Sock Bun

Sock buns are a great way to upcycle your old socks instead of throwing them away. 
Here is the step by step way to put your hair up in a cute sock bun! 

Step 1.
Get an old sock and cut off the toe. Roll it up, put your hair down and then your ready to style.

Here is an example of "ready to start".
 Step 2.
Put your hair up in a high ponytail. How high you put up the ponytail is how high the bun will be.

 Step 3.
Now here's the tricky part. My stylist, (Thea) couldn't make this, so we went to her mom, an expert on the art of sock bunning. But the idea is to wrap all your hair around the sock starting at the tips of the hair and rolling your way in. This will take a few tries to look good, but the end result looks pretty cool.

The finished product!

  1. Your hair looks so awesome !!! For a totally different look you can put the ponytail on top of your head instead of the back.

    1. Thanks for commenting! Which do you like better? On the top or in the back?

  2. they are both great, just different looks. back is an everyday look and top is an evening out look. :P
