Today we show you how to make a donut bun using just a pair of socks!
(And some basics you’ll definitely have on your dressing table.) The best part about this easy-peasy and super-cute style is that it works for hair of any texture.
What you need
- A pair of socks
- A hairbrush
- A pair of scissors
- A couple of black hair ties
- Some bobby pins
- A can of hair spray
And here’s how you do it
Begin by cutting off the toe of the sock. (Make sure you’ve chosen a pair closest to your hair colour.)
Now take the sock and roll it tightly into a donut. If you have thicker and longer hair, you can use more than one sock for the donut.
Brush out your hair to get rid of tangles and knots.
Gather all your hair and tie it into a tight ponytail using a black hair tie. Ideally, make it a high ponytail.
Once you’ve fixed your ponytail, take the sock donut and fit it around your hair tie neatly.
Now spread your hair evenly over the donut. Place a smaller hair tie around it to secure it and make it into a bun.
Gather all the extra hair and divide it into two parts. Twirl each part and wrap it around the bun. Secure it with bobby pins.
Use a hair spray for better hold and to make your bun stay fast longer. But make sure you don’t spray too much of it, or it’s going to take a long time to come off.
Add a pretty hair pin or accessory to dress it up!
Tadaa! Your sock donut bun is ready.
