The thread used to construct these pretty hair bun covers consists of cotton thread with a metallic or pearl strand twisted in with the cotton before the thread is spooled. In the color choices for these snoods, the first part is the color of the cotton thread, and the second part is the color of the metallic fiber (e.g Black/Silver is black cotton thread with silver twisted in). These snoods really light up in the sun!
These hand crocheted hair bun covers in my basic pattern are great for containing your bun and keeping the "fly-aways" under control. They make a nice hair accessory by themselves for something pretty to do with your hair or you can pair it with a hair stick or two. I've sold a lot of these to Ballet and other dancers since they work well to contain a hair bun. The colors pictured in order from left to right are all in the regular size Gold/Gold, Copper/Copper, Ecru/Gold, Green/Red, Red/Green, Red/Silver, White/Pearl and Ecru/Pearl in the regular size and a Purple/Silver in the large size. More pictures to come.
The regular size bun covers are about the size of an orange and the large ones are more like a grapefruit when opened up. Regular Covers are $12.50 and Large ones are $17.50. The covers come with elastic cord in the last row which makes it easy to put on and adjustable to fit your bun. Some can wear it without the need for hair pins. I always add a couple of pins when wearing the bun cover by itself or pair it with a hair stick to hold it in place.
See my Etsy shop for more hair snood styles available. I will be adding more bun covers soon as well.

Yes, I made the snoods worn by Alyssa Milano on Charmed. The listing in my shop for a Net Beaded Snood Standard length is the same style that I made for the show. A replica of the Burgundy Snood she wore is the first one you'll see on that listing.
Yes, I have made several different snoods over the years for DMGM Creative Costuming with Disney, Florida. They are worn by Cinderella's dancers in the daily parade as well as several others have appeared in different productions for Disney as well as for shows on the Disney cruise ships.
The length of a snood depends on the thickness and length of ones own hair. If you have fine or average thickness of hair the standard length will work fine. My hair is average and just past the middle of my back and I wear the 8" length. I like having it up off of my back and level with my shoulders. If you'd like it to hang longer or you have longer and/or thicker hair you should go with a longer snood. I would also caution on the Net pattern that if one has very fine or layered hair you might want to choose another pattern. Since the openings are larger on this snood that type of hair may poke through the openings and look messy. A snood with smaller openings works better for ladies with fine hair.
All snoods and bun covers are made to order so please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery of those items. Hats and Renaissance Garb that I sell are in stock and ship out as soon as order is received and processed, taking no more than 2 business days.
