I’m 46 years old and trying to figure out how to give myself space buns.
Yes, space buns:
I bought a pack of fake hair from China years ago only to discover that the hair was WAY TOO BLONDE for me and just not thick enough to be effective.
So I went back online (FIRST MISTAKE) and I ordered two clips of 24 inch long curly hair.
I figured that would be good enough to give me some extra volume.
My SECOND MISTAKE was overestimating how much hair I would need.
The hair clips I bought LITERALLY LOOK LIKE big hairy tribbles sitting on my head.
I shit you not!
Now that I’ve had a chance to fuck up not once, but TWICE, I think I’ve figured out how to do it properly.
This design appeals to me and looks like there’s enough to create some volumized space buns, without looking too much like a cartoon character.
The problem is, it’s made with real human hair and I once saw a documentary on how women in India were tricked into shaving their heads to give their hair to a temple as an offering.
The temple turned around and sold the hair to human hair extension companies to clean up and process and quite honestly, I’m a bit skeeved out at the idea of wearing someone else’s hair.
Yes, you heard it here first.
I prefer synthetic hair.
So there you have it.
Lesson #1: Don’t buy synthetic hair from China.
Lesson #2: Don’t buy human hair from India.
So I’ve spent a great deal of time combing the internet (ha ha, pun totally intended) for synthetic hair pony tails.
This is what I found:
From Zala Hair Extensions.
Here is my BEFORE picture with no extensions:
We’ll see how my space buns look when my fake ponytails arrive in the mail.
