Ingenious Hair Accessory Helps You Create A Chic Bun In Mere Seconds, Get It In Singapore For Cheap
We're all familiar with classic claw clips, which are great for that messy chic look. And then there are newfangled devices like the Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler which allow you to create dressier looks. But try as we might, some of us just can’t style our hair for nuts. Between clumsy hand-eye coordination and having aching arms from all the time spent twisting and twirling your tresses, it can be quite a hassle to get a nice DIY updo. But here’s where the deft bun hair accessory comes in.
The deft bun is part hair accessory, part hair tool, and we first got to know about it through Osewaya, a popular Japanese store with the daintiest and most elegant costume jewellery and hair accessories.
It comes as a long strip of fabric with a slit in the middle. How it works is that you put your hair through the slit, roll the fabric upwards, and cross the ends together to secure everything in place. Here’s a visual tutorial:
There’s no need to do any tying or knotting, as the deft bun has bendable metal inside to help it keep its shape. The way the two ends of the accessory fold up makes it look like a bow - a quick and easy way to add a touch of sweetness to your getup.
You don’t necessarily have to do a full bun. A half-up looks just as good!
The deft bun on Osewaya Global’s online store comes in Paisley and Faux Leather versions, each in a handful of different colourways including pink, beige, and blue. Osewaya Global does ship to Singapore, with free delivery above $62, but being Japan-made goods with a reputable brand name to them, these don’t come cheap, starting from JPY2,4000 (~S$25.88).
For those not willing to splurge, there are other alternatives on sites like Shopee. Simply key “deft bun” into the search bar, and you’ll be met with plenty of affordable results, including those from Shopee Preferred sellers.
This seller has over 10 different designs for just $1.24 each, mostly with prints like florals and polka dots. There are also those with cute fruit-themed designs for $0.88 to $0.99, depending on the design you’ve picked. If you like keeping it simple, opt for some plain solid-coloured ones at $0.89.
