Mini-Milestone: I Can Do A Figure 8 Again!

Well, just 2 weeks ago, I still couldn't make a Figure 8 Updo with my hair, but today I was able to make the bun, and secure it with just hair sticks. While it's not yet perfect as some ends are sticking out at the top, it is something I could not do again until today. Woo-hoo!

It's another one of those little milestones that lets me see my growth progress in a real way. It will take another inch or two before I have a perfect Figure 8 with no sticking-out ends, but this is still a Figure 8 and it's holding!

I've said it before, but it's these little things that make the journey so much fun.

Once I have that extra inch or two, I'll be able to make a how-to video for this hairstyle.

My Figure 8 in this photo is secured with Mei Fa Hairstyx with "Hollywood" toppers.

I did get that good night's sleep last night. While I'm still not feeling top drawer, I feel worlds better than I did yesterday, having been sleep-deprived.

Happy Friday everyone, and I wish you a wonderful weekend.

'Til tomorrow, my friends. Love to all.


  1. Gorgeous, I love it! I'm glad that you're feeling better.

  2. Good evening Franny,
    You really are talented with your hair, (don't deny it) your updo is amazing! Looking forward to the video.

    I decided not to get discouraged just yet, yes I know, practice & more practice, plus I do need more length.

    Happy to hear you're feeling much better.

    Be well,

  3. Gorgeous, Franny. But then your hair has always been gorgeous to my mind.

  4. I love this updo. So feminine and pretty! I'm new to your blog so forgive me if you've answered this a million times, but how long is your hair in this figure 8 picture? I'm at 20" with medium thickness and I can't wait to do this!


I love hearing from you.
