For me, this is a fast and easy hairstyle using sponge rollers. As much as I love the sock bun I also wanted an easy way to get some curl in my hair without hot rollers or a curling iron. I love my long hair…..on most days anyway, but I won’t waste my days on time intensive hairstyles. My solution: use the same high pony tail as the sock bun with sponge rollers!
Here’s my hair transformation….
and my youngest daughter’s.
We have completely different hair texture and hers is a bit longer than mine. I washed my hair, dried it, and rolled it in sponge rollers. My daughter’s hair was not washed that day. It is unbelievably thick and she did need my help with the rolling. I will admit it took a bit longer for hers (probably 15 minutes total to roll) and required a bunch more rollers.
My hair washed, dried and put up in a high pony tail with sponge rollers.
Less than two hours later when sponge rollers are removed.
Hair finger combed and DONE!
Seriously. That’s it. You can even do this at night, leaving the curlers in while you sleep. I don’t find it uncomfortable at all. Take them out and let the hair settle a few minutes (easily done while getting ready for the
day), finger comb and you’re DONE!
I love the ease of this hairstyle. I don’t fuss with my hair and I’m terrible at braiding or putting my hair up in any way other than a ponytail. THIS WORKS FOR ME!
Here’s a picture of my daughter and and I about two hours later after the wind had battered our hair.
Here’s another day after hours spent outside. The curl has loosened but still has tons of body. (Me and Orville, or is it Wilbur? at the Wright Brothers Memorial in Kitty Hawk)
It’s cheap (you can get sponge rollers at the dollar store or Wal-Mart)!
It’s easy and doesn’t take a big investment of time!
It creates beautiful curls!
Try this easy hair solution and let me know how it works for you! I’d be thrilled if you’d pin it and tell other folks about it.
