Love it!

By April K

from Albany, GA

Comments about Mia Brown Bend-A-Bun:

This works so well! I used it immediately after buying to tame my frizzy hair and it was so easy that I did it in the car in about 30 seconds. I have another bun maker that I love, but this one works so much better with my long, thin hair. My only complaint was that it didn't quite make a complete circle. I am excited to use this again!

        This might have worked better for someone with not as thick hair…I thought thick hair would work well to cover the product, but I was wrong. The wire device didn't make a complete circle…more like a U shape. It also didn't stay in and tight like a neat bun should look like. Very disappointed.

                  This thing is amazing. I am in the Army and have to wear my hair in a bun every single day. I cannot believe that I have just now discovered this little beauty tool. There are a few tricks to it, however, if you want to get a sleek, smooth bun...firstly, it helps to put a bit of product (some sort of styling cream, gel, or mousse) into your hair before using the bun maker. Adding product gives your hair that bit of texture and stick that you need to keep everything in place. Secondly, it very much helps to do this on hair that is at least damp. I have layers and cannot imagine trying to get this to work on dry hair. Thirdly, once you roll the bun maker down towards your head, you have to smooth the hair downward to spread it evenly over the bunmaker. Give your hair a blast of hairspray before you try to shape it, and it will keep the hair intact while you manipulate it into that perfect shape. This will help to create the donut shape and avoid the 'u-shape' that some other reviewers referred to. There are videos on youtube that are really helpful in showing how to use this tool properly. Use a few bobby pins to tuck in the stragglers, and you will have a beautiful, full, ballerina bun that looks amazing and stays all day. I have literally had soldiers stop me to compliment me on my perfect bun and inquire as to how I did it!

                    Could not use this product with my hair dry and it was not much more effective with wet hair. I do have A LOT of hair with mixed texture, this product just couldn't handle it. I wound up with more of a U shape than an actual bun, which I was not really a fan of. Bobby pins and hairspray or gel might be helpful.

                        I was excited to try this but my hair was too thin. My hair is long but cut in layers. So most of my hair slipped right out.
                        I ended up giving it to my hairdresser and she was very excited to have it.

                          I love this for making a bun in the military. I only wish they would make a smaller version so that the bun doesn't have to be so big!

                          Comments about Mia Brown Bend-A-Bun:

                          I bought this to place my waist length hair in a bun to keep it up during our hot, humid, Texas summers. I thought the look of a bun would be cute and effective. I found the product easy to use, my hair is mostly the same length all over, and like the way it looks when up. The only problem is I can't get it to distribute around to the bottom of the bun. The hair just sort of hangs at the bottom, not really in bun shape at all. I fixed this by placing a flower clip at the bottom and it covers up that the bun doesn't go all the way around.

                          On a different note, I put it on top of my head at night and have a nice curl and bounce to my hair the next morning when I let it down!
