rocks my socks

You know don’t you? You have figured out my secret!?

I’m wearing a sock in my hair!
(…Yes, I will pause while you do a double take…)

Have you heard of the sock bun? Or are you like me, and late to this sock bun party? Due to some recent hot water heater issues at my home (cold shower=crank, greasy Jessica) I resorted to said sock bun to mask my 2 day unwashed hair… and ladies (and gents) this rocks (my socks… hehe!)

Are you questioning the sock bun? I think it is only natural to second guess the viability of wearing socks in one's hair, but this seriously is my new favorite thing! I wish I would have known about this when I was in ballet... 1 sock and you are done, no pokey, hurting bobby pins, and it stayed put all day!

If you are ready to venture into this brave new world with me, I have two tips for a successful sock-bunage (these will make more sense after you watch the video)... 
1.) use a thick sock, the tighter your "donut" is, the easier this will be
2.) use a sock of your general hair color (i.e. brown/black haired girls use black/brown, blonde/gray hair girls use white socks).
I used black above, and while you can't "see" it, if I were to use a white sock I would fear accidental show-age)
Go forth and sock-bun


  1. I've totally been rocking the sock bun for months! It even works on my super thin hair. Okay, that sounds like an infomercial, but I sweat it's 100% true!

  2. Love this blouse...and sock buns :)
