Way to Curl your hair fast - Help

Ok, so I remember reading something about how to curl your hair fast.  I cannot remember who posted it or really anything besides that fact that the poster looked hot and had fabulous hair. 

I needs me a tutorial to get through the holiday season... and well, life in general, so that I don't look like a bum in the hair department.  It takes way too long to curl my hair and pin it up.   

You know you want to help a gal out and repost it.   Thanks!

    Are you talking about the one where they used a headband and twisted their hair around it in the evening and took it off in the morning?  I know that was posted a while back.

    I've also heard of a sock bun method that seems to work really well overnight.

    Yaga was the one that posted the headband one.

    Liv, I hate my hair. It takes soo long to curl, blow dry, straighten, anything. That's why it's usually in a messy bun on top of my head lol.

    Ohhh, I just bought a new curling iron because my old one crapped out WHILE I was curling my hair.  It was awesome.  I went to CVS with 3/4ths of my hair in pins.  I was a sight... pregnant belly and holding a toddler.  Hot stuff. 

    I was talking about the headband idea.  (I couldn't remember that until someone actually mentioned.  Brain dead much?)  Thinking that might be in order for Christmas Day.  I can do it after Mr. Man goes to bed and wake up with hot hair for pictures and brunch.

    The headband one didn't really work for me.  I am going to try the sock one next.

    The headband method is easy and surprisingly comfortable to sleep in. I recommend spritzing your hair with water or a little product before you wrap it to get the curls to last longer.

    I've also found that wrapping with bigger sections leads to looser waves and smaller sections get tighter curls. (Sound like a "no-duh" statement, but I had to play around with section widths to get the right look. My first trial came out way too curly!)

    I do this a lot and it works really well, but just be sure the pieces of hair you use in front are not too tiny (I'd say at least 2/3 inch thick). The curls in front tend to get, well, curlier while in the back they're wavier... I once did it with ittty bitty pieces in front and ended up with some kind of weird curly mullet looking thing.
