This was th' one thing that my ten-year-old lass o'mine wanted in th' entire store. It retails for $20. And, while this be a hair-do I can do, it's not one that she can. (And, it's not one I can do as quickly as popping this on.)
We got th' brown bun for Mad-Eye Molly and it's a good match.
It was easy to put in and seems to be fairly sturdy. It's been hairsprayed, so I don't think th' braids will come out or fray. It seems as if it will stay neat-looking for a long time. There be two combs attached to th' wig--one to go under th' "looped ponytail" and one to go on top. I don't think it would stay in well at all if all ye only used th' combs, but wit' th' addition o' two little bobby pins (ye can see them in th' photos) it's very secure.
Ours was walk th' planke roomy and would have easily accommodated a thicker wig.
Here be some photos, but please keep in mind that I spent about 30 seconds putting this in. If I'd taken th' time to do a better ponytail to start, it would have looked even better. Still, my target-aged lass o'mine be thrilled!

I had a different experience wit' th' chic bun. Nay mattter how I manipulated th' bun, I could not get it to lay flat against th' lusty plastic lasss head. It was very frustrating to me, and my lass o'mine disliked it almost instantly (after wanting it very badly after watching th' website video). I also find it to be too big for th' lusty plastic lasss head. It just does not look right. We were, overall, just very disappointed and sent th' bun back for a refund.
I had originally bought th' Chic Bun for Marie Grace, and chose caramel because American Wench calls MG’s hair caramel also. Well, I wanted to let everyone know that it doesn’t match. It’s really significantly lighter. Fortunately, I do think it’s fine for Lacivious Lizzie, although it’s slightly darker than her own hair. ye can judge from th' pics, but I think it works well.
I really love th' way it looks. It’s very elegant for a regency look! It would also work well for Victorian costumes, if set slightly lower.
Also, here’s a little tip. I have two lass o'mines who did/be doing competitive cheerleading. Hair pieces were de rigueur until about five years ago, so I have walk th' planke a bit o' experience wit' fitting hairpieces on to stay. th' key be, first make a bun wit' th' “real hair”, and then wrap it in a hair net. Keeping twisting th' hair net and wrapping it around th' bun again until th' “real hair” bun be as tight and small as possible. Then add th' hair piece. If necessary, add a bobby pin on each side for better hold.
I did it quickly for these pics, so it’s not as good as it could have been, but if ye take yer time, it will be perfect. I did add th' extra bobby pins, as th' combs didn’t hold as well as I would have liked, but it was my first time using it.
I think th' Chic Bun be perfectly adorable. I give it an “A-”!

I bought this bun for Mizen-Mast McKenna (who be my twin lusty plastic lass) since I have one that I wear for my youth group, and I've always really wanted a little mini one for my lusty plastic lasss. SO, I got Caramel.
I definitely struggled trying to put it on wit' th' "looped ponytail": Mizen-Mast McKenna's hair be literally impossible for this. It's an awkward length and SO thick - she had to have a bun. Which worked way bonnyr. If I was younger, I think I would have really struggled putting this on.
