|Antique Hair Receiver|
Well, today you don't have to keep a creepy little jar of your own hair to create volume. You can buy a new form of hair rat made out of foam that comes in a variety of colors and sizes. I have a long one that has snaps on the ends to either create bumper bangs or the perfect bun.
|Hair Rat/Bun Form, Long in Blonde with snaps|
One warning, if you are going to wear the large bun on the top of your head, unless you are Pentecostal, I suggest avoiding wearing long denim skirts with this look. (:
To create the perfect bun on top of your head, put your hair in a high pony, then stretch your hair out above your head until it's straight and place the long hair rat at the end of your hair. Roll it down and roll your hair around it until you get to your head. Snap the ends together to form a ring and then carefully distribute the hair around the form to hide it. Bobby pin in a few spots to secure and your done. A perfectly full bun in no time.
If you want to go the cheaper route and create your own form, you can always use a sock. No kidding, it's called a sock bun and here is a great tutorial.

Other styles you can create with the hair rat include bumper bangs, which I mentioned before. Here is a great tutorial using the rat by Cherry Dollface.
