We believe in beautiful hair styling that doesn’t damage your hair
We’ve developed a powerful little styling tool.
It’s called BLACKBUN.
The world’s first slow styling tool
The BLACKBUN uses gentle compression over the course of several hours to turn your hair into beautiful volume curls.
It is 100% damage-free.
There are many ways to wear a BLACKBUN. Our favorites are the high bun and the low bun on the side.
Learn how to apply the BLACKBUN to your hair
The BLACKBUN can be matched to any look – and any situation. The only rule: Have fun wearing it!!
SO THE BLACKBUN IS JUST A THICK HAIR TIE?
The BLACKBUN is really different from a common hair tie. The smooth and firm skin of the BLACKBUN is wrapped around some sophisticated insides. Its connective tissue forms a ring which is flexible but very resilient.
HOW DO I HAVE TO WEAR A BLACKBUN?
There are countless ways. You can simply plug it over your ponytail and wear it like a second hair tie (super nice if you match it to your style), or you can put it over your messy bun (looks dope and makes it hold ten times better). Or you can wrap your hair around it and let the bun shine through a little (in the back or in the front), or you can wrap your braided ponytail around it (for a touch of classyness),… If you like to wear it over night, we have some tips for you on our blog on how to enjoy a heavenly sleep while getting overnight curls.
DOES MY HAIR HAVE TO HAVE A CERTAIN LENGTH SO THAT I CAN WEAR THE BLACKBUN?
Yes. As long as you can make a ponytail, you’ll be able to wear a BLACKBUN. If you want to wrap your ponytail around it, however, your hair should be at least shoulder-length.
HOW LONG SHOULD I WEAR THE BLACKBUN IN ORDER TO GET VOLUME CURLS OR BEACH WAVES?
The longer you wear your BLACKBUN the stronger your curls will be, when you take it out. We recommend to wear the bun at least 4 hours. Don’t forget to dampen your ponytail before applying the BLACKBUN – only then the bun can reshape the hydrogen bonds in your hair. How to apply the BLACKBUN you can find here. Tips on how you can make your curls last longer you can find in our beer spray post.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE BLACKBUN AND COMMON CURLING DEVICES?
The BLACKBUN works completely without heat – which make it a very gentle curling device that doesn’t damage your hair. Here you can find some hacks on heatless curls.
HOW MANY BLACKBUNS SHOULD I WEAR? IS THERE A DIFFERENCE REGARDING THE RESULT?
Yes. Depending on what type of curls you want to have. The more BLACKBUNs you put into your hair at the same time the smaller and more resilient your curls will become. For example, if you make one ponytail and wrap it around one bun, you’ll get big, soft volume curls. If you apply two BLACKBUNs at the same time, for example one bun over each your left and right ear, you’ll get smaller glam curls. If you wear your BLACKBUN for a shorter amount of time, for example 3 hours instead of 5, you’ll get sexy beach waves. Which type of curls you will get after how many hours of wearing depends on your type of hair and varies from person to person. After wearing the BLACKBUN a few times, you will quickly develop a feeling for how it works with your own hair.
