The Easiest Sock Bun Hairstyle Method - Quick Tutorial

I learned how to make a sock bun today, and wanted to share my modified method because it's much easier than rolling the hair along with the sock doughnut. Try this: Make a sock bun donut, then put your hair up in a ponytail with it. Keep the sock unrolled; instead of unrolling it over the ponytail, lean forward and disperse the hair all around the doughnut evenly so you don't see the sock. Secure the bun with a hair tie (I use one of those Rainbow Loom rubber bands). Wrap the loose ends around the base of the bun and tuck in the ends under the sock bun. That's it! The excellent tutorial of the alternate method at Hello Framboise! blog is pretty much the same method as mine but shorter and more concise with photos; the blog also walks you through the traditional method. Have fun!

*Another helpful hint: If you need to adjust the color of the sock bun donut but all you have is a white sock, you can layer a cut up piece of tights or pantyhose / knee highs under the sock and roll them into a donut together.
