Pony Bun: Add-on Bun for Thin Hair (Review)

A few days ago I posted about the great sale at VogueWigs.com – and it’s still going on for a few more days (through May 26th). They are running a Buy 1, Get 1 50% off deal, and I purchased both the Elegance Monofilament Hairpiece by easihair (Pony Bun) as well as a mystery item. ;) The deal was made even sweeter because I went to ebates.com first, searched for Voguewigs.com through there, and clicked through. Bam! Another 8.5% off! Buying hair is kind of addicting, so I try to save money wherever I can.

I got my order in three days! That’s amazing! I get to give you a sneak peek at the pony bun, which will give you a chance to decide if it’s something you want, too, since the sale is going on for a few more days.

I thought the pony bun would be great for the pool. I could put my own bio hair up in a high bun, and conceal the front of my head (where my hairloss is the worst) with a wide, stretchy headband.

Here is my bio hair just up. It looks a bit of a mess because I took my topper off and just combed it straight into a ponytail. If it was freshly washed it would look a little better…but let’s be honest, not by much. :) My face here says it all: these tiny baby hairs coming back in (I’m recovering from my post-partum shed) are simply ridiculous.

Bio Hair in Bun

Enter the pony bun. I got it in color 8, Cocoa Bean.

Nope, you didn’t miss something. That’s actually not a hamster, it IS the pony bun. Here is the inside of it:

Pony Bun Birdsnest

It so much so looked like a bird’s nest that I couldn’t resist. Ok, let’s scrap the birds:

Pony Bun Inside

I think that pic is a bit fuzzy – sorry! I wasted all my time adding birds to the first photo of the inside, so now I have no time to re-take it; the kiddo only naps for so long. :) But, I’m sure you can see that there is a drawstring at the base to help tighten it once it’s around your own bio-bun. There are also two combs in this piece, so you place it over your bio-bun, then wiggle the combs into your bio hair at the top and bottom.

I love the look of this! Here is a side-shot – trust me when I say that pony in the back is ALL pony bun.

And, the top view.

Finally, the finished result with the Elegance Monofilament Hairpiece by easihair. I LOVE it. I especially love it since it was only $17 (and then even less if you factor in my ebates discount!) It feels surprisingly secure, but you could always add a bobby pin or two to help keep it firmly in place. I think this will be a great option for the pool and beach this summer. Even though this was the first time trying a piece like this, it literally took me about 3 minutes to put my bio hair up, attach the pony bun, and throw on a headband. That’s how summer should be, nice and easy.

What do you think?

        Hi Lauren,

        I’ve recently been devastated by noticing rapid hair loss I’ve always had thin hair but it has accelerated to the point of bald spots. I’ve been affected by what I call a triple whammy, maybe even quadruple whammy…. I had a traumatic experience where I was forced to give birth at 6 months due to an infection (sadly my baby did not make it), so traumatic experience + birth + hair loss genes/miniaturizing follicles + fertility meds (hence quadtuple whammy). Anyways, your blog has been a source of inspiration to me so thank you! This is probably the wrong spot to comment but I was eondering if you ever used the laser comb. I just bought one so it’s too soon to report back results.

        Thanks!

        Joe

      Bummer! I’m going to try to post about sales more often so stay tuned. Still – not a bad price even with no sale!

    It looks really nice on you. An updo is so elegant and feminine. Thank you for this post. I am trying to find this piece in my color 38r. God bless and I pray your hair will grow thick and full and healthy!
