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.

  1. Nice elegant hair,
    I still have to grow my hair though to put your tutorial to good use…
    I love your studded coat from previous post.

  2. Just watched the video and love it! I haven’t sat down to watch one and do do a bun of my own but now I’m going to try your technique. I find it amazing you don’t’ have to put bobby pins in!! Looks fantastic.

  3. Thank you SO much for posting this! I can never ever get it to work but I juit tried your way and it looked amazing!
    :D I’m actually going to start wearing my hair that way now!



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

  5. 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.

  6. Thank you so much!!! I have never been able to make a sock bun but after I watched this it was so easy. It looks great! Thanks a ton!
