The Sock Bun


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!)

The Steps

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.
