Sock Bun Curls ~ Who Knew??

 

Who knew curls could be so easy?? Recently, I was checking out one of my favorite pages on Facebook: Nordstrom.. and the question was posed: What is your go-to hairdo for a night out on the town?  The answers were numerous and fairly standard…blah blah blah, until one jumped out at me. SOCK BUN CURLS… can’t say I had ever heard of it. So…did a little “googling” and found out its the new “no heat” answer to getting soft, glamorous curls.

The supplies needed: a sock…and some hair! My girls, 12 and 10, were willing participants to try it out (plus I do believe there was a certain amount of satisfaction they got from cutting old school uniform socks up!).

Here’s how it went!

 

All you need is a sock!

 

Cut the toe off the sock...then roll the sock into a "doughnut" shape

 

 

Put your hair into a ponytail on the top of your head...

Pull the ponytail through the doughnut

Starting at the top, pull the hair ends over the sock and start rolling down. Each time you roll, you will have more hair collected. If pieces fall out, just push them into the roll with your finger

All done for the night! It actually makes a beautiful bun that you could wear out!!

And…….the next morning, just roll the sock out!
Beautiful curls!

Not bad for an old sock, hey??

    Oh my goodness…that is amazing. Just had a trim, so I’m interested to see what shoulder length hair will do. Very very cool!!!!

    I wish my short curly hair was longer to just make the stylish bun!

  • Laura

    I love this idea, I am going to try it, thanks for tip.

    So her hair was dry when you did this? It looks amazing, but I don’t think my hair will hold curls like that without putting it up wet and letting it dry before taking the bun out.

      Best way to do this is to have dry hair and then spray wih some water to dampen it. If u try putting it into a sock bun with wet hair, it wont dry. We have tried it:)
