I absolutely love doing buns because they are the perfect go-to style whether you are having a bad hair day or you simply just want to put your hair up. There are several ways to do a bun, including using a sock. Today I want to tell you all about how to do the perfect sock bun!
The purpose of using a sock is to make the bun look much fuller so that even if your hair is short, you can give the illusion of it being much longer and thicker. No one wants a teeny tiny bun so the sock helps to eliminate that problem. It's fairly simply, you
- put your hair into a ponytail,
- put the sock on top,
- comb your hair over the sock,
- and voila, you have a bun!
I also have a step by step tutorial here for those that need more detailed visuals.
