Nothing pulls together a look of elegance more so, in my opinion, than a big, beautiful, voluptuous bun. Big buns have the illusion of only being a fashion that those with uber long and beautiful hair can master. Until recently when I pulled my hair up and into a bun it resemble the week geeky bun of the beauty salon. My bun got bullied hard core by the fatter, tighter, and more perfect buns. Thanks to Elle Canada and Loepsie I have managed to master the "sock bun" transforming my ugly duckling of a hair bun into a chubby beautiful swan.
(Take that bun bullies!)
A Sock Bun works great for shoulder length hair and longer. As long as you choose a sock that is close to your hair color no one will be able to tell that you have a sock in your hair.
Then roll the sock up starting with the missing toe, until the sock takes on a tight donut shape.
Put your hair into a pony tail, and slide the sock bun on to your pony tail.
