The sock bun is ingenious, btw. Apply them in crisscrossing x-shapes to ensure they don't slide around.
Have a great day! Welcome to the Ward Printable Comments I totally saw the show!! I thought you were so beautiful! I thought it was so funny when your husband said something like-this house would be great with out kids, but with kids…not so much!
Very beautiful and easy to make! I really love exploring hair styles.. Thanks for adding new tips! I have been wearing my hair in a bun 5 days a week lately. I had no idea they made scrunchies you could pin into. Comments I totally saw the show!! My hair is almost long enough. This is all you need to make the curls in the picture above. To do this you start with dry hair. Put your dry hair into a high ponytail.
Get it as high on top of your head as you can. I flip my head over and gather the hair to put into a ponytail. Secure the hair with a hair tie.
Now spritz just the hair in your ponytail with water. I would call it slightly damp. Remember you want it to dry overnight — if it is too wet it will not dry completely. After you have tried this a few times you will know the perfect dampness for your own hair.
Now grab your rolled up sock and put your ponytail through the hole. Pull the sock straight up to the tip of your ponytail. When you pull the sock to the top of your ponytail — slide it back down just a bit. With the hair that is sticking out spread it all the way around the sock evenly. After the hair is spread around the sock it should go up and over the sock and then get tucked under the sock. You should now have all of the ends of your hair neatly underneath the sock ring so you can begin rolling the hair onto the sock.
Start rolling the sock down so your hair is being fed through the hole, then up and around the sock. Now simply roll all of your hair onto the sock until you reach the base of your ponytail. Try to keep the ponytail straight up while you roll so that the hair is taught. There is no need to secure it with anything else. It will stay put perfectly just the way it is. Now go to sleep and dream about how beautiful your hair will be when you awake!
In the morning remove the bun and TA-DA!!! You have a head full of soft pretty curls. This is my new go-to styling technique. I have been doing this at least four times a week to my hair. It looks great all down, in a simple ponytail, or half up. I would do this for a fancy evening out or to curl my hair for an up-do as well.
So simple and so beautiful. Anyone can do this. It is nice to be able to leave the house and not feel like a mess for a change. This look is quite different from my normal hair in a messy bun because I ran out of time to do anything with it look — and it takes the same amount of time. If you are looking for a quick hairstyle using the sock bun curl technique, you can find one here:. Your hair looks gorgeous!
I love how it looks on you though. My cousin and I tried this the other day…And it worked! W The bun itself is actually super cute. It curled her hair really well, but mine not as much. Another good thing about this way of getting curls is no heat is used on your hair.
Heat is a real stressor for hair. That looks awesome, Kimmy! Wow Kim, what a fun idea! I am going to give it a try tonight and if it works for my super straight difficult to hold a curl hair you will officially be a miracle worker if it works as far as I am concerned. Hope it works for you as well as it does for me — sounds like you will certainly be needing all the help you can get saving time in the near future!
I am unbelievably happy to hear that you are expecting twins!! Congrats to you and your husband! I have a 4 year old, a just now 2 year old, and 3 month old twins. I cut it a little shorter just to make it easier to deal with when the twins were born but this makes me wish it was longer! I will be growing it out now! I have a couple of questions: How do you get the sock into that perfect puffy ring? My hair is only shoulder length, would this still work?
If the sock is too small there will not be enough fabric to make it nice and full. Make sure when you roll the sock into a ring to start from the toe end and roll up to the knee high end.
Now the hair that is sticking out gets spread around the circle — over the top of the sock — and then tucked under the sock — then you can start rolling it down. I was worried that my hair might not be long enough, but I might give it a try anyway!
My hair is long, but I have a lot of short layers. My only problem is I know when I put my hair in a ponytail holder, it leaves a mark even if my hair is dry when I put it in. I have baby fine hair though.
My hair is the same way, as far as the pony tail holder goes. I think it will be fine! Do you sew the two ends together, turn it inside out, or what? Thank you for informing us! Roll the sock starting at the toe end. Fold the open toe end down once and then roll all the way to the knee end of the sock and you should have a ring. Here is a video demonstration! I absolutely cannot wait to try this! My hair is thick but fine and has a bit of a wave to it anyway—so I hope this works! Try this sock-bun method http: I LOVE the method shown in the video.
I just recently came across your blog and LOVE it. I don't comment a lot on any blog but now I just have to because this totally made my day. Up to now I had only seen these ugly frizzy plastic "donuts" for your hair but socks are so much more comfy, they're besically free AND you can wash them from time to time!
Thanks so much for another lovely tutorial! My little ballerinas will thank you for this. Actually, the littlest one might not. She sort of hates having her hair done! But the older one and her mom ME will for sure!
I'm always envious of tiny hair buns and thin hair. The sock bun is ingenious, btw. Me and my sad scraggley hair will be looking for a black sock to try this out. I especially love your scarf!! OMG, I love this so much! I suffer from baby thin hair too. Now I need to find a brown sock. I've seen the little doughnuts for hair, but this is so much easier to make and personalize.
I have always wondered how people get buns like that. I had something similar for my wedding but it was behind my head so I didn't get a good view of him doing it. I"m growing my hair out at the moment, which means I'll need this info in, oh, about three years!
If not, please delete! These pictures are so cute to me for some reason. Like I can sense you smiling but we can't see it! Adorable, cute and easy! I've been practicing and I'm getting better but it's hard to do on your own head! My final dream as well. I should have grabbed a photo from her blog. Hey lisa, so you knew about it this whole time?? I love Jared's sense of humor — and that one of your instructions was to sniff the sock first. This is so cute!
I recently discovered this trick and did a review on the 'curls' it produces:
Sock Bun Studios - What will you B today? The tale of Sock Bun Studios starts in the summer of It was the summer of sock buns - also, the general summer I learned how to grow out my hair and style it. But, I digress. I was a recent college graduate, looking for a job and crafting my spare time away, throwing my hair into a sock bun most mornings.5/5(81). Pull your hair through the hair scrunchie. Twist your hair all the way around making sure that your hair is covering the scrunchie. If you have long hair like I do, keep twisting until it is all around and under the scrunchie. If you have shorter hair, just pin it as you go into the scrunchie. Have you heard of this sock bun? You really can curl your hair in your sleep with a sock. If you have ever ran out the door in a sweat, with two different earnings in, desperately trying to throw some bobby pins in your hair in hopes that you don’t look like a mess.
