- Simply pull pony tail through donut and pin hair to achieve the look you want
- Easy to use
I ordered this product last week and it came very quickly (Within 2 days). I’m active duty military and you have to have your hair up if it is longer than your collar. (I have shoulder length hair that is kinda thick.) This product makes it much easier to do that. Its made out of this plastic mesh material that really holds on to your hair. I would reccomend to make a ponytail before you put the “doughnut” on just to give it some extra stability, but I would reccomend this product for anyone.
Better than a sock
My sister got me into “sock buns” a few weeks ago and though I loved the idea of it, the socks just didn’t hold very well. This hair donut however, is awesome. It’s made of this grippy-meshy material that does a much better job of ‘grabbing” my hair. I still had to practice before I was able to make ‘perfect buns’ – but it was well worth it.The trick for me was to:1) NOT look in the mirror because that always messed me up for some reason2) Roll the donut down while making sure to push my hair in the donut to keep it tight3) NOT adjust it while rolling it down – I did this at the end4) Keep rolling when I thought I was done rolling, I rolled it once more5) THEN I would adjust my hair and bring the gap closed…sometimes I need a bobby pin or twoIf my hair acts up, I sometimes run my hand under some water and pull down on my pony tail to lightly wet my hair – this isn’t always needed when my hair decides it wants to behave!I finish the look off with a head band most times.This is a great look when I only want to spend a few minutes on my hair.
Even better than a sock!
Like many of you, I dove right into the Pinterest craze of sock buns and home decor.Considering myself to be adept at traditional ballet buns (i.e. lots of bobby pins), I loved the perfect bun I could (occasionally) achieve with the sock technique.The problem is that not all socks are the same. When I lost my "magic" sock, I found this guy– the Soft ‘N Style Hair Donut Black. I think it might be even better. Unlike the socks (magic or otherwise), this thing actually grips your hair. I should mention that I have fine, straight hair that can be on the slippery side. Also I feel like I can get a much tighter bun with the donut, and so far it hasn’t stretched out at all.To use: pull dry hair into a pony tail, feed tail through middle of donut, slide donut toward end of the tail (leaving a couple of inches), wrap the ends around one side of the donut, and begin simultaneously rolling down and stuffing your hair under. Your hair will typically spread itself around the donut on it’s own as you roll/stuff. Works like a charm!
