Hello upstyle

I'm always looking for a hair bobble to tie my hair back. Cooking, cleaning, when I would walk my son to school I would look frantic to for a hair bobble.


Years ago i thought of this,

I haven't copied it. ( well I don't think I have).

If you think its daft and silly please comment, my son thinks so haha..

WE all have spare sock's waiting to be paired up with its soulmate.

I did have a pile. I do wonder where they go?


Odd sock & hair Ties. How would this work?.

You will need

Odd Socks and scissors thats all.

My odd socks

Start by cutting the elastic from the top of the sock

In a nice straight line. one cut

Like so

The elastic in the top of the sock makes a excellent hair tie.

You will get this hair bobble no sewing needed

Saving so much time.

Very fast & easy.

I carry on with the rest

Like so

My hair bobbles

That's how fast it is.

Saves time in the morning

Them dreaded odd socks waiting around, use them to tie your hair back.

Hope you dont think I'm silly lol.

No one will know, plus you can use any colour to suit your outfit it's a winner winner for me.

I will never look for a hair tie again haha.

Thanks for reading

There was a pink odd sock so I added that in to.😍

For hair bands,bobbles, hair ties there perfect.

Especially if your quickly looking to tie your hair back.

Plus it's a great way to use all the ODD socks up in the sock pile.

    That is a really cute idea. I could not tell you how many socks I have thrown away over the years. Very nice recycling idea.
