The sockbun is a style I never did, even when my hair was longer previously.

My hair is still barely too short to put it all into a ponytail (it should happen in a month or two, it's thisclose!

It's a little uneven, but I'm excited!

You can really see the difference between my natural color and the dyed portions. It just reinforces my dedication to growing out my natural color, because I much prefer it over the dyed color! It's a deepish medium brown with golden highlights (that don't show up too well because of all of the golden color in the dyed parts, haha! :D).

That looks great!
Noticed "Starting Over Again (March 2009)" -
Just had to let you know that was when I cut most of my hair off due to damage in order to start again.....
Good luck on your hair journey!

Eep! It's so cute! :D Isn't it wonderful when a new 'do comes into your life?

Your hair is growing so fast and it looks wonderful. Thick, shiny and healthy looking.

I really love the sockbun but I've only done it once. Threads like these inspire me to try again :)

Well done you i know how much easier it is growing your hair once you can wear it up..there will be no stopping you now :)

That's great KajiKodomo. I really love the sock bun but the last time I tryed it just went really bad! (I ended up with something like this :silly:.) But it's great to see your progress and great growth. And I really like your natural hair colour. :flower:

Ok...I went to 8 stores today (in and out of the mall) and cannot find the "sock" to make the bun. I guess I will order one online ;/

Have you tried to take an old sock, cut of the tip and then roll it into a "donut"? (If it's not too late?)

Yay for sockbuns!! :) It looks awesome.
I was just wearing one last night, they leave most excellent loose waves.
