Have you ever wondered how ladies with hair that’s not particularly thick manage to create those huge, beefy buns? Aside from a bit of volumizing product, there’s one other thing that’s used to create this look, and it might be a bit unexpected: a sock.
Sock buns are nothing new, but if you haven’t heard of this little hairstyle secret before, you’re in for a treat. All you need is a tube sock and a hair elastic to pull off this effortlessly gorgeous style. Simply snip off the toe of the sock, then take the end and roll it back on itself to create a “sock doughnut.”
Amp up your hair’s volume by using Jack Black – True Volume Thickening Shampoo in the shower, then Leonor Greyl – Mousse Au Lotus Volumatrice before you blowdry. Once your hair is dry, pull it back into a high ponytail and secure with the elastic.
Now, take the sock doughnut and position it over the end of your ponytail. Fan the hair out over the doughnut, then roll it all the way down your hair until it meets your head. Tuck any loose strands underneath and you’re done! Easy and chic! Just make sure the whole sock is covered.
