This will make the rolling of a sock bun SO much easier! I found it to be difficult when I first started, so I found an easier way to have this awesome hairstyle. Hope you enjoy!
Make a ponytail wherever you want your bun to be. I prefer higher buns, but to each is own.
And, of course, make the donut shape with a sock rolled up. Don't forget to cut off the toe! You can roll more than one sock together if you have longer and/or thicker hair.
Now, put your hair through the donut, just like any other sock bun tutorial. I swear, it is different in a minute.
And evenly wrap your hair around the sock...
Now, instead of putting an elastic around the whole bun, pull the sock up until there's an inch or so of hair at the top, as you see in the next picture.
Now! The change! Instead of trying to just magically roll the bun AND hair down together (because it's not as easy as it seems), you want to put an elastic around the top of your hair, around the bun.
Like so... Only wrap it once though, or rolling it down will be hard.
And begin to roll it down. Don't worry about covering the whole sock just yet.
Once you reach your scalp, then it's time to adjust the bun. I like to pull hair from the center of the bun, tightening it, as well as making a bigger, cleaner, neater looking bun.
And this is what you're left with. Feel around and look in the mirror to make sure no sock is showing. Ask a friend or family member to look if possible lol. Nothing like having socks in your hair.
And the beautiful finished project. I swear, making that ONE difference in the regular steps makes it much easier! I promise!
