How to do a sock bun ♥

Hey dolls!

So this is a look that has been seen on loads of celebrities and surprisingly, with a little practice, is quick and easy to do. I think that it is a beautiful, sophisticated look that can be worn on the beach or out at night, depending on how it is styled.

You will need: 

A pair of socks to make the sock bun 

To achieve the big bun I suggest that you use both of the socks to make the bun shape. Simple cut off the toe area and then role the sock to achieve a donut shape. Once you have done this with one sock, cut off the toe area of the other sock and roll it around the existing donut to make it thicker.

A brush and some hair grips

What you need to do: 

Gather your hair together in a pony tail in the place where you want the middle of the bun to sit. I like the bun to sit on the crown of my head and so I do a pony tail on the top of my head. 

Take the sock bun that you have made....

.... and put it onto your hair like it is a bobble and then slide it down to the bottom of your hair.

Now this is the bit where it can get a bit tricky. You have to take the ends of your hair and tuck them around the donut shape, tucking them under the other side.

The fold the bun inside out, so that the hair is being wrapped around the bun. This can become a bit of a work out for the arms if your hair is long!

I like my bun to be quite large and so I pull the bun, in a similar fashion to if I was tightening a pony tail, to make it larger.

Then all you have to do is grip the bun to the head to stop it moving.

There you go - a lovely big bun! Who would know there was a pair of socks in there?!
