On my last hair post, Blog Wobble left me a comment mentioning a sock bun. I had never heard of it before and quickly jumped on YouTube (per her suggestion). I was amazed. How had a never heard of this before? You can watch a video about it here. There are two different ways to do it. After making a donut out of a sock like that video shows, you can roll your hair into it (like that video also shows) or you can wrap your hair around it and pin it. I tried it and was pretty amazed. But the sock showed through my hair. I didn't want my bun to have white sections poking through. That's when I found this amazing video. It showed this brown donut hair thing that hides better in your hair. It comes in blonde and black too.
I ran out and snagged one of these for $3.00.
I absolutely love it. So fast. I roll my hair in it. It takes 1 minute. It makes my bun look huge. Love that.
Here is a pic of what it looked like when I threw it in my head in the car right after I bought it. No mirror, no brush, no hair tie. Not bad!
Here's another one...
Then I decided to wear it at work.
Here's another pic.
Vanity is NOT my proudest personality trait :-)
I just rolled it up and used two bobby pins to secure the pieces that got missed.
