„Things not to say to long-haired people“ #1

lazy wrap bun

There are a couple of things people tend to say to persons with longer hair, that they should not be saying 😉

In this series I will pick up on some of those phrases and questions – so you never have to say them yourself!

Phrase #1 (usually said when opening a bun):

“It’s amazing how you can fit all that hair into such a small bun!”

Never tell a long haired person how small their bun looks!

There are so many ways to simulate more volume when wearing buns, like wrapping the hair around a sock or by backcombing it. Usually none of this is done by people who try to grow their hair the healthiest way possible.

We use hair sticks or forks and usually don’t fake any volume to our buns. So compared to the many other bun styles out there, our buns tend to look small. Most people do not know how much hair it takes to create big, voluminous buns.

So even if a bun looks small, there can be a lot of hair tucked beneath it. And believe me, being told about their small bun size is one of the last things a long haired person wants to hear about…

Are there any phrases or questions about your hair that you get tired of hearing? Let me know and I will include them in this series!
