Good Morning Ladies !

How was your weekend ? Mine was fabulous !
Ugh - every time I say that word Teresa from Real Housewives of New Jersey pops into my head and goes faaaaaaabulous.

Last Friday I got all dressed up for a dinner date with a friend who had just returned from a long road trip - I had to get updated on all the stories ! My outfit of choice - a cute blue shimmery top , some jeans, deep purple eye makeup and my long hair rolled into a bun.

The only time I have my hair in a bun is at home. I'd love to do a proper updo more often but given my hair's density and texture - I'd probably have to use half a gallon of hair spray , and a few hundred bobby pins and those other U shaped ones. But then I came across this nifty little gadget called Whirl - A- Style that promised a easy bun and I just had to try it. This was the result.

Whirl - A - Style Jumbo Large & Jumbo Medium

I am very happy with this. The Whirl - A - Style product comes in many sizes and colors to suit different hair shades, lengths, textures and density. Here I have on their biggest one - Jumbo Large. It was a bit small for my hair. I could fit most of my hair into it but not all.

This is what I did -
Lay my hair flat on my back.
Pull three fourth of it into Whirl A Style
Drag it down along the length of my hair
Roll it up and snap it.
Roll the rest of my hair around the bun - secure with a couple of bobby pins.

This one below - I used the Jumbo Medium. Its good for a half up do.

All my hair in the bun stayed put throughout dinner - I was thoroughly pleased that I didn't have to pull it out or add more pins. Speaking of pulling it out - taking the bun out was really easy too. I unsecured the ends and it fell out pretty easily without me losing even a single strand of hair - mega points for that !

This works best on hair that doesn't have a lot of layers. If you have man layers along the length of your hair, then the ends may start peeking out the bun. I have some layers at the end but not all along so it wasn't hard.

Overall its a super hair gadget for all of $10 - available here. You can read more on all the other hairstyles one can create with these on their site . Next on my list is to try and do a French knot with it.

uhhhh .. i love you? I'm Sikh and I do my toddler son's hair in a bun on his head. I have to rely on getting these funky gadgets from India and no one seems to be bringing me new ones and I'm down to my last one. This little contraption you posted seems like it would totally do the job! Ordering a couple sizes now. If this works, you are my hero. If not, you're still cool =)
