I didn’t mean to mislead you. I really am going to give you my favorite techniques to achieve awesome buns. But I am talking about hair buns. Summertime is the best time to perfect your bun-making skills, but you may use these tips year round.
Spinning isn’t just for exercise anymore
The simplicity of a hair bun is deceiving. The finished product tends to appear effortless and easy, but without the right tools, the process may be difficult. Bobbi Pins are amazing. But I can’t seem to remove one without ripping a couple of strands of my very fine hair. When I discovered the Spin Pin, I was optimistic that it could offer a viable alternative. It turned out to be a life changer!
The Spin Pin has allowed me to go from rarely donning a bun to pulling my top knot together without even looking in a mirror. Twist your hair up and twirl it into a bun wherever you would like it to be… a high ballerina bun or a low bun at the nape of your neck. It doesn’t matter. Take your first Spin Pin and gently twist it into your bun. Next, take your second Spin Pin and twist it into your bun until the two pins intersect. If you want a messy, casual bun, pull the hair apart a little bit to give it some dimension. Spin Pins are sold in twos and are $7.29 at Walgreens.
Try Hairigami instead of Origami
Hairigami is a little-known product but a favorite of ballerinas around the world. Do you remember slap bracelets from your childhood? The concept is similar and creates a beautiful and easy bun. Pull your hair up into a ponytail at whatever height you desire. Sandwich your hair in between the Hairigami and pull it down towards the end of your ponytail. Roll the Hairigami up and then bend to close it and form your bun (this is the slap bracelet part). Fan your hair out over the Hairigami as necessary to cover it. Your bun will be beautiful and secure! You can purchase this product for about $5 at All About Dance
Hot Buns for a Hot Summer
Hot Buns are one of the best products I have ever used. The Hot Bun will allow you to create a beautiful bun even if your hair is super fine like mine. This awesome bun maker is available in different shades and sizes which is very convenient. Pull your hair into a ponytail wherever you want your bun to be. Position your Hot Bun at the end of your pony and roll up. Fold in the bun maker, which resembles a caterpillar, snap closed and then secure with the built in elastic. Lastly, fan your hair out to ensure that the Hot Bun is covered. I think you will love the way your bun looks! Find this product on Amazon for about $10.
