Another take in the sock bun! Push the sock down to the bottom of the pony tail. Spread the hair out around the sock and secure with an elastic. Braid the remaining hair wrapping it around the bun, pinning it down till its secure.
If you have absolutely stick-straight hair, use aluminum foil and a flat iron to create curls that seriously LAST. (I think this is awesome my hair like actually NEVER curls with heat so yeah. I'm gonna try this
Start curling: Place the flat iron about of the way up the strand. Close the flat iron and twist it away from your face one time, then pull it slowly down the rest of the hair strand while it's still clamped shut. I love flat iron curling
