Shut The Front Door - I'm so excited about my new buns!

Ha! Caught your attention with that one, eh? NO house stuff today! It's a hair post!
So here is the deal. I have great hair! I'm not being a jerk here. I just have really thick, wavy hair that at age 46
(yeah - I said it!) is just barely starting to turn grey. I used to dye it but I don't even do that anymore!
I just got lucky. Or something.

So the thing is - WHY can't I get a great updo out of it? I see all these gals running around with thinner hair and
these uber-cute messy buns and such. I would try to do that messy ponytail pull-through thing. It just would not work.
I felt like my hair wasn't "floppy" or fine enough to lay over well.

Once again, I thank God for Pinterest. Or whoever came up with it! I found this gals YouTube tutorial for
a Sock Bun through THIS link from
Holy smokes. I literally watched the video once, went upstairs and skeptically grabbed a old sock out of my sock
drawer (who the heck needs a whole drawer of socks? Clearly a project for another day!) and cut off the end
and made my "donut". I must live in a hole. I have never heard of this before!
So this is first try. It was awkward and I felt like it was gonna turn out a mess.
Anyway, here are some horrible iPhone pics I took!

 Next I will be searching for "Turkey Neck Reduction"! Ew. Bad pic but I'm keepin' it real!
So. I am in love! I used one hair tie, my sock donut and that is ALL! No bobby pins or hairspray or nuthin! A+

Added later that night: Another huge plus! When I took my hair down that evening my hair had some great curl and body to it! Joy!

I was curious if you ever considered changing the
page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
