My daughter is in her first dance recital this weekend and I couldn’t be more excited.
You can see a picture of her costume in this post, it is off the charts adorable.
Yesterday we got instructions from her dance teacher about hair and makeup, including how to do a bun. Penelope seems to have gotten her father’s hair color and texture, not my out of control thick hair. I know her hair will get thicker as she gets older, but right now her hair doesn’t make the biggest bun.
And so I thought, well, what if I do a sock bun on her?! If you are not sure about how to do a sock bun, it is really easy. The sock gives it lift and support if you don’t have long or thick hair. This is a great video that taught me how to do on my own hair a couple of months ago.
Thankfully Penelope was in the mood to let me mess with her hair, so I experimented with a couple of things and figured out a quick way to do the sock bun for a toddler. Instead of using a sock, I cut up some panty hose, rolled it up and wrapped it around her pony tail a couple of times.
You just open up the hair in the pony tail down the center and let it fall all around, then pin the hair with bobby pins over the sock (or panty hose).
And ta da! So much bigger and fuller!
Her natural highlights just slay me! I have to pay good money for mine. 🙂
