How To: Sock Hair Bun

Hey Lovelies,

There are two type of people in this world, people who can naturally have luscious buns, and those who cannot. I unfortunately fall into the second category. I have thin hair that dosnt like to corporate. When i found out how to do a sock bun, my whole life did a 180. Instead of having flat hair the second day after a shower, i could simply put my hair in a bun. And making a sock bun was the EASIET way to make a cute bun. Weather  your looking for a quick hairstyle for school, or a chic look for a fancy event, this tutorial is gonna help you be the girl who “all the girls wanna be, and  all the boys wanna date ” .

And without further a do, i present the oh so famous Sock Hair Bun. da da da.

First, get a sock that is long, and cut off the toe part, as shown above. Make the cut as big as the other end of the sock.

Next, start at the end you did NOT cut, and start folding the sock into it’s self. Like your rolling it. Do this until it creates a donut shape.

Create a donut shape, once you have, then you have created your sock bun! (above picture) Congrats, its reusable! :)

To be easier for everybody to learn, i had my sister do it for me. However its super easy to do yourself as well, you will just need practice. Put your hair into a high pony (or low if you like). So in the above picture, my sister is putting the sock bun (donut) in my hair. Pull your hair through like you beginning to put a (hair pretty, hair pony, hair tie, hair elastic, hair band, etc) in your hair. The above picture is much easier to follow then this direction (<lol).

Take the ends of your hair, and put it into the bun, so put it where your pony tail is. Put the hair under the bun, and back into the hole. Spread the end or your hair around the sock, so that its more even.

This is the most confusing part, so keep calm. What you are going to do is to roll the SOCK with your hair up towards your head. You are doing almost the same motion as you were when rolling the sock up in the first part. So put your pointer finger underneath the sock, and your thumbs where you hair on the outside is (facing you), and turn all those finger as if you were were spinning a light in (like on your ceiling). Your basically rolling the sock onto its self. i would suggest that if this is to hard to do on your self, first practice on a friend, sister, or mom, so you can get how to do it, so then it would be easier to do on yourself.

When you get to your head, look in a mirror and fix anything that needs to be fixed. No clips are needed, as well as no hairspray. But do that if you need to!
