The best clip-on bun will be one that matches your hair color and hairstyle and one that can stay put on your hair without hassle. It will naturally complement your own hair, outfit and the environment in which you wear it. You can choose a clip-on bun for any occasion, from casual to formal.

Clip-on buns are great for everyday, casual hairstyles or those that are needed for more formal occasions. Buns that can be clipped on can add extra elegance to your hair for a wedding, prom or black-tie affair that you need to attend. Offered at a fraction of the cost of professional hairstylist services, a clip-on bun can quickly and easily give you sophisticated results that can make you look put-together in an instant. Consider purchasing clip-on bun if you're pressed for time and are in need of a way to make yourself look great fast.

Select a bun that has a color that closely resembles your own. Incorporating a bun with a hair color that is too different from your own will call attention to your hairpiece and inform others of its synthetic nature. It might seem to be a little difficult to find a bun that matches your hair color, but there are things you can do to increase the probability that you'll find a perfect match. For example, if you dye your hair, you can look to the manufacturer of your hair dye for hair bun options; many companies that manufacture hair dye also make other synthetic hair products, and it wouldn't be uncommon to find that the manufacturer sells a bun that has been dyed with the same hair dye that you use.

Consider the style of the rest of your hairdo. There are many clip-on buns available on the market, and not all of them will flatter every hairstyle. Choose a bun that will go well with your planned hairstyle, to give the impression of a seamless appearance. For example, if you plan on wearing your hair loosely around your head, it might make sense to choose a clip-on bun that mirrors this looseness, such as one that is not braided or otherwise tightly woven.

Look for a clip-on bun that already has fasteners on it. Claws, wires and other devices that are used to fasten the bun to your hair should already be present on the bun; they also should be secure enough to hold the bun in place by itself. You shouldn't have to use extra bobby pins to make the bun stay put. Similarly, you can look for buns that have adornments such as rhinestones and associated accents already on them so that you won't have to compromise a bun's position on your head by trying to put on some adornments of your own.
