Thanks to Pinterest I’ve learned all kinds of new hair tricks. A while back I showed you the no-heat headband curls that I tried out. Another no-heat method that was circulating around that same time was the sock bun curl method. Based on the pictures from Pinterest, this is what you should expect to get with sock bun curls:
So I bought some socks and rolled them up the way the instructions say, and I tried to put my hair up in the sock bun but my hair was too short (this was several months ago). This week on a whim I decided to try again since my hair is longer now. I put my hair into the bun, slept on it, and when I woke up, this is what happened:
The picture doesn’t even do it justice. It was so huge and puffy! My hair is naturally very flat and fine so I’m not used to a lot of volume. I felt like I had a lion’s mane. Michael called it Dolly Parton hair. While I love Dolly, her look is not exactly what I’m going for…
In addition to being huge only parts were curled while other parts were straight.
It’s fun to try, but I can now conclude that the sock bun method is not for me! Have any of you tried this method? If so, what results did you get?
