The Perfect Bun: Another Alternative Use for a Sock

After posting a tutorial of the sock bun a few weeks ago, I thought I would post another version that I love to do. This version is great because you aren't left with all that excess hair after you've hid your the sock in your bun, and you don't need any bobby pins! A bobby-pinless bun? Watch and learn, friends!

1-Find a sock that is similar in color to your hair, and cut the toe out of it.
2-Roll it up like a donut. (Don't eat!)
3-Pull your hair up into a pony tail. I like mine high up, but low looks nice and sophisticated too.

4-Put your pony tail through the hole of your inedible sock donut.
5-Pull the sock almost to the end of your pony tail, leaving about two inches of your hair out.
6-Holding your hair firmly against the sock donut, start rolling the sock with your hair still attached, down towards the base of your pony tail. You'll cover more of the sock the more you are able to roll.
7-Once you get to the base of the pony tail, you'll want to pull the hair to cover any holes in your bun.

You're all done! And like I said, no need to bobby-pin, your bun will be held in place on its own!
