Video Tutorial: How to do a Sock Bun Perfectly

 How to do a Sock Bun

I wore my sock bun here to a friend’s wedding and about a thousand people asked me how to do a sock bun, I told them to “Just search  youtube for sock bun”  yet they all seamed to return saying their’s didn’t turn out right and they still wanted me to show them my secrets. I tried to record a video a few months ago but when my hair was so black it was very hard to see, so I scrapped it. Now that my hair is much more blonde I decided to try again- I’m sorry it’s not fancy, but It’s informative.

I also want to mention that it works much better with texurized hair, Silky hair doesn’t stay as well- so either spray it with a texturizer, use hairspray or just the mentioned Kenra Thermal Heat Activated Styling Spray on the ponytail and brush through.

Also make sure your pony tail is tight and secure or your bun wont be.

Keep in mind, my sock buns don’t always come out perfect the first time, sometimes I have to pull it out and start again, but I think the type of sock is the most important part. Roger is pretty sure these socks are Nordstrom brand (we got his at Nordstrom Rack) just make sure they have a thick, tight elastic band at the end.

Thanks for watching my first video! Make sure to “Like” my video and share it with anyone who you think might benefit!

With love from Hollywood,

  • You should try using a hair donut instead of a sock! BunQueen.com has hair donuts in different sizes and colors to match your hair!

    • I have tried them, they are much harder to use and I think my bun looks better with a sock!

  • Oh! It looks so nice when it is done and it seems so easy with your explanation, I have to try this soon :)

  • I’ve seen a million pictorial instructions on Pinterest, but I’ve never seen in done live! Can you believe? I always twist mine into a knot, but this looks 10x better. Spraying then running a curling iron over the top is, genius.
