I have thick, medium- length hair with lots and lots of layers. Despite having the option of versatility, my layers make it incredibly challenging to do all of those super cute buns and updo's without a mound of hairspray and at least 50 bobby pins.
I've seen this tutorial hundreds of times on Pinterest and wanted to try it out. Turns out, my layers do like to wrap around a sock. So I came up with a solution that gets a similar appearing result but without all the trouble of rolling our hair in a sock.
The method is simple. Take at least day old hair if not two that is on the verge of greasy and make a high pony. Then take sections and spread them out while curling the ends under with your fingers. Add a few bobby pins to hold it in place. Spray and repeat until you create a faux sock bun as shown below!
