Sock Bun Curls

I finally did it...out of the 234 pins I have on Pinterest {Follow me!} I actually tried one of them out!

I've been hearing about this Sock Bun phenomenon for quite awhile now, and since all the cool kids are doing it, I wanted to give it a try.

For the YouTube video on how to do this, click here.

Here are my steps:

1.  Making sure hair is 98% dry, make a high ponytail on your head using a regular hair tie.  Now use your sock to roll your hair into a bun at the top of your head. {self portraits are NOT my specialty}.

2. Go to sleep!

3.  Wake up {please wake up}

Messy, but still in place!

4. Unroll hair.

Straight out of the bun.

5. Using hair spray, spray gel or a wave enhancer {like I did}, put in your product then style your hair.

6.  Enjoy not having to spend time with a curling iron!

The final product!

About an hour later!

In a clip.
Overall, I really think this will be a great way to get some volume in my hair most days. I still need to work on my rolling technique...I think this is why my hair came out more wavy than curly.

**Have you ever rolled your hair into a sock bun?**

  1. Your hair looks great! I've tried this before but my hair is layered and I can't get it to stay in the damn sock! So jealous!
