Pinterest Challenge! Sockbun Curls and Aspiring to be SherryTuesday, July 26, 2011
I've briefly mentioned my Pinterest addiction in the past (here's my Pinterest Boards in case you're curious). I discovered Pinterest through one of my favorite blogs, Young House Love. (My obsession with YHL has reached the point that when I have a new idea for our house my hubby first asks "is this from that blog again? That one you're trying to become?")
Well, recently over on YHL they announced that they were challenging themselves with a Pinterest Challenge. Rather than collecting pins, they would actually do one of the things they had pinned. I know. The interwebs are awesome.
I've decided that I'm going to participate as well! I went into my beauty board and found this pic that I had pinned. I must try out sock bun curls!
It was originally pinned by Amy from Life on Twentieth. Unlike most pins it doesn't link to the original source, but it looks like her hair, so I really think it must be her.

But, there is a problem. Did you see what Amy had underneath the pic? It says "flat iron curls". Yes, they aren't that hard, but they are time consuming and don't last very long in my hair. I don't have much time (hence the name of this blog). But, when I pinned it from someone else, take a peek at what it said instead.
Sock bun curls??? WTF does that mean?
Obviously I had to watch the videos associated with this different method. They were created by Loepsie and while it looks like it might take a few tries to get the hang of it, I think it will definitely work.
I'm off to find a pair of socks. I'll post pics once I've gotten the hang of it!
