Conair Top Bun Kit Review

Hi Kind Friends! Today I am sharing with you a review of the Conair Bun Maker, AKA a top bun kit. I purchased this at Target for $4.19, plus 5% off with my Red Card discount.

For a heck of a long time I’ve been using sock buns… As much as I love the fact that I can use an old unmatched sock in my hair to give me a more voluminous bun for free, I wanted an actual bun maker that would match my hair. There is something weird about knowing there is a sock in your hair.

The bun maker kit comes with four wide bun pins, a bun “donut”, and a hair tie. The instructions on the back recommend putting up your hair, putting the donut through the hair, moving the hair around the donut, and then pinning the excess hair around the donut.

HATE that method.

I don’t know why more instruction manuals for buns don’t talk about the “tuck and roll” for buns. Check out my previous bun video below for how to tuck and roll your hair into the donut. It makes for a much more voluminous and secure bun. Then I’d add two of the pins.


As for the donut bun itself, I love it! It has a textured feel that grabs onto the hair, helping said hairs stay in place. This bun maker is very easy to use and worth the $4 price. I kept my bun in for a full eight hour work day without a single problem.

Thank goodness for these bun kits!
