I've been wearing buns since I started transitioning. I occasionally wear it down, so I'm down for the challenge. The weather is too hot right now for me to be wearing my hair down.

I've been wanting to join the summer bun challenge since the thread started but I didn't think my hair was long enough. I was kind of right but I figured out a workaround. The front of my hair is what's shorter so I did flat twists in the front and a bun with the back. So, I'm in!
I work weekends and I have a problem with people at work constantly touching my hair so I will be bunning on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday and then wearing my hair out the remaining three days of the week.

Yea I hear you. I started using coconut oil a month ago & I'm in love w/it! & yes I also need some new bun ideas myself...I really wish I knew how to cornrow or do flat twists so I could braid/twist up the front & then pull it all into a bun...well I guess I just discovered my new natural hair research topic!
I've been hunting YT for ideas. I haven't found anything I really want to do.

I was actually about to do a google search myself. If I find anything interesting I will definitely share.

Heck, I've been bunning non-stop since < day 1. I may wear my hair out Friday depending on the weather.

I'm thinking box braids more than likely.

It sounds like we all need to get together and come up with some bunning styles. I found a really good one from The Fiesty House Blog. She does a double side bun. It is really cute.

I noticed other people having issues uploading photos using the app.

I'm getting bored with my buns myself. I think I'm going to do a henna/indigo gloss treatment tonight, deep condition and wear my hair out tomorrow for the first time in almost two weeks. I want to try some new products on WnG.

^^Cute!

Yesterday, I wore a basic bun. Well, I found a bug in it after my morning walk. So last night I decided to make a bun cover. That is how I am wearing it today, at least until after my walk.

Had my hair down for one day out of the weekend. Now it is in a twisted bun. Must have it down for daughter's graduation.

My twists were a fail. I knew that they would be. Twists never last in my hair. They always unravel. Oh well, today I am going to try mrsjaxn84's flat twists and bun.
