Anyone can do a sock bun! Simple, fun and fast!
Here are the steps:
- Pull your hair into a high ponytail. For no fly away hair, use mousse for your scalp, and use a teasing brush to brush a flat surface on your head so there are no hair bumps. For a messy look, just use a regular brush or your fingers.
- Insert your ponytail into the middle of the doughnut (sock bun/mesh chignon), pull the doughnut to the very end of the ponytail and wrap the tail end underneath the mesh, roll from the top to the base of your pony. As you roll, you will feel your hair having to be pushed out evenly on the mesh/sock bun. Continue tucking your hair underneath to achieve your messy or clean bun. For a clean bun apply mousse to the whole tail so there are no fly away hair.
- Once completed, take bobby pins to even out hair surface or hair bumps. Also use bobby pins to secure the bun into place.
