HOLY Crap! She was right.

Yea...I'm addicted to Pinterest, so I've been messin' around on there and saw this sock bun tutorial.  Like this gal I'm also a cosmetologist so I was skeptical.  Of all the tips and tricks we use, this is one we were never taught in "beauty school".  So last night, I figured "what the hell... I got nothing better to do, and no where to go, lots to do tomorrow and I'd be ok w/ some curls for the day".  If it doesn't work, I'll just wash and move on.  This lady used a rolled up sock, hence the name "sock bun", my daughter does competitive baton and Poms so she had a bun form that I bought, which is basically the same thing, only a little thicker and easier to use.  Let me tell ya, trying to roll that thing DOWN my pony tail while rolling my hair around it, was like trying to catch a soapy baby in a bathtub, I have layers, it was everywhere, I was QUICKLY losing faith.  I will admit I only did a half-ass job and gave up.  Good enough. The bun was a mess, there was hair hanging out, it looked pretty bad.  My daughter laughed, "Mom why did you put your hair in a bun to go to bed?"... yea yea...go to bed!  So eventually I went to bed, woke up this morning the bun was hanging half way down the pony tall...I'm thinking, "this is SO not going to work".  As I stumble to the bathroom, I pull out the bun and pony tail, shake my hair out a little bit, rub the morning crap out of my eyes so I can see half way decent and..."HOLY SHIT!  IT WORKED!"

This was only a half-assed job, imagine if I had actually gave a shit LOL.  I'm impressed and totally convinced they should teach this crap at "beauty school".  However, I guess if everyone knew how to do this at home, they would quit going to the salon. me who needs new color BAAAD, just ignore that part, I also cropped off my fluffy PJ pants.  It's REALLY hard to take a pic of yourself w/ two mirrors and a camera.  I can't believe it's not blurry.
