Sock Bun on girls

Have you ever heard of a sock bun??  You can check out about  tutorials on Pinterest if you're interested.  Kate I call that bun-on-top-of-your-head look the "blogger bun" because so many people at SNAP were sporting the look.  I want to grow my hair out just so I can wear my own hair in a blogger bun.

 Instead of using a sock, I bought this handy mesh-covered foam donut  - - it's kind of weird looking:


It makes for really cute buns.  And on girls they are over-the-top - love it!  There is a smaller size donut thing to buy, but I don't mind that kapow look on them.  I guess you're supposed to roll it down, but here I did more of a poof and wrap method:


Compare that to my younger daughter who is just rockin' a regular bun - just not as mammoth.  They have the same length hair.  They both love having that big bun, so I think I need to invest in another donut thing.

My 3 year old even rocks the sock bun. It's a great way to add volume! Your girls are too cute.

I love these hair donuts! I just bought one last week - - definitely beats using an old sock. I don't think we even have any tube socks I could have used :/.

I've seen so many cute ideas for buns using these, and I can't wait to try them out; I got so many compliments just wearing the "traditional" bun!

Love your blog - - just getting started out myself. Thanks for sharing all of your craftiness!

I can't wait for my hair to be long enough for a sock bun, because you just cannot get that volume without something in there... whether it's a sock or a donut.

I love those, I just bought one for myself this weekend!

They're so cute together!!! I could see this being an easy hair do for those busy school mornings!
