If you need a little extra help creating the perfect bun, then we recommend the Hair Donut. From our own range of hair accessories this bun former is available in black, brown & blonde versions and now comes in five sizes! There's every size you need to create fabulous hair bun styles; from all-over mini buns, to classic ballet buns, through to over-sized dolly buns. So depending on your hair colour, hair length and size preference, choose the best-suited donut for you.

Approximate sizes:
Small: 7cm diameter & 2.5cm high
Standard: 8cm diameter & 3cm high - this is our original hair donut
Large: 9cm diameter & 3.5cm high
Extra Large: 11cm diameter & 4cm high
Super Large: 13cm diameter & 5.5cm high
The diameters listed above are inclusive of the central void and therefore reflect the size of the donut once placed in hair.

Basic Instructions:
We've tried the Hair Donut here, and we thought you might appreciate our suggestions at getting the best out of it. We'd recommend two different techniques (the fan or the pom pom); try them both and see what suits you the best.

Both techiques start with securing
your hair into a ponytail with an invisible hair elastic (we’d recommend Scünci Large Polybands). We've tried without the polybands, but believe us, it's much easier with than without!

A. The Fan Technique
After you've secured your ponytail, follow these next steps:
  • Push your ponytail through the hole in the middle of the hair donut until the donut covers your polyband at the base of your ponytail.
  • The next stage is a little more tricky; from its base at the centre of the donut, the idea is to fan out your ponytail and arrange your hair around the donut until the bun former is no longer visible in your hair.
  • Do this by taking one section of hair (approximately 1cm to 2cm in width) from the fanned ponytail at a time, pull it taut to the outside edge of the donut, then tuck under the base of the donut and secure with a bobby pin. If your hair is particularly thick, try using wave grips to secure your hair instead.
  • Repeat the previous step and continue the method in a clockwise (or anti-clockwise) direction, securing a section of hair at a time until the donut is completely covered.
B. The Pom Pom Technique
After securing your ponytail, follow these next steps:
  • Guide the entire length of the ponytail through the hole in the centre of the donut.
  • Taking the end of the ponytail to the outside edge of the donut, tuck the ponytail underneath the donut and then pull the entire length back up through the donut middle.
  • Repeat the previous step in a clockwise (or anti-clockwise) direction until the entire donut has been covered (just like wrapping wool around a pompom maker).
  • Tuck any loose or stray ends under the base of the donut and secure with grips.

The hair donut is made of super-light polyester so don't worry about it weighing heavy in your hair or giving you a headache! It also provides an excellent base for your bun if you are going to use decorative hair pins or hair jewels to finish your look.

5 of 5 Fantastic January 22, 2014
Reviewer: Maria from Swindon, Wiltshire United Kingdom  
I absolutely love this! It's so simple to make a quick and trendy bun- I can be ready for the school run or work in 5 mins but looks like I've spent time doing my hair in the morning!
I wouldn't be without it. It can be dressed up for a special occasion or a night out, but can also look causal for an easy daytime look.
Delivery was very quick and the price was great too. Very pleased and would definitely recommend this as a must have!

Reviewer: PAULINE HOLFORD from PRESTON, Lancashire United Kingdom  
I must now have a full set of donut rings but this of course is the Daddy of all donuts! Not sure I have enough hair to fill it all up but I know a granddaughter who will help me find a home for it.
GREAT for her, not so great for me!

Reviewer: Lady E from Northolt, Middlesex United Kingdom  
I ordered 2 hair doughnuts, one extra and one super large.  They arrived promptly, well packaged and are well made and were reasonably priced and good value for money.

Very happy with my purchase and will use Pretty Pieces again!
