I bought these to do my girls' hair for dance recital. While it took me a few times to get the hang of it, it made a beautiful bun for my oldest daughter. She has thick hair and has some shorter pieces where she has been growing out her bangs My youngest daughter has thinner hair and has long layers and it seemed harder to get hers up and the bun wasn't as perfect. I've even used it on my hair and it is definitely easier to do it to someone else than yourself!
Worked great for my Cinderella hair!
Amazing!! Oh my goodness. My daughter had her first ballet class tonight and this was a total lifesaver! Worked like a charm!!! Would definitely recommend and would definitely buy again!
While my hair has some layers so the bun isn't perfect, it still does a great job and is pretty easy to use. I needed something to keep my hair up at work that didn't pull horribly on my hairline and this rests comfortably in my hair.
I bought this for my 12 year old's birthday and she loved it! She has really long curly hair and this made for a nice quick up-do style she can manage to do herself before school. I do suggest YouTube(ing) videos to gain style options and proper use.
I buy here a lot but never took the time to actually comment on my purchases. I have long, thick hair... very long hair. I was skeptical at first because my hair is so heavy and difficult to manage that I knew this was not going to work BUT! OMG I cannot believe that it actually works great. Everyone was complimenting my hair and how beautiful and sophisticated it looked. I recomend it to anyome with "crazy" hair like mine, it really works!
Honestly, I didn’t expect these to be 100%. I’m just an average long haired girl, desperate for some sort of control over my hair. Surprisingly, these work perfect.
For those of you alive in the ninties, these are essentially two snap bracelets that are attached by fabric and hair colored. The package came with SO MANY of these, I’m not sure what to do with them. (The only way this could be better is if you could specify them all to be one shade.)
Best way to do it- put your hair into a pony tail. Then sandwich it between the two sides of the bun maker. Pull it upwards, almost to the end- for those of us with longer hair- you’ll want to leave about 3 Inches, and just roll it back until you get to your head. It may take you a time or two to get the hang of it, and also to determine what side you need to start on in order to close it.
You want the bun maker to roll closed with the opening down (under your pony tail base). Otherwise it won’t work. FYI.
I’ll post photos later. But seriously. This is amazing.
These things are super cool. I was especially happy that I could show my dad how to use it so he could do my mom's hair for her bc she can't hold her arms up over her head for very long, but he figured it out really fast. It even works with my hair, that's 30 inches long. I get some cool little pokey ends if I want them, or I can tuck them in with a few bobby pins. Stays without a rubber band, even when I take the dogs for serious hour+ long walks.
These things are totally awesome! There's definitely a learning curve, especially if you're doing it yourself, but I LOVE these! I have long, fine hair, and these are so perfect. I'm amazed at how tight you can get them, yet they don't pull my hair at all. Also, once they are snapped into place...they stay put!
It is a great find for me! I have really long hair and I used to use the same type of bun maker before，but those spent me more than $40. I lost all my magical bun makers years ago and couldn't find the same thing for a long while. When I happened to find this on Amazon I was so happy! It may not be very easy for first time user since you need time to get used to it. But once you know how it works it is super easy! for me I can make a nice and solid bun in just 15 seconds with this! There are 7 bun makers with different colors. And I don't need to worry about if I lose one. At this price for so many cute hair bands it is a steal! Love them!
By the way, if you have really long hair like me, you can braid you hair first and then make a bun - it is easier and the bun is very graceful! I am very glad I found this set! Such a great buy!
Let me just say I didn't have high hopes for these considering the mixed reviews, but they are amazing. I used it on my 9 year old (who has super thick hair) it held wonderfully. The real test was when I tried them on my own hair (thick hair as well) I do a lot of cardio workouts and this thing lasted through a full hour of high intensity cardio. I can't be anything but amazed. In fact I've had it in for the last 10 hours and it looks as good as when I first put it in. Get these, you need them
These were awesome. Took me two tries to get it done perfectly. For those having trouble, try putting your hair in a tight ponytail first and then follow the directions— worked like a charm for me!
These are fantastic and you get one in every hair color!! I gave the ones that don't match me out to my friends and we all love them. Super easy to use. Nice easy updo.
Item as described, highly recommended!
Exactly as described. I have huge amount of long smooth hair so it's difficult at first to use this item, but after many tries I managed to do it! Makes your bun look nice and is very secure.
the exact description is though is very slow, in fact the product is same as pictured.
It s very nice !
I had to get used to it how it works properly but I really like to make hair buns with it. :)
thank you very much
great product and well packed, recommend seller
Havent tried yet, looks good
These are super easy to use. My hair is medium-fine and shoulder length. I followed the directions and came out with a perfect bun that feels really secure but not tight on my head. Just figure out which way the piece bends (it’s like a snap bracelet). Love this product! It’s so simple, looks classy, and does not put stress on your hair.
I have received it, all is good. My daughter used this for a perfect bun.
Cool gadget. Very tight holds hair, also thick
A bit too yellow (I ordered cold blond) and hard to use.
Love these! They are so easy to use on days when I just don't feel like dealing with my hair. Came super quick, as well!
Nice exactly the color of my hair! Works Very good! Instrucyion attached!
