Ever look at the movie stars and wonder how in the world do they get their hair to curl like that.
I know I do but I don't want to go through the process of curl..hairspray..curl..burn..hairspray not to mention the toll it takes on your hair to curl it every day. Plus with long hair like mine it take forever!!
You can get huge Hollywood curls that last all day long and won't damage your hair in the process.
Does your hair not hold a curl? This just may solve that problem!
Do you ever do laundry and when your done only one sock comes out when you could swear you put two in to begin with. Do you stash it in a pile of other socks with out a match? Well go dig into that pile and find your favorite (clean) one because it now has another job!
What you will need:
spray bottle with water
hair tie, hair rubber band...whatever it is you call it.
I suggest using some type of smoothing cream as well. It makes the curls stand out more. I did not use it when I did it, but next time I will.
Now take that sock of yours and cut off the tip where the toes go.
For my really long hair I used a knee sock but you don't have to any sock will work fine.
Take your spray bottle and spray the ends of your hair.
You want your hair damp not soaking wet. The more water the longer it takes to dry and the longer your hair the longer it takes to dry.
(I do not have wavy or curly hair. My hair dries straight, but these pictures would leave you to believe otherwise.)
Take your sock and roll it up like a doughnut
Here is the sock all rolled up
Take your hair and put it in a high ponytail on the top of your head.
Then take a picture to see how silly you look
Take your doughnut sock and put your hair through the center of it..just like a hair tie. It is easiest to put it on at the top (like a hair tie) and then slide it down the the end. Leaving some hair ( 3-4 inches) at the bottom of the doughnut sock. Also note that the cuff of my sock is pointing down. Its the black rim you see there.
Take your hair and fold it up and into the sock
Keep going until all of your hair is tucked up and into the sock. Don't worry if there are gaps showing through. Once your hair is tucked in roll the sock up your hair. I couldn't take pictures of this because it requires both hands to roll the sock.
This is what your hair should look like when your done rolling. The more you do it the easier it becomes and the smoother your bun will look.
On a side note you can also wear your hair like this and nobody will know there is a sock in there. It gives the look of a full beautiful bun without all the work. I suggest that you don't wear it on the top of your head though....maybe if you work at the library that would be acceptable..but for the rest of us..I suggest wearing it a little lower..or maybe off to the side...princess Leia style anyone?
Ok moving on
Now you are going to sleep on your bun.
Yep go to bed your work is done for the night.
When you wake up in the morning unroll your bun. It might be a little sloppy and loose but that's ok. When you take out your bun you will get this
I did not brush my hair at all. The more you brush the more wavy look you will get. These curls lasted for the entire day. They did get more loose as the day when on but they were still curly.
