Hey Miss Nikki,
Hope you’re doing well today. I wanted to send in this picture of my “corporate hair” which is a donut bun.
This is the one I bought at Sally’s for about $2.00. You can also make a donut with a sock.
I co-wash my hair first [because my hair is in layers and I can’t do it with dry hair], seal my ends with Shea butter, and put my hair up in a ponytail. I insert the ponytail through the donut and then proceed to spread my wet hair evenly throughout the donut. I will sometimes add chopsticks to add some pizazz. This hairdo will last me all day and takes about 5 minutes to do.

Can you do a quick but bit more in depth tutorial on how to get your beautiful bun with the donut thingy, especialy if you have long hair (my girls)? Thx
I used to love those sticks…I like the bun and I an thankful that there is a bun “maker” out there, because I used to see a lot of socks….
I never used this donut to style my hair..even though I was a bun girl all my life lol ..but most def.
I’ve used this in the past to make my donut buns and it works great. It does not pull at your hair unless the ponytail itself is too tight. Another beautiful addition by Maria!
I used to do this do all through out junior high. It is one of the best protective hairstyles I would say, though sometimes I fear it might be pulling at the front of my hair. I LOVE it.
I love using the donut to style my hair and I am so happy that my hair has finally gotten long enough to were I can do it again. I used to make mine but I like that you can get this from Sally’s because it is less time consuming to make and I don’t have to store supplies. It’s a nice elegant protective style. I have never used the chopsticks but I like the look. Thanks for sharing.
