One of those things you've always wanted to do, no? Well, now you can! Follow these three steps to make your curling tool.

To start you'll need the following things:



A (clean) old sock, some scissors and a hair elastic.

Next, take the sock and chop off the toe part:



Lastly, take the sock in both hands and keep folding it over until you've rolled it into the following donut shape:



I then sewed around the loose edge to secure the whole thing but that isn't necessary.

Et voila - you're done (:

Now to get soft, curly locks you need to put your damp hair into a pony tail on top of your head (very attractive). Then take the ends of your hair and pop them through the hole of the ring you just made. Roll the hair towards you, continuously wrapping hair around the donut as you go. Finally, secure it in a bun on top of your head (if this isn't completely clear you can YouTube a range of sock hair videos for a visual). Just sleep with the sock donut in overnight and take it out in the morning to reveal fabulous hair!

Enjoy!

This is great! I'm going to have to try it; it's not very often I find a nice low-maintenance way of styling my hair.

The next time a sock disappears in the dryer, I'm so doing this. Will it work as a "bun-maker" to keep your hair pinned up all day too? Your instructions were so easy to understand too. I've read how to wrap your hair in stuff like that before and it never made sense.

Thanks everyone, glad you like it!

Thank you (: I'm sure it would work as a bun-holder-inner. I'd probably just put my hair in a hair elastic and thread the sock donut on top of the hair elastic (so it's near your head), then just keep wrapping your hair around and threading it over and under until you can't see the sock any more. Then just pin it in to keep it there and add some spray if you want to. Hope this makes sense!

Wow! This  sounds so easy! I am totally going to try this :0) I too have trouble figuring out what to do with my long hair.
