My roommate Sara recently conquered the sock bun, and every morning I’m jealous of how great her hair looks. I always ask her to teach me how to do it and she finally let me in on her process this week. The sock bun is a quick and easy way to acquire a chic hairstyle.
Check out how you can master the sock bun in just a few minutes with this easy-peasy sock bun tutorial.
It’s important to note that for this style, your hair needs to be at least medium length.
Get an athletic sock and cut the foot part of it off, keeping the long piece. Then roll the sock into a donut shape. Make sure to use a sock that matches your hair best. So, for example, if you have black hair, use a black sock.
Figure out whether you want your bun to be a high bun or centered on the back of your head. For a higher bun, put your hair in a higher ponytail or put it in a low ponytail for a lower bun.
Take the sock and put your ponytail through it, but leave the sock towards the top of the ponytail.
Take the ends of your hair and pull them over the sock and roll all the way down until the bun is taut to your head. Then tuck in any extra pieces with a bobby pin.
Congratulations – you just made a sock bun!
