Sock Bun Curls

How about gorgeous, soft curls without any heat, curlers, or much time involved?  What do you need?  A hair scrunchy and a sock.  That's it!
This is my hair after I took my sock bun out.  My mom is constantly harping on me about how badly I'm damaging my hair with a curling iron, so this is a solution she loves!! :)
I'm going to let you watch the video at the end of this post on how to make the sock bun, since she shows how to do it so well.  Any instructions I would try to type would probably make you go "huh?!"  But the first step is to cut the end off an old sock.  Then put your hair in a super high pony tail.  I use a scrunchy (oh dig around, I'm sure you probably have of those old things hidden in a drawer somewhere!) so it doesn't make such a crease in my  hair.  
Now mind you, the girl in the video tutorial is not doing her hair for the purpose of curls, so her buns are low.  For the curls, you want the bun on top of your head.  I'm amazed at how well it stays in!  I can run, jump, whatever and the bun does not come undone!  Amazing that my hair is just rolled up in a sock!!!
