Sock Bun Hair!

So, as I was browsing I came across a photo of a girl with pretty curls in her hair. Not tight curls, but gentle curls. The label was 'sock bun curls'. Sock bun? What the heck is that? As I looked further I found a video on youtube on how to use a sock to make a bun and/or curl your hair. {watch the videos! She is super cute with an accent and it explains everything you need to know about the sock bun}

I actually dreamt about this stupid sock bun last night so I woke up this morning thinking I needed to try it out. I stole a pair of my husband's black socks {sorry honey..they were sacrificed for the beauty cause} and went to experiment. After a few attempts, a tuck here and there, and a bobby pin or three this is what I ended up with:

And after wearing the sock bun all day long, this is what I ended up with at the end of the day. Not the same curls as the video but I'm not sure its because I didn't dampen my hair first or that my hair might not be quite long enough? Doesn't matter, the bun itself was a very cute up-do for a hot summer day.


  1. You look gorgeous! Love your hair in both pics. I definitely must try this! :)

  2. I've heard a lot about the sock bun- thanks for the link!

    I like your hair in both pics!

  3. this is the second time I went searing for this post- easy enough to find- 1st was to go back to the videos you posts, and this time to tell you that I am giving it a try today! my hair appears to be to short for this (I have a few pieces in the back that don't reach to the bun) but the good news is- It looks cut enough to run my errands in today! Score! I'll be sure to tell you how it goes for me
