Pinhead aside, is there anything more elegant than a thick, glossy bun? You know the kind that makes it look like you have tons of hair piled high? Love.
Here's the thing though: I don't have miles of hair. In fact, mine ends at my collarbones (and that's after a year of "growing it out"). So, when I try to wrap my hair into a bun, the result is a puny half-loop. Not a good look, believe me.
That's why I was so very stoked when I discovered the sock bun technique.
Now, I know some of you cringe at the mere name, but I can assure you it really works. For years, friends and co-workers have asked me how I get my bun so full and are always shocked to learn that the secret weapon is a small black sock.
Don't believe me? Give it a try. It might take a few attempts -- consider it a mini arm workout -- but once you master the technique, I'm confident you'll be bun-ing it all summer long."
