A couple of months ago I saw a thing on pinterest about sock bun curls. I thought, hmm, neat. I even watched this video about how to make the bun. I knew Andrew had an old thin lonely dress sock in his drawer that I could steal and cut the toe off of without him even knowing. Muuahahaha. (Well he knows now because after the bun turned out pretty well I ran in front of the tv and said, “Look at what I did with one of your socks!”)
I will say, at first I thought the bun looked a little old lady Pentecostal-ish. That is not a jab at Pentecostals. It is a jab at the way some of the older ladies tie up their long, uncut hair.
I thought just the bun itself looked pretty sweet. I mean, usually my top knots are little tightly twisted pointy things on the crown of my head. I can never get that full, messy bun look, you know? And we all want full and messy buns.
Midway through my hair-playing time I had some help arrive, thank goodness.
Sooooo this morning I wake up, all excited to unleash my head of sumptuous sock bun curls. The bun actually did stay in all night, which is pretty amazing considering how much I toss and turn with this whole side sleeping thing.
And this is all I got:
Maybe it would’ve worked better if I had put product in my hair…? Who knows. My hair doesn’t hold curl to save its life anyway. But I think it could work really well on someone whose hair loves curl! Still, I like the bun better. I put it back up after I took this picture, haha. Just call me Sister Heather.
Happy Tuesday, sweet petunias.
