Straight from the Ken Paves salon in Hollywood, here are you salon approved tips to getting the perfect sock bun. As a regular sock bun user, I can tell you this takes practice. Don’t get discouraged if your hair fights you back when you try to roll it up.

  1. Put your hair into a pony tail. If you want a high fashion look, put the pony tail high on your head. If you want a simple everyday look, go more toward the back of the head.
  2. Take a clean sock and cut off the toe. Roll it up into a donut shape. You can also buy voluminous bun shapers from Conair that work better. They are harder to roll, but give you the perfect shape.
  3. Roll that pony. Wrap the hair around and around your bun shaper or sock by push the hair under and around. This part takes practice, but once you master it the effect is beautiful.
  4. Pin your fly aways and use hair spray to solidify the bun in place.

Pitbull Voices Bufo the Frog in EPIC

While he started in music, Pitbull is taking on a new role as voice over actor in EPIC. He said that his many opportunities have made him very grateful. Pitbull plays a frog, Bufo, and seeing and hearing himself in the film made him feel like a kid again.

“Only frog in the forest with a suit on,” Pitbull said his character is sure to start some trouble in the film. He has a great line where he calls Colin Farrell’s character “the pooper of parties.” Little kids will love that phrase.

The director of the film really wanted a musician for the role. They had Pitbull in mind before the character was even drawn. EPIC opens in theaters Friday May 25.
