Easy Heatless Curls and Wavy Hair!

If you love wavy hair, but don’t love the time it takes to achieve it with rollers, braids, curling irons, etc… here’s a quick and easy trick for some Heatless Curls and Waves!

First… you’ll start by making a Sock Bun.  A what?!?  Don’t worry ~ it’s easy!

First, you’ll need a sock.  These knee-high socks from Target worked like a charm for me!

Then… cut off that toe!  {ouch!}  I mean the sock toe, silly…

Now, roll it on up!  Starting at one end, just slowly roll, and roll, and roll until you end up with a donut-look-alike!

After you’ve rolled it up, it will look something like this…

So the nitty gritty is… you’ll put your slightly damp hair into a high ponytail at night, and roll it up into this sock bun!  In the morning… you’ll have some pretty curls and waves!  {how easy is that?!?}

The results will vary, but my hair is long and crazy thick, and I love the pretty waves that came with nearly no effort.

Anything that lets me snooze the alarm clock 4 extra times in the morning is a dear friend of mine!  Yes… I love you, Sock Bun!

Oh, and did I mention this is great for traveling, too?  I packed my snazzy little sock bun on our recent trip to California, and loved having an easy {quick} way to add some curl to my hair on vacation!

For complete step-by-step instructions… you’ll need to watch these 2 videos I stumbled upon on YouTube.  It will take a few minutes now… and will save you LOTS of minutes in the future! 😉

Now… go give it a try tonight, okay?  😉

It may take some experimenting with how damp you’ll need your hair to start off with, what products {if any} you’ll want to use on it, etc.  After a few tries, you’ll start to find the perfect formula for your hair!  Save time and have fun with your pretty Sock Bun Curls!!

    I saw this post a few days ago, and have been wearing my hair either in a donut or curly ever since! I love it! Funny thing is that I have had a hair donut for about two and a half years, and didn’t have a clue what to do with it. Now I do! THANKS!!
