  1. Simple and easy - YAY! I just wind mine all up, but it doesn't look as finished, just held together with an elastic. Your's looks so much nicer.
    We've tried the sock bun for hollywood style curls at our place. Take a sock, cut off the toe and roll it up, then pull your hair together and wind it through the sock like a pom pom, so it winds and in out of the hole. My hair is quite thick, so I use two and go to bed looking like Princess Leia. Lucky hubby is a Star Wars fan. In the morning, I get dressed, makeup - then flip my head upside down, release my hair and run my fingers through it, stand up straight and va voom! Gorgeous big bouncy curls, with very little time or hassle. Marina:)

  2. Love this - totally going to buy one tomorrow! lol
