there’s a sock in my hair!

A trouser sock, that is. One that long ago lost its mate to an unfortunate mauling by a Goldendoodle. I don’t know why I kept it in my sock drawer for all this time, but I’m glad I did…

If you follow the facebook page, you know that I recently discovered the “sock bun” — an easy breezy updo that takes about two minutes and zero bobby pins to create. Spurred by this pin, I scoured the Internet for a how-to. I’ll save you the work:  Check out this video to see how to rock the sock yourself! {Keep it in overnight for curls!}

  1. this is how we used to make our buns for dance recitals! they turn out perfect every time. and yours is gorgeous as an updo. fancy fancy :)


  2. I keep meaning to try the sock bun! I’ve done the “carrie bun” before but with lots of teasing and hair spray, haha, so a sock sounds much better for the hair! It looks adorable on you, and I am loving this outfit! Oversized blouses, especially in a pretty print, are my weakness!


  3. Thanks for sharing the link, Keira! My hair never stays up in a bun for very long. Now I’m itching to cut one of M’s socks (not mine, hehe) and try the sock bun. Your hair looks so pretty in it.


  4. I remember a gal in my ballet class would always have the perfect bun. Very much like the one seen here. While she had a handy dandy little tool that did this, I much prefer a simpler, and cheaper, option.



  5. I was so excited when I found out you could curl your hair with no heat and A SOCK. I tried it myself and got cute little flippy ends but no real curls since my hair’s not quite long enough for all the curls. I wonder if you could use a normal scrunchie to get tighter curls? Anyone have a time machine to the early 90’s?
