My mother bought this for me and I hated it, I'm sticking with sock buns. Waste of money. This is uncomfortable, hard to put in your hair and hair does not stay in it. It was a waste of money, dosen't even stay in your hair.
These make a quick and long-lasting bun. Sometimes it takes a couple tries to get it positioned just right for a bun that holds but isn't too tight, but once you get it right you get a lovely even bun.
