piece has been tucked into. That's about all I can advise you with. Practice, practice, practice! :wink:

Ha! Did lots of buns before - i think im an expert, but isnt it rather difficult to explain here?? :lol: Anyway, here I give it a try:

For French Twist.
Twist your hair. Tucked your twisted hair up - hide the end of the twist between head and the Twist if you dont want your Twist has tail. Pin from below, as if you sew along the hair. Now push the head of the pin (which should be facing downward) upward, and push into the Twist.

For round bun.
Twist your hair. Bun it as if you want to make a traditional bun. Pin from left or right, as if you sew along the hair. Now push the head of the pin to opposite direction, and push the pin into the Bun (if you start from left, your pin's head will end up on right side, and vice versa).

For both, two-legs pin is better than one-leg chop-stick-like pin. Zig-zag-legged-pin is better than straight-legged pin.

Dont get it? :lol: Why dont try googling? Maybe they have one with pictures on it? Or you can buy pin (ex.: from Chomel) and ask the girl to show you the trick. Or else, ask hairstylist to do your hair, and make sure you learn the trick from him/her.

What does it mean: so chim? :D

When you use the pin, use it as if you 'sew' along the hair, then move the pin to opposite direction. Refer to my previous post, if you wanna french twist, you should start 'sew' from bottom of your twist, then after sewing, swing the head of the pin to the top of the twist, and push it all through the hair. For round bun, you can start sew from left or right, it's up to you.

As for the pin, I dont like those small tiny black pins. I prefer use a big pin with nice head, and that's all, only one pin.

I think I cant explain more :D Think the best way, as I said, visit a pin store, pretend you wanna buy, and ask the girl to show you how to use it. I once saw a Chomel girl did that for her customer.
