Little Girls Can Have Sockbuns Too!

Most days my daughter won't let me do her hair.  I think she has a sensitive scalp or something, because she starts crying every time I brush it!  French braiding is apparently just as painful, but at least I can tell her she is going to look like Rapunzel and she will calm down.  I only learned how to French Braid a couple months ago and have only tried it a few times, but I love it!  

I wanted to create a cute hairstyle that would keep my daughter's hair up (since it was over 100 degrees!) and out of her face.  So, I decided to French Braid the top and pull up the rest of the hair into a high ponytail.  It was super cute with just the ponytail, but I thought maybe it would look more fun with a sock bun!  So I grabbed one of the kids' socks (its match was apparently stolen by the sock monster), cut off the toe part, rolled it up...and voila! Just the right size for a mini sock bun!
I'm pretty sure this is my favorite hairstyle that I have ever done with my daughter's hair.  What do you think of it?

  3. Totally awesome! How exactly do you do a sock bun? Wind the hair around the sock?
    I ended up cutting LC's hair in February. It was too long and got very snarly. Now it is a couple inches below her shoulders. Long enough to put up, short enough to keep snarls to a minimum. Win-win.

    1. Here is the link to the video I learned from...I am horrible at explaining it, haha. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I13J7ArHTkM

      It is sooo hard for little girls to have long hair, cause it always gets so dang tangly! I agree, that is definitely win-win :)

  7. That's so pretty!!! I'm betting it stayed up too!!! My nieces have really thin hair and almost everything just falls out, thinking this might stay!

  8. Absolutely so adorable! I've found a lot of little girls cry when getting their hair brushed except when someone else besides mom is doing it, then all is okay. LOL

  10. Ah that is way cute!! I wish that I could french braid, because I have been looking for something to do with my hair for the summer besides just a plain pony tail or messy bun! I am trying to grow out my hair, but it is just getting way too hot outside to leave it down! I'm thinkin' I need to learn how to french braid now... :)

  13. So cute! I love it and I bet after all that crying, she did too! I was the same way when I was little. I hated my mom brushing my hair. It HURT! Now that I'm older I keep my hair pretty short. This sock bun is making me want to grow it back out though!
