I hadn’t, but apparently, using a hair rat is the secret to getting a perfectly rolled top knot bun! There is a handy tutorial for using one right here . You can also use a sock, but it seems a little trickier. I think both are equally weird things to admit we ladies may sometimes stick in our hair, but hey, whatever works.
I do have to say, the Amazon “thought you might like this” recommendation module kind of cracked me up. I think we can all agree that a hair rat is not the most aesthetically pleasing thing to showcase in a thought bubble, yes?
