My new favorite hair style - how to make a big hair bun using a sock

This has been my go-to hairstyle lately - whether it's a 60's Mad Men style, Ballerina or because my hair is dirty:) It's easy and always glamorous. Here's how to make a big bun using a sock:

1.) Place your hair into a high ponytail

2.) Cut the end of a sock so that you can place out ponytail through it (the bigger the sock, the fuller your bun will be)

3.) Fan your hair out, making sure the sock is covered all around, then put a hair tie over it

4.) Take the remaining hair and split it in half

5.) Braid each side and wrap around base of bun.

Rhiann,

Just use a smallar sock (or cut it shorter) so it requires less hair to cover it :) <3
