We got home from our 10 days in NY late Saturday night. We lazed around Sunday and didn’t even start unloading the car until after noon. I had planned on just skipping the shower since the day was spent
sitting on the couch looking at everything that needed to be unpacked unpacking and doing laundry. Plans changed when my sweet 8 month old pooped all over me. Heres a tip: a few bites of prunes relieves baby constipation. The whole jar equals an hour of clean up and showering all parties involved.
After an evening shower, I didn’t want to fix my hair to sleep on it and remembered this craze know as sock bun curls. I found an old sock of the hubs and went to town.
This was right when I got the sucker in. Not too hard after I watched a ridiculous 8 minute YouTube video of some girl with an accent talking about how much she “looove dees gurls”.
The morning after shot, right before I was ready to hit the grocery store. Apparently, I don’t move too much in my sleep. That sucker stayed put pretty well.
Then disaster struck. What in the world. Next time, my shortest layers will not go up in the bun, or I will have my curling iron ready to fix them. They were sticking out everywhere.
So, I just pinned the bangs back because the curls were actually great. And big like Texas. Me likey.
I had a hard time taking a picture by myself that actually showed the curls off, so you’re left with some sweet camera in the mirror shots. You’re welcome.
I think this look is here to stay. Super easy and quick out of the door in the morning. I’ll let you know if I can ever perfect the layer/bang issue. Y’all have any tips? I’d love to be able to wear it down like this!
I love those big curls! I saw on twitter where you were trying it last night and was curious how it turned out! I might have to try this soon.
I tried sleeping on it once and my hair was still so wet in the morning, plus into the afternoon so I didn't tak it down until early evening am my hair was still wet 🙁 next time I'll partially dry my hair befor doing it.
Yours looks great and came out so pretty!!
Where are the full instructions on how to get the sock bun done? I neeeeed to try this!!!
Love the curls! I wish I could figure out how to make the sock bun work in my hair!

Super cute! It would NOT do well in my super straight, super fine hair, though!
I Love doing my hair like this! That disaster picture of you cracked me up 🙂 looks beautiful mama!!!
Yep. Mine did not look like this. Haha It was still too wet in the middle by the morning. So maybe I need to try it again LESS wet. Your's looks great!

haha, I think it looks great!! I've tried it before but I have SO much hair that it looked more like a lion mane. Yours looks lovely though!
I don't have enough hair to do a sock bun, but I would totally want to try it too. I love that you posted the picture of yourself when you first took it down. So funny! And I do love the results once you pinned those top curls back! So pretty!
I didn't have a good sock bun curl experience 🙁

Too cute! I think I have too many layers now though. 🙁
The curls came out great. For the bangs I would recommend soft rollers or using baby socks to make mini buns.
I've seen the same video with the accent. Is your hair really thick? I couldn't get all of my hair to stay in the sock, so I gave up.
