Sockbuns have been everywhere this year…from bridal to the redcarpet. And while some of the top-knot trends can be achieved many different ways, there is no substitute for the good ol’ sock bun! It’s called that because you actually use a sock! True story. Here’s how…
Grab some scissors and pick your sock. Any will do, however a few things to note: the thicker and/or longer the sock, the bulkier it’ll be, thus the bigger or more voluminous your bin will be! Want mega volume huge hair, then opt for a thick long sock! Average is always a good place to start if you’re not sure. Also, while the hair will cover the sock, it’s always a good idea to choose a sock closer to your hair color just in case something shifts during the day people won’t see your purple striped sock! Haha!
Cut the tip off. Doesn’t matter if it’s half an inch or several. What matters is that the closed “toe” is no longer there.
Now you have essentially a leg warmer!
Begin to roll the sock into a doughnut like shape.
Keep rolling until you reach the other end and…Voilá! Sock bun ready for action!
To put your hair up in one literally takes a minute or two! Fastest hairdo ever! Below is the video demo on how to put one in your hair!
Cheers to Socks, Buns, and Fast Hairstyles,
