I have had long hair for the majority of my life. When I get bored and unhappy with my looks I’ll go radical and have 8-10 inches cut off. Everyone tells me I look ten years younger and I’m happy. Then I proceed to grow it out again!
I posted about the overnight sock bun here. It was all the rage on Pinterest and I loved it. Basically, you take a dress sock (I stole one from my hubby. ‘Cause you know socks disappear anyway 🙂 Cut off the toe and roll the sock up until it resembles a scrunchie. Then you put your hair into a high ponytail, put the sock at the end of the hair and roll up into a bun. Here’s a video that will help with that explanation.
My hair after I’ve rolled it in the sock bun.
Pardon the freaky red tint (my hair is not that red) but here it is after I take it down from the sock bun.
And here’s my hair once I’ve finger combed it. I still love the ease and curl of this hairstyle.
But I do have another easy way to get even more curls. I wrote about it here. Sponge rollers. Who knew I would go back to that after so many years!?
Honestly, long hair is easier for me. It takes less time. I can throw it in a ponytail and go or use the sponge rollers or sock bun and have as much curl as I want. My last hairdresser said she wouldn’t cut it for me because she loved my hair.
The pic on the right was recently taken by my niece Jennifer who is beginning her photography business. There will definitely be more to come from her! The pic on the left is from at least 6-7 years ago. (And yes, I’ve gone lighter and more auburn as I’ve aged.)
So, which do you like from the pics above? Long hair or short hair? What do YOU do when you’re bored and unhappy with your hair?
