Aud One in AK: Sock Bun Curls!!

Sock Bun Curls!!

I am a member of Pintrest and love looking at new hairstyles amongst other things. One of the easy styles I found to try was a "Sock Bun" for rolling your hair. I wanted to try it for several reasons so last night my daughter and niece who are both 11 1/2  and have long thick hair, one with naturally wavy hair that usually OVER curls and one with board straight hair that won't curl normally, and I decided to give it a try so we rolled our hair on a sock according to directions from.

The only thing I did different was in the beginning where she suggests cutting out the original hairband, I bypassed that by tying a ribbon close to the head below the band and slid the band off before rolling. Then when I was done rolling I untied the ribbon and slid it out...No waste of bands and no ring mark around the head in the am from the band!!
Niece - straight hair- sock bun

Daughter- wavy hair- sock bun

Just unrolled the sock from her hair!

From straight to curly with no pins or rollers and it stayed up all night!

Wavy - Curled up in big bouncy curls!

No marks from hairbands or divider lines between rollers.

Thank you Pintrest and
