I have thin hair. If you're around me for more than 24 hours, you've probably heard me lament about it. It's worse when I'm around my sisters for any period of time as they both have thick hair that I have seriously never seen look bad. Dirty, maybe. But their cuts are always great, it's always voluminous, and it styles. My wispy hair refuses to hold a curl and falls flat in less than six hours.
Before an afternoon in Georgetown a couple weeks ago, my friend pulled out a sock bun tutorial and in less than five minutes, she had the largest, most enviable hair. I was instantly jealous. She pulled out the partner sock, cut off to toe, rolled it into a sock bagel, and I was right there with her.
We followed this tutorial. This is seriously a game-changer. I think I've already mentioned it, but I don't wash my hair daily. That's really changed the texture of my hair and I've noticed that it's not as oily as quickly as it used to be. However, finding an up-do every other day is difficult. My go-to was the messy bun, but this is a quick and easy more-polished option.
It's held up all day too.
That, and it makes my hair big. I won't apologize for my Midwestern roots.
