You Got Buns, Hun.

These buns haunted me on Pinterest for a long time.

They just seemed perfectly impossible to me.
I would always look at it and wonder...
how the heck they could do that.

This illusive, messy up-do
had been plaguing me in 
a very harsh "first world pain" manner,
and I eventually wrote it off as a perk for thin hair.

Until one fateful day.

I walked past these funny things in a bowl, 
picked one up and looked at it like it was a bizarre archeological find.

What is this?
What purpose does it serve?
Why would a factory agree to produce these?

And then the lightbulb went off...
and finally understood the physics 
behind those perfect little do's.

Some may call it a sock bun-
but for those of you who have asked about mine,
it's a sponge donut.

Or something like that.

It's basically an implant for your hair.

I actually don't know what it's called.

But in all it's ghetto fabulousness...
they work like a charm!

I love it,
and it's super simple...
just make a high pony tail, pull it through the ring,
splay your hair around it... and tuck it under. 

So easy, right?

I've been handing them out to my friends
and we love them...
and after such universal success...
 I bought some for you!

I only could find the blonde color first,
and you couldn't tell at all, even though I'm a brunette...
my hair is thick and long so it covered it easily.

So if you hair is a dark blonde
or light brown... either one should work
unless you don't have a ton of hair.





*If you live in the states, 
I'm going to ship these back 
when I'm stateside the week after Christmas
a.k.a... don't plan your New Years Party look over it. :)


  1. Hadn't heard of these. Very cool. I don't think I'd have enough hair to cover, (insert sad face & wish for thick hair for the billionth time). My daughter has enough hair for both of us so she would probably love these. Hope your Christmas was awesome!

  2. ugh those buns. I've been lusting over them too. Unfortunately I have the thinnest hair known to mankind :(

  3. AHH! i need to get my hands on one of these suckers. i love the big bun but my natural bun is a little flat.. SOLD! xo

  4. this is amazing! I had been admiring your bun for quite some time!

  5. This is so simple and brilliant! I can't wait to try one!

  6. Woohoo!! I just ordered one! Can't wait to try! I've had "bun-envy" for awhile too and wondered how people did it!! So excited!

  7. My ballet students use these all the time! Great find- nice buns!

  8. Yeah, I totally bought these a few months. It's somewhere in my coffee table drawer. I'm seriously hair-do impaired. I can't even a bun with these thingy ma-bobs. So, what I'm saying is…can you do a tute with these? :) Hope you had a very Merry Christmas!!

  9. I couldn't figure out how to make a bun like that, thank you for the advice!

  10. Oooooo I have blonde hair and would love one of those! No wonder I couldn't do the cute high-bun look by myself! I need a donut!

  11. I watched the video from Pinterest and bought a thin sock to try it out, and it worked like a charm. I LOVE it!

  12. I love these! Been using them for a while for ballet and evening outings! Perfection!

  13. These are so cool! I I love the look of that perfect bun. I just watched two different YouTube videos on this and want to try it out, even though my hair is already decently thick... thanks for the tip!!

  14. I am dying to know where to buy these in london...

  15. What a sneaky trick! Great find.

  16. Oh goodness that is such a great tool. If you happen tofind another one I would love love one in brunette of course!! My email is simplysouherngirl (at) gmail (dot) com

  17. I wore that style for my wedding (10 years ago -eeeK!) and used the donut. So great but I am too much of a spaz to be able to recreate it on my own. There always seems to be some bit of donut sticking out no matter how much I poof up my hair. But I absolutely love the look.
