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!}

    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!

    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.

    And those kick ass pants too!

    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.

    In short, I LOVE THIS AND WILL DO THIS.

    Love the sock bun. I’m trying to grow my hair out — and in that inbetween stage where it would be so lovely to just chop it all off — so this is great motivation for an easy hair do once it gets long enough. Thanks!

    Love the hair, the OOTD, and that Goldendoodle!

    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?
