“Simply roll, wrap and snap” is it really that easy to pull my hair up into a stylish bun without pins? It is with Hot Buns.
I rarely wear my hair in a bun because buns either turn out lopsided, flat or messy. When my editor suggested I check out Hot Buns, I figured it was worth a try. As a fashion and beauty writer, I have written scores of how-to articles and interviews with top stylists, so I do know my way around hair products!

Hot Buns Hair Accessories are a combination of accessory (because you keep them in) and tool (because they set your style invisibly). Hot Buns make it easy to roll your hair into a lasting updo or half-do that stays put until you take it out. No pins needed!
A little-known bonus use of Hot Buns: when you take your hair out of the bun, you get a great wave or curl to your hair! So comfortable, you can sleep in it, you can actually set your hair into a bun at night and wake up to gorgeous waves, or wear a bun all day, then let your hair down for a great day-into-evening transformation.
Here is the official infomercial for Hot Buns, as seen on television. This gives you a quick overview of the product, how it works and the best uses.
When creating an updo, it usually helps to start with dry hair, preferably a few hours or a full day after washing it. To start, brush out any knots. Your first time using Hot Buns, it helps to gather your hair and secure it with an elastic. Open the Hot Buns Stalk and place it at the end of your hair, then roll in toward your scalp. Snap the Hot Buns ring closed and fan the hair along the ring, covering it with your hair. As you get more experienced and are looking for looser hairstyles, omit the elastic band. You can try different looks with half-do’s, full-updo’s, wrapping your bun with braids or wrapping a strand of hair around it.
For lasting curls instead of a bun, wrap wet hair around the Hot Buns ring and let air dry or blow-dry your bun and spray before releasing it.
I’ve seen other bun wraps in stores but hadn’t tried any. I figured this was the best time to check them out! The bun wraps I found at the drugstore and hair accessories stores were puffy — too puffy. I wasn’t 7 years old or preparing for opening night as a Prima Ballerina , so I didn’t need all that “pouff” for my bun. The bun wraps in the stores also didn’t have a solid “snap” to hold the bun in place. This point is really key for me — because Hot Buns keeps your hair just where you put it for a no-fuss, worry-free style that stays in place until you take it out. The competition was much more difficult to roll into place and impossible to secure without bobby pins.
I tried the small Hot Buns hair accessory on my 11-year-old daughter who had just dip-dyed the ends of her hair in Kool-Aid. She wanted to create a half-updo and showcase her hot pink feathery ends. We wrapped part of her hair in the small accessory, then took two loose strands of hair and wrapped them around the bun in opposite directions, letting the pink “feathers” stick up. We secured the ends with tiny bobby pins, and the effect was really fun!
