How To Make a Sock Bun

If you've ever admired someone's thick bun and wondered how to get the same look, then you're in luck! We're betting that 9 times of out 10, it's a sock bun and not at all real hair. We've seen some seriously massive hair buns and find it hard to believe that many people are walking around with that much hair on their head! This fun and easy DIY hair trick can transform your locks from limp to super thick hair bun girl. Such a neat trick - check out the tutorial below by Mr. Kate on how to get this cool look yourself!

With celebrities like Lauren Conrad, Kate Bosworth and Demi Lovato rocking the look, it's definitely an instant way to look super sleek and elegant in minutes. 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

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion

Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.
