Has anyone ever wondered why it is that Lauren Conrad can put an old sock on top of her head and make it look so incredibly chic? Or am I the only one? One of my favorite go-to hairstyles when I haven’t had time to wash my hair, or when I just want it up and out of the way while still looking cute, is a bun. Well now I am going to tell you how you can achieve it and find a use for those awkward socks you got as a Christmas present last year from your out-of-touch great aunt.
Prep: Cut the toes off of the socks (easy enough right!)
1) Gather your hair in a high ponytail and secure it with a hair tie. If you want more volume, tease slightly.
2) Bunch up the sock to make a donut shape and put the ponytail through the hole.
3) Starting at the end of the ponytail, pull down on the sock/donut making sure to tuck your hair around it evenly.
4) When you get to the base of the ponytail, secure the bun with a couple of bobby pins and lightly hairspray it.
Voila! Now add a bit of red lipstick and a comfy scarf with your favorite pair of jeans for an instantly chic (and might I say comfortable) outfit.
