I have hair that is about two to three inches above my shoulder, which is just not long enough for me to twist into a pretty bun. The hair rat is a great way to get a very nice, substantially sized bun.

The device is very simplistic in nature. It is a sponge covered with a mesh like material. The hair rat snaps together to form a circle shape (or bun shape). Think of it like a skeleton for the perfect bun.

The directions included with the hair rat indicate that the device should be placed at the end of the hair and then the hair should be rolled upward and the hair rat snapped together. If you have longer hair, this works. If you lack long hair, the hair rat will roll right out. Even if the directions work for you, good luck snapping the hair rat together without a pal present. What I did was create a ponytail. I then snapped the hair rat together and looped my ponytail through the hair rat. I then brushed the hair at the top of the ponytail upwards and over the hair rat and tucked it under the hair rat and pinned it. I repeated this process all the way around the hair rat, drawing the hair over, tucking and then pinning with bobby pins. The result was a very pretty bun. Note: This process is even easier when hair is wet.

Two things that I don't love: 1)I have blonde hair but my hair is a little darker than the blonde hair rat and lighter than the brown hair rat. If your hair is wound around the device, then you shouldn't be able to see any of the hair rat but throughout the day wisps may come loose and the sponge becomes visible. This is when it would be nice to have a variety of colors available so it wouldn't be so apparent that a sponge is beneath the perfect bun shape.

I bought this product for retro hairstyles, and since I have purchased bun rats before, I was expecting something A LOT different than what I received. First and foremost, this bun rat is not 8 inches long. It is just over 9 INCHES long, and it's also about 3 INCHES THICK. Not only is that too large for victory rolls or faux bangs, but you would have to have incredibly long hair in order to use it as a bun rat and I imagine the bun would end up being the size of your head if not bigger. The description, picture and the packaging all say/show it has snaps at the ends, but there are clearly no snaps present. Super disappointed with this product. Wish I had read the reviews before purchasing, but then again who really reads reviews on a bun rat?! Hopefully you do. I would not recommend this product to anyone. Most definitely will be returning.

I use this when I don't feel like washing my hair. I put my hair high up in a bun using this and my hair comes out so cute! i even get compliments from my husband when i use this. I have medium hair lengh (to my arm pits) and i'm still able to put my hair up in this. I've had to watch a few youtube videos to learn how to use this but once I had an idea i tried it once and was able to figure it out the first time. easy to use and super cute.

Much larger circumference than I expected, and with my very fine hair, it's a bit too big. Also, I saw the snaps in the picture but not in the description, so I wasn't sure what to expect - it has snaps, and now I will be using it as a bun roller rather than a rat for the 1940s look I was going for.

If I could give this zero stars, I would. I tried to use it, and the snaps on the ends are so loose that it will not stay snapped. (Like there's too much tension on the rat.) I thought this was a mistake on their part, because there are obviously snaps there, and the directions mention snapping it together. What else would the snaps be used for? I wrote to the company, and this is their response: "To better help & serve this situation, these don't technically snap, but help form the bun shape while placed within the hair-do." How, exactly, does the bun shape form if you can't put the ends together?? I can't send it back because the shipping is just not worth the cost. That'll teach me to order something that's not on Prime. Right now, I'm just thinking of using it to scrub dishes. Totally worthless otherwise.

My daughter has super fine hair and quite a bit of it. I was concerned that this was maybe to long but it came out perfectly. She was able to do her hair herself in under 3 minutes amd it came out awesome! There was some difficulty snapping it shut because it's squishy but it just takes some getting used it. It also works great for the pompadour bangs and victory rolls no ratting required. Easily takes bobby pins too

The snap always came apart and it was hard to work into my hair. My ultimate goal was to use it as a bun and occasionally use it for victory rolls, but I've found it hard to mold to my head. Not a good product at all.

I am an avid fan of the forties and fifties fashions and have bought hair rats before. This item has no snaps and is about twice the thickness of a plump hair rat. The package stated that it was a hair rat with snaps but there are no snaps present and there is no way this could be used for victory rolls or false bangs because the thickness is ridiculous.
