              This is really easy to use and get the perfect little bun. My mother likes it too, and can use it with ease.

                          I found this product much easier to use on thin layered hair than a traditional sock bun. It says half-up, but worked perfect for my thin, below the shoulders hair. I've used it for both high and low buns and it stayed put all day. I secured the bun with an elastic.

                          This is a great product overall! I always want that perfect bun that holds all day and this definitely provides that. It's a little difficult to get used to but after learning how to use it properly I have no issues. Also helps with the issue with getting headaches when I put my hair up, which i've seen an improvement when using this!

                                            I bought this as an alternative to the "Hot Buns" stylers I was using, because while they created nice full, neat buns, they tore my hair out! I had so much breakage and traction alopecia after 3 weeks of use that I had to discontinue. So I got these, and they do make a bun...albeit not as full and nice as the other system, but they do not cause pain and hair loss! I wish they made them a little rounder and not so flat. Other than that, they are great!

                                                I have long thin hair. This product is better for someone with medium thickness hair. I cant get it to wrap well, its difficult to use and will fall apart pretty quickly. Poorly made.
