What are safe hair pins to use?  All I've ever seen are metal.

Where can I find bun nets?  I can find hair nets, but not bun nets.

Today my hair is more slippery than ever.  I guess I've used cones for so long I didn't think my hair could get this slippery without them.  Last night I used Biolage conditioning balm and a new non-cone leave-in conditioner.  I could not believe how smooth my hair got.  I keep feeling it.  It feels just like silk.  And it's not tangly like I thought it would be.

i think it's pretty much the same if you mean those invisible ones. you just need to wind them more than once around your bun!

Here bun nets are sold nearly everywhere where hair stuff is sold. If that's not the case in where you live...I think dancers and ballerinas consume bun nets a lot- maybe that would be a clue.  ???

I am so all over this one!  I have the ultimate thin-fine-slick hair combo.  Barrettes and ponytail-holders slide outta my hair like butter on a non-stick skillet.  But with a lot of patience, I've found some things that work.  Scunci Hair Hosiery
No Damage Elastics are fantastic.  They're made out of the same material as panty-hose and are very light weight.  I found a set of curved bobby pins, also by scunci I think, that are actually tight enough to stay in.  I also own a few wooden hair pins from www.blueheronwoods.com that actually work!  The two-prong pin (with its subtle curves) and the three-prong comb work suprisingly well for buns made of slippery hair.  Sometimes I still pull my hair up into an elastic before I wind up the bun, and slide the pin in behind it, creating a really secure bun.  Check them out!  Her work is beautiful.  When I create updos, I generally use a light spritz of Aubrey Organics Hair Missst (look mom, no plastics!) to help hold things.  It also helps if your hair is a little dirty...
