Sock it to me!

Ah, Febru-hairy.  My favorite made-up month, as of this moment.

The idea, I suppose, is to try a different hairstyle every day.  My plan is to occasionally try something new, and also try different variations of stuff I already do.

Today I tried a different way to do a sock bun.  I discovered sock buns a couple weeks ago, but they use a lot of bobby pins and I always end up with sock peeking through my hair.

This way is so much better.

The video’s not the greatest, but it’s short.  In short:  Put your hair in a ponytail, cut the toe off of a sock, roll it up. Slip the sock donut around the end of your ponytail, and then roll the hair around the sock until you have a bun!  I like to tuck my hair into the donut a little bit more than this girl, mostly because it makes the rest of the rolling easier. Her look is a little drunkier messier.
