Sock Bun (Princess Bun)

Today I want to share a secret that my sister shared with me! This is so cool. Let me introduce the sock bun.

You’ve probably seen this hairstyle on people like Reese Witherspoon:

Or Carrie Bradshaw:

So cute, right?

And who would have known this is so simple! Even I can do it!

It’s so easy and stays together so well. This picture was taken after an entire day of wearing it up like that. Let me also say that I have SUPER thin hair, and this really makes it look like I have thick hair.

At first I used the sock, but then I discovered the chignon (you can find these at a beauty store for next to nothing), and that makes it so much easier and I highly recommend it. That way, it matches your hair color and it doesn’t show through.

But here’s a YouTube video that shows how it’s done. You must check it out!
