Hair Tutorial: Beach Waves

I'm jealous. I LOVE long hair in soft beachy waves. LOVE IT!

YES Carrie Underwood.... I'm jealous of your long, golden, wavy locks.
{Not only that but you are gorgeous... and can sing like the dickens!}

Welllllll Mrs. Carrie... I know your secret!


Mom told me about ^^^this^^^ video so I decided to try it out.

Step 1: Find a single sock and cut the toes off. Then roll it in on its self to create the donut you see above.

Step 2: Wash and dry your hair (I left my hair slightly damp). Yes I know they say that curls last longer in dirty hair, but I have REALLY oily hair that I HAVE to wash EVERY DAY. So Wash and Dry, leaving your hair slightly damp.

Step 3:  Place your hair in a HIGH ponytail. Do a loose ponytail so that you won't get a crease.
Step 4: Dampen your ponytail. In the video she uses water to dampen her hair, I used a curling mist from Avon.

Step 4: Put the sock donut around your ponytail and pull your hair through. Starting at the tip of your ponytail roll your hair around the sock all the way to your scalp to create a bun. (Watch Video to see what I mean. Kinda hard to photograph)

Step 5: Go to sleep. Wake up the next morning. Get ready, do your make-up, brush your teeth, get dressed. Regular routine. When your about ready to walk out the door. Undo the sock bun and see the beautiful curls!

Step 6: Finger comb through your hair and part.

BAM beachy waves!

WARNING! Sock Bun technique may take a couple of tries to get it down. You MAY end up looking like a Who from Whoville!
