You gotta love a good Sock Bun! :)
I sure do. It's an easy up-do that can be made to be made to look sleek and preppy, or messy and casual - you can basically use it for any occasion - love it.
Small, big, low on the neck, high up on the head, or another fun version; low on the side like beautiful Kate Beckinsale on the picture below.
Sock buns are getting increasingly popular, rising to the challenge both in fashion and with the celebs - how often haven't we seen these two ladies below with their hair up in a twist? ;)
There are several techniques on making the perfect sock bun, and one thing is for sure - you'll need some tools!
You can either use the donut....
The Donut covered by fake hair....
Or you can go old school, and make a proper Sock Bun by creating your very own sock donut!
I have to admit that I'm a fan of the donut below on the left, though the sock idea is really neat.
I guess the best part about using the actual sock is that you can custom make the size to fit your exact needs! Nifty right? :)
There is one bad thing however when using this option, and that would be color matching for your hair... if you're blonde and use a black sock it might be very visible through the hair, depending on the thickness of your hair of course.
