Do It Yourself Faux Bun

This tutorial was inspired by a vintage bun cover I found a local store. I went back and forth about whether to buy it. It was very unique and I had never seen one, but on the other hand, I had just cut my hair and didn't have enough to even make a bun. So, I decided to make one. The tools you need are:
  • A bun form (I got mine off of Make sure it's the kind with snaps on the end, not the circle kind.
  • Fake hair (I got some cheap ($20) human hair that was very close to my color at my local Sally's beauty. I bought the kind that's just on a track.
  • Thread
  • Needle
  • Scissors
  • Bobby pins

Items needed

Step 1: Lay out your form and your hair.
Make sure to fold the hair so that it equals the length of the form.

Step 2: Sew the tracks together if you have a hard time keeping them straight.
Then sew the hair to the form.

Step 3: Roll the hair around the form and then snap the ends together.

Step 4: Spread the hair out to create an even bun.

Step 5: Carefully flip the it over and bobby pin small sections to the
bottom of the form until all the hair is attached.

This should be the final result.

Attach the bun to your head by creating a small pony tail and bobby pin it to your head.
You can put it low like above.

Or you can put it high like this.

And here is the vintage bun cover that inspired it all.
