How to: Classy Sock Bun for Medium Length Hair

Lately, I’ve been enjoying putting my hair up while I’m studying for exams and I sometimes get tired of the same old boring bun. I find this to be way cuter and it takes me the same amount of time to do it. 

In order to achieve this look, here are the things you’ll need:

 Some optional things you might want to keep handy:

I usually like to do this hair style on second day hair as I find it to be more manageable. I used a brush to bring it all back into the ponytail and to make it nice and smooth.

 To get started just roll the donut sock inward while keeping your hair outward. Use your thumbs to keep the sock underneath the hair. The movement is pretty self explanatory once you get started you’ll get the hang of it.

Keep rolling it down until you get to the bottom of the ponytail. 

*I promise the look is not as intense as my face is here*

You’re pretty much done; all that’s left to do is to play around with it until you get it the way you want. You can also add some hairspray in order to smooth out the rebel hairs. Your hair should sit by itself but if you’d like more security feel free to add bobby pins or clips to secure it.

And...voila, you've got a classy bun on your hands! I really like this look, I think it’s perfect for when you want your hair out of your face as well as for more formal events.
Have you ever tried the sock bun? What are your thoughts?

  1. I am about to upload the same type of post haha! I couldn't live without my hair doughnut :)

    1. I can't wait to see it! I've just started doing this style, I'm considering buying a real hair donut soon hahha :D

    2. They're the best! And so cheap. Your idea is very creative though, I wouldn't have thought of using a sock xo

  2. Love this look! I actually bought the hair sponge thingy from ebay for like $1 hehe.. It's a bit simpler because I swear if I tried to do it your way on my own head... I would end up just cutting off my hair, I get frustrated easy like that! Wahahah :P

  3. Girls, I just looked it up on Ebay, it hadn't even crossed my mind to check there. To be honest, I didn't really give it much thought, it worked so well with a sock haha! But now I feel as though if I had the actual thing I would use it more. What size should I get?

  4. I just tried this so desperately bc I love that hairstyle, but it didn't work out :( I think my hair is way too short

  5. My feed seems to not be showing your posts! I've missed them! You work so hard on your posts and your really suit it like this(:

  6. Really love your hair like this, it suits you. I use one of the bun donut things, it's great. :) x x

  7. This looks great! I'll have to do this because I bought one of those things that hold the hair up in a bun, but I every time I used it I end up looking like I have a bagel on the top of my head.

  8. haha what a funny and clever idea!! can't believe you actually used a simple sock to create this beautiful, elegant bun. no one could ever tell! :P thanks for the unique and incredible hair styling tip. will definitely be trying this out! :)

  9. Thanks for your reply on my wall! I'm afraid my hair really is too short though and I have too many short layers in it as well. I'll just have to wait until it's longer.
