Hair trick. Why didn't I know about this when I was dancing?

Recently my sister Lis told me about a secret she learned from the girls in her husband's academy.  The sock bun.  Basically it's an easy trick to make a big, beautiful, secure chignon (doesn't it sound prettier in French?) by hiding a rolled up sock inside.  Yep, a sock.

You can bet I had all kinds of puns ready for the title of this post.  But I just couldn't bring myself to commit to them.  Anyway, I've been doing this with my hair lately and it's the bees knees.

Here's a video tutorial from Youtube, since I'm too self-conscious to film one myself. This is exactly how I do it.

Anyone who has been a dancer knows there's nothing like a power bun.


  1. That's awesome.. but what's with the choice in music? I found myself getting angry.. hehe

  2. I've ALWAYS wanted long hair just to make a bun.

  3. Dang, my hair's TOO long for that bun!
