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
