If you haven’t tried the sock bun yet, you really have to. Longhairstyles.com has a great tutorial here. It takes less than FIVE minutes, and you can change it up in various ways.
For today, I tried braids. Basically, after spreading the hair (step #5, if you’re following the chart on the link above) and before rolling it around the sock, you pick out 4-6 strands and braid them. THEN you roll it under and under, until it all stays put. I don’t even need bobby pins for mine, most of the time!
This picture is proof that I sometimes wear something other than jeans. Sheesh, what a Californian…
