Also, it only made an "okay" bun. It was usually a bit messy and uneven.
While I was at Sally Beauty, I saw this. It comes in several colors to match your hair (I was hunting for brown socks previously), it's mesh, really light, and it's all one piece so it won't unroll.
Oh and it's only $3 :)

On Amazon you can even buy different sizes. I have lots of hair and it's very thick and I haven't had a problem with what Sally's carries, but it's also not sized, so I can't compare it to any of the sized ones. It's possible the sizes are for children's hair vs adults hair. Also, it seems to be called a "chignon maker" or similar on Amazon if you're looking.
Here's my much improved, no bobby pin touch up needed, lightweight yet super hold-worthy Bun Maker bun:
Compare to the first photo with a sock, it's a big difference!
