I feel a little silly asking this, but has anyone used or is planning to use a clip on bun?! I have super fine hair which won’t hold a veil and every hairspray I’ve tried gives me face eczema (not a great look). I’ve always wanted a low bun and this looks like a way I could acheive a good one but I don’t want it to look bad! Advice and thoughts welcome.

I don’t but only because they never match my hair (and I don’t dye my hair)… make sure you take it to a hair colorist who can dye it (and your hair, if you like) to match.
As long as it’s real hair it shoud dye OK.
But I don’t see the fuss about it!
Especialy if you can get it so that it looks integrated with your hair and not like an obvious clip-on. 🙂

I have extremely fine hair. I wore a curled hair scrunchie (easihair) for my sisters wedding and it looked awesome. which we all nicknamed the “hamster”. Haha. For my wedding in December I wore a “gerbil” also easihair brand but much larger curls. All i did was put my hair in a ponytail and the hairdresser pinned the curl piece to my head and ensured it didnt move all night. Ill post a photo when i find one. Does that help?
i also got very lucky that their colors matched my hair cause it was synthetic piece so no dyeing was possible.

I wore a bun dome (another term for this) on my wedding day, and I think it looked great. I have very fine hair and it’s a solid, even color, so wearing the bun dome worked out. In my case, I ordered it on ebay, paid $10 for S&H, and bobby-pinned it into the back of my head.
Since many brides end up wearing a veil over it (or just under it anyway), you can probably get away with a color that’s 1 – 2 shades lighter or darker than your natural color without it being too obvious. Even if it is apparent, most people (myself included) would probably chalk it up to the rest of your hair being pulled back, which could affect the appearance of its color, or chalk it up to the use of things like hair sprays, etc.
It was worth it for me because it was so simple, so quick, and honestly, I have very fine, thin hair, so they can’t do much with it anyhow. I spent less than 10 minutes doing my own hair at home…saved tons of money (getting it done with a tip included was going to be a minimum of $75 around here, even if I went to a beauty school).
I really love it. And — I can wear it again, and I intend to!

I would like something like this too! Jessica Simpson has a line of these products, but I want to see them in real life before I order. I have no idea where I could buy one. I want a synthetic one because it’s just for parties and stuff.
if it’s for something as important as your wedding, I would recommend going to a real wig shop and seeing what they have. it could be expensive but it would probably cost less than a fancy hairdresser! another option would be to buy a thick, long clip-in extention and twist it into a bun until it covers up all of the combs and stuff.

I’ve never heard of a clip on bun, but have heard of lots of people using extensions and hair pieces to get a fuller waves or up do. If you go that route you can have them arranged how you want and don’t have to buy a preformed style. Plus they can blend it with your hair to make it look more natural.

In high school to one of the dances I wore a clip on thing… not a bun but more like a short curly ponytail. It matched my hair color perfectly and no one could tell!

I have ben blessed with more hair than I know what to do with, but one of my good friends has super fine hair that she basically can’t do anything with, she alternates between extensions and clip-on’s and LOVES them. I say go for it!

I used a fun bun I bought at Sally’s beauty supply for $11! It matched my hair SO amazingly no one ever guessed it was fake. I have long, very thin, fine and straight hair. My wedding day was 98 degrees with 100% humidity so I was so happy I didn’t ever have to worry about what my hair looked like!

Thank you all! I feel better about it now 🙂 Just ordered a cheap one to practise with – will post a pic if it’s not too terrible…
@JemmyGee: That looks great!
