I'm Asian with very straight and VERY thick hair. I've just recently joined the Air Force and I need to learn how to tie my hair in a really tight bun to prevent any hairs from falling when I'm in boot camp. My hair is long (a few inches past my shoulders) and I've tried following videos on YouTube but it never feels secure unless I use more elastics which is time-consuming. I also tried the sock bun, but what do I do with the excess hair? Pinning it down with bobby pins have only stretched them out to the point that I have to discard them after just one use, and even when I do use them the hair is never secure. Any suggestions? Perhaps a site with a thorough tutorial, or preferably a video? I'd like to be able to do a bun that's quick and easy, considering there's very little time to get ready in boot camp.
