So, as usual, something on Pinterest piqued my interest. The best part, it involves doing something with my hair. You know, my normally unwashed, un-styled, braided and bondi-banded hair.
The best part of my newly discovered ‘Sock Bun Curls’ is that it involves minimal effort and no heat.
Here are my photo instructions, but this video does a much better job explaining.
First, put your hair in a very very high pony. Helpful tip, don’t make the pony too tight or you’ll get a headache. This is what happened to me the first time I tried so I gave up on them and took it out before my head exploded.
Next, dampen hair in the pony. I’m not sure what the proper amount is but I went for slightly drier than say towel dried hair. Then, take a dress sock with the toe area cut off. Roll it up, then place it at the base of the pony and unroll it to cover the entire pony.
Then roll the sock back down to the base of the pony, rolling your hair into the sock until it looks something like this… (ignore the makeupless bagsundermyeyes face)
Then, you do nothing. Sleep on it. Blog about it. Hope that it comes out cute so that you didn’t just waste your time starting this blog post.
…The next morning…
Wake up excited for your hair to supposedly look like this…
Feel flummoxed when it looks like this…
OK, so it didn’t work. However, I’m not giving up… yet. My hair was still a little damp when I took it out so I think it was too damp to start with. I shall try again! But in the famous words by Tim Gunn, “Make it work!”
Will you try sock bun curls so you can tell me if it worked for you? Please?
