Sam’s Suggestion on the Perfect Sock Bun

by Sam P. | November 3rd, 2015 | Sam's Suggestions, Teen Fashion

hair bun (400x400)Many of you may see sock bun and think “that’s so 2014”, but sock buns are still quite the rage, but in a different way.  Give your hair a big, messy, cute look with a sock bun.  It is like the perfect messy bun, but far easier.  Whether you use a sock with the toes cut off that has been rolled into a donut, or an actual hair donut, roll your hair with it.  While simply putting it at the base of your pony and then looping another hair tie over it so your hair gets slicked down into a tight bun is far easier and quicker, a rolled sock bun is cute and still effortless.  If you don’t know how to do this, it is rather simple.

I prefer using an actual hair sock as I think it rolls easier and you can get one that matches your hair color, but a sock works perfectly fine.  Put the donut about halfway down your ponytail. Simply start to roll it down your pony with your hair so the hair rolls with the donut, like snow does with a snowball.  Keep tucking your hair in and under until you get to the base of your pony.  It may take a few attempts to get the hang of it, but once you do, the end result will be a messy and voluminous bun.
