How To Create a Sock Bun

 I must have hair on my mind since yesterday's post was a flat iron review and today is all about the sock bun.  I know you all have seen these all over the place, and when I was out Saturday night with my friend Heather she had her hair in one of these ultra stylish up do's.  Now I'm going to call Heather out on how she is notoriously late everywhere she goes, she'll admit this as well, so when she and her husband were the first ones there, everyone was completely shocked.  I asked her what was up with her beating everyone there, and she let me in on her secret...the sock bun.  She said it literally takes 40 minutes off of her getting ready routine.  Wow!  I totally need to learn how to do this since I am always pressed for time, and I love to have fun new ways to style my hair.  So take a peak at a few of the pictures I found of this trending hair style and tell me if you don't agree, this is one fabulous look!

How do you create this look yourself?  Here's a brief, "how to" video to get you started. 

Now I know this is so weird to post a picture of a guy on my blog, but you have to go vote for him in the MACS/AMAX modeling competition. 
 His name is Lane and he's a friend of my sister.  Go here to vote for him....http://www.faceoffall.com/model_applicants/lane-gonzalez He needs your vote!!!  Isn't he cute????

Ok....back on to the rockin' hair style today....

  9. Shannon - my friend Alli is obsessed with this post. She tried the sock bun and ROCKED it the other day. She sent me a pic and everything. My hair has too many layers for it to work, but I totally wish I could pull it off. Is that you in the top pics?
