Sock Bun

posted on: Wednesday, April 11, 2012

I recently posted a photo on Instagram of a sock bun hair style I was testing out. I actually really liked it and it was such an easy, no fuss way of doing my hair I thought I would share a how to. 

I found a tutorial on Pinterest, and this is what I followed to try out this bun. I was worried that my hair was too short and fine to pull off this bun, but it worked out great and definitely gave my bun a lot more volume. 


  1. I've seen this idea and also thought my hair might be too short to give it a proper go, but it looks so cute I might just have to try it anyway!

  2. SO cool, it looks great too. I do not have nearly long enough hair for this though, too bad!

  3. Ashley, I love this tutorial! I am terrible at doing my hair. I usually just pull pieces into a messy pony tail and somehow attach it to the top of my head. At the end of the day, my hair becomes knot city and I can barely get the pony tails out.

    Now that I've seen this tutorial, putting hair on my head will be much easier!

    Love you girl.
    Can't wait to see our photographs!!! I will be checking dropbox religiously until they pop up ;)


    sending you happy spells

  4. So cool!!! Now I regret I cut my hair again :/

  5. Oh my I am soo going to have to give this a try.

  6. Oh my gosh... I LOVE how this bum turns out. I really need to try it. I always just try to loop my hair around and it always falls out!

  7. LOVE sock buns! I have somewhat thin hair and using the sock makes it look like I have tons!
