It may seem a bit daunting at first but once you get the hang of it you can sport this stylish topknot whenver you want. All you need is an old sock that you can cut up!
Step 1: Cut the toe off the sock to make a tube
Step 2: Roll the tube so it makes a bagel/donut shape.
Step 3: Make a ponytail in your hair where you want the bun to sit
Step 4: Pull the ponytail through the middle of the sock and spread your hair around the sock
Step 5: Roll the sock down the length of your ponytail towards your head while rolling your hair around it as you go. Make sure you are covering the sock as you go along so it doesn't show.
Step 6: When you have reached the base of your ponytail, tuck in any stray hair or ends and do a final check to make sure the sock is totally covered with your hair. And voila!
