sock-buns are cool
Top Bun – Wedding Chicks, Bottom Bun – ME!
Your hair + a sock + bun = awesome. I suspect many of you fine ladies know this already, I even read about it on a blog last year and thought to myself, ‘I need to try that’ – but it was only today that I actually did. I always wondered how girls got those awesome, big, donut shaped buns on the tops of their heads, turns out it’s a sock with the toe cut off. The catalyst for me trying it was when Sharyn from The Edge tweeted Sarah‘s how-to tutorial. Video tutorials make the world go round I tells ya. Also, for those of you trying it – that second hair tie is crucial, without it my hair looked like a birds-nest mess but once you pop that hair-tie over, it tidies it all up. And for bonus points, we now finally have something to do with all those odd socks, yay! P.S I suck at doing hair, so if I can do it, you can do it better. I guess the thicker the sock – the thicker the bun? Video tutorial below, and more pictures and another tutorial here – plus a hilarious conversation on a guy’s take on sock-buns that begins with, “Let’s say you were making out with a girl and she had her hair in a bun. And when you went to touch her hair, you discovered a sock in it – what would you think?”. LOL
