Surely I can't be the only one that struggles with getting that big, beautiful, ballerina bun. I've tried the sock method, and sometimes it works, sometimes it is a complete failure. I needed something quick and easy. I was looking in the hair section of my local Wal-Mart, and I stumbled upon this little device. It was $5, and I thought, "might as well give it a try." I wanted something to use on second day hair that will still look cute and chic.
The Perfect Bun by Remington has wire encased in foam, with a hole in the center. (See photo). The idea is to pull your hair into a ponytail, slip the hair through the hole, twist and bend the foam piece into a bun shape.
I had some reservations when using this because I have layers in my hair. This works for me! I couldn't believe how simple it was!
I have been using this on second day hair. I like this because it has texture from the day before. I spray some dry shampoo at my roots, and just a tiny bit on my length. I teased my hair just at the roots and pulled it into a high ponytail. Then I inserted my hair through the hole, pulled it through so my ends were sticking out and rolled. As I was rolling I spread my hair out so it wouldn't be concentrated to one area. Once I was done rolling I bent the roller into a bun shape, and continued to spread my hair around the roller. I secured my bun with a few bobby pins (it needed it!) and that was it!
I absolutely love this little tool, and it makes a perfect bun. In my opinion, this was money well spent. You can find the Perfect Bun maker at Wal-Mart.
