Well, I have extremely thick hair, so we - my bestie and practically-sister, Meredith and I - decided that I would need to split my hair into two pieces and create two buns. Mer helped me roll the socks onto my hair. And by helped, I mean did it for me. Here is the result!
We didn't have to hold the buns with pins or anything; they were very snug and secure! So anyway, according to the blog that I pinned, all I had to do was sleep with these awesome Princess Leia-esque buns and unroll it the next morning.
After a slightly restless sleep - partly due to the buns, partly due to a pinched nerve in my neck, and partly due to the sheer excitement of how adorable I would look in the morning! - I awoke and unrolled the buns. And VOILA!
Looks great, I know! The only thing I had to do was unroll, comb through a bit with my fingers, and clip in a barrette! Next time, though, I am going to use a small amount of mousse, just for longer hold. All in all, the sock buns worked exponetially better than I had thought they would!
Until next time,
