Yesterday, when I was busy pinning my life away on Pinterest, I came across this video about the sock bun. This is probably the third or fourth time I’ve read (and watched videos) about the sock bun so I finally decided to try it out.
I washed my hair on Wednesday, but didn’t dry or style it and just threw it on the top of my head. It was still a little damp by the time 3:00 pm rolled yesterday so I just decided to try the sock bun thing to see how it would work.
For those of you that don’t know, a sock bun is a bun made out of a sock.
I cut the ends off of two dress socks, put one inside the other and then roll them up. I had to use two socks because one was way too thin.
So I put the sock bun in my hair like the video shows and left it in overnight…until about 3:45 am this morning. This is what it looked like when I woke up.
It was kind of loose, but stayed in just fine. Also, those plastic-y things are the ends of my extensions (the part attached to my real hair). I guess it’s time for me to get my hair done again.
When I took the sock bun out, my hair was pretty big and a little frizzy. I put some smoothing product in and kind of worked it with my hands a little to make it a little less crazy. And here’s the final look:
And here’s what it looks like from the back:
Not too bad! It’s a little big, but I think it turned out pretty well. The best part is that I didn’t have to curl my hair for 30 minutes. Keep in mind that my hair is fine, but I have a lot of it. It’s also a wavy, kind of frizzy mess (thanks, dad!). I totally recommend that you try out the sock bun. I don’t know how it works, but it’s pretty cool.
Oh and I have new nails for you, too!
Unfortunately, this O.P.I polish doesn’t have a name! It only says that it’s a top coat. Weird. Anyway, I got this from my grandmother (we called her Bobby) probably over ten years ago. She was a pretty cool chick that wore high heels until she was in her 60s (maybe even her 70s) and always rocked a fresh coat of fire engine red nail polish. I know she’d be pleased with my recent nail polish obsession.
I’m pretty sure this polish is rotting and it smells a lot like paint thinner, but I use it anyway. I didn’t want to use it as a top coat so I put about 6 coats on my nails to make them a dark gold.
I’ve never worn gold polish and I have to say that I really like it. Although, I have to admit I haven’t really tried a color I didn’t like.
HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT FRIDAY!!!
