A New Variation On Figure 8 Buns
May 1st, 2007 at 1:35pm
 
Hello all, I was playing around with my hair yesterday and came up with the idea of double figure 8 buns. It's sort of like a cross between the flamenco and a figure 8.

Very cool and creative.  This would work great for people with really thick hair that have a hard time getting all their hair to stay in a single bun or figure eight.

Helloooo, Princess Leia!  Grin

How lucky to have enough hair to create such a style. My hair could never do that.  Wink

Grin I'm glad you liked it! I think you could probably do this even before your hair was long enough to do a regular figure 8... splitting the hair into two buns made mine thin enough that I got in an extra wrap... It might even be easier with thinner hair ( I don't know... unfortunately that's never been one of my problems... Huh)

And I think it would be very cute with rose clips, Sakina. If you ever decide to try it, I want pictures!

I think I need to find a new bun.. I've tried so many variations on the 8 now that it's almost rediculous. Next up,  a column of infinities going up my head! well, maybe just 2.  And to think, I was never much of one for trying new styles with my hair before this... braid, down, bun. braid, bun, down. braid, ponytail(!), bun, down. yeah.

actually, that's sorta the way it fell Undecided I just combed it straight back, split the resulting tail into two sections, and bunned..  no tricks, easy on the hair, I'm not sure if it would ever work again. Undecided sometimes life does that.
I'm glad you ladies like it though!

well your carefree part is beautiful!  maybe i will start doing that when I part my hair to style it becuase an accidental crooked part looks worse than a purposeful messy non-part! hehe!  Beautiful Smiley

OK so this is going to be one of those REALLY DUMB questions.  How do I do a figure 8 bun?  What is it?

I suck at instructions.. so I'll give a link to the ones at Long Hair Loom's styling station central.

http://www.network54.com/Forum/242462/message/1048750751/Figure+8+Bun+Instructio...

Hope that helps.

and if the bun slips sideways... well, that's got a name too: the infinity bun.

perhaps you could try doing a figure-8 as a half-up... it looks spectacular and is easier, since you're only using half as much hair, you'd get more wraps and be able to do it easier.  Hope that helps somewhat.
