Socks and hair don't go together like hands and gloves

Ok, so after seeing this thing on Pinterest a while ago, I was all over trying the "sock method" out.

Sock method you say? What the freak is that? No, it's not a cheap version of augumentation, LOL. It's, believe it or not, a way to curl hair without using heat.

So the photo on pinterest linked to this tutorial on Youtube.

The image on Pinterest showed a beautiful set of messy curls.

My hair, after following the instructions in the Youtube video? Um ... not so much. More like a magpie's nest. Messy, sure. But nowhere near sexy and softly curly. So that was a bust.

Maybe I just generally suck too badly at hairdo-ing to get even the simplest of methods right? And no, I can't operate a curling iron for my life.

Is there anyone out there who has actually tried this with success and can offer some advice?

  1. LOL I have been doing something like this with my hair for almost 15 years. I hate curlers! Who knew? I could have been making videos. My suggestion? Buy some big clips and clip your ponytail in 2 - 3 places depending on how long it is. So as you begin to wind your hair at the very ends, you are not worried/preoccupied with all of the straggly bits. Remove the clips as you roll and get closer and closer to your head. I get compliments all the time and people find it hard to believe that this is what I do!
