View Full Version : Fake hair bun/bow thingy question :)

Apr. 23, 2010, 12:13 AM
Help please ladies! I had someone ask if I knew how to put in a fake bun and I assumed they were talking about the fake bun that you just bobby pin in and said yes.

What if it is that fake ring thing? How on earth do you do that?

Any hair/bun tips appreciated!

Confused... why would someone want to add a fake bun? It's annoying enough to ride with a real one...

Are you talking about the doughnut thing? If so, I will try to explain... You first make a pony tail and stick your pony tail through the hole of the doughnut. Hold the doughnut firmly against your scalp. Then you tease a little bit of the hair from your pony tail, bring it over and cover the little bit of doughnut closest to the piece of hair you just take, tuck it tightly behind the doughnut (between doughnut and your scalp), and then secure it with hair pin. Then you repeat until the whole pony tail hair has covered the doughnut.

The trick is to have thin layer of hair evenly covering the whole doughnut. That results in a clean line professional look but it is really hard to put it up yourself. Also, your hair needs to be long enough to cover the side of the doughnut and be secured behind it but can't be too long or you will have too much loose ends to secure.

google "military bun hair sock' Seriously.

I just roll my hair up into a bun and tack one of these guys on it. They're secured with two little clips underneath. Takes two seconds, and as long as the bun is secure they don't come off, and these guys' rhinestones are sewn in, unlike the snoods you can order from Dover or Dressage Extensions or wherever, which are glued on. They're GORGEOUS.

Ohhhhhhh, thanks for the links-I never heard of this before. At first I thought you were talking about a truly fake bun pinned onto your head.

The "Sophist-o-twist" is like the thing linked above.

About $8 at Walgreens or Rite Aid up here, (also online ) and good for shoulder length hair or longer. I wear mine for all "Class A" uniformed occasions, as well as showing.

"Free Sophist-o-twist, you just pay S&H (http://koolatrononline.stores.yahoo.net/sophist-o-twist.html) (which happens to be just about the same as retail price ;) )

I've done fake hair in a ring same way as described in the "military sock bun", pin it in then use the hair net with bow to dress it up. It is secure and looks better than an empty hair net with a bow :)

Also this works pretty good http://www.hairaddition.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=H&Product_Code=RVA00007&Category_Code=HP if you have short hair but can still put it into a small pony tail

oh... thanks for that last link. You could net it... would let me have my hair a little shorter but still able to put it up... ooohhh possibilities!

(um, what's a butterfly clip? :uhoh: )
