Default Buns

I can never do bun with just one scrunchy. I put my hair in a ponytail, then do a bun. Like this:

It's quite obvious my scrunchy shows, as well as my other elastic, but it's the only way my hair will stay unless I just do a folded bun, like do a ponytail but don't put the hair all the way through.

My question, does it look weird? Since it shows the scrunchy. I quite like it but would like opinions.

I personally dislike it when my hair ties show in buns, but it's all a matter of personal preference. I don't think it looks bad per se on other people, or maybe I just realize it's one of those things that's up to personal preference and really doesn't matter.

In any case if I'm going to put my hair up and have something show, I'd much rather use something pretty. A nice clip, slide, flexi-8, ficcare (or fakeare), or hair sticks (if your hair is long enough) looks much better I think.

When I put my hair up in a bun, instead of a scrunchie, I use those little black elastics (without metal). I'll put my hair up into a ponytail with one elastic, then use a second elastic to secure the bun part. Neither really shows that way, especially if it's a messy bun.

When I used to use scrunchies, I would use the scrunchie to secure the bun part, making it more like a "decoration."

I managed to get it to look decent this way.
