My Thick Hair Sock Bun!

Everyone has been asking how I did this sock bun, so I will show you here! Now, if you have thin hair it may not look as BIG (big is an understatement) as mine. I'm positive it will still look fabulous with any kind of hair! I broke it down step by step. I hope this helps!! I'm glad I could post this because with the weather being rainy and snowy the past two days, I have not been able to take good outfit pics. I hope every is having a wonderful week! It's half way done!

Step One: You will need a sock, scissors, a hair band, bobby pins, and hairspray!

Step Two: Take your sock and cut the toe part off, so you can see all the way through it! My sock is rather tacky (to say the least) Ha, but I didn't want to cut a nice one!


Step Three: Roll the sock so it looks like a doughnut! YUM!

Step Four: Make a HIGH ponytail and secure with a hair band!

                                                            ^^ About that high ^^
Step Five: Take your sock and put your ponytail through it. Keep it at the end of your ponytail and wrap the end of your ponytail around the outside and through the middle. Like this...
If you see my hair has long layers, so some of the ends might get loose, but that's okay!

Step Six: Roll your sock doughnut and hair up all the way until its tight to your head! While doing this, during each roll, spread your hair around the sock doughnut!


As you can see it's kind of messy with loose ends and you can see some of the sock still!
Step Seven: Secure the bun to your head and any bumps or loose ends with bobby pins!! I don't know what I'd do without bobby pins! They are my life savers! Anyone else agree?

Step Eight: Last but not least, hairspray the bun and any flyaways outside the bun! Then, you go out and ROCK THAT SOCK BUN!!!!


Well, I'm off to my workout classes with a few of my friends. We do them every Wednesday evenings. We take Piloxing (combination of pilates and boxing), which is AWESOME!!! Also, we take Zumba Toning, which is just like Zumba, but with weights (also lots of fun)! Have a fabulous evening! XOXO

  4. Haha this is awesome! I've never seen anyone roll the hair up like that before... Probably because I have no hair. Mine doesn't have enough to roll so I just tease and pin! hah

    1. Haha! It is a very classic look! :) my friend has hair to her shoulders and she can do an awesome sock bun, so it doesn't have to be too long! Just use a smaller sock! :)

  10. It looks gorgeous! I just figured out this past weekend how to roll my hair to make a bun like that! I was always doing this weird half loop thing with my hair then tucking the tail into the hair loop, but this seems much easier!
