    It's been a long time since I wore a sockbun.
    But here are some old pictures:

    Absolutely gorgeous photos in here- I do wish I could pull this sort of hairstyle off myself, but unfortunately my hair's thin enough that there's no way it'd be able to cover the form underneath properly. A girl can dream, though! Maybe if I could find one that properly matches my hair color....

    Wow Eresh ~ gorgeous

    I have a hard time with the foam donuts these days but have better success with these bun makers.
    They were bought a few years ago on Amazon to accommodate my changing hair color, and they are now easier to manage with longer wispy hair.

    But I don't have enough hair/thickness to try any variations; my buns are so puny

    LOL great idea!
    I started with my socks and pantyhose legs when I had less length, but my hair was too wispy to use and the forms worked better.
    But then at Hip and TBL it was easier to use the bun maker; a quick roll up and done.
    The other way is too tough on my old bones these days

    I bet but I don't really use it anymore.... no point in spending the money on a bun form...

    I cannot even imagine what it is like at your length

    Covering the form isn't possible for me, I don't have the thickness lol

    But the strips are fast and easy, then I throw a scrunchie around it.

    Though this bun can get tight and I have a sensitive scalp

    Yeah that's why those pictures are from three years or so ago and why i used a sock. It's smaller but yeah it gets too heavy and very tangly because I have to start with a ponytail.

    I’m the only one who has tried the rosettes. I’m not pleased completely with the rosettes. I’ll try again soon.
