Your hair will need to have quite some length on it but, yes, this product does work very well. I would never be able to create a bun this style without this tool and you do not have to use elastics. Value for money, with three tools in a bag. The bendable strips are covered with hair-like fibres to camouflage in the hair.
The product arrived quickly. It doesn't come with any instructions, so you'll need to review pics and reviews here to learn how to put it in. I put my hair up in a quick ponytail, opened the the product, inserted the end of my ponytail between the two sides, rolled it up my ponytail and then clicked/snapped it into a donut. It only clicks into a donut one way, so if you try clicking it a certain way and it doesn't fairly easily snap into a donut, try the other way. Then position your hair around the product to create a great bun and hide the product under the hair. It felt like it held my hair tight and didn't feel like it would slip out. Because I have long layers, there were a few pieces that I'd probably bobby pin into the bun if I wanted it to look perfect, otherwise it was a cute messy bun. Super easy. I don't understand reviews that say they can't figure it out. I'm pleasantly surprised and will be giving as stocking stuffers this year.
My six year old has silky smooth straight hair that is slightly naturally layered. I tried this for her twirling competition because she was supposed to keep her hair in a tight ballet bun. This did not work for her hair, as it kept falling out and the product itself would not hold the different layers no matter how hard I tried while rolling. It does work well on my kinky curls though, because I tested it out of curiosity. I have no need for it so I ended up giving it to my sister who has thicker straight hair, so I would say this is definitely a product for thicker hair.
I had high hopes for this product after loving my hairagami back in the day. This is not the same.
I have thick, curly hair that extends past my shoulders. It will not hold it all. I have better luck if it’s wet but if it’s dry pieces poke out everywhere.
It doesn’t want to bend or bends when it’s not supposed to. I decided it was more effort to send back and just kept it for a sloppy look at home. After one or two uses, the covering starting coming off and now part won’t lay flat. My old one lasted years and held much longer lengths of hair.
If you have very thick or curly hair, save your money. That being said, the pandemic has limited options for outside of the home haircare. I may just keep ordering these until I can get a haircut. It’s so hot out and just having it up without a clip is nice.
I have very long hair that goes down to my waist so at first these were a challenge to get all my hair to stay withing the small area. But after a few weeks I'm an expert now and this is a very quick and easy hair style. I can dress this up or down with some accessories. Love it!
I had hoped this product would be like others I've seen used by friends -- with a bit of fabric and padding around a wire frame -- that would not only create the bun shape quickly and conveniently but also provide a tiny bit of volume and manageable shape. As it turns out, it is just a pair of 1990-style slap bracelets connected at one end and covered with hair-colored thread. There is no grip whatsoever to the threadlike covering, so it slides out of my hair very quickly, looking sloppy. The thin metal form provides no volume whatsoever and the slap-bracelet style causes it to coil tightly around itself, making a very tiny bun for someone like me without thick hair. This might be a good product for those with thicker and/or longer hair, but definitely not for me.
I could tell by looking at them in the package that they weren't what I needed for my long hair. Maybe they work for others, but I can only say I thought they would have been showing through my hair and looked bulky and awkward to apply.
