Buns 101: How-To’s, Tips & Tricks

You’ve made it just in time for class! Today we’re talking all about buns, specifically our beautiful Sammy bun and Miley mini space buns. They were made to be your bun, but bigger (and better, too)! Let’s get started.


What makes INH buns the best?

We use a special vegan fiber from Japan that was created to mimic the look and feel of real hair! Our buns blend in seamlessly with your natural hair and are super quick and easy to apply. Our buns are super versatile and can be worn in multiple styles. They also come pre-styled, which means that once you apply them, they’re ready to go. With the proper maintenance, our buns will last a really long time!


What’s Included:

With every bun purchase, you’ll receive a reusable storage box.


How to Apply Sammy

 

 

Sammy is a versatile bun that serves looks any way you style her!

1. Start with dry, tangle free hair. Using your fingers and a paddle brush, gather hair into a top knot (baby bun) and secure with a sturdy elastic.

2. Place Sammy’s net over your baby bun, securing the four clips on each side of your hair. 

3. Take the drawstring and pull until tight.

4. Tuck the drawstring under the net to ensure a seamless look.

 

How to Apply Miley

Our Miley buns are basically the mini version of Sammy buns, but with tails! You can wrap the tails around the base of your buns and bobby pin them down for extra security, or you can leave them hanging for a cute look. You’ll be following the same application steps as you would to apply Sammy. The only difference is you’ll be parting your hair down the middle to create two mini buns with your natural hair instead of one!


Ways to Style Sammy

We’ve listed some of our favorite ways to wear Sammy, but show us your own personal style by tagging #INHBabe on Instagram!

 

The Messy Bun
Our favorite way to rock Sammy! She’s casual chic.
The Ballerina Bun

After applying Sammy, gather pieces from your bun to wrap tightly around the elastic. Secure the ends underneath with bobby pins. We recommend using Quick Slick for a sleek look.

The Loose Bun

After you apply her, gently feather and spread tendrils apart from your bun, letting pieces fall to create an effortless, loose bun.

 

The Low Bun

We love a classic low bun!

 


Style Tip: Pair her with our Zooey bangs for the ultimate look.


Ways to Style Miley

Double the buns means double the fun! Wear her as you would Sammy, or experiment with new styles!

Tails out!

Miley buns come with tails that you can leave out for a unique, cute twist on space buns.

 

 

Removing Buns

When you’re ready to take off your bun(s), gently pull the elastic cord to release. Find the four clips, and unclip one by one, ensuring to not pull on your actual hair. Once you’ve unattached the bun(s), pull straight up and they should come off easily. Make sure to store her in the reusable box she comes in.


Buns Aftercare

We all want to keep our inches looking perfect for as long as possible. Here are some tips and tricks on how to care for your buns:

  • Brush before and after each wear with a wide tooth comb 
  • Wash your INH hair pieces occasionally or if they’re dirty.
    • We don’t recommend frequently washing your hair pieces. Just wash them when you absolutely need to!
  • Store using the super cute reusable box that comes with every order! It helps prevent tangles and extends the life of your hair. 

 

Brushing

When you look at our buns from the top, you find the center of the bun (it looks like a donut hole). Take a brush and brush from the donut hole outwards to the ends. Make sure to brush before and after each wear. Store neatly in the storage box to prevent tangles when not in use.

 

Washing

Here’s how to keep Sammy and Miley lookin’ fresh!

 

  1. To start, make sure to brush and detangle your bun. 
  2. Soak her under cool running water.
  3. Use a mild or synthetic wig shampoo and lather her with your other hand using circular motions with your fingers throughout the hair until clean. DO NOT RUB or lather into a ball!
  4. Rinse the shampoo and apply a good amount of some moisturizing conditioner or hair mask. For best results, leave the conditioner or hair mask on for about 5 to 10 minutes. (You can also leave it on overnight!)
  5. Rinse the hair under cool running water until silky smooth. Lightly detangle any knots with fingers.
  6. Squeeze excess water, then lay on a dry towel and let it air dry. 

 

WARNING: Do NOT blow dry your buns! Doing so may result in damage to your locks (and we hate damaged hair). Air dry your hair for best results.

 

Pro Tip: Feel free to use your favorite leave-in conditioners with detangling ingredients, detanglers, shine sprays or serums as you wish. Do not use any oils or heavy creams.
