My princess has her hair in buns all the time for swimming and dance but they always seem to be falling out when her activity is over.
I grabbed this handy little tool in the hopes that it might solve our problem. It's called the "Bun Spiral" by Goody and I picked it up at Walgreens.
You start by pulling all the hair back into a ponytail as usual.
Now twist that ponytail and wind it around your elastic to create your bun. Tuck your ends under as best you can at this point. Now grab the Bun Spiral and slip it over the bun - so that the purple tips are next to the head.
Now simply spin it clockwise until it won't spin anymore and this locks it into place. I have to admit that I was pretty impressed. It holds that bun VERY tightly in place and her bun looked just as beautiful after school as before. I give this one a thumbs up!
