The Perfect Bun in 3 Minutes or Less

You never realize how much junk you have until it's time to pack it all and move it. Seriously, is it necessary to still have the charger for my 2002 Nokia??? And who gave my son the boatload of tiny black spider rings I keep finding under the couch, beds, and any other dark area? There's so much stuff, and I'm not even a pack-rat!!

We are moving today, and I am exhausted. As I packed box after box after box, I began to wonder why there were so many toys, and if the boys would be just fine playing with sticks.

Though the sour box smell is permeating my skin, and days of eating fast-food is taking it's toll on my body, I refuse to give in to the urge to stop combing my hair and wearing an over-sized Looney Tunes t-shirt.

Luckily, I have a great go-to hairstyle for days when it just needs to be out of my face but not in a frumpy mess. It's called the "sock bun". On a scale of 1-10, 1 being easiest and 10 hardest, it is definitely around a 1 or 2 when it comes to hairstyles. And the best part is it looks cute and only takes a few minutes. Seriously, the tutorial video below is only about three minutes long.

So if you want to know how to make the "perfect" bun, please check out my video. Thanks y'all!
