I purchased 2 of these to create space buns, I was surprised and happy when I opened the pack to find snag free hair ties and bobby pins (what a bonus).
The buns are thick and create added volume.
I part my hair into 2 halves, and keep hair down that's around my face. I tie up each half with a hair tie and depending on my mood I either curl or straighten each side from mid length to ends (don't forget heat protectant!) Using my tail comb I back comb the top to mid length and then take small sections to add around and on the bun before securing with a bobby pin. I do this until all the hair is up and secure, then I curl or straighten the hair around my face before setting everything with hair spray. It stays intact all day.
I also have 1 bun to style my daughters hair for school, hers is sleeked back and secured to create a tidy do which lasts all day, and with her sports it barely moves.
I highly recommend and will repurchase in the future.
