Bunday funday.

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.

Any other tricks to get your hair higher than heaven? I'm trying not to tease it after I was berated by my sister for ruining my hair, but I got to have big hair. It's where I keep all my secrets. 


  1. The sock bun is almost the only thing I did with my too-long hair for work for about 4-5 months leading up to the wedding. Best thing ever for the updo-challenged like myself.

    1. I didn't know you sock bunned! I was hesitant to try for so long with only ankle socks in my drawer and my super thin hair on my head, but am SO pumped it worked - and Annie had a sock. I could use a little more finesse, but whatevs.


I love comments! They may take a little while to appear, but they'll get here. Thanks!
