It snowed for the first time this year here where we are in Colorado. I’m sure it has been snowing in the mountains, but down in the city, this week was the first! I was excited for it, and had to go out and take pictures, but I was having a bad hair day (aka it’s the day I don’t wash my hair, please don’t judge me haha. I read somewhere that it’s actually healthier for your hair if you don’t wash it every day, so I only wash it every 2-3 days). So I thought I’d try a sock bun! I’ve seen it on Pinterest and on YouTube, but have actually never tried it before until this week. Look at these pictures, and notice my bun! What do you think?
At first I was a little weirded out by how gigantic my bun turned out to be. I thought maybe it was a little too much, like I was wearing a fake bun. But then I kinda liked it, so I went with it. The more I look at it now, the more I love it!
Just a quick tip if you haven’t tried it and want to try it now, or if you have but didn’t have much success: If you hair is layered, it’s more difficult to roll into the sock, so start with the sock not rolled and then roll your hair and sock at the same time, as opposed to rolling the sock first and then rolling your hair into the rolled sock. If that makes any sense 🙂
So what did you think of my sock bun? Have you ever tried it?
