Sock Bun Fun

Lately the sock bun trend has become beyond popular and it seems like every time I’m on Pinterest there’s a new “easy” tutorial for it. Well let me tell you. I’m a pretty crafty and creative person and usually greatttt with hair but this concept baffles me! For the longest time I could not understand how it works. So tonight, my lovely sister and I decided to give it a try. We looked up several tutorials and tried to make our own that was pretty step by step. So here it is, our sock bun fun adventure!

First, take a sock and cut the toe off so it is more like a tube. Then, roll it so it forms a doughnut like thing. Put your hair into your desired pony height and secure it. Put the hair of the pony thru the hole of the sock. Bring it down to your hair tie. Then slide it up the pony to the ends. Curl the end of your pony over the doughnut sock thingy and begin to roll the sock down. The hair should catch in the sock and roll with it. Warning- it will feel and look like a hot mess at first bit keep at it! You’ll have to do some maintenance with bobbi pins to secure it just right most likely or you’ll have to spread your hair around the doughnut to make sure no sock is showing. Pin and spray that beautiful bun with hairspray- a girl’s best friend! And there you have it. Sock bun!
