It’s no secret that my favourite up do is the braided Nautilus bun.
Hypnotica has instructions here for a non-braided version:
I have put it on my to do-list to make a tutorial for my adaptation so I wont go into detail here.
The nautilus bun in itself is almost self stabilising and the braided version is even more so because the “bumps” of a braid offers more slipping-resistance. Even without securing the bun with anything, I would have to jump up and down several times to shake the bun loose and even then, it does so hesitantly and gradually. Once it’s been set in place with a toy, it won’t budge. Also, the bun in itself is very flat and hugs your skull which is very convenient and helps prevents headaches. It’s perfect for the gym!
I prefer to secure it with a Flexi 8.
