How to make the perfect hair donut for fine hair

I am a huge fan of hair donuts for creating giant buns when you don’t have a lot of hair. You can find my big bun hair tutorial here, and I’ve worn a giant top knot with flowers, scarves, headbands and even jewellery.

But what if you still don’t have enough hair to cover the foam insert? If you have fine hair this can be a problem. There’s nothing worse than revealing your big bun secret padding. Here’s my easy solution.

Keep your big bun secret in fine hair

Take a weft of clip-in hair extensions and wrap it around your hair donut!

I’ve used a Lady Jayne clip in extension to wrap my hair donut. Clip the ends of the extension into the donut and wrap it all around. Secure the ends with a bobby pin to keep them in place.

Make sure you colour match your hair extension to your actual hair colour or you won’t be fooling anyone. Then use it as you would a normal hair donut without any worry of your padding showing.

Giant top knots are one of my favourite hairstyles. So simple yet so chic. How do you wear your top knot?

My hair seems to never want to stay in a nice big bun, but this is a brilliant idea. I will definitely be using this!

Hey Hunny! Great idea with the extensions! We also have a fantastic solution for your fans who have fine locks- The Hunny Bun™! Most stores only offer the hair donut in one size and color- well look no further…we offer THREE different sizes (small, medium, large) & THREE different colors (blonde bombshell, chocohottie, black queen bee)! We highly recommend the SMALL Hunny Bun™ for ladies with very fine/shorter locks or the MEDIUM Hunny Bun™ for those with still fine, but longer or maybe layered locks. Like women, not every hair donut is one size fits all- your hair donut is MORE likely to look fabulous if it’s the correct size AND color of your hair, right?! :) In Hair <3!
