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.

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.
