    How short is your hair exactly...I can't really tell from your pic. I have been growing my hair out since July 10 and even though I have cut about 4inches off my hair my longest layer is bk to my shoulders.

    I too had the problem of not wanting to use a doughnut bun but I did want the added look of fullness so a few days before wash day I took out my bantu knots (I usually put my hair in four sections to do everything) & put my hair in 4 little puff balls tucked under.

    I then took a piece of pantyhose and used that as my hairband and wrapped it around my puffs twice and not only did it pull them together into a bun but it also gave my hair the look of thickness that I wanted as well.

    I now do this every week when I take out my bantu knots.

    You can do a high pony tail that isn't tight and use bobby pins to clip the pony tail in a bun. If you don't want the pin(s) showing use small bobby pins.

      You Tube is a great tool to learn new hair styles or consult a natural hair stylist.
