People are so trendy these days, I often admire ones who can make an outfit look like art. I pass as an “artist”. I can sometimes pass as a chef. Once thing, I rarely pull off is being a “fashionista.” Generally, I don’t do well when it comes makeup/clothes/hair/anything girly. You’d think if I can paint on a canvas, why can’t I master painting on my own face?! (putting on makeup). Don’t know what went wrong…went to a fashionable high school, have fashionable friends, but when it comes down to it, all I really ever want to wear is a hoodie, leggings, with my hair quickly tied up.
So when a friend of mine came to me and said, “you’d look good in a sock-bun”…I said “Que? No habla trends.” It’s all is a foreign language to me. Well, thanks to said friend’s 7th grade students, we learned a new, quick, tie-up-your-hair-kind-of trend. The Sock Bun. Genius. Immediately went home to practice. Turns out, you don’t need practice! That’s how easy it is. For once, I can pull of a hair-do, that’s not you’re generic old pony-tail.
My first (and pretty nice, if I do say so myself) attempt:
If you refuse to put a sock in your hair, H&M sells a donut-shaped bun maker. Works even better than a dirty old sock. After you master this, all you’ll notice is ladies walking around with giant buns. Now you know the secret. But hey, the boys don’t know.
