I styled the bun with hanging ropes on my sister who has blond hair to waist...it looked fantastic!

If you can afford it and you have really long hair, you might want to try the Patrick Cameron "Dressing Long Hair" books, they have *gorgeous* updos in them.  We have them listed in the LongLocks Hairstyles Library (which is an Amazon library), but you might be able to find them somewhere like half.com for less, since they are a bit pricey.  Worth it tho!  Here's the link to the Hairstyles Library incase you want to check them out:

If I do my own hair for the prom, how can I ensure that it doesn't fall down? When I do the bun with hanging braids I keep the braids up with bobby pins, but after a while they fall out, what else can I keep them up with that will hold more securely?

to get the bobby pins to stay better use two on each hanging rope and be sure that they criss cross each other - that will keep them more secure...when I do them on my hair my hanging ropes or braids are also long enough that I can wrap some part of it over the bun as well and secure it another time there - that often helps...and while I don't usually put a rubber band on the end of the hanging rops or braids that would help make a better tacking point for the bobby pins

Ok thanks a lot, I usually just put one bobby pin to secure the braids but I'll put in two this time and criss cross them. I'm going to try it to school today  Tongue

Yay! The bun took 5 minutes to do and it lasted 7 and a half hours! I usually need to take a hairbrush and a scrunchie to school, if the style doesn't fall off (which it always does!), my hair gets frizzy or messy looking. But today it was fine all day long! And it's also relatively clean, I washed it yesterday. Grin I'm so happy that my wavy hair holds updos well!

One updo I have always liked for formal events is a knotted bun with hairsticks.I brush my hair back like I would for a HIGH ponytail,then make a knot close to my head and secure it with one or two hairsticks(like a normal bun)The length of hair is allowed to hang down freely,I think this always looks quite elegant.

I'd like to try a knotted bun. My hair is only mid back at the moment  Angry but once it's longer I will try it  Smiley. It's easy to curl my hair, I just braid it while it's damp (will work on anyone with wavy hair), and I think it would look nice with the curls hanging down.

Yeah when my hair was healthy I did often a braid to get real curls  Grin
Think a knotted bun with hair that is long enough to hang down in a ponytail after knotting must look simply gorgeous.

Ah ha - here's an easy cheat to get the same effect if your hair is not long enough for the knotted bun, but can make a sufficiently long enough ponytail:

Pull your hair into a ponytail at the desired place on your head.  Take about 1/3 of your hair and coil it around the other 2/3 to make a "bun" around the rest of your ponytail.  Secure the bun with hairsticks and if necessary bobby pins or my personal favorite for tough buns - a hair screw (though I haven't found them anywhere in a long time).  And voila - it looks like you knotted your ponytail and you still have plenty of hair left hanging for the effect!
