Has anyone else seen this commercial? It's a soft roller that you microwave and hook together to make waves. It's a commercial sock bun maker. Guess the public is catching onto sock bun waves! :bigtongue: Too bad they don't realize they can do it without heat and with a sock they already own. :shrug:

Woops, I'm so horrible with the search function on here.

I've never tried. I think the buns are too big and I don't need fake waves. Still think this is a funny product though.

Dunno if I saw the right one, but...
The thing I noticed is that they never show you rolling the hair around the whole thing, which is my big issue when making buns with this method.
Seems fishy and a waste of time IMO

Yeah that's why I'm paranoid about trying sock buns to get curls. I've been thinking about doing bandana curls but idk.

I think I've heard of them. I've never used one.

I have to agree with you there. I do wear a sock bun sometimes, but I hate rolling it down the shaft, so I just wrap the excess hair around the bun which doesn't look as nice. Also my hair tries to run away when I roll it up along the shaft. I'd like something like this, just without the warming thingy in it ;)

So about the whole sock bun thing...i found a bun maker on amazon..its literally 2 cents... its got the foamy material and theres a slot you put your hair in then roll down. Its flexy so it seems like it makes a good bun..its kinda like the hot buns but your hair goes in the middle so its easy.

Does this make sense to anyone/ does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Could you post a link? It sounds really interesting.

I did a sock bun... ONCE. Never again, they are not good for my hair!

I've found this (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Flexible-Metal-Sponge-Styling-Curler/dp/B00880AFMM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1356920494&sr=8-1), but there doesn't seem to be any way of securing the two ends together :confused:

You bend it in place. It holds by itself. There are tutorials on YouTube. You just bend the ends in or curve it in.

I have always thought I was the only one who couldn't stand rolling the sock against my hair. That is why I stopped using my Wrapter (http://www.wrapter.com/ordersWrapter.htm). You have to unroll it UP the hair as well. :::shudder::::

I see all these sock bun waves tutorials and I just cringe. I tried it ONCE. I failed miserably and just ended up wrapping the hair around it, too.
