Faux Sock Bun

15 February 2013

I have thick, medium- length hair with lots and lots of layers. Despite having the option of versatility, my layers make it incredibly challenging to do all of those super cute buns and updo's without a mound of hairspray and at least 50 bobby pins.

I've seen this tutorial hundreds of times on Pinterest and wanted to try it out. Turns out, my layers do like to wrap around a sock. So I came up with a solution that gets a similar appearing result but without all the trouble of rolling our hair in a sock.

The method is simple. Take at least day old hair if not two that is on the verge of greasy and make a high pony. Then take sections and spread them out while curling the ends under with your fingers. Add a few bobby pins to hold it in place. Spray and repeat until you create a faux sock bun as shown below!


  1. I love the sock bun ! Looking forward to when my hair gets a little longer & I can pull the sock out again :)

  2. this looks great! And you don't have to worry about the dreaded sock showing through :) I started out with a sock then moved on to the bun-maker (I like the meshy texture and find that it holds my fine hair better).

  3. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first
    comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for rookie blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.
