Why, after having long hair for more or less the past thirty-some years, have I just today learned about a sock bun?? What rock have I been under? (don’t answer that)
It is amazing! Smooth, light, and just two Bobby pins to keep it up (I have layers). It isn’t tight or heavy, I don’t feel like I need to keep checking it, and it was super easy. And I like how the bun is full and even, as opposed to off-center and lumpy with bits sticking out, which is my norm.
I am not going to post instructions; it’s been tuted to death online – just go over to youtube and search for sock bun. And know that I am sporting one today. I used an orphaned black tube sock, and have plenty more to choose from.
