Hooray for Hot Buns
Big Sis: Okay, first off, I can't believe I'm writing a post with the words "Hot Buns" in it, but I had to spread the word on the neatest beauty device recently invented. I'm not one to covet "as seen on TV" products (except for maybe the Wax Vac), but when I saw the infomercial for Hot Buns, I immediately had a hankering for one. I wear my hair up almost everyday in a fairly lame frizzy side ponytail. Sometimes I'll change it up a little and go for a back ponytail. A few times, I've actually attempted a bun. The results usually resemble something that looks like Squidward's nose, except for blond and frizzy. I gave up hair buns completely, because I could never get mine to look like the lovely, seemingly effortless, perfect buns that I coveted on Pinterest. Well, that leads us back to Hot Buns. I just bought a box of two (in blond) at Walgreens for $9.99. They come in two sizes; small and large, and look like Velcro Caterpillars with buttons on the side. Well, last night I took the larger Velcro caterpillar, wrapped it in my ponytail, snapped the buttons, and "TA DA," I had a beautiful, perfect, fluffy ballerina bun right on top of my head (for the first time in my life.) Thanks, Hot Buns! Now, I'm just waiting for a product that will magically turn my backside into "hot buns." Here's the link to buy them, but I suggest just getting them at Walgreen's if you can, so you don't have to pay for shipping. Warning: the infomercial is really annoying.
