Ahhh…. donuts. Officially they’re called “Bun Builders”, but we all know them by either “donuts” or “sock buns”. These nylon mesh poofs help to add volume and uniformity to your bun. You make a pony tail, slip this over the end, pull the hair through, and arrange the hair around the builder (fastening with your preference of fasteners–elastics, pins, etc). Bunheads makes three sizes–a mini, a regular, and a junior. The regular is about 3″(ish) in diameter, with the junior roughly a 1/2″ smaller. Mini is about an 1″ smaller than the regular. Only three color options here–blonde, brown, and black.
Sizing Info: The junior seemed to be the most versatile size…. but it really depends on both the thickness of your hair and the length of your hair.

*A note about prices – while the MSRP is listed – it is just that. Please remember that your local dance store also has to cover shipping costs, lights, rent, other utilities, and oh yeah – HUMANS! When you go into a local dance store – please realize that you are possibly paying a premium for their expertise, knowledge, and having (most) products there on hand. That’s not cheap. Please don’t go “window shopping” there only to save a few bucks. Especially on products under $100, it’s really not worth it. Support your local store. Please. When you do, you validate why we have physical stores and why we, as store owners, dedicate ourselves to providing you with products and knowledge we can stand behind.
